IT'S A SHAME THERE ISN'T A WORD FOR THAT

OH, I KNOW
WE CAN JUST ADOPT SCHRÖDINGER'S CHILD-COOKER INTO THE COMMON LEXICON

THAT WON'T MUDDY UP THE WATERS AT ALL

I'M SURE WORDS MADE UP TO DESCRIBE THE POTENTIAL PRESENCE OF SOME STRONGLY NEGATIVE TRAIT WON'T BE COMMONLY MISUSED OR MISINTERPRETED, OR COME TO OVERSHADOW THE THOUGHT EXPERIMENTS THAT THOSE WORDS ARE BASED ON

YOU TAKE THREE PEOPLE, ONE OF WHOM HAS MAN-HANDS, AND PUT THEM IN A BOX WITH HAND-GUILLOTINES - ONE HAND-GUILLOTINE FOR EACH PERSON

WIRE EACH GUILLOTINE TO A GEIGER COUNTER
THE FIRST GEIGER COUNTER TO CLICK A CERTAIN NUMBER OF TIMES RELEASES ITS GUILLOTINE, DROPPING A PAIR OF HANDS INTO A TRAY, AND LOCKS THE OTHER GUILLOTINES IN PLACE

IF YOU HAVEN'T LOOKED IN EITHER THE TRAY NOR THE BOX YET, HAS THE WAVEFORM OF THE HANDS IN THE TRAY COLLAPSED OR NOT

IS REALITY ITSELF UNCERTAIN ABOUT WHETHER THE HANDS IN THE TRAY ARE MAN-HANDS, OR IS THE 1/3 PROBABILITY OF MAN-HANDS MERELY A FEATURE OF YOUR MENTAL MODEL OF THE WORLD

TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE ABUSING SCHRÖDINGER REMINDS ME OF THE ONE TIME MY ENGLISH TEACHER SHOWED A FILM PROMOTING QUANTUM MYSTICISM IN CLASS

YES, I WAS IN AN ENGLISH CLASS AROUND THE TIME What tнē #$*! D̄ө ωΣ (k)πow!? WAS POPULAR

NO ONE IN THE CLASS RAISED ANY OBJECTIONS TO IT, EVEN WHEN WE HAD TO GIVE A PRESENTATION ON AN ARBITRARY RELATED TOPIC

SHE ALSO TAUGHT US THE WATCHMAKER ARGUMENT

I HAVE TO WONDER IF SHE WAS ACTIVELY TRYING TO MAKE US STUPIDER, AND WHY SHE DIDN'T LEAVE THE SCIENCE TO THE RELATIVELY COMPETENT STAFF IN THE SCIENCE DEPARTMENT, ALTHOUGH I LIKE TO ENTERTAIN THE ALTERNATIVE THAT WE WERE THE SUBJECTS OF SOME KIND OF CASE STUDY THAT NO ONE EVER TOLD US ABOUT

Joan was quizzical, studied pataphysical science in the home...

Lock your caps on and cap the locks, lads! We'll give them one last volley o' shot before we see their lower case show in our post!

I DON'T HAVE A CAPS LOCK BUTTON, THOUGH

I HAVE TO TAKE MY FINGER OFF OF THE SHIFT KEY IN ORDER TO TYPE AN APOSTROPHE


DO YOU NOT APPRECIATE THE EXtRA EFFORT THAT I'M PUTTING IN HERE

I WORKED OUT A WAY TO ENGAGE CAPS LOCK

I HAVE TO PRESS CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+BACK THEN PRESS ALT+SEARCH THEN PRESS CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+FORWARD

woo it worked
holding down the shift key does this now

I think I have to log out in order to unengage it, though

No, you mustn't tell me that. I was all proud of my subtle allusion to caps lock disguised as a rallying cry directed towards percussion lock musketeers.

I refuse to observe those words. Maybe they don't actually exist, and you instead posted something like "Istancow, you're so clever with your subtle allusions and your witty and appropriate references". That sounds much better.

Curse you and your shift key!

I hold you in high regards regardless of the presence or absence of a caps lock key on my keyboard.

Poor Istancow. I think maybe if you mix up your crushed dreams into some warm water, yeast and sugar, they will rise again!
