    I have the paranormal ability to forget stuff that I know. I could prove it if I could remember what we were talking about. The comments to your article remind me how hard it is to converse with some people. I know some truly bright people who still fall for "ghosts, curses, and jesus' picture on toast" bullshit. My nose is flat from all the face palm.

    Don't you just love when the one piece of evidence is that uncertainty exists?

    In the absence of uncertainty, Science becomes meaningless.

    ...which reminds me, I must buy his book (and I mean that).

    By the way, that first bloke looked like Dubya. So, now we know what he's doing.

    Great article, I did sadly spend ten minutes reading the comments though. That wave function guy needs to stop fingering the virgin orifice that is quantum physics, the poor things been fucked for too long by too many idiots.

    I like that they speak of the uncertainty principle in quantum mechanics. As far as I know, the mechanics dudes treat uncertainty probabilistically, and save the hand-wringing ontological stuff for...well...philosopher-types like me.
