terminal velocity

ok, just looked this up;
terminal velocity is when a falling object reaches zero acceleration. heavier objects tend to have higher terminal velocities.
a skydiver, arms and legs outstreched, has terminal velocity around 125 mph."balled up" around 200 mph.
i think being hit on the head by a falling skydiver would be deadly.
just my opinion

This has gotten way off topic, and the original topic has pretty much run its course anyhow.

Time to put this one to bed, methinks. Say goodnight, Gracie.
