Hi my friends, what is the difference between falling into a well(ditch) and falling from a tree? Do you think this question contains any academic or intelligible value that worth answering?

I suppose falling from a tree would be less painful and dangerous compared to falling into a ditch. Falling into a ditch would have a chance of you being tossed around and scraped by the walls of the well and if the bottom is empty, then you're in a world of pain. Compared to a tree, which is usually present in a place with grasses around to break your fall. Also, if you fall from a tree you can just stand up but if you fall in a well then you are sort of trapped.

Hmmm...well...if you fall into a ditch...you have to climb back out. If you fall out of a tree..you just have to stand up..provided you are not injured.

You make me stop to think of an intelligible answer. I cannot think of anything but conclude that both falls are hurting and can be fatal.

Hi Zandi and my beloved myLotters, thanks for your kind and intelligent responses. There is no wrong answer to this question and the effect of the fall should not be considered a fatal one but only a mishap. So the difference is only a physiological one...you climb up the tree before you fall and you fall into the well before you climb up.

Both events are clearly very painful. I would guess that falling into a well would be somewhat worse because your body would bang around the sides of the well, it would be terrifying not knowing what is at the bottom and if there was water drowning would be a strong possibility, if not entrapment and not knowing whether you would be found and gotten out would be horrible. Falling from a tree would be scary too but at least psychologically a little less traumatic. Both scenarios, not real good though!

I don't know about the value but I do know that Falling from a tree - painful, might broke some bones, alive if the tree is not tall enough, if you're fine you could just walk away before someone laugh at you. Falling into a well - painful, might broke some bones, probably alive, alive if there's water and you could swim, wet if there's water, you need to climb back out or get some help. Happy Mylotting~~~

If you fall into a well you may drown and if you fall out of a tree you won't, unless you fall into water. I don't want to do either, Thank you

If you fall inside a well, then you will get stuck there and might even drown. If you fall from a tree, then you just fall to the ground. And you will not get wet.
