186,000 Miles Per Second: Not Just a Good Idea, it's the Law

German scientists are claiming they've transmitted information faster than the speed of light. Yup, you guessed it, quantum tunneling strikes again. I had a feeling that, since (I think) quantum mechanics doesn't specifically forbid transmitting information this way, someone some day would figure out how, general relativity bedamned. If this holds up, and there's definitely no guarantee of that, it could change everything.

You see, one possible reason why it's so quiet out there is we're not listening to the right channels. This could lead to us turning on the radio.

Just read a comment about this the seems to indicate the speed of light hasn't been breached - it's that the distance between the two points was shortened via the tunnelling.

That would make sense because I can picture it in my mind.

The actual reality of what's happening, however, would make my mind asplode like jello packed around an M80.

Which gives me an idea...
