Ok, then. If you're cool with worshipping me, I'm cool with it, too.

I'll need you to build an alter to me in your closet. I'll require daily prayers and monetary donations at 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM (local time, of course) at the alter. In return, I might speak to you one day (probably when I come to pick up the money).

You don't know about the 593.5?

It's the terminal distance of a 13.4028 lb penguin that has been accelerated away from the earth at precisely a 33 1/3 degree angle with a velocity of 175 ft/second. Of course, the penguin is only airborn for 2.3185 seconds (due to gravity), so you also have to take into account the friction caused by 12.3825 feet of snow. The coefficient of friction for snow with a weight of 3 lb/sq.ft. (standard in the Antarctic) is 1.4294, so this will deccelerate the penguin to a slow and steady stop at a maximum distance of 593.5 feet.

The variable is the angle, of course. If you are over or under the perfect 33 1/3rd angle, the penguin will travel a shorter distance.

But everyone knew this already, right?

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

JT i calculated that your calculations are off a bit, the penguin is airborn for 2.3175 second so that ruins your whole theory, o well nice try though
