Why not use 89, maybe 100 miles per hour? Is 88 the fast a DeLorean can go? In other metrics, I have:
Miles per hour 88.00 [mph][mi/h] Miles per second 0.0244 [mps][mi/s] Yards per second 42.944 [yps][yd/s] Feet per second 128.832 [fps][ft/s] Kilometers per hour 141.3648 [km/h][kmh][kph][kmph] Kilometers per second 0.0393 [km/s] Meters per second 39.3 [m/s] Knot 76.3931 [kn] nautical mile per hour Mach Speed 0.1155 [Ma] (speed of sound) Light Speed 1.3110e-7 [c]
There does not appear to be anything special with this number. So why was it 88 MPH?
