    I think there's a math problem here If you know the length of the bird, you also know how many bird's length it moves in any given amount of time. That bird is obviously not moving hundreds of miles per hour across the screen. You'd instead have to work from the slingshot towards the pigs to figure exactly how fragile the pigs are.

    But what if the Red angry bird (ostrich) flaps its wings (still unable to fly) while being launched from the slingshot. I mean even if its wings flapping doesn't make the bird fly, maybe it will be enough to an extent so that maybe the slingshot needs less force to launch the bird, because the bird just by flapping can lift itself to same degree. I don't know if this could help, but I was always amazed how high can chickens lift themselves (not fly) when they are trying to escape. I haven't researched this, I am just giving a humble "what if". Or at least I'll make someone laugh at my reasoning.

    Heres my theory: the reason why thier "deadly" is because- remember the meteors and the falling towers? they can possibly damage them because of how fast the birds are. so the pigs are somehow having low on defense. so if the angry birds are shot. you can see thier afraid. means they have weak defense or severely damaged while theres no scratches or bruises.

    I used to raise pigs for showing at the county fair. They are really durable. I think the heaviest one we ever had was about 1000 pounds. He was a pet. I don't recommend letting a pig that large step on your toes. The show pigs were about in the high 100's when it comes to size.

    This is all moot because as cutscenes show the birds don't actually kill the pigs just bruises and cuts that can be bandaged.

    This particular bit, I had kept a straight face the entire video... but the below quote absolutely killed me off We finally.. FINALLY... have all the information we need in order to figure out how fast we need to launch a 179 kg ostrich at a pig in order to snap it in half, or honestly probably pulverise spectacularly...

    Dear Austin. Its me, a loyal theory inspector and i have something to say. YOU ARE WRONG!! to calculate the tension required to make a piggy go boom just see the pig fall from a lil height (accelerating for 0.2 secs yes i calculated) which means 10m/s^2 * 0.2 * 180kg mass which is just 360 N of force required. do your homework freind. anyways i like ur theorys u just over looked this. NOW U CAN MAKE A THEORY ON HOW WEAK PIGGIES ARE THAT THEY GO BOOM JUST BY FALLING A METRE DOWN SO ITS NOT ALL BAD
