Ohh I liked that!

I've had quite a few heated arguments with my friends about the theoretical possibilities/limitations of time travel and speed of light travel.

Also, that reminds me, in a similar vein-ish, i read this recently, you might find it a bit interesting, i know i did.

I still always read this as the Large Hardon Collider...

Time travel debate updated (backdated? cross-referenced? rebated?).

So what do you all think about the CERN madness, whatwith neutrinos breaking the cosmic speed limit? Brian Cox hypothesizes that maybe they actually didn't; that maybe they just took a shortcut through one of the many unseeable dimensions. I kind of hope he's right, because if special relativity got screwed up, I wouldn't know what to think!

I think it's pretty cool! Who'd have thought that it'd be those wimpy neutrinos to do it! (But it would be just like them to take a shortcut.)
