We finally discovered that bad news is made out of neutrino particles.

This About That: factoryconnection: That was a thoroughly interesting read.  Thank you for applying the right tag to it. Given the (unstated in TFA) distance of 168000 light years to SN1987a, the 4.7 hour differential represents a 3.2E-7% difference in the predicted versus observed light arrival time.

Significant for astrophysicists, certainly, and would represent an error of 41 years in the estimated 13B year age of the universe.

Here we go again, revising history.


"Science" got it wrong again.  You know what never changes?  The Bible.

So, science DOESN"T have all the answers like they always claim! Therefore Mitt Romney is president, Stephen Hawking gets unplugged, all science books are burned, and Pat Robertson gets lifetime-appointment as head of the U.N.

Or about 10 minutes in the 6000 year Biblical age. ;)

dryknife: My ex wife used to say our household emergency flashlight which had a "regular" and "bright" setting had two speeds.


Yeah, and?  I've been known to complain about a really loud odor.

/ made a cashier fall down laughing - ex-wife had sent me to the pink aisle to grab a box of plugs, and I grabbed 'the wrong flavor.'

The speed limit is just a suggestion anyway.
