I have heard this as well, and may have been known to threaten my roommates to accidently push them from a window while studying for a difficult test... so i decided to look it up, first i searched gw and found no reference, then i searched the net and found that it is listed at snopes and it is unfortunately not true. here is the link for anyone interested
