questions, questions, questions?

gurple: A mix of green and purple using an impressionist pointalist technique a la Monet so the color changes back and forth between green and purple depending on distance and lighting.

...are you really either on the bus or off the bus ? Can it be that something so important allows only for binary solutions ?

There is only one thing with a binary solution set. Alive or dead (Existence vs nonexistence is the same binary set worded differently, as is pregnant or not pregnant)

Succinctly worded: To be or not to be......

The only exception is Schrodinger's cat. That cat is both dead and alive simultaneously until it is observed and then the p wave collapses to singularity.

So you can tell if the liquid hydrogen is getting hot enough to outgas and create a fire hazard if you are planning on hosting a cryogenic temperature evolved alien for a pool party.

Into the middle of an ear of corn so you can roast the corn on a grill and then eat it as finger food. After that, they serve outhouse duty as a biodegradable bum cleaner that also takes care of those itchy rhoids....

What's the deal with backsplashes? Whose culinary efforts are that vigorous that they're flinging sauces and cookie dough with such trajectory?

The only exception is Schrodinger's cat. That cat is both dead and alive simultaneously until it is observed and then the p wave collapses to singularity.

...if this is, indeed, the case (and I have no reason to argue that it is not), then it seems to me
that our popular idea that the wheels on the bus go 'round and 'round ought not to be true given
a universe thought to be expanding from a singularity in all directions at the same, or similar speeds.

I mean, i can see where it might appear so to an observer fixed in space and time, but otherwise,
given the relativistic nature of the phenomenon "going 'round and 'round", it makes no sense.


If that is so, what does this say about the people on the bus ? Are they really going up and down ?
Which direction is up ?

And the horn on the bus...is it really going beep, beep, beep ? Or does the relative motion of the bus
and the observer modulate the tone due to the distortion effect on the sound waves ?

The wipers, the signals, the motor..............it just all seems a huge lie in quantum terms.

Is there a protocol for how you take your meds that will create the greatest recreational effect? If so, can you remember it? If so, can you share it?
