  • Floris is Faster Than Lightning

    I reported a post and by the time I went back to the forum I reported it in Floris had already taken care of it. Took him all of 10 seconds.

      Well, if I remember correctly, the speed of lightning is debateable, but ranges between 80,000 and 190,000 miles per second. Floris must be uber fast lol Go Floris!

        According to a quick search on Google the speed of light is 299,792,458 m/s.

        That made me want to play around a bit more

        So I checked the circumference of the earth and it's approx 24900 miles.

        Therefore, light can travel around the earth approx. 12000 times a second.

        Man that's fast!

          Not quite. "m/s" = meters per second

          the speed of light (186,000 miles every second). Light can go around the Earth 7 and 1/2 times in one second. It takes light 1 and 1/2 seconds to go from the Earth to the moon 240,000 miles. It takes 8 minutes for the light of the Sun to reach us. It takes 5 light-hours (meaning the distance light travels in 5 hours) for light to get out to Pluto from the Earth

            To continue this nerdfest, light's speed can vary by its medium. The most common speed given is in a vaccum.

              Since we want to be nerdy geeks, this is how you spell vacuum.

                  The word "bookkeeper" is the one of the few words with three double letters in a row.

                    Do NOT do a Google search - see if you can answer it first.

                    There are only TWO countries in the world that begins with an "A" but does NOT end with an "A". What are they?
