Neutrinos | Cause for Con(CERN)

13 Comments 27 | September | 2011

After 3 years of testing and research and months of second-guessing, re-research, re-testing, and time-biding the spokesman for CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research), Antonio Eriditato announced on Thursday that light may have just been dethroned as “the fastest shit1 in the universe”2.  Neutrinos, which are elementary subatomic particles, were fired from the CERN laboratory (in Geneva, Switzerland) and arrived at the INFN Gran Sasso Laboratory in Italy approximately 60 nanoseconds faster than if they had been traveling light speed.  “Big whoop, Poindexter.”  Big whoop is right, Spicoli.  Here’s why.
