Sunday Caption Contest - Quantum Bailout Edition

Tyler Durden's picture


We have heard of the Schrödinger Greek bailout, Schrödinger's CDS trigger, and even the Schrödinger US economy (whose depends on whether the BLS' BS collapses under its own weight, or not). Now, here is a stock photo of Schrödinger Schauble, who in addition to bashing the Greek bailout and praising it at the same time, has an Eigenwolfgang wave-particle duality even after his "uncertainty" has been fully observed and thus collapsed. Either that, or that is one damn fast wheelchair (loaded up with Greek gold no doubt).

Your bailout does not bend, because it is just that, a bailout.  Mine bends because there is no bailout, just my mind.

Link yourself to the bailout.  Become the bailout and bend yourself.

"In the Copenhagen interpretation, a system stops being a superposition of states and becomes either one or the other when an observation takes place."


Goes to prove the world observer has no conscience.

You may be a science geek if you're afraid to look at someone lest you make their wave function collapse.

You may be a science geek if the SPCA is mad at you for actually trying the Schrodinger's cat experiment.

You may be a science geek if you even understood the first two examples.

Clearly, constraint of state is the effect the observer has on the observed; but what of the effect of observing on the observer??

The wheel is turning and you can't slow down,
You can't let go and you can't hold on,
You can't go back and you can't stand still!
If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will!

Two engineering students meet each other on campus in between lectures. One of them turns up on a shiny new bike. The other student asks him, "When did you get that bike?"
The other student replies, "Well the other day I was just walking to my next lecture, when a beautiful woman came rushing to me on her bike, threw it down, took all her clothes off and said 'Take what you want!'"
His fellow student nodded, replying, "Ah yes, the clothes probably wouldn't have fit."

A priest, a doctor, and an engineer are playing a round of golf behind a particularly slow group of golfers. Becoming quite angry and frustrated, they call the ranger over.
The doctor asks, "What the hell is with these guys? They're the slowest golfers I've ever seen!"
The ranger replies, "Oh, they're a group of blind firefighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year. As thanks, we let them play for free anytime."
The three golfers fall silent for a moment.
The priest says, "That's very sad. I will say an extra blessing for them at mass tonight."
The doctor adds, "I have a good buddy who's an ophthalmologist. I'll ask if he can do anything for them."
The engineer asks, "Why can't they play at night?"

I was having very many laughings when I was hearing the speaking of those stories very many years ago.  Less very many years ago when I was hearing them again I was having not very many laughings.  The peoples who were hearing them with me not very many years ago were having eyes that were turning to the tops of the holes in their faces where their eyes were being because they were hearing them already many times.  I can not tell if very many peoples here are having laughing at your stories but I am having laughings at something that is not the same as the thing that was making me have laughings many years ago.  Are you having any more stories that are laughing stories because they are having freshness?

You must have relax, you must try unwind!
Breath in, blow out.
When the hearing sound you fear give impact to the nerve,
It not necessary to run around
the Scream, just sit down.  Have breath, relax!

Kadir beneath Mo Moteh.Shaka, when the walls fell.Temba, his arms wide.Mirab, his sails unfurled.Sokath - his eyes uncovered. Kailash, when it rises.The river Temarc - in winter.Rai and Jiri at Lungha. Kiazi's children - their faces wet. Zinda - his face black, his eyes red. Chenza at court - the court of silence.Uzani - his army with fist open. His army with fist closed.

You can't actually see the bailout because it doesn't actually exist.

Theory: Digidollars/ digi-euros can behave like a particle or wave function. As mfglobal showed it can disappear once observed, without even a trace. More proof is coming, soon.
