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!
