"Dork Van de faggot" wrote in message news:kfp3ba$ku0$1@speranza.aioe.org... How hard is it to listen to the definitions and stick with the rules? "Did you ever had algebra?"  Dork Van de faggot "the transformation equations are valid only for speeds below or up to c"  Dork Van de faggot
 So if T = 5 years and v = 0.8c, then the stay at home twin will have aged 10 years (2T) while his travelling twin sister will have aged 6 years (2T/g). <no silly grin>  Psychodork Van de improper faggot.
