A Tachyon Incongruity

Can you solve my paradox?

http://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=306234

Good luck, because i can't. The only way it seems it could be answered, is by saying tachyons don't exist, but i love the idea of tachyonic matter, so i am very biased.

Let me see if I understood it?
You are questioning how 'possible' tachyons can be 'entangled' as they don't have any speed limits? One answer might be as entanglement is said to be instantaneous it has nothing to do with 'speed' at all. And the reason that this would be applicable is like Dmitry67 points out. They doesn't transfer 'information'.

Can you please re-state the question here (rather than referring to another site) so that we can see the responses in line with the original question.

Thanks

Chris
