Iluvbeer: This is the sh*t these otherwise incredibly smart people are spending their time on?  Space brains and infinity?  How about focus on this: My frozen enchiladas say to microwave them "8-9 minutes", but after I microwave them for five, the edges as burned.  What cooking time is correct?


It's all about quantum states. Your enchilada exists both in a burned and no burned state at any given time. Observation and microwave radiation collapse reality into the burned state just to piss you off.

The physics approach: "To start with, let's assume your burrito is a sphere..."

Oh right. Teleportation and traversing the universe in seconds is laughably improbable, but people take quantum string theory and Boltzmann brains seriously.

Ishkur:  Just because we can't count to infinity is no reason to stop counting.


That's what they all say.  But the truth is somewhere after the 2.3*10^108th prime number is the passcode that opens opens a non-euclidian geometric portal to Azathoth's alarm clock.

I'm very relieved we're safe from that thing I've never heard of until just now.
