Matt's Moderately Useful Fact of the Day
According to one of my professors (who should know) if you're ever stuck in a falling elevator, you should lay down on the floor with something beneath your head and with something else covering your face. This should help you survive impact. The business about "jumping" right before impact doesn't work...unless, of course you're Superman and can jump as high as the elevator fell, which isn't likely outside of a science fiction film. And there's of course the matter of the elevator ceiling you'd have to crash through.
