You can also leave the ladder always up too...that way you don't have to drag it out to put the Christmas lights up and then take them down a few weeks later.

That's exactly why I have several ladders!

You ever forget where you left the ladder?

I have remained uncertain about most things ever since!


See, that's exactly what I was trying to avoid. This is why I always put a dead cat in the box. That way I know for sure. That would have made life a lot simpler for Schrodinger. No imaginary numbers for me!

Well, I've never seen the cat come back to life. That's not absolute evidence, but it's better than p < 0.05.

I figure God could resurrect the cat just once, if he cared to make me believe. This reminds me of the Catholic Priest and the Evangelical preacher who were discussing what they do with their collection plates. The Priest says:

"10% of the money goes to our mission to feed the homeless".

The Evangelical says:

"I let God decide. I throw all the money up in the air, and ask God to take what he wants."

Aint that the truth, adding to increasing uncertainty!

A Rebel Physicist has elegant solution to Alternate Quantum Mystery

Quote:
But in Dragans main job as a physicist at the University of Warsaw in Poland, railing against conformity is not always appreciated. Particularly when those ideas might rock the two pillars that form our fundamental understanding of the world: general relativity and quantum mechanics.


These theories are the crowning achievements of modern physics, describing nature exquisitely, but separately. General relativity handles the big familiar objects and events of the universe, while quantum mechanics covers the invisible and strange micro-world that surrounds us, where subatomic particles can tunnel through barriers they have no business getting past, or where two particles thousands of light-years apart can instantaneously respond to each other's motions.

Most of the time, this setup works well. If youre looking at how a massive stars gravity bends light, you whip out your general relativity textbook. And if you want to understand how electrons move through a computer chip, youll need your trusty quantum physics hardback by your side. But there are times when a bit of both is called for. Trying to understand what happened in the very first moments of the Big Bang or what goes on in the heart of black holes, for instance.

In these situations, a glaring problem comes into focus: general relativity and quantum mechanics appear to be completely incompatible. The smooth, continuous universe general relativity describes conflicts with the discrete, chunky one of quantum physics. When you bring their equations together you get nonsense.
