Bullseye, Part 2

This, from Bloomberg, cracked me up.

A neutrino beam was measured as traveling faster than the speed of light, appearing to break the limit set by Albert Einstein in 1905.

Really? Albert Einstein had the power to set cosmic speed limits? Did he post speed limit signs?

an astrophysicist said “There is probably something in the experiment that the experimenters still don’t understand.”

um, duh? Ya think?

However, I do belive this to be possible. Cherenkov radiation for example is a product of faster than light velocity, but there is a trick to it.

I'd rather see $$ spent toward this than intervention in foreign military adventures. It might even "create jobs", which should be a shoo-in about this time, if you know what I mean.
