In this episode, Austin will reveal the SCIENCE behind Mario's flying ability, making an HISTORICAL DISCOVERY along the way!

    You do not need a wing you only need lift like a hot air balloon.

    Love that he calls the Mushroom kingdom Mario's home planet when CANON LORE has Mario and Luigi being PLUMBERS FROM FRICKING BROOKLYN. The Marios home planet IS Earth. They just warped to whatever planet the Mushroom Kingdom is on. ITS IN THE HISTORY.

    I still maintain that by far the WORST part of aerospace engineering is that whoever initially wrote the equations was sadistic enough to make it so that in every equation, there is an English letter with a corresponding Greek letter that looks exactly like it. Take pressure and air density, for example. In the numerator, you have the variable p for absolute pressure. In the denominator, you have the variable ρ (greek letter rho) for the air density. ( the actual equation is air density (ρ) = absolute pressure (p)/(specific gas constant (R)*absolute temperature(T) ) It's REALLY fun when stuff has to be handwritten. In short, I understand your pain, Austin.

    have you checked whether the water in mario is water and the properties of the liquid. other wise wouldn't the density of the liquid effect your calculations on how heavy mario is. but honestly I'm just some dumb 13 year old that does not understand much...

    Dear Austin.

    You forgot about the Coanda effect (about (air) pressure and inertia). Pair it with the Newtonian model, and you have a fairly good understanding of how lift/flight is generated. And yes, scientists DO AGREE on that.

    Austin, I absolutely love your energy. You’re enthusiasm is infectious. If it were anyone else, I’d skip over these vids entirely because I’m hopeless at maths. The only reason I enjoy these vids is because you are entertainment all on your own. I just sit back, relax, shut my eyes, and listen to you scream nonsense with epic symphonies blaring in the background. The chaos is soothing. And don’t let any of the sticks in the mud who complain about your voice concern you. They just need something to knickpick since they aren’t motivated or intelligent enough to make videos of their own. They’d probably be boring as dirt. Kudos to you, my friend. Go on screaming. It’s why I come back.

    Dear Austin,

    I will summarize the title of this video in a very meme-like manner.
    "How does a fat Italian plumber get off the ground with merely a hat with some tiny wings?"

    Question if the wing is on marios hat how is mario holding on to the hat without his hands?????
    Is it like, inside his hat? And how is he balancing in that pose when it should be him looking up with his wings dragging him in the air???
    (Since he is so PHAT)
