terminal velocity is attained from something above 60 feet...I don't remember how fast it goes but after falling 60 feet it cannot attain more speed than it had in the initial 60 ft...so if they only went say 100mph (prolly an underestimate) that's still less force than getting hit wth an paintball.

everything has the same terminal velocity, but the distance it takes to reach it is different due to wind resistance, friction and what not. in a vaccum, the distance would be universal for all objects

I think it sounds gay and that you'll never get that plane off the ground.

in a vacuum, everything has the same terminal velocity, basic law of gravity

crap, i was afraid this would happen. i just said it cause it sounded funny, ive seen flame wars break out over petty little scientifi facts. im not saying this is gonna be a flame war cause it seems pretty tame but i think we should just move on....
