Me too. But I must jump in (and I swore I wouldn't) - the average speed
would be distance traveled divided by the time to get there, so if you're
going 30 and then 90, 2 miles in 2.75 minutes = avg speed of 43.6 MPH.
The answer would be you have to travel 186,000 miles per second, or the speed
of light so that in Einstein's T=To*(1-v^2/c^2) relativity relation, where v
is your velocity and c is the speed of light, v approaches c, T becomes zero,
and time, for the second mile, does not exist.
