  • Faux faster than light travel?

    I know that FTL travel is thought to be impossible since the amount of energy required to propel an object of any mass become infinite the closer you get to the speed of light.

    HOWEVER, since speed is relative to an observer, isn't all that is required to reach FTL speed as follows:

    (1) Ship "A" heads North at slightly greater than half the speed of light.

    (2) Ship "B" heads South at slightly greater than half the speed of light.

    That way for people on Ship "A", they feel like they're standing still, but looking at Ship "B", Ship "B" is indeed traveling at FTL speed.

  • Best way to scrape away gills on a portobello mushroom?

    Should I cut it away with a knife? Can you scrape with a dull spoon? Is there something marketed out there?
