Cut short the Physics Problems

I'm in level 2 in Physics. I think the problems unnecessarily have some 'stories' attached with them. Like say the "Indiana Jones" problem or the "soccer" problem or the "cranberry" problem. I'm not denying the fact that they are funny and make the problems realistic but sometimes the problem is lost in the potboiler.

So, I'd like to request Challenge Master, David to cut short these problems and stop beating about the bush.(at least for some problems)

Peace.

AD.

I agree that when you are eager to do a problem the story around it seems annoying. But i feel that it gives a more realistic feel to it and makes physics a more "practical" subject than an "abstract" subject.
