'You Can't Tell about the speed of light. You've got to go look at it.'

Scientists at CERN are astounded to report that they have recorded neutrinos that travel faster than the speed of light, long thought to be a constant that defined the upper limits possible for speed in the universe....

It brings to mind an old Limerick, author unknown:

There was a young woman named Bright
Whose speed was much faster than light.
She set out one day
In a relative way
And returned on the previous night.
