    From a recent camera lens advertisement:

    "Extraordinary optical performance
    The [redacted] 15mm f/2.4 meets the most demanding requirements of modern cameras. Thanks to sophisticated optical construction and special neutrino coating, colour aberration, ghosting and flare effects have been reduced to the absolute minimum, so the lens is ready to meet the requirements of the 50+ megapixel sensors of the newest cameras."

    Hmmmmm....

    I keep my neutrino coat in the closet.

    It isn't even a lie. Those folks are basically everywhere ... Just caught one here. He thought I wouldn't recognize as he turned from ##\nu_\mu## to ##\nu_e##. But not with me!

    Could you read the fine print? Did it say "Manufactured at Batavia (IL)"?

    Is it powered by charged or neutral currents?

    Could it just be a typo? I wonder what word would fit in its place?
    Banana?

    Word of the moment?? Like everything was 'Atomic', when I was younger. I remember once buying an "atomic' garden trowel.
    I had a mate who flew for BOAC to Africa regularly. Anything really really good was advertised as 'VC10' on market stalls.

    However, they missed the trend. Nowadays everything is genetic.

    You don't run into. That's your skin, dude! Have you never wondered where you got this terrible sunburn from, each time you wore it?
    The neutrino jacket is probably a lot safer! If you can find it ....

    IMO, the trade name Tesla is a real liberty! It's like calling a car The Millennium Falcon - shooting (customer) fish in a barrel.
    But I have to acknowledge the Tesla is a tasty piece of kit.
