We traveled between two mile markers in 18 seconds. Do the math.

the mods suck. this site is going down like iccarus.
I find consolation in these comments. If all the morons are busy on here here leaving comments, it means they're not having sex. And that's a good thing.
20MPH? I now imagine this text taking place on a horse galloping down a highway.
what was the idiot saying about most people start at one so its really 19 seconds..... thats retarded
because multiplying and dividing is soo difficult..... oh wait.
why do you even care???

I'll second that.
...and in VA they are every .1 miles. Except for the one someone ran over the other day.

These comments are hysterical. Funnier than the post. Where I'm from MILE markers, mark MILES. Not tenth miles. Must be a nawthun thing. So I say 1 mile in 18 sec, which is about 180 mph. Yeah, not.
OK Math illiterates...
2Mi/18sec = 1mi/9sec = .11mi/1sec
This means their going .11Mi/sec
Convert that back into MPH...
.11mi/sec X 60 = 6.66mi/min
6.66mi/min X 60 = 400MPH!!!
Somebody's been sneaking into the Air Force's garage and stealing jet engines!
Not every state in the Union has mile markers set to .1 or .2 miles. In SC we have them once every mile.
maine is the most wonderful place ever. you can time travel there, did you know?
mile markers are 1/10th of a mile apart. 18 seconds to travel 1/10th of a mile is a blazing 20 mph
hey...dumbass...they're called MILE markers, therefore theyre every mile!!!!!!!..not every tenth of a mile you dumb fuck
If you start counting at one instead of zero on accident wouldn't that make it 17 not 19?
Wait u actually did the math? Get a life
Wow, I feel retarded even weighing in on this one but being from Maine I figured I'd toss in my two cents. Mile markers here are 1 mile apart and the highway is empty enough, especially at night, to easily hit 200mph in a vehicle capable of such a feat. Knowing how the kids up here like to trick out their vehicles I can see 200 MPH as perfectly plausible.
(248)I survived the trip.
Maybe they realized they shouldn't have sent it because of how stupid they sound.
mile markers mark miles. They're every mile, I dunno what state does it every .1 miles...
Also 18 seconds = 3/10th of a minute, 60 mph = 1mile/minute so 10/3 of 60 gives you 200 miles per hour. And between two posts is one mile.
But yeah this is bullshit as no one is going 200mph on the freeway.
Also don't bitch at other people because you can't do mental math.
You're all fucking idiots for reading all of the posts, doing the math (incorrectly for the most part), and then trying to make your own points. Oh wait... I just did exactly that
I can't decide if I feel dumber or smarter after reading all that shit back and forth between a few of you....But one things for sure.. it just wasted about 5 minutes of my life....
Wait, if we're going on 1 Mile Markers shouldn't it be around 150 mph?
One mile in 1 minute is 60 mph.
One mile in 30 seconds is 120 mph.
If you round to 15 seconds that's 150 miles an hour.
So he'd be going a little less than 150 mph, which is reasonable. I've done 130 mph in my little Civic.
wasn't funny in the first place
If he traveled BETWEEN 2 mile markers, that's ONE mile.
one mile in 18 seconds is 3.3 miles a minute or 198 miles an hour.
nice job. =]
THAT'S NOT FUCKING POSSIBLE
this text sucks but the comments are hilarious so it was worth the trouble

well actually between two mile markers(which occur every tenth of a mile) would 1/10th of a mile... good job on your awesome logic...
NJ, NY, and PA use every 10th of mile dumb ass...
This one's from Maine, dumbass.
hey...dumbass...they're called MILE markers, therefore theyre every mile!!!!!!!..if its anything other than a mile, their called something else!!!!!!!!!
Mile marker #1 => 20.0 miles
Mile marker #2 => 20.1 miles
0.1/(18/3600) = 20 miles/hour
ur stupid...they traveled a mile in 18 secs...that translates to 102 MPH, most cars govern out at 100 MPH, but going down hill they can go a little faster, so this text is probably true...dumb fuck!!
IT IS EASILY 200 MPH. FUCKING IDIOTS CAN'T DO MATH.
its 102MPH...not that hard of math
If you were going 120MPH it would 30 secs to go one mile. Double check your math. That is all.
Pretty sure if you get out of a big city, the mile markers are actually a mile apart (at least where I go to school). So that would mean he went one mile in 18 seconds. Didn't think it was that hard to understand.
as for the site deteriorating due to texts that "miss the point of the website)...TFLN has moderators that select which texts are posted. you can't simply submit "Hi. What are you up to?" as a text and expect to see it posted.
Mile marker #1 => 20.0 miles
Mile marker #2 => 20.2 miles
0.2/(18/3600) = 4 miles/hour
Mile markers mark miles, not tenth miles. The closest Interstate to where i live is 40 mins...
I think some of these comments were funnier than the text just because people apparently don't have common sense. YAY!
You're did it improperly.
18/2=9. you traveled 9.
wow.... i agree with the other person from Maine. Inaccuracy of counting aloud + the exclusion of fractions of a second + I95 (pretty much our only highway) + very young kids with really well paying seasonal jobs = I think that this is actually a damn feasible text.
the thing is, if they WERE driving fast, should they have been texting?
this is hilarious, i'm glad only one person here knows how to do a 7th grade unit conversion lol
well if you take into account that most people start counting at 1 and not zero, its technically closer to about 19 seconds in which case would be about 189 mph.
you should have said "You" and not "you're". jack ass.
lol, I was just about to say... mile markers really happen either every tenth of a mile or quarter of a mile...
dumb fuck...its a MILE marker, therefore its every MILE, not every tenth of a mile or quarter of a mile...stupid idiot, gooooosh
Shoot yourselves. Twice.
they guy saying "Im wasted" made these replies so fucking funny cause it was so random. props to the guy drunk at work
its 20 mph guys.. read up
Do not underestimate the drive (pun intended, I guess) of bored teenage Mainers who have nothing better to do with their time than work a bunch of jobs and funnel all that money into their cars. It's not every Mainer, definitely, but there are plenty of them, trust me.

