Depending on what country you are in, the fluorescents will cycle either at 50 Hz or 60 Hz. Depending on when you catch the wave, you could potentially shoot at 1/100th or 1/120th and be okay.

I believe this statemente is wrong. Shooting at twice the speed of the light's frequency you will most likely "hit" the blackout between each light pulse. It you shoot at half the speed/frequency of the light source, will guarantee you will get at least one full pulse from the light source.

Think of it as flash sync speed. If you shoot at higher sync speed, you will get curtain blackout in some section. It shooting at sync speed or lower, you will always get the full burst and full frame. The issue here is that there is no possible way to sync the fluorescent lights with your shutter. If for some reason you get a properly exposed shot with fluorescent light at 1/100 sec or higher, then you can be sure it was an accident.
