Especially if you actually *read* the actual journal article rather than the
pop-sci interpretation of it, it basically says "our experiment had the
neutrinos showing up 60ns faster than lightspeed - we can't find what we did
wrong, does anybody else see what we screwed up?" - i.e. an appeal to "with
enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow". (Personally, I'm betting on a mascon
somewhere in northern Italy distorting the actual path taken so the actual
geodesic isn't what they thought it was..)
