I'm a pseudo geek
This is the time of year when we are on the look out for creative and/or geeky tee shirts to start the new school year. The young ward is not much into designer clothing, bless him, and so it has become a tradition for me to locate interesting tee shirts, something for which, I'm slightly proud to say, he has come to be locally famous (where locally famous means his two friends). This time I sprung for one for me, pictured above. I apologize for the wrinkles, it was just out of the packaging.
I expect to be distracted by stimulating conversations with informed strangers while wearing this.
PS: Did you know when Erwin Schrodinger came up with the idea, he wasn't trying to explain something to some stupid undergrad -- he was trying to mock the idea. It's pretty obvious once you realize that the original writing of the example started with, "One can even set up quite ridiculous cases. A cat is penned up in a steel chamber ..."
More on that here
