I listen to Quirks and Quarks on CBC on Saturdays while eating lunch. The host, Bob MacDonald, always makes me feel so smart because I can understand when he talks about subjects which my feeble little mammal brain cannot normally grasp. And then I realise that all the credit belongs to him and his ability to explain complex subjects to laypeople like me.
And I love it when he discusses quantum physics because as he is explaining things like current research into allowing larger and larger quantum particles to be isolated from other particles, thereby potentially allowing these quantum particles to capitalise on their ability to be two places at the same time, it all makes sense. We'll be teleporting before you know it!
And then the show ends and I am once again as dumb as a post.
A Happy Father's Day tomorrow to all the dads in the world. I hope you enjoy that big-assed steak or that fishing rod or crappy tie or whatever other token of gratitude you receive from your family.
You deserve it!
