CERN scientists break the speed of light, maybe

Scientists at CERN in Geneva say they have discovered subatomic particles that move faster than light, the theoritcal maximum speed of anything according to Einstein's Theory of Relativity. If proven, expert's say the discovery will blow Einstein's 1905 theory out of the water. Watch this space.

The bartender says: "Sorry, we don't serve neutrinos traveling faster than the speed of light." A neurino walks into a bar.

I already heard that one from a neutrino next week.

report not entirely accurate....they have not 'discovered' sub atomic particles that travel faster than light.....they have results that seem to indicate that already know sub atomic particles 'neutrino's' are in the case of this experiment, a bit faster than expected. Millions of neutrino's pass through you and everything else every second. What happened here is that some stray neutrino's..... hanging around on a street corner, up to no good, saw the test neutrino's coming, and crept into the receiving apparatus just ahead of them, causing much scientific head scratching and giving Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity (appendix C, sub para 75) "Neutrino's! Goddam punk assed trouble causers!!!!" A new lease of life.......Prof Brian Cox sitting in the corner humming "Things can only get better" while rocking woefully against the coffee machine.
