High-speed taxi ... or low-speed takeoff.

I landed in the first 150 feet of a runway in a Flightstar (Vx = 40 KIAS) and was taxiing past the main taxiway where an Air Asia 737 was waiting...

Tower: 9M-EAU please expedite.

Me: Wilco, 9M-EAU. [...while acclerating to about 15 knots on the ground.]

Air Asia Pilot: We can wait, sir. If he goes any faster he'll be flying again.
