February's Forgotten

3. If you're underwater, say, 200 feet, and you let loose some bubbles, will those bubbles move faster, or slower than bubbles released from, say, 50 feet?

J. How far are you from the nearest gallon of milk available for purchase?

Eggs: What is the most physical labor you would perform for the most basic of meals?

: Did Monster got to Florida just to avoid the February questionnaire?

J: It's 5 blocks to the Wawa, the most Philadelphia of convenience stores.

3. They'll start at the same speed, but have longer to accelerate under greater force, up to the underwater-equivalent of terminal velocity, whatever that is.

J. I assume our corner gas station sells milk, but I don't know for certain. I'd go to the grocery store (2 miles) to make sure I didn't waste time.

Eggs: If I were food secure in general, I can (and have) skipped a meal simply to avoid the physical labor of walking to the kitchen. If I were hungry, sure, I'd do whatever was necessary.

3: I have no idea. That's a very good question. The internets don't seem to know for sure either.

J: 566 feet, as the crow flies. 1,078 feet as the glatt walks (I live behind the grocery store and have to walk around the building to the front door.)

Eggs: as Clodfobble astutely points out, it depends on how hungry I am.

I would enjoy being in the Keys right now. Fond memories of Munson Island. MUNSON!

3. I'd guess they keep accelerating?
J. + or - 6 miles unless you buy fresh from a farm.
Eggs. I feed the chickens and they feed me. Seems fair.
Monster was feeling lazy so she packed up and went to Florida.

I would think faster, because the motive force (the pressure differential) is greater.

ETA: Wait, that's not right. The pressure would be different, but the differential would remain the same, as both fluids are being acted on at the same time.

ETA ETA: Wait, it IS right, because water doesn't compress and air does. Yes, the bubble should move faster the deeper you are.
