Bruce,
Well, a long time ago I decided to find out what you scientists were up to with your distance contraction and where it came from. I found out where it came from.

c=300,000 km/sec = x/t = x'/[t(c-v)/c]

=(x-vt)/(t-vx/c^2) = (x-vt)gamma/(t-vx/c^2)gamma

= x'Lorentz/t'Lorentz

x'Lorentz is a longer distance than x'.

To be honest, I have accomplished what I set out to do. Now you put forth a bunch of little fools errands and tell me that if I do not do them immediately, then you have proven that the above equation is wrong. I might do the little fools errands or maybe not. That has nothing to do with what the Lorentz equations mean.
I might take up a new hobby now that I have accomplished this one, or I might work some more simple algebra. Now here is what strikes me. You scientists have complete domination of this world. You have everyone except me believing your distance contraction. But you do not seem completely happy. Something seems to be missing in your lives. Perhaps you might want to consider using the correct distances in your equations. It is just a suggestion.
