Actually, the laws of physics no longer apply as your approach the speed of light. I learned that when I took my quantum physics class.

That is the only thing I remember from that class. The rest of it went waaaaay over my head.

Why don't you go back to the dealer and tell them your car is a lemon since it doesn't repeal the law of physics... Hopefully they'll give you a refund!

This truly comes as a great shock to me, as I am sure it does to you too. In all seriousness, if I had known that E90 could not repeal the laws of physics, I would not have bought it. I asked my CA about this and he said it would. I am disappointed beyond description as a result of this revelation. This is my last BMW!

Here's another one...

If you drive at the speed of light, will your headlights work?

Uhm, dude, no offence, but your picture quite clearly shows three dudes grinding on each other. I don't care how hot the chick in the foreground is, that is just plain disgusting.

And the whole point of this thread is that it is a sad sad world when BMW has to disclose the fact that DSC cannot repeal the laws of physics.

Technically your head light would not work.

Let me explain.

For example, lets assume that the speed of light 1 MPH. Which means that in an hour the light would reach a mile (forget the fact that the source needs to be powerful for a second here).

Given the fact that you are travelling at the speed of light, you would get there the same time light should have, which means that your headlights will not work.

This would happen from the point you hit the speed of light and onwards, while you acclerate to the speed of light, your lights will work.

Everything sounds ok here, except when I think about it, if someone reaches the speed of light, should they not become invisible... hmmm lemme think over this again.

Let me correct myself.

Your headlights would work for you, but for someone who is standing head on, it would not work.

wow... I was being sarcastic?
but I do wonder thought, does being faster than the speed of light = time travel? this I'm not being sarcastic

Yes, desinole, I agree the theory behind your suggestion. However, according to quantum physics, I believe you are indeed still in error; allow me to explain.

Time is measured in the distance it takes light to reach physical matter. Our perception of time is directly related to the speed of light. Therefore, if we were to accelerate past the speed of light, and even if the headlights were on, they (the event of the headlights being on) wouldn't have happened yet, in our sense of perception, relative to time...



































just kidding actually I have no idea what I'm talking about! I hated physics!

No. It would not be time travel. Coz time has nothing to do with light. No matter how fast you travel, you would still be using up time. You would just be getting to your destination really really fast.
