Quantum Step? wait.. what?
 
2008-11-17 02:30:01 PM  
Well somebody had better look at it and find out.

Only MC Skat Kat knows for sure.

Oh boy.

Golf clap on the headline, subby.

I could barely understand that article yet it still fascinates me.
 
2008-11-17 03:22:18 PM  
Come on, Dr. Heisenberg, make up your mind!
 
2008-11-17 03:23:12 PM  
Bloody quantum.

YOU FOOL, YOU CHANGED THE OUTCOME BY OBSERVING IT!

You Quantum Step forward,
You Quantum Leap ah-back.
You Quantum Step forward,
locus calculated out.
You Heisenbergy Pokey, with unknown speed move around.
That's what it's all about.

was it a step or a leap?

/got nothing

maxximillian: was it a step or a leap?

/got nothing


It's just a quantum jump to the left....

Ah, there we go:

Schroedinger's cat meets quantum computing?

Abstract, and full article if you have a subscription. If not, try the preprint.

Charmed, I'm sure.

I submitted this with a better headline 2 days from now.

Mayhem of the Black Underclass: You Quantum Step forward,
You Quantum Leap ah-back.
You Quantum Step forward,
locus calculated out.
You Heisenbergy Pokey, with unknown speed move around.
That's what it's all about.


You ain't right in the head.
/Very funny though.

Get back to me when they have figured out Quantum mechanics, until then...

I'm not seeing this so it's has already happened both ways.

FuturePastNow: Well somebody had better look at it and find out.

I see bias in this article. The author's spin is obvious.

// I'm so sorry

Sure it's not -1?

Alright, I demand a quote pyramid of quantum mechanics puns now.
 
2008-11-17 04:23:57 PM  
not a step in one (or many) of 6 other directions?
 
2008-11-17 04:24:29 PM  
I really struggled understanding the article, because I'm just not that smart.
If it means some day we'll have more porn at a quicker rate, then I say "Good luck, we're all counting on you".

Sorry. My quote pyramid is in the shop, being worked on by the quantum mechanic.

It brings us 1 step closer to ultraporn.

Nothing bohrs me like Quantum puns bohr me.

MisterBill: Nothing bohrs me like Quantum puns bohr me.


Charming.

/although there was some strangeness in how you spelled "bohrs"
 
2008-11-17 04:51:47 PM  
So will this make my porn faster,stonger,better?

Your model of elementary humor is a sure gas.

Spin it any way you like.

I loved that show!

Quantum porn? No thanks.

And, it's time to bring out my one physics joke:

Heisenberg gets pulled over. The cop asks, "Do you have any idea how fast you were going?"

Heisenberg replies, "No! But, I know *exactly* where I am."
 
2008-11-17 09:08:50 PM  
I'd have to see it to believe it, or not, maybe.

Nice job, subby.

MrShinra: YOU FOOL, YOU CHANGED THE OUTCOME BY OBSERVING IT!


I always liked that moment in Futurama.
