Patience my good people. We all remember what happened the last time there was a rare particle delay...

Out of curiosity: what are you referring to?

The barman says "We don't serve neutrinos here"

A neutrino walks into a bar.

Isn't that a tachyon?

The news was that neutrino was measured to have FTL speed.

Probably the faster than light neutrino a little while back. Turned out to be a loose cable if I recall correctly.

I have to give the news media credit for not subsequently reporting:

"Experts Report Loose Cables Probable Method of Faster-Than-Light-Travel! How You Will Soon Make the Kessel Run in Less Than Twelve Parsecs."

Parsec is a measurement of distance not time.

Google "Kessel Run in Less Than Twelve Parsecs"


Although it seems like the gp misread decay.

"decay", not "delay"

ah hell. Poor reading skills this morning.
