Stand-up comedy junkie, geek, and closet romantic. Introspectively sexy. Flyyer than your girlfriend, fresher than your crew. 'Bougie', 'siddity', and generally okay with that. But sometimes, I just wanna do hoodrat stuff with my friends. My richness consists not in the extent of my possessions, but in the fewness of my wants. And all I want is simplicity and success. And maybe some more shoes.
Speed of light may have been broken
Okay 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.
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?

You do realize who you’re talking to, right?
We’re ALL thinking that!
From double sunrise to double sunset the show goes on, always changing.
Sometimes the orange sun rises first. Sometimes it is the red one, although they are never far apart in the sky and you can see them moving each other, casting double shadows across the firmament and periodically crossing right in front of each other.
Such is life, if it were possible, on the latest addition to the pantheon of weird planets now known to exist outside the bounds of our own solar system. It is the first planet, astronomers say, that has been definitely shown to be orbiting two stars at once, circling at a distance of some 65 million miles a pair of stars that are themselves circling each other much more closely.
