Calling Shenanigans on the whole neutrino buzz

So some scientists shoot some thingies called neutrinos, and receive them at the other side. They calculated the neutrino speed to be .0025 faster than the speed of light. I call shenanigans. Maybe they forgot to account for earth's rotation, or the movement of the solar system trough space, or the sensors are not accurate enough.

Shenanigans!

Look if the galaxy is moving at 1.3 million mph roughly, therefore I average about 18mph faster then the galaxy when I ride.

Ruben, you are trying to think again.

Stop it.

Well, how do you account for all the other particles being measured at their normal speeds?

What do neutrinos have to do with a children's game show from the '60s?

He's right, though. I bet they haven't dusted the lens on their speedometer.
