So does this mean such a material-x cannot exist?

comment Does juggling balls reduce the total weight of the juggler and balls?
After thinking about this, I don't buy the $t_{\text{hand}}$ = $t_{\text{air}}$ thing. If I launched the balls a mile into the air with a cannon, acceleration is much greater, but the time in the air could still equal the time in the cannon...
