    I am not kidding here: the group that is reporting having observed the faster-than-light neutrinos is known as OPERA, for Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tRacking Apparatus.

    And so I think the faster-than-light-neutrino phenomenon must be a phantom.

    Doesn’t anyone remember the cold-fusion debacle?

    (I’m sure the answer to all this must be 42.)

    Neutrinos pass through matter, e.g. humans and the earth, and thus through the “Fat Lady” when she sings the closing aria in the style of a Marx Brothers movie on this OPERA.
