Recently, it came to my attention that a fellow nerd has gone to the trouble of calculating some statistics behind MegaShark's dramatically captured attack on an airplane. Here's a small version of his info-graphic (I encourage you to visit the blog itself as it has additional details):
I'm hoping to start a fairly regular set of postings on Quantum Mechanics and/or other weird science that fascinates me. However, if there's no interest (after all, it's outside the normal scope of all things dagblog), I'll drop it. With that in mind, I thought I'd start with an overview of Quantum Mechanics, talk about how it's really weird, and give my interpretation of it, all without delving into math or jargon. Well, I'll try to at least save any such delving for the comments section.
For those who find QM confusing, I offer up these quotes:
The teacher had no contacts with anyone with Ebola, had no contact with anyone who had contact with an Ebola patient, the teacher only went to Dallas, which apparently is as scary to idiot Americans in Maine as having been to an Ebola ward of Liberia.

Not much is known about it, but according to the website of the NIzhny Novogorod Lazurit design bureau, which claims to have designed it, a prototype underwent government testing in 2008. It is meant to combine the qualities of a speed boat and a submersile and may have been issued to navy special forces in Kaliningrad.
