Schrodinger's President

On November eight I went to bed not knowing who was elected President of the USA. So when I woke up, after coffee and a shower, and went down to turn on my computer I knew that within my computer was contained two possibilities. Hilary Clinton could be the next President, or Donald Trump could be the next President. For that moment both were true at the same time. This is quantum mechanics.

Of course, when I opened the box, the cat was dead.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
