Schrödinger's Duck

It makes perfect sense why a Search for Schrodinger's Cat may have proved useless. They were barking up the wrong species.

Mystery: SOLVED

And I do believe that they nicked the term 'quark', wholeheartedly from James Joyce's "Finnegan's Wake", which makes this all the more enjoyable! Ahhh, quantum.

TimT said...

Ah, a purrfect suggestion Maria.

And excellent, Herr Kingsley. You are as sagacious as you are literate. I shall probably never get so far into Finnegan's Wake to find that reference, but I'm told it is in there...

Our of a population of 19 million, how many people do you suppose actually understood that?

I'm tipping just the people who've commented.

TimT said...

Don't include me in that count - I often say what I mean, but I don't ever claim to know what I mean.

Caz said...

How would have understood?

Out of the 19 million who read Tim's blog: all of those who went at least as far as 5th grade primary school, would be my guess.

19 million?

Where did the other two million go?

Why haven't I read about it in the papers?

Why isn't there a little alert at the end of "Without a Trace", with a picture of the two million missing Australian's that we should be looking out for, and notifying the authorities if we find them?

Was it the Rudd Rapture? Yet, that would make no sense: far too many "left behind".

Caz said...

... should have been "how many would have understood" ...

While we're talking ducks, check out this fellow.

TimT said...

Excellent quacker, Alexis!

If it's only the people who comment who get the joke here, then I notice that the number is growing every day. Now all we need as confirmation is another 19 million or so comments...

Keri said...

Caz, I ate them for being pedantic.

I know two million might seem excessive, but when you've had a big night, you do wake up with an appetite, don't you?

TimT said...

... but when you've had a big night, you do wake up with an appetite, don't you?

Yeah, I 'ate that too, and no haspiration can hexpress 'ow Hi feel.

Time to take up 'aruspication and give the haspiration game haway.
