[time-nuts] Fast than light neutrino

I'm old enough to not pay much attention to these 'scientific breakthroughs'
announced across the sports or comics page. Remember cold fusion?
Often a 'scientist' gets drunk and spills out nonsense to a reporter barely
catching up with the spelling of the buzzwords, and suddenly the Earth isn't
flat anymore...
I put $20 on 3 >= 1 > 2, same as Poul, without having read the article.

I think we all want these neutrinos to be faster than C (not just
faster then photons) because it would be fun to live through a
revolution in physics.    A simple mis-calculation would be so boring.
 If I had to bet I'd bet on the boring error that was missed by 100
co-authors.     I'd be happy to loose my bet.

Can we assume for a minute the result is correct and they really are
literally faster than C.    What does it mean to be faster than C at
this large macroscopic scale of kilometers

Fun to guess.  Time must be running backwards.  Or maybe they have
negative mass.   If truly faster than C, SOMETHING nonsensical must be
