I liked how they introduced her, like "her mother died in an insane asylum thinking she was Queen Victoria" and my thought was, I like where I think this is going. I was not disappointed.

I'd call poptard, but this guy seems smarter than poptard, even if he's just as socially retarded.

Reminds me of... oh shit, what was that guy's name? The one in Seattle? Oh yeah, DK.

Well, so far, he hasn't actually advocated rape as a sacred right of the male, so I'm not willing to make a call yet.  Ch3mist is quite obviously a misogynist1, but DK was on a level all his own.

I think it's a new one, but he can be expressed as a linear combination of a couple of previous ones.

Apparently, we've reached the point where our previous trolls form orthogonal bases that span Trollspace.

There are only so many breeds of troll, I suppose...  And the brighter ones know better than to fuck around here, apparently.

If Luna was a furry, she'd sex humans and scream "BEASTIALITY!" at the top of her lungs at inopportune times.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Either that, or we're experiencing troll emergence.

GrannySmith

To bring this back to quantum mechanics, here's a nice video from sixtysymbols (great science youtube channel!) on the topic of quantum mechanics interpretations.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZacggH9wB7Y
He's sort of complaining that the physicists don't agree, but in the procedure explains a bit what some of these interpretations are. I understood something from it i think, so maybe you like this too.
i wouldn't know which interpretation to choose to be honest, i know way too little about quantum theory, despite the course in quantum computation. it makes sense from a totally formalistic point of view but to apply it to reality.........!

That's strange, it never asks me to download anything when i click to youtube links.... search "Quantum Mechanics (an embarrassment) - Sixty Symbols" on youtube? unless you don't have any flash at all, then i have no idea how you could watch youtube...

Have you looked into the history of the schroedinger's cat story? It's not what you think!

Lot of dead cats in that history.   :sad:

But to be fair, only half as many as there could have been.

That is the most clickbait-y way I've ever heard to break the horrible truth to people.

I love it.
