Postby StlSluggers » Wed Oct 19, 2005 3:59 pm

1. Sleep 'til noon. Still get to work by 8:00am!

2. Doppler shift makes red traffic lights look green.

3. Breaking laws of physics only a misdemeanor in most states.

4. Never in car long enough to hear an entire rap song.

5. Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking keep bugging you to carpool.

6. No one can see you pick your nose while you drive.

7. Lunch breaks in Paris, circa 1792.

8. LA to Vegas in 2 nanoseconds.

9. You can stop worrying about being sucked into a black hole driving home from work.

10. You'll be so thin while driving it you can even wear horizontal stripes.

11. That deer in your headlights is actually behind you.

12. Kid from Mentos commercial almost guaranteed to lose a limb if he tries to duck through back seat.

13. Traffic enforcement limited to cops with PhD's in Quantum Physics.

14. Bugs never see you comin'.

15. You can get to the good hookers before Charlie Sheen.

16. Can make a fortune delivering pizza with the slogan "It's there before you order or it's free!"

17. Car makes it from Hollywood to London fast enough to not arouse suspicions of Elizabeth Hurley.

18. License plate: "Me=mc2"

19. Cigarette butts don't land in the backseat -- they land in last week!

By far, #18 is my favorite.

Hence the faster-than-light ability of the car.

Right but who's to say that blackholes can't pull in things faster then light as well.

I think its foolish to assume that you are safe from blackholes while driving from work geez

OH MAN!

Faster than light?

Now that's crazy.

So, if you're in the faster-than-the-speed-of-light car, and you stick your hand out the window, will it turn into a fossil?

No but the world around you would be going back in time so eventually you'd be in a holographic dinosaur world

So i'm thinking I should avoid putting anything out the window then.

Wait a second, if I'm in this car and the world around me is going back in time and I'm in a holographic dinosaur world... what if I hit one of those giant dragonflies and kill it? Will it change the course of history? Will it rain donuts instead of water?

Well I guess so but I don't know that matter travels at the speed of light so basically you'd need some technology to conver the lost light particles that you are catching up to into visable light... You'd probalby need some rabbit ear antennas or something like that at least.
