Cue the monkey named Caeser.

Or Project X.  On the other hand, they could use it to control Jurassic Park....

Speed of FTL neutrinos is all relative.

It seems simple, once you look at it.

Ok, so the neutrinos were not actually traveling faster than light because their measurements were not accurate.

So why don't they just use the same equipment in the same locations to measure the traveling time of *light* as a reference? It seems that this would have been the very first thing to do -- calibrate the equipment and "tare" it to C.

Their measurements were accurate but they forgot to take into account the effects of special relativity when deriving the actual distance traveled. If they had measured the speed of light (via measurements of a radio wave from lab A to lab B, say), using the same clock as a reference (the same GPS satellite they used), and make the same calculation error, they would have seen that light was travelling faster than light, which would have clued them into their mistake much sooner.

well, at first their message read, help, we're searching for the error but don't find it. if, we've found something to travel faster than light...

So it's "this is faster than light ... for moderately low values of c"

Through a mountain or any other relatively opaque object, the value is c is definitely lower. :P

OMG. I just found out about "Sharknado" today, and it was already played last night.

When is it going to be on again?

I've been seeing a lot of references to Sharknado, but I know little to nothing about it. Although the little I've seen of it seems... silly.

Anything involving flying sharks is OK by me.

Just heard a bit of Sharknado on the wireless (CBC from Winnipeg), but switched it off as the premise sounded a bit silly, so I am in the dark as well.

Finally saw a trailer for it.

The only thing it seems to be missing are the full-screen graphics of 'bamm', 'ouchie', 'biff' like the old live-action Batman television series.

There is no way SiFi could play this in a serious fashion. It's completely absurd.

It's a direct-to-tv low budget movie commissioned by SyFy to fill airtime on their channel (I really shouldn't have posted it here, because SyFy doesn't really have anything to do with Science Fiction anymore).  Both the premise and the film itself are so outlandishly ridiculous, that it turned into an instant cult classic.  The twitterverse went crazy for it.

The basic idea is this: an unprecedented hurricane sweeps the coast due to global warming (this is fiction, remember) and the storm captures thousands of very large, very aggressive, man-eating sharks.  When the storm makes landfall in Santa Monica, it spins off a bunch of very large tornadoes, which are now full of these sharks.  The rest of the film involves the story of our fearless protagonist defending everyone against these tornadoes which are constantly flinging sharks at everyone.  The sharks are flung, of course, directly at people, fully alive and well, with their mouths wide open and ready to eat someone.

It's full of completely plausible scenes, such as this lovely one where our hero grabs a chainsaw just prior to being eaten by a shark, and then cuts himself out.

Like I said ... completely plausible.  :)   Instant cult classic.  It will air again on Thursday.  Don't miss it!
