As if Nerds Around the World aren't Boggled Enough...

4th edition D&D and warp drive in the same week?!?

A pair of German physicists claim to have broken the speed of light - an achievement that would undermine our entire understanding of space and time.

I'm not an expert in this type of thing, but it looks like they didn't really break the speed of light, but took a short-cut by tunneling through space-time. Which is just as good, honestly, and might avoid a lot of the relativistic issues that come with moving at or near or faster than the speed of light.

So who's for holding the 2012 GenCon on Alpha Centauri Prime?
