No stalkers, weirdos, or Martians.|
Also if the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle amuses you, please contact me immediately.
Well I am no stalker or Maritian... and well I could be a wierdo so I can't verify on that one, but I would be much obliged to share views of the nature of man and his powers of belief.

The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle doesn't amuse everyone?
Hard to believe, I know. But I also have friends who think potential energy is a myth. Mortals!
Nicole you are so rude you haven't added me yet wtf *pouts*
Nor do I intend to, regardless of how much you pout.

it's no uncertainty principle, but . . .

Re: it's no uncertainty principle, but . . .
Holy shit, I just saw that, and it is awesome. Thank you.

dp x dx > h / (2 x pi) = Planck's constant / (2 x pi)
mind if i add you? i'm not weird, just looking for some refreshing lj-friends.

Yep, just saw this. Max Planck is the shit.
I don't see what is amusing about the Uncertainty principle - except how people tend to quote it out of context.
Quantum indeterminacy is the most misunderstood subjects in science.
Given that, when i was studying physics, the other students would write "Heisenberg may have been here", on the bathroom walls.
It's 3am out on a stretch of lonely desert road. There's only one car for miles; the guy sitting behind the wheel is absolutely flying down the road clocking in at least 120mph. His windows are down, he's got a bottle of Jack in his lap, and a cigarette in his mouth. There's some music blaring on the radio, but the wind is drowning it out.
A cop on the side of the road sees this car go hurtling by. He flips on the sirens and begins the chase. Luckily the speeder pulls over quickly, but the cop doesn't want to take any chances. As the cop approaches the car he pulls out his gun and begins to circle around toward the window. He yells at the driver to slowly pull out his license and registration and throw it out the window onto the ground.
The driver does so, and the cop grabs the guy's wallet and checks out his license. He says to the driver: "Dr. Heisenberg, do you have any idea how fast you were going?!?" to which the good doctor responds, "No, but I knew exactly where I was."
Wow! Blast from the past! That was quite a while ago :)
I noticed you are in Binghamton communities. I go to BU. Mind if I friend you?
