Useless Facts

Useless Fact 1: The Toppat Orbital Station from Henry Stickmin is 239 meters tall, its widest point is 229m (solar panels) and the actual station is 66m. I guess if you wanted to build it in Minecraft that would be helpful. I think I'll do that eventually.

How I calculated this:

First I found out how tall Henry Stickmin was. This was actually easier than I expected. There is an in-game scene where Henry stands in front of one of those height board thingies. I figured out exactly how tall by taking a screenshot and measuring pixels (fig 1). Next, I took another screenshot of a scene where Henry is about to climb into a drop pod. I measured the height of the drop pod based on Henry's height (fig 2). Now that that was done, I took a third screenshot of the whole orbital station where the drop pod is in view. Because everything was at an angle I had to calculate height via the Pythagorean Theorem, but no matter. Based on the height in pixels of the drop pod, I was now able to measure the height of the station (fig 3). Finally, I had gotten the stations height of 239 meters tall, or 1,344 bananas(that's equal to ~784 feet).

Useless Fact 2: If a cow spontaneously turned into a black hole, the radius of the event horizon would be approximately 0.0000000000000000000000013811 meters.

How I calculated this:

This one took a lot of work. First, I asked Chat-GPT. I copied and pasted the same prompt 3 times and got 3 different answers. The prompt was "If a cow spontaneously turned into a black hole, what would the radius of the event horizon be in decimal notation? Use an average weight of 930kg for the cow." Three different answers. I ended up looking online for a black hole event horizon calculator. I found one, put in the mass, and it read "0" as the size. In millimeters. So instead I copied one of the Chat-GPT answers, put it in, and found that all three of the answers were wrong. All three. I ended up just tweaking the values until I ended up at 0.0000000000000000000000013811 meters, or 0.00000000000000000000013811 centimeters, or 0.0000000000000000000013811 millimeters. Choose whichever.

Useless Fact 3: The Toppat Airship (yes, another Henry Stickmin one) is 208 meters long.

How I calculated this:

Using Henry Stickmins height of ~187 cm, I figured out the height of the Toppat escape pod. I then measured to pixels-to-centimeters on an image of both the Airship and escape pod, and found out the length of the ship.
