Funny conversation about SCIENCE!
I found the following hilarious conversation between a couple of posters in a fic thread...
"As a cosmology/particle physics major, I can actually confirm that quantum physics is, in fact, bullshit space magic. All the complicated equations and long words like "Heisenburg's Uncertainty Principle" are just window-dressing to hide the fact that it's actually bullshit magic that we control with wands and chanting in bad Latin."
"As a person with a masters degree in Physics, I would like to confirm this statement of Aleph's, and actually reveal that Schrödinger's Cat is not - as is publicly claimed - a thought experiment which demonstrates how cats do not act as quantum particles, but is instead a demonstration of practical necromancy usually first shown to second or third year students."
"I'm not supposed to say this, and I'm putting my Bachelor at risk... but wave-particle duality? That's just the way we talk about ghosts. Same with quantum tunneling; what else can go through walls? It only even came up because someone botched a transfiguration from a wave into a particle and it wound up as both. Then it started making spooky noises and rattling the cutlery.
Everything went downhill from there."
"It could be worst. We could all be a bunch of string theorists trying to make the universe work according to neo-hermetic principals, praying that our computer simulations could somehow perform the alchemy necessary to create the philosopher's universe.
But alas, I am a general physics major in the process of specializing into astrophysics. (With some geophysics on the side for the purposes of filthy lucre.)"
"And thus we see scientists as they truly are. Madmen clawing at the walls of reality in order to punch coffee into being without getting up to make it, or ever having to deal with the son of a bitch who took the last cup and did not refill it!"
"Makes me glad I chose to major in
Marketing Practical Evil. Though I guess this explains why my friend the physics professor keeps looking at the world with a maniacal look and lots of alcohol."
