…I cannot describe this, only show it.

I just got sent this.  I… think it’s real.  Michael Winslow is That Guy from Police Academy, after all.

And if it is: you know, I just may have wasted my life by not learning how to do that.

“CERN claims faster-than-light particle measured.”

You know what the most exciting statement in science is?

Huh.  That’s weird.”

Scientists at the world’s largest physics lab said Thursday they have clocked neutrinos traveling faster than light. That’s something that according to Einstein’s 1905 special theory of relativity – the famous E (equals) mc2 equation – just doesn’t happen.

“The feeling that most people have is this can’t be right, this can’t be real,” said James Gillies, a spokesman for the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, outside the Swiss city of Geneva.

Hot Air Headlines (via AoSHQ Headlines) said it best: “Dude?”

Dude.  Although you shouldn’t get your hopes up.

Define “Over the top.”

Is that a synonym for “totally awesome?” Because I’m hard-pressed to say which one of these is better.  My normal “Batman rule-of-thumb” is in full opposition to “anything fighting Nazis rule-of-thumb,” here…

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude.

For when a simple ‘Dude’ just won’t do.

USC scientists figure out how to turn t-shirts into body armor

Researchers at the University of South Carolina have figured out how to combine the carbon component of cotton with boron to create a cotton t-shirt with the toughness of body armor.

One long step closer to the battlesuit that I’m going to need if I ever plan to go out there and FIGHT CRIME!

…pretend that you didn’t read that, OK? One way, or the other.

‘You don’t want any more than that on marble.’

[UPDATE, April 25, 2010]: They made the video private on YT, but you can watch it here.

Trust me, you’ll get it if you watch for long enough.  You want to let it tell its story in its own time*.

My only problem with pointing out Top Gear 10: The Complete Season 10 is that I can’t quite believe that the other episodes can measure up to that clip, which is made up of crystalline awesome suspended in an energetic liquid-dude solution. Really, the only way that they could have improved it was to have a cameo by Iron Man.
