Oh yeah. =)

I read this somwhere. It's not entirely accurate but here goes:

"...how long to Andromeda at 1g using Newton's theory? We will add the condition that we wish to stop when we get there, if only to turn around and come back. The best time we can make is achieved by accelerating for the first half of the journey and decelerating for the second. The total time for the trip can be calculated to be some 2,065 years. Rather a long time really. Consider the same journey in an Einsteinian Universe. We now have a limited maximum speed (the speed of light), which at 1g is reached in 30,000,000 seconds, or a little under 354 days. After we reach this speed, how much longer will it take to reach Andromeda? The answer is no time at all! For the distance to Andromeda will have shrunk to zero for the spacecraft. However to the people back on Earth a considerable length of time would pass: some 2.2 million years."

So why would the universe age 2.2 million years if we traveled at the speed of light?! And why would it only age 2000 years if we traveled at a sublight speed!?!

Did I read this wrong? Is this guy an idiot, am I an idiot? am I trippin out! tell me whats up.
