Comment: The example is stupid... (Score 3, Insightful) 124

by sealawyer2003 (#18017626) Attached to: New Accelerator Technique Doubles Particle Energy
'Imagine a car that accelerates from zero to sixty in 250 feet, and then rockets to 120 miles per hour in just one more inch. First of all at non relativisitc speeds, doubling the speed results in a four fold increase in kinetic energy and not a doubling. Why give a bad classical mechanics analogy and then tell us that the speed didn't actually double because of relativistic effects.

The meat is rotten, but the booze is holding out. Computer translation of "The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak."
