Why is why women do too.

Was Mr. Fava having a nice Chianti at the time?

Give Dave a break. He's working very hard and very fast to keep some of us gripey bloggers happy.


For the benefit of those of us who wish to discuss THE ACTUAL NEWS ITEM, rather than digressing once again into His Blogness's piggyness (or mine, for that matter):

"A homeless man is on trial in San Mateo County on charges that he smacked a fellow transient in the face with a skateboard as the victim was engaged in a conversation about quantum physics"

Which explains why the MENSA meetings usually have to be held in public parks.

Next week on The Big Bang Theory...

I'll bet it had something to do with the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and quantum teleportation... either that or alcohol was involved.

Classical physicists are such a moody bunch.

I told you that an object in motion will remain in motion until it smacks you upside the head!

Splitting atoms...splitting lips...same diff.

That's the same bloke who threw that bloody apple at me!

I'll bet the discussion had gone beyond mere quantam physics and they were debating the theory of Schroedinger's Cat which is actually about quantam waves. I've heard even Stephen Hawking hates the Schroedinger's Cat theory.
I watch The Big Bang Theory too, Allen.

What cat?

Bean me up, Scottie

Thanks to everyone who did not point out that I misspelled 'quantum'. See how smart I am???

Cindy, it wasn't much of a leap...

When they came out with the concept of "fuzzy logic," this was bound to happen...

Einstein had similar problems with quantum mechanics. Hear he took a chalkboard (no skateboards) to Bohr.
