To admins: I'm having trouble with the download size of some of the videos on this site. For example, is it really necessary for this 17.5 minute speech to take up 180 MiB?

Go to: Enemies of Science Can Stop Gloating About the Fast Neutrinos

Interesting! The GPS synchronized time standard deep underground was the only plausible problem I could come up with when OPERA announced results months ago. Are they setting up redundant time references to swap in and out when new measurements start in May?

@Cat: Yes! I agree! They have identified some possible systematic errors but have to wait till the neutrino beam is switched on in CERN to make more measurements.

@PeteH: Why should the GPS signal either work or not? In fact, from the short report given, this cannot be true. Maybe they are amplifying the GPS antenna on the surface and running the analog signal down over fiber.

Comment 50 by Richard Dawkins : . . .

Andrew and I were delighted, by the way, to give the idiot Muslims enough rope to hang themselves. Much better not to interrupt them, although it would have tempting, when they were going on about how the whole body has to be intact for Allah at the day of judgement, to say, "Why do you guys so love chopping off hands, then?"


Not to mention bits of genitalia. And I suppose accepting an organ transplant must be out of the question as well. Or is that ok as long as the surgical team sort of leaves the old liver in there? (Disclaimer: I couldn't find the segment on organ donation on youtube)

Comment 56 by Vorlund :

Regretably I missed these does anyone have a link to recordings?

Happy to oblige - it's here at 34 minutes.

GPWC, your link is UK only... or I'm doing something wrong.

I found this (which I think is the BBC program mentioned) on youtube. (thank you, whoever uploaded it)
