KEYBOARD SMASHING GOOD TIMES TO BE HAD BY ALL.

Please feel free to give me your money via etsy.

If you came for the alternative autism criteria, they are available here (revised version here).

Let's start at the very beginning /Do you have questions into the nature of the universe? Pose them here./ I can't.

Speed of light may have been brokenOkay guys, this one is hot off the press. I’ve only found two sources for this (here and here) that have been posted in the last hour. I have to say that I immediately doubt the validity of this, but I feel I should bring it to your attention anyway.Reports from our good friends at CERN say that they’ve observed particles traveling at faster than light speeds. For those of you who know a bit about relativity, this ain’t all that cool. The speed of light is basically meant to be the fastest speed there is, and if this wasn’t the case then we may have a major breakdown of Einstein’s theory of relativity.The scientists at CERN have concluded this based off results in which a beam of neutrinos fired from a particle accelerator in Geneva traveled 434 miles 60 nanoseconds faster than it should have. This may not sound like much, but the error was calculated at 10 nanoseconds and the scientists themselves seem fairly adamant in their results.

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
Hold the fuck up.
(This is the second thing I’ve heard about the theory of relativity being questionable in the past few months, though. ffffffff-)
BOOST THE FUCK OUT OF THIS SIGNAL.

SCREAMING
If this is true…

I just read this on the news.  It’s an amazing story to wake up to.

I’ll wait until I hear more before I get excited about this /skeptical bastard.

Will you guys lose all respect for me if I confess that my first thought was that contraption looks an awful lot like the Mirror of Twilight in Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess?

-looks around tumblr-
You do realize who you’re talking to, right?
We’re ALL thinking that!

Sadly, CERN’s press release to actual discovery ratio is…poor. The chances that this turns out to be accurate are not very good.
