#2 Nice to know that there are still some areas of scientific research there sensationalism still carries a price.

#4 The neutrino has a small but non-zero mass. Wouldn't the neutrino mass become infinite according to Einstein's theory when the speed of light was achieved?
Is this one of those deals like green energy, global warming, the Volt, etc.

#5 Is the mass of the neutrino a component of "dark matter"?
All this stuff makes me laugh as there are so many truck sized holes in the "theories". Sure the math may hold together but all that means is that there is a mathematical puzzle, kind of like the relationship of the Great pyramid to Pi (an artifact of the way they did measurements).

#6 The neutrino has 3 flavours and alternates "rapidly" between them...
If it travelled at light speed it would have 100% time dilation and therefore it would be impossible to alternate.

#7 As much as I enjoy engaging in public mockery, I'm going to stand up for the CERN guys. They did their experiment, got some *very* interesting results and then PUBLISHED THEIR WORK for open critique. This is exactly how the game is played.
Compare this with Mann and the rest of those global warming grifters who literally said we can't show you our data and methods, you would only try to find something wrong with it.
