Date: Mon, 12 Feb 1996 12:55:06 +0100 From: "E.W. Schneider" Subject: warp speed? Here's one for the younger generation amongst you folks out there. Snowboarders (and mountainbikers, I'm told) use the expression "warp speed" for "high speed". This is said to be a very recent expression; is it really? Does anybody have a reasonable idea as to an explanation, and the precise semantics, of this? Thanks for any responses!
