A little math

Just doing a little math this morning.... understand this is only math so don't read anything else into it...

If a man, age 40, was to date a girl, age 10, well, that would just be wrong, he's 4 times as old as she is. So he waits 5 years.

He's 45 and she's 15. Now he's only 3 times as old as she is. Better, but still, I mean... too much age difference going on there.

So he waits 15 more years, figures that's a good time to wait. Now he's 60 and she's 30. He's only twice as old as she is. Things are getting better.

Now my question is, how much longer does he have to wait until they're the same age???

Oh look.... I'm out of coffee. I just love being retired

Yeah, I'm an engineer. My first engineering professor asked for this on a units conversion exam.

Anyone know what it is without Googling it?

Warp Factor One, as Kirk might say. Ok, I cheated a little, had to look up how long a furlong (201.168 meters). Count yer zeros carfully.

Yup. Speed of light, or as another put it, warp factor one.

The test I mentioned started with 'c' expressed in meters per second, and we had to convert it as shown....using a slide rule. Yep, that long ago.

I told a colleague about this, and he came up with it, showing all his work. He did use a calculator. I had to do it the hard way back then.
