    Bah! Too many of todays scientists are just trying to grandstand like the politicians and movie stars. They want their 15 minutes of fame.
    Now they don't even know if butter is better than margerine or if margerine is better or if butter is margerine or if its really all just soft cheeze in disguise.
    Lights slowing down huh? Few years from now, a slow train will pass it up, I suppose.

    Well, I was thinking my lightbulbs were filling the room with light just a little bit slower lately than they used to. At least now I know it's not just me.

    BTW, what will we do when the light from our headlights can't keep up with our cars when we are going down the highwayo_O

    actualy i belive speed of light is inposiable for the hueman body to survive because of the gravity in space=)

    same effect as g force to much will kill you.

    now befor you all jump not so smart blaze let me ask you this.

    how can a rocket ship propel thru space if there is no gravity?

    answer there is gravity imited from plants stars and qu zars ect

    is the spped of light infinit no it eventualy ends take for example a burnt out sar eventualy the star will fade alway in thosands of years or so but there is and end.

    and what about a black hole consider this speed of light or light hits a black hole it gone there for it ends positive and negitive all things have an end.

    you have to look threw the eys of a god i know it sound stupit but consider this.

    the human race is how many years old

    compare that to how old the earth is

    now compare that to how old this solar system is

    and finaly compare that to how old the unvirse is where just a drop of time in the bucket.

    we are like a fly that lives foe 1 day then dies to the fly it felt to it that it lived a full life to huemans its just 1 day and thats how it all works you exsist then you dont.

    thats true with everything.

    if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around does it make a sound.

    if the human race no longher exsist will ligfht speed still exsist no it wont mater no one is there to witness it lol

    there for there is an end to everything wow this whacky tobacky is great lol hugs love you by by=)

    It has already been demonstrated that light particles can be slowed and even stopped, and that light waves can be accelerated to over thirty-three times the so-called speed of light. These experiments were reported in New Scientist well over a year ago.

    Thanks Checkout, I must have missed that....
    O well, the world of quantum-physica is a "strange" world; hum, it is our world ;)

    ***if a tree falls in the forest.....etc, etc,***


    according to the law of cause and affect.....as studied by a group of researchers a few years back.....if a leaf falls in a forest the affects will be "felt" tens of thousands of miles away. a "rippling affect"

    hey..don't ask me...I would not even be here if I knew how to turn this darn computer off.....!!!!

    Let's not go overboard on this one. Yes, everything affects everything else, but a butterfly farting in the Serengetti isn't going to make Doubleclick disappear, any more than gravity affects Newton's Third Law (whatever Blaze may think to the contrary - you could spend the next ten millennia in space and the nearest star - apart from the Sun - wouldn't pull you a centimetre towards it. You need a course in basic physics, Blaze; gravity is a weak force, and the electromagnetic forces today aren't the same as they were when the Universe started. we'd have solved the GUT by now otherwise.)

    Go into any forest and you'll find trees that fell when nobody was there to hear them. Stuff and nonsense, that's all. Bah humbug.

    I thought that was how DoubleClick was born. Pete
