...collide in a horrific and fiery wreck? Please say this is the rest of the question because what good are passenger trains unless they can collide with each other resulting in catastrophic pile ups.

You forgot to include the part about corpses.

...flaming corpses weighing on an average of 320lbs were hurled an average of 437 feet from the fiery conflagration of twisted and flaming wreckage. How much force did it take to launch these (flaming) morbidly obese Americans through the sky like fireworks?

That´s an old trick question. Everbody knows that a flaming body looses mass constantly. We need to know how much they are on fire.

Because drag and weight loss

You're right! (hang on, I'll have the exact calculations here momentarily)

Okay, got it!....They're on fire...a LOT.

This should satisfy the values for the rest of the equation.

We're going to the Iquitos area. Not in the city for most of the trip, mostly jungle/river. We've hired a couple of reputable boat / jungle guides who's job it is to interpret, guide & generally keep us safe and were planning on tipping them - assuming they do their job well.

But, while we're in the city (3 different nights in between excursions) we'll likely need to tip others (porters, etc.).

Is someone picking you up at the airport? If not, I strongly recommend you arrange something in advance. The airport is a mob scene upon arrival. It's not advisable to use the taxi's at airport curbside.

Oh, and do not underestimate the traffic in Lima. It routinely takes me 45-60 minutes just to travel 3-4 miles (seriously) in the city. And do NOT, under ANY circumstances, attempt to drive yourself in Lima! When even the taxi cab drivers fold in their side mirrors this should tell you why! Get your camera out when you have to make a left turn on a busy road. It's definitely a photo worthy event.

Haha, ok. We aren't going to be spending time in Lima though - other than a 6 hour layover in the middle of the night
. When I said "city", I meant Iquitos.
