Speed of light

Apparently, scientists have now decided that they may have managed to accelerate particles to a speed that exceeds the speed of light – something that dear old Einstein stated was impossible according to the laws of physics.

Now, not wishing to embarrass the eminent scientists around the world, and especially not at that august institution known as CERN, where it all seems to have originated, so I will refrain from commenting on the subject directly, but will merely quote an appropriate little ditty…

There was a young lady named Bright
who could travel much faster than light
She went out one day, in a relative way
and came back the previous night
