Slow down, live longer

Are you the driver who passed me the other day?

I was in a line of vehicles travelling slightly faster than the posted speed limit. You were in that bright shiny car, the one trying to exceed the speed of light. As far as I know, there is only one thing that can get us from one place to another faster than the speed of light: our imagination.

Next time you are hurtling through space at breakneck speed, you should try using yours. Look into the future and see what will happen if you suddenly meet an immovable object. Have a long life and let the rest of us enjoy ours.
