Harv,

Just so that your stupidity becomes more apparent, a better way to define acceleration is a = d(dx/dt)/dt. I would use the proper double-derivative symbol if I had it, but I'm sure you're knowledgeable enough to understand the equation without it.

Now your demand for a definition of velocity becomes a demand for a definition of space. Oh, and you missed the opportunity to be really annoying by demanding a definition for time. But I'm smarter than you and I'll tell you:

space: is whatever you want it to be, in whatever reference frame you want it to be, and whatever else you want to add

time: is whatever you want it to be, in whatever reference frame you want it to be, and whatever else you want to add

If you were smart enough, you'd see that the definition of acceleration applies to whatever you want to apply it. But unfortunately for you, you're not smart enough.

I'm really, really sorry.
