…..AGES ago. It was down behind the sofa cushion with the remote control, 3 socks and a glove that none of us recognises. I could have saved them the bother of building the big possible black hole causing thingum machine.
|Sofas govern their own laws of physics meaning stuff can vanish and reappear at will.|
It is an irrefutable law of sofa physics that everything you can’t find is down the back of the sofa cushions. But not the first time you look, no, it’s not there then. It might not be there the second time you look either, sometimes the missing item only blinks back into existence when someone else looks there.
What the Cerne scientists should have done is get their mums to look for the elusive particle. Mums have special looking powers, they’d have found it without half as much bother.
|I am thinking that green would look nice in the hall.|
Daftness aside, I am genuinely fascinated in what they are doing, and in quantum physics in general. The only downside is that I DON’T UNDERSTAND A SINGLE JOT OF IT. But I wish I did. Sometimes I think I have grasped a minor point for whole seconds, and then I think it through and it has disappeared in a puff of unfathomability. But I seem to recall that there are particles that can pop in and out of existence, or be in two places at once or something vaguely resembling that , so perhaps for most of us the understanding of quantum mechanics very much resembles those particles. It exists, but only very briefly, making it very hard to prove. I am going to ask my mum if she has seen my comprehension of string theory down the back of the sofa.
|I actually want this.|
