So, how many rhinos does a tram weigh?

Aussies answer ungulate poser

In case you were ever wondering, like you do, just what is the weight of a tram in rhinos, our friends Down Under have the answer:

What's not clear, however, is what speed the 30 rhinos are travelling at as a percentage of the maximum velocity of a sheep in a vacuum. This information is vital if we are to calculate just how many Norrises* your body will be subjected to when you absent-mindedly wander in front of the stampeding herd. We expect clarification from Yarra Trams in due course. ®

*One Norris = 100 newtons, for the uninitiated.

Thanks to Paulius Stepanas for the weighty tip-off.
