bamph: Probably a reference to the shuttle Columbia exploding.  One of the broadcast stations had a ticker on that said it reentered the atmosphere going 18 times the speed of light.


Sure, but that had rockets. This is just a rock!

Why do you think it's only going 7 times the speed of light?!

Given the speed of light I infer from this headline, I assume that Sutter's Mill Meteorite hit the atmosphere of Discworld, where the strong magical field slows light down to a slow, elegant crawl just above the speed of sound.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy: nmemkha: Meh. Bad news travels much faster.

This.

Speed is relative. Some chunk of rock coming into the solar system from elsewhere could be traveling at a significant percentage of light-speed, We really really need a working program to detect and blow these farkers into dust before they slam into a city somewhere. Yes, tremendous cost. But also unacceptable potential cost should we not have it. And the massive construction effort, both on the ground and in orbit, would help the economy.


On it!

Dr.Mxyzptlk.: Wow that's fast !

I am pretty quick myself .

At night when I shut the wall switch off . I am in bed before the the light goes out.

I have to duck going around second base when I hit a line drive.

I have had premature ejaculations months in advance.


I believe one of those.

Stone Meadow: Well played, Subby, only it's almost not fair to rouse some Farkers before they've ingested their morning ration of caffeine.


Thank you kindly, sir

That's the fastest a rock could go without the aid of dilithium crystals to control the matter-antimatter reactor. Silly.
