I got up to 80 mph and people were still passing me!
Oh, how I remember when I was a kid at summer camp and I went out at night to an area with very little tree cover, lay on my back and stared up at the stars, with the milky way so vivid. My entire field of vision saw nothing but the sky. After about a minute I got the sensation that I was floating through space. I’ve never been able to do that since.
