Can you see speed? I think not.

Can you see something moving at a given speed? I think yes.

It might be like the wind... you don't really see the wind... you see the effect of the wind... leaves blowing, dust blowing, clouds blowing...

However, aside from me being nit picky with the words... interesting.

It's a catchy headline, it doesn't have to be correct.

It is best when the headline actually says something different from or even the opposite of the article/report/video.

Then you divide the population by who is paying attention vs who is not paying attention....

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who judge a book by its cover and those who judge a book by its content...

.... Ok, three kinds of people, if you include the people who don't care about the book either way...

... Ok, four kinds of people, if you include the people who wait for the movie...

... Ok, five.....

Well you get the point...

Also rumors, reviews and recommendations.

..Speaking of which....

On a whim, I found and purchased (used) a book that I was totally engrossed in as a child and had signed out, and renewed from the library numerous times:



I'd recommend it for any youngster - or youngster-at-heart

No ... You're thinking of The Net - The memorable moment was when they displayed an IP address that couldn't exist (probably some legal thing)

Speed is where she's with Keanu on a bus.

Edit: Damn, where's that thread? - there's 2 movies with SB

I remember the Net...it's one of those movies you laugh at when you watch it now...there was a scene with Sandra and the guy who she fell for who ended up being a crook on the beach and she said something like "We're on this beautiful beach and all I can think is 'where is my modem?'"

Modem???

I also remember her ordering pizza online and me thinking it was amazing.

I thought the net was really bad, when you want the guy kill Sandra, the acting was really bad. why they made this movie? her next movie " two if by sea " another turkey, that I had unfortunately sit through. it like five or six movies, it took to get a hit for her.
