Cop math. They were probably doing 120 kph.

Hey Bandit, this is the Snowman.  We ain't got not time to waste, puttin the hammer down and reaching for Top Gun gear if we're going to make Toronto by daybreak.

Copy that good buddy, by the time they hear us, we'll be gone.  We'll see if those mounty speeder readers can track mach 1.

Well, it happened up in Canada, which is nearer to the North Pole than here, Santa lives at the North Pole, Santa breaks all kinds of physics rules while delivering presents, therefore it isn't all 'that' implausible that a tractor trailer could putter along at mach 1...

Because noise attenuation barrier just sounds snotty.

/nice find, Subby
 
2018-09-20 01:32:36 AM  
Breaking the sound barrier means the truck was going faster than Mach 1. It could have been Mach 2 or faster. We may never know.

The world's fastest Peterbilt only does about Mach 0.5 in the quarter mile. However, if you applied enough thrust, anything is possible.

The SR-71 still holds the world record for the coolest airplane ever built.

We've been building sound barriers around highways, resulting in interesting burn patterns they might reduce average sound levels, but tge scorch marks are more real.

bingethinker: Cop math. They were probably doing 120 kph.


Not to mention the 800 million pounds of bluegrass turf that they confiscated just in case until they check it out. Can't be too careful with cop math.

I don't think the U-2 is ugly, but it's said to be one of the (if not the) most difficult planes to fly.

It also outlived the SR-71 which was intended to replace it.

Unimpressed.

OK Subby, calm down! calm down! I get the joke. He broke the "sound barrier".

That is funny. I laughed very loudly, in fact you might say I laughed out loud.

And its in my local newspaper. Why didn't I see it first? Well, to tell the truth I stopped buying a lot of papers and magazines because I get tonnes of news on the Internet for free or nearly free. Also, I was producing an enormous amount of paper waste that needed to be recycled so I just glance at the online papers and headlines in the stores once in a while.

Broke the sound barrier.

Is that what they call those things. I would call them noise damping walls or something.

Good morning Speed Racers!

Were any of you fans of Ze Frank during that year he had a video log to win a bet? That was a heck of a lot of fun.

Wow! 18 times the speed of light, Warp 18. Even Captain Kirk can beat that speed!

I kennay maintain this insane speed, keptain! She's shaking to pieces! We must reduce speed to warp five immediately!

Captain Kirk can NOT break that speed. It was a Typo.

So what really happened there was they didn't reduce to warp 5 in time?

Pfft - The Columbia was doing a paltry warp 2.6 or 2.3 depending if the captain was Kirk or Picard...
