Kids, don’t try this at home, but an experienced adult with nerves of steel can quickly whip out a tablecloth from beneath expensive china place settings without doing any damage.  He would be relying on Newton’s first law of motion which says that objects tend to keep doing whatever they were doing.  If they are...
