This is COOL, but if this was accepted, how come mine wasn't?

Yours wasn't accepted because it is essentially a duplicate of this one. Sorry, but Midknight beat you by three days.

Much faster? In relation to what? You might be stationary with respect to some other point on the surface of Mars at a particular time.

i sorta agree with jimbo. but that was a good teaser, and since you specified it was faster, one has to assume its the earth's orbit.

jsdodger, even if you are going the opposite direction, you're still going faster than a 100mph.
