Speeding Ticket Fix

The next time you get a speeding ticket, try this: Tell 'em they can measure distance, and they can measure time, but they can't measure velocity. So there's no way they can know how fast you were going. Tell 'em Frank Shostak says so.

"Velocity Does Not Have an Independent Existence," Shostak says:

...velocity does not have a "life of its own." It is not an independent entity--it is always [one number] divided into [another number]. On this Rothbard wrote: "But it is absurd to dignify any quantity with a place in an equation unless it can be defined independently of the other terms in the equation."

Good luck with that speeding ticket.
