No unfortunately you get potatoes dying because the soil is too high in sulfur.
God damnit, I gotta call the Funyuns people and tell them to shut it down.

This is almost as embarrassing as the time I flew to Australia to warn Jocko that "Chocolate Thunder From Down Under" was a really bad name for a dessert. What a fucking debacle that was.

Uh... really? I thought you needed at least two (The body's mass and the orbiting body's distance). Please, educate me on this formula.
Orbital Speed = (Radius Of Body) x ( Surface Gravity / ( Radius Of Body + Orbital Altitude) ) ^1/2.

For a given body, the radius and surface gravity are constants (so is the mass of the body). Of course, different bodies will have different surface gravity and radii, but if you're restricting it to a single planet, the only actual input you would need is the orbital altitude. Agreed that this is a bit of a cheat on the definition of "constant."

Ah, ok, yeah, you cheater. You did say "given body" though, so I guess technically that's true and I interpreted it differently.

The Koch brother's father used to have oil refineries in the early USSR. Stalin killed some of his people turning him into a lolbert.

The Kochtopus is because of Stalin.

-Baby ducklings can jump like, half a foot in the air. I was helping weigh all 13 of them and I needed to keep my eye on the box as some of the rowdier ones were trying to escape.
