    Monkeys' team slogans are:

    "Never trust atoms; they make everything up."

    "I make horrible science puns but only periodically."

    Interesting that out of the 100's of kids here, it's the homeschool kids that are running around and playing during their breaks. They alternate between board games and running around, playing football, soccer and tag. Other kids are talking and/or on devices.

    We notice that trend over the years.

    My high school daughter is officially a nerd with a similar sense of humor. She'll like those. You'll appreciate that she periodically refers to girls at school of dubious character as having 67 protons.

    We left in the morning. Got back home at freakin' 9:15 pm. Everybody was tired, hungry and cranky by then. Way too long, if you ask me.

    We had to fuel up the brain, so before we got there... dim sum. Here's some of what we had.

    UncleMorgan I eat vegetables. My friends are not vegetables.

    So, why is it that California, South Carolina, Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, Colorado, Montana, Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Florida, Nevada, Arkansas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, North Dakota, and Maryland are the only states listed in the Periodic Table?

    Does this mean that there are states out there that have not yet been discovered?

    I have often thought that the Schrödinger's Cat experiment rather conclusively proved the Multi-Universe Theory, because if the cat is observed continuously from Time Zero until after the poison gas is randomly released, the cat will have been clearly observed to have existed in three completely separate Universes. The one where the cat is not dead, the one where the cat is dead, and the one where the cat is both dead and not dead.
    Accordingly, it is Time alone that separates the infinite multitude of Universes, and if the observer watches long enough he will see every possible action in every possible universe.

    Science are fun!

    If the watcher watches long enough, there is another state, where the watcher dies.

    I too had to consult the periodic table. Pretty funny when you do.

    Suppose I could have provided a link to one so others can get the joke. Here, look up the element with atomic number 67:
    Periodic Table of Elements: Los Alamos National Laboratory
    Click on the atomic symbol (the two letter name) if you want to read more about the element.

    But consider Heisenberg's uncertainly principle... The very act of observation can affect what is being observed a very small amount such there is always a tiny uncertainty in what is being measured or observed. So how can he observe both the affected states and the unaffected states to see every possible action (even if he were immortal, Kell)?

    Isn't philosophy tainted by science fun!

    He can not. He can observe two states, but not the unobserved state.;)
