I am chuck Norris. I can survive anything

Well um you are still falling at the same speed so yes you would die

Both...

You'd most likely die.

depends on which floor of the building.

Report as

depends how high are jumping .

wow...what are they teaching in schools these days? Did you not take physics? When you are falling off the building you will be going one constant speed which is dependant on your weight. this will make no difference if you are on the chair or not. Most likely you wouldn't even be attached to that chair as you were falling anyways, but lets assumed you were, it would make no difference if you jumped off the chair at the last minute as you are still going the same speed as you were falling originally and you would splatter.

Actually your speed is not constant; you fall at 120 feet/persecond,per second.
See the awesome story of the first man to go from 0 to 614 mph. (9/10 the speed of sound) in free fall from over 100,000 feet.

Lol yes , it dose not take a rocket science to figure that out :/ , but like since the pressure from the air is hitting ur chest makes it hard to breathe so u will die b4 u hit the ground but tht also depends I how high is the building but nevertheless jumping off wat are the chances u will hit the chair u will get hurt :(

Probably not either if it was a 40 story building and jumped out of a low first floor window and landed clear of the chair. Otherwise your chances for injury or death increase with height.
The laws of physics are natures laws, as in gravity, are strictly inforced so that the greater the infraction the greater the punishment. No judge or jury need be present to determine whether your DNA will remain in the gene pool or be lost forever. Isn't natural selection efficient? And you get the freedom to choose.