"I can't decide if I feel dumber or smarter after reading all that shit back and forth between a few of you....But one things for sure.. it just wasted about 5 minutes of my life...."
Took you five minutes to read this? Maybe you are retarded... time to reevaluate
Yeah, mile markers have 1/10th mile markers now... At least around here.
Dude, they very well could have been goin 200 miles, NEVER underestimate the sheer force that is stupidity. I went 110 mph once in my four cylinder 96 Toyota Tacoma in highschool. But I do concur with everyone who says this txt was filler. I just wanted someone to do the math for me.
this is totaly stupid, but i cant stop laughing
its funnier knowing he was going 20 mph
I can't believe I read the whole thing. I'm just itching to put my own 2 cents in, but what's the point?
Anonymous, you're so silly
Hey, retard, passing BETWEEN 2 mile markers = a distance of 1 mile... good job on the 4th grade math... awful job using basic logic (which is what counts)
waste of my time ;-)
shit I'm drunk now...at work :-)
okay. for everyone who does not live in Maine, or has never traveled to Maine. Our mile markers are 1 mile apart, not 1/10 mile...
"Wow, I feel retarded even weighing in on this one but being from Maine I figured I'd toss in my two cents.

No its not. most ferraris don't even reach 200 mph.
Unless these "tricked out" cars you see around are super cars, you are quite incorrect.
all of your fucking comments made that text not even funny anymore. thanks dickheads.
one mile / minute is 60 miles an hour.
2 miles in about 20 seconds, that's one mile in about 10 seconds.
60 *3 = 180 miles / hour.
Heads up mile markers aren't placed at 1 mile intervals. Most of them at 1/8 of a mile(at least where I live) intervals meaning around 22-24MPH. Which quite honestly makes even less sense.
i thought it was funny. time feels different when smashed. and when traveling at a velocity that warps the space / time continuum. i used to watch star trek, i'll have you know.
I are sorry. "Jackass" is one word. Tit for tat, motherfucker.
since i live in maine...first off, we don't have fucking time travel. so whoever said that is fucking retarded. and there is NOT enough traffic anyweheres on the interstate in maine that you would have to go 20 mph. so most likely they were going a lot faster than they should have been...
YOU CAN PASS 2 MILE MARKERS AFTER ONLY DRIVING A MILE (RETARDS) they were going like 160... keep up all the grade A math though
no, mile markers AREN'T every mile; they're every 0.1 mile, fuckstick
Everyone needs to read the ENTIRE conversation up to here, I got many a good laugh at the failure of basic math skills and shit talking.
"find consolation in these comments. If all the morons are busy on here here leaving comments, it means they're not having sex. And that's a good thing."
you just did too...and so did i...fuck
They might not have been in Maine.
yeaaa 207 represent our insatiable lust for fast trucks, country music, and dogs who will ride with us yeaaaaa
I'm laughing my ass off at all of these responses...I'm scratching my head as to why everyone assumes op was referring to going 'fast'??
This whole conversation was a really good read! Five stars!
the text says BETWEEN two mile markers. They didn't travel BY two mile markers.
its easy, 3,600 seconds in an hour, divide that by 18 to get mph. = 200. not in maine you didnt.
you're doing it wrong (all approximated for easy sake)
18 seconds...round it to 20. 20 seconds=2/3rdminute
so, 2 miles in about 20 seconds, and thus 1 mile in 10 second (APPROXIMATED)
and thus, 6 miles in a minute, multiply by 60 for the umber of minutes in an hour, you were traveling (APPROXIMATELY) 360mph...
so you were the heaviest, most powerful, and most aerodynamic car possible, going downhill, and had someone pushing at the same time...or in an aircraft of some sort.
