A Gnome in Danger!
British teenager Kyle Smith has been charged with reckless behavior for placing a gnome on the edge of a shop roof. Firefighters had to come and rescue the gnome. For some reason the firefighters were more concerned about the safety of the people below than about the gnome. I wonder if anyone has ever been killed by a falling gnome?

Impact force of a falling gnome = Mass of gnome in kilos times (( Height fallen in metres times 9.81)squared ) in Kgs IIRC.

An dit takes about 0.5Kg to break the skin and three times that to break a bone. Far worse than a falling penny off the Empire State I suspect.
