*** My point is he’s not on a par with Einstein, as some would have us believe. ***

Oh I agree. You're 100% correct on that.

But I've even read articles by some today's 'geniuses' where they diss Einstein too. Just because he didn't buy into Quantum Mechanics and they mock his 'God doesn't play dice' remark.

Speaking of 'old' Al ;-) I read an article from Sunday (a link from Slate) that those Italian Physicists did have a slight glitch with their Neutrino Experiment and it didn't go faster than 'C' as they claimed. Seems there was a teeny calibration problem with their equipment.

So Einstein still rules, 'C' is still 'The Law', and E=mc2 is correct.

I’m not sure I buy that bit about a faulty cable.

The word was that they had met with and revealed the experiemental results they had with other labs, and arranged to perform similar tests six months prior to their announcement. As many as six labs got similar results prior to the announcement.

Why they’d want to backtrack at this point is beyond me, but there are all kinds of promising experimental results that go ‘poof’ pretty shortly after they are announced.

BYU had created a standard carbureator that enabled 80 MPG on the highway. Patent got purchased by one of the big three and that was the end of it.
