I'm an engineer, but I have to say I haven't really studied deeply in depth on the full physics of a board other than the basics. In theory I would think if you use a longer board thinking it will have more pop is tough to say. The longer it is the more effort I would think will be required to flex and pop it. It may pop more, but you're gonna have to put more effort in it with a longer board to transfer your weight to ollie the sucker. I'd have to say not getting into depth on all equations and what not, just thinking about it, I think there is a median line of being too short or too long. Not talking alpine long but if it's a bit longer, you may lose some pop, and too little, you will have pop but not a whole lot. I think there is a fine line for a giving board length and boarder weight and ability that mixes to create for that person, the ultimate pop they could get. Damn.. now I want popcorn.
Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.
Screw being normal
