    What about trying God? He created the ruddy thing didn't he?

    You mean God can travel at the speed of 386,000 miles per second (whatever) - but then why would he need to travel if he is already everywhere? Including in the hole of Kaitlin's tooth

    Oh..i seen a thing on tv about light... the one wif the guy with the train. But then I seen another thing that said light has mass..so i dont think that " sty]Given that the speed of light is always constant relative to the observer,
    " is ture .... probably measurement guys are failing here cusae its hard to measure

    He isn't everywhere. I have an agreement with God. I stay out of churches, he stays out of pubs. Works well.

    Reminds me of what someone asked Charles Darwin's brother:

    'Are you a freethinker?'

    'I'd rather consider myself a freedrinker!'

    Then, of course, there's W.C. Fields: "Everyone should believe in something. I believe I'll have another drink."

    Heaps more here.

    I thought about this last night and even turn the light on to write stuff down..

    ..how can light be always going at the same?
    - Is that like saying rain stops being rain when it turns into a puddle
    - You can only see light when its about to start.. like at the sun or like if you heat up a bit of wire...... or when it crashes into sumtn, so are u saying its only light when we cant see it and when it crashes into sumtn and we can see it that is just illumated thing not light. What about when light fall into one of them black holes and get squished and squashed up against the other stuff in there... is it stopped then???
    - Maybe light is the liquid of the skys. Cause with water vapour its stays water vapour untill it comes in contact with sumtn like cold dirt in the sky, or a mirror ..then it becomes a droplet - maybe light when it crashes into sumtn gets combinded with that thing and gets inside it like a sponge soaking up water... but becasue it is very very small we cant tell the difference.
    - Oh and water vapour going up to the sky.. would go up at the constant for water vapour.. if you just look at one saucepan

    That's relativity for you. Always at the same speed relative to the observer. So if you and I are moving relative to each other and are watching the same light source, then we both measure the light moving at an identical speed.

    Then again, there are those that are now forming theories that the speed of light is not constant. I suppose it remains to be seen whether they are right, or whether Einstein et al had it right in the first place.

    Couldn't God make light do doughnuts and wheelies - cast shadows and no shadows under Kaitlin's armpit, well he did stop the sun from going down while the Israelites won that war didn't He?

    And Kaitlin, you get corn problems in your teeth by having your foot in your mouth too often. You can also have jam without having bread.
