I know you're trying to be helpful, but writing things like "The longer the focal length of the lens is, the less perspective distortion you’ll generally have..." is bound to cause confusion.

Perspective has nothing to do with focal length.  The reason wide angle lenses show more perspective distortion than longer lenses is that you're standing closer to the subject.  That's it.  Crop a 20mm shot 10x and compare wit the same image shot FROM THE SAME PLACE with a 200mm.  Perspective is identical.
Shooting a portrait? Don't forget about Perspective Distortion.

The irony of a 911 survivor talking about "what the Lord did for me" and "the grace of God" is almost too much to handle.

It's a little known fact that Brian Williams actually killed UBL.

Wow, that was poor.  No flaps, no spoilers, no flare, WAAAAAY too fast.

You obviously didn't read the comments I included with the video :-(   A year later I have learned about Flaps, Spoilers etc :-)

+Tim Horan No.  This video was produced in early 1967, as a promo for the 'Penny Lane'/Strawberry Fields Forever' double A-side.  Brian Epstein was very much alive when this was made (d. August 1967).

1.  Focal length does not "compress" or "stretch" anything.  Where you stand - relative to the subject and the background - is the only thing that matters.

2. A crop sensor body does not turn a 200mm lens into a 300mm lens, and crop sensor bodies do not "stretch" faces out less.  The reason you might think this is true is that you're generally standing farther away with a crop body than a FF body (see point 1).

So repeat after me: focal length does not affect perspective.  At all.  Ever.

+EL3 Imagery Again, see http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=672913 for examples that CLEARLY demonstrate the phenomenon. Focal length has nothing AT ALL to do with perspective distortion.
