jigger: 1.5 terabits per second, with only the laws of physics slowing it down.Um, isn't that the only reason anything slows down?
GoldSpider: Don't Mad Libs belong in the Politics tab?

Kibbler: When implemented, Comcast will offer a service to DOUBLE your current bandwidth...to an amazing 45 MBS...for a mere additional $89 a month! Call now!Also Hollywood will go completely insane trying to prevent it, on the assumption that there will never again be any money to be made in digital content, even as they rake in record profits.
Lokasenna: Call me pedantic, but I'm pretty sure you can't get light to move at anything other than the speed of itself.
Corvus: Cybernetic: Woo hoo! My 100th greenlight! And it only took me seven years and 25 days!!/I'm gonna buy myself a drink.//No, I don't have a life.Good work. I only have 60 and I have been here for 10 years. But I don't submit them that much either.
Cybernetic: 448 redlights in the last 720 days. So probably at least double that (maybe even triple) over the whole seven years.I used to go months in between greens. Last year I finally found some headline-writing mojo and have been getting several each month. This month has probably been my best ever: 13 so far.
Sim Tree: Lokasenna: Call me pedantic, but I'm pretty sure you can't get light to move at anything other than the speed of itself.Sort of. The speed of light in a medium is proportional to the desnsity of the medium. Think if it as a pinball machine; while the light is moving forwards, it moves at the speed of light, but it keeps bumping into atoms and things, each time moving in a slightly different direction, so by the time it does go by the flippers, it does so much later than it would have otherwise. And the more bumpers you stuff in the space, the longer it takes to make it past the pinwheely bits and through the system./ SCIENCE¡
