Does anybody else wish Heisenberg would just make up his mind?

I mean, really! :-)

He and Schrödinger ought to hang out.

Still, I can sympathize. I take ages deciding what I want at restaurants, bookstores, and, really, anything else.

Oh, I don’t know. Really.

What can you do? Uncertainty was a matter of principle for the man.

But I understand your frustration. I would like to see Game Theorists stop playing around and do some work for a change! :-)

hrm….. Is it bad Pollos was the first thing to come to my mind after I read Heisenberg in the title of this Q?

Perhaps he did, but it has gone unobserved?

I don’t get it.

Heisenberg is out for a drive when he’s stopped by a traffic cop.
The cop says, “Do you know how fast you were going?”
Heisenberg says, “No, but I know exactly where I am.”

@Blackberry: Here you go.

And when I first read the Q, I clicked on, eagerly anticipating a good discussion with fans of the OTHER Heisenberg. After all, it’s a new episode each Sun. nt.

(If you’ve never watched the series, my comment won’t make much sense to you.)

@satunnainen

I’m assuming you’re referring to Los Pollos Hermanos ? That could only be a good thing :)

Great minds, and all that…

@Blackberry This thread references the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, which states:

In quantum mechanics, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle states a fundamental limit on the accuracy with which certain pairs of physical properties of a particle, such as position and momentum, cannot be simultaneously known. In other words, the more precisely one property is measured, the less precisely the other can be controlled, determined, or known.
-Wiki

It is frequently rendered as an inability to know both the place and speed of a particle.

OK, this wins the Cutest Question Award. Unless it doesn’t.

Mariah's avatar

@Rarebear and @nikipedia both made me laugh out loud. Maybe if I looked at my speedometer less often I wouldn’t get lost all the time.

Why don’t we ask Schroedinger’s cat?

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

I thought that’s what I read and was like ‘is he joking?’ :)~

ratboy's avatar

Godel convinced him that the matter is undecidable.

Strauss's avatar

I wonder if Schrödinger’s cat has an answer to this question…

downtide's avatar

I just can’t decide.

@Yetanotheruser Schrödinger’s cat has been been playing around with String Theory lately. Can’t get enough of it. Thinks it’s way better than yarn even. Makes him crazy. :-)
