Quantum mechanics and foo...

okay foo...



Quantum mechanics = makes no sense.


foo = also, no sense makes.




So... since foo appears to be based on basically the same principle as what ever it is that governs the quantum world, I was hoping that 'maybe' some of you could help to explain wtf is going on with the quantum particles being able to know wtf is going on in the world around them - so that they are able to behave accordingly..


Please to help us sort this out - for those of us who need stuff sorted out. okay, thank you so much.

No quantum mechanics actually makes complete sense. I believe Foo is actually based on chaos theory.

A post on foo is like Schr÷dinger's cat. As long as the post is unread, it is in a superposition of all states ranging from "nonsensical gibberish" to "universal truth".

Once the post is read, the superposition collapses into a definite state -- usually toward the "nonsensical gibberish" end of the spectrum, although everything is possible (if not probable).

I agree. Nothing about quantum mechanics makes complete sense.

Quantam mechanics is God playing a good joke on all the physicists....now you see it, now you don't. Or to name it something a lot of us with kids can understand...peekaboo...peekaboo.

It makes perfect sense.

You know what I want?

A quantum paycheck. You know, one that arrives before you even knew it was coming and you don't have to work for it. That would rawk.
