The reason so many socialists are gleefully trashing libertarians over this fire-story (with a guaranteed +5 insightful) is because they only consider events dramatic enough to make the news. A loss that is spread out evenly over many people goes straight into their blind spot. It is unjust to force anyone to pay for fire service. That injustice is nothing to socialists because it isn't a dramatic event they can point to. But multiply it out over the vast number of people the injustice is imposed on, and the loss is greater than this house that burned down. Too bad a full cost/benefit analysis would make too boring a story for anyone to watch.

If the power output is constant, you'd start off like a rock out of a slingshot. Then as you reached top speed the acceleration would taper off asymtotically. Kinetic energy = 1/2 mass x velocity^2 I think.
