Neutrinos are the vampires of physics? Watch the 1:25 minute video to find out why.

If the facts go right through your head, you can still groan at these neutrino jokes 🙂

* We don’t allow faster than light neutrinos in here, said the bartender. A neutrino walks into a bar.

* Hipsters liked neutrinos before they arrived.

* After the neutrino incident at CERN, Moody’s downgrades Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity from AAA to AA+.

* “…so you see, Virginia, it’s just that Santa Claus is made of neutrinos.”

* Do neutrinos go faster than light?

Some physicists think that they might.

In the cold light of day,

I am sorry to say,

The story is probably shite.

Any Physics fans out there? If so you will love this short video hat explain what Neutrinos are.

  1. Rewrite this: «We don’t allow faster than light neutrinos in here, said the bartender. A neutrino walks into a bar.» and substitute “neutrinos” with “particles”.

  2. Rajini Rao says:


    Alex Ross , of course it was intentional! I also tried to insult everyone by implying that our heads were comparable to the lead neutrinos can travel through 🙂

  3. Rene Lozada says:


    I wish they had videos like this when I took physics!! 🙂

  4. Andre Kydd says:


    Maybe these neutrinos should be called the “God particle”- blessed are those that believe yet have not seen…..

  5. Sherri Vance says:


    I didn’t quite understand it, but I thought it was really fun. I just subscribed to this guy–thanks for pointing him out!

  6. Rajini Rao says:


    Andre Kydd , you must mean the Higgs Boson. “A Higgs-Boson walks into a church, the priest says “We don’t allow Higgs-Bosons in here.”. The Higgs-Boson says “But without me how can you have mass?” 😀

  7. Andre Kydd says:


    If you think these neutrino jokes are bad, wait until you read the bad photon jokes that are on the way here

  8. Rajini Rao says:


    You mean like this one: “A photon goes to a hotel to find a room.. the man at the desk asks if he would like any help with his bags and the photon says “I don’t have any.. I’m traveling light.”

  9. DaFreak says:


    How bad is it that those higgs and photon jokes caused me to do more than just grin? :’) – The photon one is actually pretty deep because it is travelling light but it’s also travelling light as in it doesn’t have mass so it’s not heavy. 2 in 1!


    What did one photon say to the other photon? – ” Im sick and tired of your interference.”


    A bar walks into a man, oops, wrong frame of reference.

  10. Jay Gischer says:


    Someone please tell me the joke that has this punch line: “And I would have got away with it if not for those meddling Higgs (Bosons)!”

  11. DaFreak says:


    Tehchnicolor theory? No idea but I suck at humor :p


  12. neutrinos says to physics you are neutrino blind

  13. Rajini Rao says:


    Here are a couple more bad ones: Q: What is the difference between a Quantum Theorist and a Beauty Therapist?A: The Quantum Theorist uses Planck’s Constant as a foundation, whereas the Beauty Therapist uses Max Factor.


    Q: What’s the difference between Max Factor and Quantum Theorist?A: Max Factor has models that work.


  14. A real nerd (unlike me) would say that those first two jokes don’t actually work, because they show light (or some other signal) arriving before the neutrino does….


  15. Don’t you need chlorine for neutrino detection?

  16. Rajini Rao says:


    Shah Auckburaully , chlorine is one mechanism of detection..it gets converted to argon by the neutrino bombardment. The video mentioned using the Antarctic ice sheath as a clear body to detect Cherenkov radiation instead.


  17. Any way to concentrate neutrinos yet???


  18. Are they attracted to “their kind” or mirror image kind??


  19. Not Ze Neutrinos so i’m = 1


    3 2 9 2 3 = 1


  20. Why can’t we view nutrinos using radio active metals with VERY short 1/2 lives?


    Can you show me more info on “weak energy”? is gravity weak energy?


  21. QUES: What is the graient that distinguishes weak energy with the energy that keeps an electon of a radioactive element in orbit?


    Can’t we put an isotope in bottom of one of those “big assed” tanks of water we have below ground (where we try to view particles) to SOMEHOW get the decaying isotpe to show some nutrino activity??


  22. I guess what I am asking is:


    Do nutrinos “exist” IN matter, or do they just Come in from SPACE and effect differences in matter? Do electrons JUMP off an isotope or just slow down and FALL off?

  23. Rajini Rao says:


    I’m not a physicist, michael delaney , I’ll find you a good site or video to watch 🙂
