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:
There’s a classic case with eyeglasses. You decide you’re going to go shopping for a new pair of eyeglasses, and you go into Lenscrafters. You say, I don’t like the prices here. So you go down the road to a place called Pearl Vision, you say, no, no I’m going to go to a cheaper place. So you go to Target Optical, or maybe Sears Optical, or maybe you go to Macy’s Optical. You go to Sunglass Hut. What you don’t realize, because you’re going to all these different branded stores, is that all these stores are all owned by Luxottica, an Italian eyewear Goliath.
