Subject: More on warp speed
I think every American in their thirties or forties must know what warp
speed means. It was popularized in Star Trek starting in the late 60s and
it's as much a part of our language as "beam me up" or the phrase "to boldly
go where no man has gone before," which gave a legitimacy to the split
infinitive that no antiquated usage guide will ever be able to destroy.
