Mario, DON'T JUMP! Calculating the Danger of the Yoshi Sacrifice! | The SCIENCE of... Mario

SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories! ►
We all know Mario is a jerk, especially to his "friends". Like poor Yoshi, who is forced to give him a ride only to be shoved down into the pits in favor of helping Mario survive. Oh, you don't remember that part? Well today Austin is here to explain how sacrificing Yoshi to help you jump higher is the WORST thing you could do to this lovable green dinosaur.

    Wait, Yoshi weighs less than Mario? Poor thing. Could you imagine giving a piggyback ride to someone who weighs more than you?

    The media was right. These mario games are way to violent for children. Riding a dinosaur is very irresponsible and a bad example

    Yoshi: **saves mario in so many ways including saving him when he was a baby** I'm such a good companion!! Mario loves me!! Mario: **nervously sweats** yep!! Me: what about all those times he used you as a sacrifice to make jumps and get coins- Yoshi: **death glares at mario** Mario: .... Well I'm dead......

    Dear Austin (and everyone else reading this), 7:12 that's not true, because those action and reaction forces aren't acting on the same object so then don't cancel out, one of them is acting on the floor and the other is acting on the mushroom. And ACTION AND REACTION FORCES NEVER CANCEL OUT because think about it, if they do they we won't be able to move anything. They reason HOWEVER that the mushroom is still and is at a 0 netforce, is not actually that that force exerted on the ground is canceling the force of the muchroom on the ground, but that that force cancels the force of gravity that is acting on the mushroom (and the REACTION of that force of gravity on the mushroom is canceled by the first force he was talking about) thus creating a 0 net force and.... Bam. And I'm assuming I'm putting this comment waaaayy too late cuz I'm doing this in 2019 (almost 2020) so.. Just letting u people who also haven't watched this video yet until now like me know the truth about that one little miss-information he said there. 😂 Sincerely yours, Me

    I still think that Yoshi's lighter because he's actually more buoyant something something air Space versus and him like helium also he could be spring like which makes him more durable and resilient plus why can Yoshi do the Kiki feet equals higher jump?

    When you jump off of Yoshi tho, he levitates up just a tiny bit negating a good portion of the forces on him.

    Of course, the typical reason it's called the Yoshi Sacrifice is because you're doing it over lava or a bottomless pit where *both* would die if you didn't do something... turns out doing it over ground would be just as fatal to Yoshi if the games modeled physics and physiology realistically. Good to know!
