It doesn't stack, if it did jumping out of bed each day would equal a 100 foot drop.

[up]Consecutively, with no recovery time, and still surviving? I think it stacks.

Okay but but how does it help sherlock? it not like the TV show runs off the unreal engine and isn't coded for fall damage.

[up]It's how he knew he'd survive the fall.

By throwing a man out of a second story window a few times and then adding up the different?

Look, I don't agree, I'm just clarifying what Erock was saying.

Anyway seeing how a study in pink never explain which of the cabbies pills was poisoned I have a sneaking feeling they are not going to tell us how he survive the fall.

[up]The pills didn't matter, though. They weren't essential to any resolution. The fall...kinda is.

I actually have a theory on the pills.

wild mass guess The pills weren't poison. They were medication for his aneurysm which is only deadly to people without any aneurysm, and both bottles had the same type of pills, so he was safe no matter what, and the other person was dead no matter what. wild mass guess

I mean, why give the victim 50/50 odds when you could make it dead certain?

The cabbie thought he WAS certain. He would make the first move and he was so confident in his ability to read people, he thought he could get them to pick the poison one. As he said "It's NOT chance, it's chess."
The last hurrah? Nah, I'd do it again.

And my theory was that he was so certain because both of the bottles were poison for the other person, and not poison for him.

I don't think aneurysm medication works that way.

 638 Yuanchosaan, Wed, 10th Oct '12 1:12:55 PM from Australia Relationship Status:

Pretty sure no medication works that way. That's a ridiculously potent on-target effect which can kill a person in a short time but only treat the patient. With no side-effects.

I suppose you could conjecture that he's been built-up to a massive dose (of what - beta blockers? Not likely to kill that quickly) or that the Sherlock universe has magical drugs, but there's nothing to support that.

Shut up!
It's more likely that he used subtle cues/body language/mind games to make sure the victim picked the right bottle.

Didn't we all agree on Iocaine Powder for the pills?

[up]But iocane only grows in Australia, which we all know is populated entirely by criminals.

[up]Yes, Australia! And you must've suspected I would've known the powders' origin, so I can clearly not chose the wine in front of me.
