Did You Know, a domino can topple dominos 50% larger than themselves?

Have you heard of the Domino Effect?

Gary Keller and Jay Papasan discuss this effect in their book, The ONE Thing.

Linked to the Domino Effect is the 1st Domino Principle.

Lorne Whitehead wrote a piece in the American Journal of Physics that he’d discovered that a domino can topple dominos 50% larger than themselves.

Using Whitehead’s research, if the 1st domino is 1” in height…

  • The 10th domino would be the size of a 6’ tall man.
  • The 18th would be about the height of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
  • The 23rd would be taller than the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
  • The 57ths would bridge the distance between the Earth and the moon.
  • Did you know this?

    • Yes
