    also i feel like if mario was falling and hit the ground at terminal velocity he would probably break a bone or two in his legs

      I love Yoshi so when I have to use him, I try never to use the Yoshi sacrifice

                    Ok, yes, but you’re only given the OPTION of jumping off Yoshi. You don’t HAVE to do it to beat the game, and Mario Maker is just a non-canon spin-off. If you do it, YOU are the one making Mario the most evil Nintendo character.

                            So mejuring yoshis new estimated weight and including the fact that youshi has some control of flight (the youshi flutter) this should be a bit more eeven.

                          Well mario jumps higher on yoshi than he does on the ground right? So maybe yoshi is helping mario jump up by giving him a small toss.

                            Hold up. Is 36.4 m/s/s really the acceleration due to gravity? On earth it’s-9.8m/s/s. It sounds like you’re using the american ft/s/s. Which I think is like -34 ft/s/s. I’m bot sure what it is in mario, so I was just wondering.

Plus if you are going to be jumping around all day long its probably a good idea to not use all his energy every time he jumps.

Is it teamwork? Either Yoshi is able to survive the landing and knows it, or he is way too helpful... Something is up with Yoshi.

Also 5:17 is bothering me like nails on a chalkboard or nails on my eyeballs [ms^(-2) insteand of ms^2] but I am powerless to edit your video. So many calculation errors and mistakes come from sloppy use or misrepresentation of units my week is ruined
