    Can Bullet Bill KILL?!? ►
    I've done PLENTY of dark theories on the Mario franchise, from Super Mario being a sociopath to Princess Peach being the dead mother of Rosalina and beyond. But today, I've uncovered the most dangerous game in the Mario canon -- Mario Kart! Mario Kart 8! Well, specifically Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I did the math, and the devastation those fun little Mario Karts deliver is something to truly fear. So hop in and buckle your seatbelts, because this is going to be one crazy Mario Kart adventure!

    My bad: 5'11'' actually equals 180 cm...but NO FEAR! I did all the speed calculations in Standard first, then converted each result back to metric, so although I misspoke in that one moment about the height conversion, the rest of the stats should all be right!
    Like I said, I'm stupid imperialist scum with a dumb measurement system :)

    I'm pretty sure MatPats mind would be blown if he went to Germany and noticed that driving 128km/h is absolutely normal, because we have no speed restrictions on highways. We can go as fast as we want and there are some people going around 200km/h or higher.

    Lol, so the people in that one game were 11-12 ft tall. Secondly, this isn't a theory if it's predicated off of real world physics. But, this does explain the death tolls on our roads. People play Mario kart too much.

    I do believe that the unlockable suv is more or less styled to look like a go-kart rather than a full real car.... not sure about go-karts, but like motorcycles seatbelts would be a bad thing to have with that.... you don't have seatbelts on motorcycles for a good reason, wouldn't the Mario go-karts have the same standards?.... also, didn't see seatbelts in the irl kart racing there.... :/

    Your calculations for the g force is wrong. Looking up the average mass of a gokart, google says it’s about 75kg, 100mph is about 44.7 m/s. Using the formula for impulse, Ft=mv-mv0, assuming that a split second is 0.5s we get a force of about 6900N. Dividing by the acceleration due to gravity of 9.8 we get about 702gs. I mean it’s still gonna kill you but you just had the wrong numbers
