To explain how speed has an effect on time:Ripper said:He explained it, he didn't *prove* it.
Let's say a ship is traveling from Earth and someone on earth shines the light at the ship every thirty seconds and the ship does the same to the Earth. Imagine the lights as concentric circles that expand from the center each object. As the ship flies away, the circles are thirty seconds apart, but after tthe ship turns around and comes back, the lights are not thirty seconds apart. They are closer, of course.

It is hard to explain. I saw a video in science class that TOTALLY made sense, but I think I just cause more confusion. I have no business explaining lightspeed or time.
In short, you don't have to be going lightspeed to have an effect on time, it is just that the effect is only noticable when you are moving at lightspeed.
So. If you want to stay young, while everyone else gets old, go REALLY REALLY FAST.
Also, pineapples are like grenades (best fruit ever).
