That is really funny. I mean if you were trying to imply that the best way to accelerate a Mac is to trow it out the window, let me comment on a small detail you may want to change in the future:
The acceleration of gravity is defined as 9.78 m/sec(SQUARED) and not "sec/sec". If my arithmetics are correct the square of sec is sec*sec or sec multiply by sec. In the other hand sec/sec or sec divided by sec is ONE (any number divided by itself is one, any number divided by 1 is the same unaffected number).
So your equation above could be interpreted as a line 9.8 meters long worth of Macs. An then I'll have to agree, it would be a great arrangement to accelerate doing whatever job you might have.
