AMENDMENTS TO THE CARTOON LAWS OF PHYSICS
Amendment A: A sharp object will always propel a character upward.
Amendment B: The laws of object permanence are nullified for "cool" characters.
Amendment C: Explosive weapons cannot cause fatal injuries.
Amendment D: Gravity is transmitted by slow-moving waves of large wavelengths.
Amendment E: Dynamite is spontaneously generated in "C-spaces" (spaces in which Cartoon laws hold).
- The process is analogous to steady-state theories of the universe, which postulated that the tensions involved in maintaining a space would cause the creation of hydrogen from nothing.
- Dynamite quanta are quite large (stick-sized) and unstable (lit).
- Such quanta are attracted to psychic forces generated by feelings of distress in "cool" characters (see Amendment B, which may be a special case of this law), who are able to use said quanta to their advantage.
- One may imagine C-spaces where all matter and energy result from primal masses of dynamite exploding. A big bang indeed.
