    Scientists think they've observed neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light. It's kind of funny, because they are all pretty sure that's impossible:

    so does that mean they're traveling into the future?

    These scientists took the magic out of neutrinos.[/crossthread]

    Don't the effects of quantum entanglement appear to be faster than the speed of light?

    Either our understanding of the universe fundamentally changes ... or we get to watch a scientist eat his shorts. Win-win!

    I'm skeptical because the speeding particle was caught on a red-light camera.

    I guess we just need to make the speed of light faster.

    "We don't allow faster than light neutrinos in here" said the bartender. A neutrino walks into a bar.

    (stolen from Twitter...a little physics humor).
