<blink> Where did that come from? The twin "paradox" involves bringing the two twins back together, which necessitates accelerating at least one of them, making their frame noninertial.</blink>

================================================== "If one of two synchronous clocks at A is moved in a closed curve with constant velocity until it returns to A, the journey lasting t seconds, then by the clock which has remained at rest the travelled clock on its arrival at A will be 1/2 tv^2/c^2 second slow."  Einstein. <blink/> Noninertial? Where did that come from? The twin "paradox" involves bringing the two twins back together, which necessitates keeping one at absolute rest, but the phenomena of electrodynamics as well as of mechanics possess no properties corresponding to the idea of absolute rest. Oh wait, I get it. You are discussing Phuckwit Duck's special relativity, not Einstein's special relativity. </blink>
