you're in spaceship traveling at the speed of light. It gets dark, so you turn your headlights on,......Will they make any difference?

Bill as far as I remember my quantum physics class, it would depend on where the viewer was standing. If the viewer was in the car the light beams would be visible. If the viewer was standing outside the car, the lit would not be.

Would it make any difference if you were wearing a hoodie?

You are travelling in a spaceship at the speed of light. As darkness falls you turn on your headlights.......Will they make any difference? SLF I thought it would be the reverse if anything at all.

Light travels at c in every non-intertial reference frame, so yes, the lights would be on like normal.

Bullshit!

Sorry. Just can't overcome my natural instinct to argue with SLF.

I think we should change Johnny Manziel's nickname from Johnny Football to Johnny Highball. Am I right? Am I right? High five?

Any kitchen utensil that is "hand wash only" might as well say "throw away after first use" to me.

Asking for directions and you get "You can't get there from here." Really? Cuz unless I'm looking for the Apollo 11 landing spot there's probably a way to get there.

Why should I follow the instructions given by AT&T support to call a number for help then stand there silent for 3-4 minutes until a real person answers the phone?

Trick Question! - Darkness could not fall upon you when you are travelling at the speed of light. Darkness would be the absence of direct light from a celestial source. If you are going 670,616,629 mph and are just "fading" into darkness, you are on an unbelievably huge planet/moon (that's no moon, it's a space station!)

Plus it also depends on if you used the Mother's headlight cleaning kit to remove oxidation from the plastic head lamp covers.

The calls that ring my phone and then ask me to hold while waiting for someone to connect never get my attention. "Please hold" is always followed by me clicking off the call.

After reading the train wreck that is going on in the M forum in regards to moderation, all I can say is thanks for running this place the way you do Deb.

Ha!

I read a few things and then use the "mark this forum read" button liberally.

BTW, The forum admin thread over there is is pure gold right now.

edit: the Ohio thread is good for a laugh, too.
