Surely it was the weight of the rope/tape pulling the rest of it downwards after some point?

The tape is not nearly long enough to explain a free fall that long. It is almost certainly the weight of the tape pulling the rest of it down once the nut has hit the bottom.

How does having a tape of insufficient length to plumb a mineshaft prove it's not a mineshaft?

Do you mean it fell for too long given the length? Well, yeah in a frictionless vacuum, sure. The depth would be just over 2800 meters in that case.

I mean more likely explanations are: terminal velocity, bouncing off the sides/outcroppings, and friction from the tape as it slides against the edge of the opening slowing the journey to the bottom/end of the tap.

I'm about 80% sure that they found a weird hole then went down about 2m and the guy who got down there noticed that he could duck in a little crevice and not be seen from above. So then they filmed the cool tiktok of the guy yanking down line as fast as he could.

Is a deep well the biggest impossibility in this thread?

At first I thought the weight of the tape was keeping it going after a bit, too. If you watch at the end, the tape snaps taut againts the cross member he's attached it to.

I half expected the string to be unsecured and lost to the hole.

I'm going to have to do something not that different in my place, because the builders cut a 2-gang hole for a 1 gang socket, so my choice is either a) lots of hassle to fill half the gap and paint it, or put in a double and not have enough room for the full architrave.

That's probably a 50m plastic tape (might be a 30m) that's been unwound out of it's case. Even with case they weigh about a kilogram so given there was no change of speed whatsover in the unwinding and a big swing when the tape went taut, it's almost certainly hanging. Without the weight of the bolt the momentum of the tape wouldn't have been enough to pull through the friction of the coils of tape and it would have stopped after a few meters. This is what happens if say you try and throw it over a tree branch without a weight.

As to the idea someone below is pulling out the tape. Anyone who's ever handled that type of tape regularly will know exactly how absurd the idea of pulling it in by hand at anywhere near the speed of gravity is. (Hint: Utterly and completely.)
