    In any event, this little factoid (hey – I used it right!)

    THIS!! Far too many people seem to be under the impression that a factoid is a small fact...

    -oid ≠ small! I kind of wish it was, though. Just think of the possibilities, dwarves would be androids! :D

    It's actually SQRT(k.m/S) where k is a factor of g, air density, Cd, etc.

    Wouldn't it be cool if we could get an old passenger liner, The QE2, or sum such Icon into space. It could orbit the moon, as an amateur astronomers attraction.

    Traditionally it is a teapot in orbit around Mars...

    You, sir, are, in my correct opinion, a charlatan. I challenge you to a plummet.
    As long as I can have a parachute of which has an area not less than the square of my mass (in metres per kilogram) and yours is no more than the square root of your own, renowned, mass.

    Terrorism is the greatest threat facing the democratic world.

    We've been invited to their country, and it's tor their own good.

    Gangs are a growing threat to society.

    P is the most dangerous thing you could get into.

  • Rex Widerstrom,

    TroyHoward suggests:

    During the election all candidates have to be dropped down a stairwell to determine density.

    I'm afraid it'd be almost impossible to allow for the differences in mass.

    For instance those merely full of hot air would fall at a slower rate than those full of s**t. Then there's the remainder - those full of their own self-importance.

    Since the outward appearance is the same regardless of the stuffing, the only way we could get accurate results was via autopsy.
