  • Trivia

    • Factual error: Joel states that things fall at a speed of "32 feet per second squared." However, this is actually the rate at which gravity causes things to accelerate. Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity; speed is the absolute value of velocity. Since he memorized the number and is apparently very familiar with physics, it's unlikely Joel would be unaware of the difference.
