comment What are the chances that a deadly asteroid will hit Earth in the next decade?
@MooingDuck look at the math, it doesn't have anything to do with people who HAVE BEEN killed, but rather the chances as of now. Slight nuanced difference. Keep in mind that it's based on the chances of a large asteroid impacting (which would kill A LOT of people).

comment What causes an aircraft to roll when rudder is applied
The lowest performance aircraft that I ever flew was a learner, so I ,may have some bias in my flight experience, however. The roll on straight wing and other such aircraft has a lot to do with the center of moment of the yaw being above the center of gravity. I'll draw a diagram am edit the answer when I get home from my trip.

comment What causes an aircraft to roll when rudder is applied
@MikeDunlavey You are partially correct, don't get me wrong on that regard, however it's more than just the effects from dihedral. The fact that the rudder is above the plane of the center of gravity in the airplane also plays into the effect of the roll you get. In attempting to isolate just one factor in a dynamic and complex situation like an airplane flying, you get A LOT of other considerations to deal with.

comment What causes an aircraft to roll when rudder is applied
@ColinK true, but the dihedral (or anehedral) effects are a much smaller part of the equation (unless extreme) than the sweep. And if you look at figure two in the wiki link, the key words are "non-zero sideslips" meaning that theoretically if you induce yaw with zero bank at the same time, you don't get that rolling effect induced because of the dihedral (albeit nearly impossible to do in the real world).
