The secret revealed
Now try to crush it top to bottom.

How about something even heavier?
Not easy to do is it? If I had 4 or 5 tubes taped togehter, I could probably stand on it without any fear of falling. Ok, lay the tube on it's side and crush it.
Try to crush it. Hard to do huh?
Now lay it on it's side and push. Much easier isn't it?
