For it to fall, the center ends of the horizontal orange blocks have
to go down. Since the outboard ends are resting on vertical blocks,
they would have to go up when the center ends go down. The outboard
ends can't go up because the weight of the upper blocks is too great.
No, it doesn't. Good job engineering by the 6 year old... The weight is
mainly transfered to the outside, so the center support isn't holding
much weight. He's got two* times the weight on the outer supports as the
inner, so it stands.
*This may not be 2.0000 times, it's just roughly 2:1.
Wise is the man who attempts to answer his question before asking it.
