permitt a small quote sir:
" But ACTUAL speeds are meaningless. Any object always have a velocity of zero to the frame of referance that follows it, and for any other frame of referance, the speed varies depending of the frame. The object in the above story has many different velocities depending on the frame of referance."

this may be the source of your sleepless nights.
can you clarify the above snippet?

regards tim
