Most of the threads on here aren't exactly life changing, but isn't that the point? As long as it all stays within the bounds of civility.

If you're driving along at the speed of light and you turn your headlights on, does anything happen?

in the time it takes you to turn your lights on, whilst at light speed, you've gone a long bloody way and won the clever dick nobel prize, that's what happens.

intwresting. No, if by somehow you're driving at C the beam won't project. At these speeds velocity isn't relative, hence the whole concept being called relativity.

It's like NOS.

Interestingly, since this thread has been running there have been no "NOS, taken off the bike after one ride" type ads in he For Sale sections.

You would have to turn them on before you reached the speed of light, because once you reached it time would stop (for you).
