    1:53 do you also see Yuri beside Austin?!

      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.

                                                    14:29 Because the landing would still be pretty painful.

                                                            The reason Mario doesn't jump that high all the time, is because he's lazy and he also needs to conserve engergi for when he needs it. 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.

                                                                Then if we assume Mario's weight as 89kgs (through a google search, I have not double checked these values)
                                                                it should be more like

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