Your suggestions of spinning and vomit were not far off, gentle readers. And like Dorothy, this young man was probably trying to wish himself home when the photo was being taken.
This bizarre moment was a test given in the Air Force. The original caption read: “Subjecting the prospective American airman to the falling test. The sixth sense–that of equilibrium–is the function of the labyrinth of the internal ear. Underwood and Underwood., 03/19/1918 ”
This week’s photo also seems to be some kind of test, so coming up with a caption for this week’s test should be as easy as falling off a log. Give us your wittiest caption in the comments below!
