No fair! Checking whether it is will change the outcome!

I think it might be more fair to say:

The theorem is more robust as a statistical one involving standard deviations of observed batches of particles.

I'm going to bake him a pi.

It would seem that if we know how old he would have been, then we shouldn't be able to determine when his birthday was.

You know, for all the people who biatch about terrible plot devices, why has nobody biatched about that one?

We won't be sure until we open his coffin, though, so we should be ok with saying it is both his birthday, and not his birthday.

By the way, my favorite joke is a Werner Heisenberg joke.

"A cop pulls Werner Heisenberg over for speeding and asks him "Do you know how fast you were going, sir?" Heisenberg replies "No, but I know exactly where I am.""

It was a necessary piece of technobabble that actually made sense for the technology to work, perhaps?

The Nobel Prize for Physics at age 31? Impressive.

And it's the most egregious. Heisenberg Compensator? They may as well have called it a Deus ex Machina Module. Or a Loophole Generator.

We can be certain it's his birthday, we just can't measure his age at the same time.

I drive an old Heisenberg coupe. When I installed a GPS unit in it, the speedometer stopped working.

The followup to my joke goes like this: "The cop said, "You were going 100 miles per hour!" Heisenberg gasped and exclaimed, "Then where the hell am I?"

Well some people struggle with Heisenberg. Look. Here is a toy. It goes up and down on a string. Doesn't that look fun? Why don't you take that into the other room while the adults are doing important research here.

You only posted half of it. :( Why does everyone always forget about energy and time?

I watched Copenhagen last night, so I'm getting kicks out of this thread. Or I might not be...

Step 1: Make this claim that it's his birthday several times per year
Step 2: Yell at anyone who looks it up.

If you didn't want him to know how fast you were going, you should have stayed out of his territory.

It's a show about people who fly in space in their pajamas tackling contrived ethical dilemmas. I never watched it expecting all that much.

Why couldn't Heisenberg have sex with his wife?

When he had the energy, he couldn't find the time, and when he had the time, he couldn't find the energy.

And when he had the position, he couldn't get the momentum.

Oh, they have. It's brought up at least once at every ST convention. "How do the Heisenberg Compensators work?"

Oft-given answer: "Very well, thank you."

Figured I'd get it out of the way as fast as I could and hand the thread over to smart farkers.
