Jim & Yahtzee's Rhymedown Spectacular: Cabin Fever

Oookayyy......
I see the gay furry porn takes his toll.

Jim has an... interesting... way of rewarding viewer loyalty.

Both poems were really clever and the homoeroticism in Jim's made it all the more enjoyable >.<
Now excuse me while I search for rule 34 on donkey kong ─=≡Σ(((つ^ω^)つ

Bindal:

Thunderous Cacophony:
Terminal velocity of a human: ~192 km/h. (Figures are unavailable for man-sized turtles and mushrooms are not available at this time.)
Falling for ~6 days, or 144 hours.
Total distance fallen: ~ 27,648 km.
Diameter of the Earth: 12,762 km.

I don't know where the Mushroom Kingdom is, but the planet must be significantly lacking in density if people aren't being crushed by gravity.

You're assuming
a) that a koopa is infact falling as fast as a human (they probably fall less)
b) that the koopa was falling for six full days - while he obviously didn't have the full first and last. So cutting it down to around 120 to 130 hours instead of 144 makes more sense.

Also, may I remind you that in the Mushroom Kingdom, overweight plumbers are able to jump several meters in the air?

I've got some time to kill, let's address this. (Tools used: Terminal velocity calculator, Surface Area Calculator, Drag Coefficient chart.
a) The largest turtle I can find was 152 cm long and weighed 395 kg. This seems about right for a Koopa; a bit shorter than the average man, but much heavier due to shell weight. With a drag coefficient of 0.42 (approximately semi-spherical shell) and a surface area of approximately 72,583 cm squared, we have a terminal velocity of 15.7617 m/s, or 56.74212 km/h using Moon gravity (see C). Much slower now.

b) Let's assume the Koopa was on the morning shift, and he fell in at 10:00 AM on the dot, and hit the ground at 12:00 PM the next day (they needed light to shine down to illuminate the bottom to see the pile of dead Marios.) That gives us 122 hours of fall time.

c) Physics is wonky when everything appears normal but men can leap high into the air, so I'm assuming Moon gravity (~16% of Earth). This is wrong, given his ability to run normally instead of bounding along, but I can't be arsed to work out how he manages that.

So our final math is...

Terminal velocity of a Koopa: 56.74212 km/h.
Time Fallen: 122 hours.
Total distance fallen: 6922.53864 km.

The Koopa has fallen past the radius of the Earth, which means someone else has to calculate the size and density of the Mushroom Kingdom to work out how such a thing is possible.

At this point I just assume all Jim's poems are about Holmes. A donkey they dispenses sugar or whatever I already forgot sure sounds like Holmes.

Why would I blame myself? I loved that Jim.

Jim's line at the end sounds like a challenge, listen to each and every disturbing poem as they come? I accept!

Also; wondering how many dead yoshis, abandoned to make a farther jump, were at the bottom of that pit.

Goliath100:
Escapist, I think Jimmy is trying to say something. Maybe Bobby have a poet in him, because Jimmy seems like he want out.

Reminds me of that quote from Baldur's Gate, "I have a skinny man inside me, screaming to get out- but it's his fault for standing too close to the buffet line." ;)

Yahtzee's was great but I was holding out for Jim's sonnet to his new goddess Vertigo and the lovely times they must be having. Instead he's just been depressed with a Kong in the cabin...

Mario does jump several times his own height so I'm assuming there's a somewhat lower gravitational force in the mushroom kingdom.

EDIT:

Ah, you seem to have addressed that in a following post.

This is too much fun to surrender so soon. I have way more sights to show you.

So you did use that new book for inspiration!

Reference for people who want to know what book I'm talking about.

Good, bring on the mind fuckery!! Yahtzee might be the more skilled poet, but your end up being more interesting.

Is that a challenge?

Guess Jim finally discovered why they call him "Donkey" Kong. It's not because he kicks people in the head, now is it?

Classic! Specially Jim's versification of a journey of self-discovery (although the journey took place while stranded). Masterpiece. Which will also remind me to pack my bags to travel through bad weather with games such as X-Blades and Extreme Beach Volleyball, in case of mischance.
Overall a great, great, poetry session!
I feel more cultured already.
:)

I was thinking the same thing during Jim's video. People will complain, but they know it's coming.

Also, sympathy for poor Mario?

Is there no such thing as adaptation?

I love it when you guys write poems from a game character's perspective, especially from Mario World, which was a nice change of pace from last week's.

Was I the only one who saw the hook on Yahtzee's wall and thought it was a smudge on my monitor that wasn't going away?

Just me? Damn.

And Jim, you are every bit as worthwhile as Yahtzee is. Please do blame us for giving you attention!

Couldn't believe what I was hearing during the end of Jim's poem, I laughed so hard. I also have a hard time believing someone would try to calculate the terminal velocity of a Super Mario enemy, but I guess everyone has time to kill. Also I agree with Darth_Payn, I love it when the poems are written from the perspective of a game character.

I feel violated... good job as always then Jim! Yahtzee was great too.

I always liked Jim when he wrote something more dark and seriuos and not this whole sex obsession thing. i always found those poems of his lacking. ID rather you go back to being the perfect lifeform.
I do however wonder why did this video had no age gate when the one he was readong that porn magazine had.

Jim's been reading the furry porn hasn't he? It gets inside your mind like a pervy hairy drug that stuff.

I told myself that I only drew the furries as a crutch for not be able to draw faces very well, but now people throw money at me to keep making it. I'm like a more depraved Walter White.

Run Jim. WHILST YOU STILL CAN!

This show quickly became the best thing on The Escapist for me.

And why would I stop listening after Yahtzee? Jim's style is hilarious as well. Nothing is sacred to him. I love that.

You're still forgetting that gravity is going to decline over time, lowering the terminal velocity.

Well Jim, congratulations.

You've convinced me. You actually care more about disgust and shock value than even a token effort at entertainment OR art. Insulting your audience is such a fucking GREAT way to do anything at all. Excuse me while I go watch the Straw Beast again. -_- Personally I would've just murdered DK so you could have all the food. Yeah, he's a gorilla, but yuu know he's just gonna do it to you soon anyway, might as well go down swingin'.

Jim Sterling: Technically Pornography.

While i do not doubt that Yahtzee wins every week, Jim's is always worth listening to, you are just as funny, and your poems are well worded, Yahtzee just goes first, so you don't really stand a chance. even if you were funnier or more witty one week, first person to talk always has the full attention of the crowd.

I'm sure they'd let you out of the gig if you asked them, Jim.

But seriously, he's pretty obviously going for what I call the Checkerboard Nightmare Gambit. Start with too few viewers, take only actions designed to drive viewers away, and the result is more viewers.

(Then cancel the whole thing to work on a sci-fi webcomic, peak with "WEAR IT LIKE A HAAAAAAAT," settle back making the least effort you possibly can and still get a comic out of it, and finish it all off by launching an impeccably lovecrafted signature work nobody reads.)
