“Events often move faster than our ability to comprehend them.” -Lee H. Hamilton


But sometimes, going ever faster is where all the fun is at. Have a listen to the Stray Cats, from their debut album, as they plow through their title track,

Built For Speed.
Well, believe it or not, I think my car just became a neutrino! Why’s that? See for yourself!

(For those of you who need a little help, remember that the USA does distances in miles.)

Of course, I had to push it just a little bit more to become an OPERA neutrino

so if you see that Cohen-Glashow radiation out there on the highway, don’t worry.

It’s just my car, thinking it’s a neutrino!

(No Toyotas went back in time and killed their own grandfathers in the writing of this post.)

    Having been brought up in Australia in the 1960s, 186,282 is the number I learnt for the speed of light. I don’t even know what it is to that accuracy in kilometers/second.
