Faster than light

This clever Limerick expresses the exaggerating relativity’s violation of common sense

There was a young lady named Bright,
Whose speed was far faster than light;

She set out one day
In a relative way,
And returned home the previous night.

-Arthur Buller    (1874–1944)

    Paradox…or is it stretched imagination…or certainty? Either way, it is childlike rejuvenation to wonder if such could be 🙂
