Speed of light


This is called question begging and appeal to authority, both of which are fallacies.

We have measured the TWO-WAY speed of light, and "c" is how we've defined the result.

What we're trying to determine however, which has NOT been measured, EVER, is the ONE-WAY speed of light, from a source to the first object that the light encounters.
It gets complicates things when you have two opposing Poynting Vectors. "c" is also a rotational force in electricity, and may very well be electricity speed.

I blame you for an hour of wasted time. I watched the Fridge video and then there were several videos on Larry Bird's trash talking skills. As good of a basketball player as he was he was far better at trash talking. He knew just how to get into his opponent's head.
