(and I don't mean in my stomach)

Would like to have an animal or two, now.

Miss furry things that move by themselves. =(



Also amusing: Simple Wikipedia (thanks to www.xkcd.com)

Just compare the write-up on quantum mechanics with the one found on the original page:

QM is the part of physics that explains how the electron and other subatomic particles behave. QM also explains how electromagnetic waves such as light behave. QM is a mathematical framework for much of modern physics and chemistry, and helps us understand the smallest things in nature.


Quantum mechanics is a set of principles underlying the most fundamental known description of all physical systems at the microscopic scale (at the atomic level). Notable amongst these principles are both a dual wave-like and particle-like behavior of matter and radiation, and prediction of probabilities in situations where classical physics predicts certainties.
