    SPEED

    "At a snail's pace." The fastest land snail on record is a specimen named Colly, who in 1970 traversed a 2' piece of glass in 3 minutes; a speed of .00758 mph.

    Book of Lists, #2, p. 142.


    Scientific measurements indicate that we are moving even when we are standing still. Continental land masses sit on enormous slabs of rock that slide very slowly at the rate of l to 8 inches per year. America is gradually moving westward, away from Europe, at the rate of 3 inches per year. If that doesn't blow your hair back, consider this. Our Milky Way galaxy is hurtling through space at 375 miles per second or l.3 million miles per hour. But that's not all. Within our own galaxy the sun and its solar system are zooming along at 12.4 miles per second (43,000 mph) in the direction of the star Vega in the constellation Lyra.
