Turnin' and Burnin'

I'm mired in about 16 different "TOP PRIORITY" projects at the moment. So I'm going to be cranking work stuff out instead of the pithy bullsh*t this site usually delivers.

In the meantime, I want you all to read this mind-blowing piece from The New York Times Science section on the mysteries and magic of the quantum theory. Here's a tease

Nary a week goes by that does not bring news of another feat of quantum trickery once only dreamed of in thought experiments: particles (or at least all their properties) being teleported across the room in a microscopic version of Star Trek beaming; electrical "cat" currents that circle a loop in opposite directions at the same time; more and more particles farther and farther apart bound together in Einstein's spooky embrace now known as "entanglement."

Oh boy oh boy, is that good!

There'll be a short quiz given later, so pay attention!

Had I known, I would have gotten you an ashtray for Christmas.
