Faulty-cable FTL Neutrino experiment

http://news.sciencemag.org/scienceinsider/2012/02/breaking-news-error-undoes-faster.html?ref=hp#.T0U_N0pYVRc.twitter

So CERN had found a neutrino travelling faster than light -- they thought.  Apparently, a fiber-optic 'reference' cable was loose.  When they tightened it, their 60 nsec timing discrepancy went away.

D'oh.  On the other hand, this means our search for FTL comm gear just got a bit harder.

They should have used those gold-tipped monster cables from Best Buy

They probably already do, which is why it costs about $1 to make each atom of antimatter.

You want antimatter to be cheap?
H bombs not badass enough for you?

Faster than light...not good, specially in the morning...

186,000 miles per second.  It's not just a good idea, it's the law.
