RE: need advice for redicolous speeding ticket !!
You can be assured that the Court can read the ticket. If you were violating the law, it's going to be hard to beat the ticket, expecially when you didn't even bother showing up for court (from the state's perspective, that's how it looks). Call the clerk of the court NOW and see what you can do as far as getting it back on the docket and then call the DMV to see what you can do about driver's school to avoid the points.
Oh, and when you're driving? If you must drive ten over at least pay attention to the damn road and don't "chit chat" with your friends. Personally I think you're lucky you didn't have an equally-inattentive pedestrian walk into a crosswalk in front of you; instead of a fine you could be facing vehicular manslaughter charges. I can appreciate why your dad is not pleased with you.
Last question: What is ridiculous about the ticket? You broke the law and got caught. Would it be less ridiculous if it had taken him 20 minutes and his handwriting was flawless?
