Negative Gs on public transport/cars

Postby spinning man » Wed May 30, 2012 7:35 am

While coming back from my college on the bus, there is a bridge. For some reason the bus has to go fast up towards that bridge and so when the bridge is reached, there is sometimes some negative Gs (not much). Only once so far has some proper -Gs happened to me in that bus. Very fun when standing up. Have any of you lot experienced -Gs on public transport before?

I definitely have while in an airplane when it hits an air pocket. It feels like someone pulled your seat out from underneath of you.

^Air pockets are so awesome. Terrifying, but so much fun.

I remember years ago on the school bus, there used to be this huge pothole in the road and because we were stupid kids, we would bounce up and down in the seat when it was coming. There were a couple of occasions when someone hit the roof.

I did that back in middle school with the speed bumps. It was so much fun trying to jump at the right moment to hit airtime.

In a minibus, for some reason my friend had his seat belt undone. We went over a bump and sure enough he hit his head on the roof.
I have nothing intersting to say here. Have a nice day! :)

Sometimes on the freeway, there's spots where it feels like the car drops from under you for a split second. Also, one time we were heading up to visit my cousin and the road we were taking was windy and hilly (short camel-back hills). Just about each of those hills gave me very light stomach butterflies which was sweet.

Also there's this hill by my house that kind of 'double dips' but unfortunately it's at a curve. Sometimes I get butterflies if that double dip is hit at the right speed (still being within the speed limit).

Lastly, though no airtime, it feels kind of cool taking off on a BART train, when it slowly pulls out of the station and then suddenly feels like it's being pulled along by something either forcing me into my seat or pulling me away (depending on what way I'm facing).

The road next to me has some great airtime if taken at the right speed.

Back in High School, coming back from track meets from Santa Barbara, there was one bump on the 101 Freeway that always provided a lot of airtime.

Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.
