Well, professor Jim Woodward has been working on his Mach/Lorentz thruster for a while now and has a working setup in the lab, and multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals. With his theory it is in fact possible to build startrek-style impuls engines, warpdrives and wormholes. And it all fits in our existing theoretical knowledge. He has a book out, published by Springer-Verlag (they don't publish nonsense):
Making Starships and Stargates
The Science of Interstellar Transport and Absurdly Benign Wormholes
Series: Springer Praxis Books Subseries: Space Exploration

actually, I think there's only one Autobahn now that has no speed limits. Everywhere else is pretty much Euro standard.
Really? Because just about everywhere that I can cross the dutch -> german border there is no speedlimit. That's all the same autobahn you say? Wow, so it must be 300 kilometers wide
The EU has a law from (2005-ish?) that requires all email headers for inbound/outbound users located in the EU be sent to EU-based law enforcement.
Nope. There is a requirement to log MAIL FROM / RCPT TO fields and keep those around for the "data-retention" time (differs between countries, 6 months to 2 years). It basically comes down to "set the rotate time for sendmail logs to 6 months". There is no information automatically sent to law enforcement. What's more, a lot of the EU countries have not implemented this directive in national law yet (unfortunately my country has).
The internal linux kernel API is not set in stone, but the ABI for applications that run on the kernel is. You can start applications from 1998 on a 3.0 linux kernel from this year, and they will run.
Woah that takes me back
