San Jose Sharks Gameday: Schrödinger's Puck

From a quantum perspective, this was a goal for Marleau. - Jason O. Watson-US PRESSWIRE

What the bleep do we know? We know hockey is doomed.

I've been doing some research into quantum mechanics because of a certain website that has recently become something of an obsession for me. I read a book about quantum mechanics in high school, The Elegant Universe, which I highly recommend for anyone who wants to understand relativity or quantum stuff, but I'm looking to refresh my understanding of the difficult subject. As always, the first stop of my Knowledge Train was Wikipedia, and after a few hours of clicking I ended up re-learning about one of the craziest things ever in science, the double-slit experiment.

Stop giggling, you child, this is important.

Here is a pretty great explanation of the double-slit experiment I found on YouTube:


Amazing stuff, huh?

By the way, this piece of animation is from the movie What the Bleep Do We Know?, which takes interesting scientific facts like this and uses them to justify crazy bonkers spiritual bullshit. I don't recommend watching the movie, but I DO recommend watching this other video featuring Dr. Quantum, in which the good doctor sexually molests a two-dimensional being.

Science is fun and creepy as hell!

So in our world the NHL has just cancelled the Winter Classic, but in this other, possibly-imaginary-but-maybe-not? world the Sharks beat the Avalanche (not the Avalanches, this time) 6-1 and Ryane Clowe got a hat trick.

I think it's pretty obvious which world is superior.

That's all for now. Until next time, have fun shooting your balls into slits!
