Faster-than-light neutrino experiment may have been flawed: scientists  

Not so fast!

An experiment that appeared to show matter could travel faster than the speed of light - flying in the face of Einstein's theory of relativity - may have been flawed, the journal Science reported.

In the original experiments, subatomic particles called neutrinos blasted from CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, traveled 450 miles to Italy 60 nanoseconds faster than a beam of light.

But researchers revealed that a fiber-optic cable connecting a GPS receiver and a "master clock" computer may have been loose, Science reports.

"There is a screw and you have to turn it, but we're not sure if it was well-calibrated," said Arnaud Marsollier, a spokesman for CERN.

"It would be embarrassing if a nasty cable is the reason."

Ancient plants back to life after 30,000 frozen years

Life is the most amazing phenomena in Nature... life does anything it can to continue. The cascade of life's existence is finding better ways to live. Even the programming of mind, body and spirit, are dedicated to this task... and when we stray from the natural path, trouble begins.

The question is: Are the artificial constructs of thinking beasts any less "natural" than anything else found in Nature? Creation is every creatures purpose. Taking risks can be dangerous to the risk taker... but never to Nature. Nature learns from the ups and downs and means.

In the natural scheme of things this had to happen... but it's risky because Nature cascades. One little change in the wrong place can cause entire ecospheres to return to the dust from which they came... and allow something else to "happen" in the vacuum thus effected.

Be careful out there, Scientists.

The right's stupidity spreads, enabled by a too-polite left

by George Monbiot
Guardian UK
February 8, 2012


Self-deprecating, too liberal for their own good, today's progressives stand back and watch, hands over their mouths, as the social vivisectionists of the right slice up a living society to see if its component parts can survive in isolation. Tied up in knots of reticence and self-doubt, they will not shout stop. Doing so requires an act of interruption, of presumption, for which they no longer possess a vocabulary.

Perhaps it is in the same spirit of liberal constipation that, with the exception of Romeo Tuma, we have been too polite to mention the Canadian study published last month in the journal Psychological Science, which revealed that people with conservative beliefs are likely to be of low intelligence. Paradoxically it was the Daily Mail that brought it to the attention of British readers last week. It feels crude, illiberal to point out that the other side is, on average, more stupid than our own. But this, the study suggests, is not unfounded generalisation but empirical fact...

  I saw what you did there...

There's no gentle way to put it: People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb, according to a new study that is bound to stir public controversy...



 
I've seen stupid people on both sides of the fence.

And for those people I've seen who say they're so smart, they're usually lacking the most common of common sense.
Book smart, life stupid.

You got the joke wrong.

"Neutrino steps up to the bar.

Bartender can't see him yet, so neutrino, thinking he's being ignored, leaves in a huff (at 1.8c).

Bartender then says, "we don't serve neutrinos here", and everybody laughs at the bartender because the neutrino had already left."

 
Ideally you should have posted this before beaker posted the joke.
