""He did this and was rather startled when he managed to create the long sought after golden Infinite Improbability generator. He was even more startled when just after he was awarded the Galactic Institute's Prize for Extreme Cleverness he…"
"Hey! Welcome to you both! I've known the Nerdfighter community since probably 2008 or 2009, then got swamped with the last of high school studies, then I really got back into Nerdfighteria just this summer, but I think I've gotten a hold…"
"I just wanted to say that the Observer Effect and the Uncertainty Principle are completely two different things. Particles can’t have an exact momentum and an exact position even though we don’t observe them. That’s why we measure…"
"You know thermodynamics is some sort of statistical physics. Statistical physics uses probability and statistics and figures a mathematical model with large population to solve a physical problem. Thermodynamics expresses that entropy of our…"
"Personally I usually think of particles' wave like nature in terms of the Copenhagen interpretation, where the wave associated with every particle is just a representation of its possible positions (I think I may have worded that poorly), but…"
"Speaking of how we don't fully understand the wave particle duality, I recently read a book that included a theory where all particles are effectively little time machines, and being influenced by both the past, present, and future is…"
"I think you got it wrong. The Uncertainty Principle doesn't stem from the famous fact called "The Observer Effect" that you mentioned above.
It's true that particles change their properties (momentum, position) as soon as being…"
"A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the…"
Math and Physics are the awesomest, most pure things in the Universe, and for this they are my favorite things. I also find rock music, entomology, paleontology, Science Fiction, and Forty-Two very awesome.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
2001, A Space Odyssey; The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams; Mythbusters; A Brief History of Time and The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking; Rush, Ozzy, the Foos, Black Sabbath, and other rock bands; Einstein, one of the awesomest nerds in history; And Forty-Two.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
A Yamakah (I can't spell it in English) in Synagogue.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Stephen Hawking, but unfortunately, it doesn't appear that anyone will be doing that anytime soon :(
