I'm watching The Adventures of Superman. This one

Supermanwithblindgirl.jpg.9ce25798000f6b2dd8f1410b9055c1c9.jpg


Little girl won a contest and Supes flies her around the world.

 

As they about to leave the Planet building, he says, "We'll be back in a couple of hours".

 

Circumference of the earth is just under 25,000 miles. So if they're going to do that in 2 hours, they're going to be flying 12,500 mph.

 

Talk about your windburn.

I'm like the girl in that Sheldon Cooper clip. How many were there?

 

In about 3 minutes into this clip

 

Supes is standing there by the car while the girl is doing mechanical things. Because Clark is a wimp. And while she is figuring out what the problem is with the car he says that he's going to go see where the kid is.

 

The kid has fallen down in the wheat field and hit his head on a rock and he's lying unconscious, and the reaper is coming.

 

But I don't recall seeing this one, and while Supes looked like Chris Reeve, the girl did not look like Lois. And who was the little kid?

Superman III (1983)

The girl is Lana Lang (Annette O'toole)

The kid (Ricky) is Paul Kaethler - IMDb

The circumference of the earth is 25,000 miles but if one does not fly a maximum circle around the planet it will be a lot less, but still a lot of miles.

Besides -- isn't the Fortress of Solitude somewhere in the Arctic?

 

Superman probably got a few tips from Santa Claus on negating the effects of atmospheric friction during hyper-sonic flight.

While they do not fly around the equator, they fly over London, because they see Big Ben. They fly over Paris because they see the Eiffel Tower. They fly over Germany because they danced together over the beautiful Blue Danube. They fly over Arabia. Somebody saw them flying over the Mediterranean, and called it back in to the Planet. They fly over the Himalayas, where he comments that they're the tallest mountains in the world. So if they're flying above them she should have no oxygen to breathe. They fly over the Golden Gate bridge. So while they didn't do the 24,000 miles around the equator, they also didn't just fly around the North Pole.

In the comic books he would wrap whoever he was carrying - usually Lois or Jimmy - in his cape. His cape, as the rest of his costume, is made from the Kryptonian blanket he was wrapped in as a baby, and therefore it is impervious to any damage, and apparently prevents windburn and freezing from flying very high.

 

But he didn't wrap up the little girl. :P

 

I forgot, they also flew down the center of the Grand Canyon.

I think the problem here is you're trying to make sense of a TV show!:P

This sounds exactly like a conversation I had many years ago with a couple buddies over a beer and a bong. Too funny.

Hollyweird strikes again. OTOH, the sci-fi show I watched on TV as a kid...Tom Corbett, Space Cadet...had rockets landing by backing down on their flaming exhausts. Supposed to be in the year 2350, a world beyond tomorrow.  Of course, we knew that was science fiction. Never happen, right? I think SpaceX has done it 279 times last count! B)

Water!??! That stuff rusts pipes. Plus, fish poop in it, along with other things.

“Supes”? WTH is a supes?

 

 

They can’t count in the 50’s and Syllable Deficit Disorder is rampant in the 21st Century. :lol:
 

SDD is not a thing. It’s made up, like Superman.

You have never heard Superman referred to as Supes? It's a nickname, like calling Spider-Man "Spidey", or Batman "Batbreath".

No, I don’t think I have.
