Oh man, if this post is true, just think about how much this could change the internet.

Its a reference to the Observer effect,

I thought the joke was about how sports fans bitch even when they're proven undoubtedly wrong.
I am not very smart.

Could you translate this into Layman's terms for me?
My excuse for no understanding what the **** this wikipage says is the fact that I'm a zoologist.
User avatar #63 to #55 - MrMouz (06/14/2013) [-]
It means you have to change something to understand it. Like the article says, to check the pressure of a car tire, you have to let some air out, changing the pressure. It's a change so we can understand.
User avatar #6 to #1 - luthervonappledorf (06/14/2013) [-]
If I'm not mistaken it is also related to The Hawthorne Effect. They seem extremely similar in the sense that in The Hawthorne Effect, the observer has an impact on any event purely because he is observing it. This was tested in a factory when the workers were told that someone would be observing them and their efficiency improved dramatically but when they were told that the observer had gone their performance deteriorated again.
User avatar #10 to #6 - redtooth (06/14/2013) [-]
Yeah but the horses weren't exactly aware that they were being observed any more than usual, were they?
#13 to #1 - anon (06/14/2013) [-]
I understood it by Phineas and Ferb as one time Ferb said the mere observation changes the outcome...But your point is good too.

I did my science fair on it.

I thought it actually had something to do with Heisenberg's uncertainty principle
User avatar #9 to #8 - redtooth (06/14/2013) [-]
Second this, I also remember that this had to do with Heisenberg's uncertainty principle
User avatar #14 to #9 - baaltomekk (06/14/2013) [-]
No it's not the uncertainty principle, because the uncertainty principle only effects scenarios where you are messuring two physical propertys of an object at the same time. Here, they only meassure one property, so it won't be affected by the uncertainty principle.
User avatar #102 to #14 - clockworkphysicist (06/14/2013) [-]
Yeah isn't it "The more accurate you know the position, the less likely you will know the velocity'?
User avatar #137 to #102 - baaltomekk (06/14/2013) [-]
That's one example for it. It works with any two physical properties

I heard that one of the writers of Futurama had an advanced degree in mathematics, and actually created an entire math theorem just to realistically explain a plot point in an episode.
#56 to #18 - fistpump (06/14/2013) [-]
In the special features on one of the DVDs for the four feature-length Futurama episodes, there is a 15-20 minute math lecture that just talks about and explains some of the mathematics in the show. I didn't understand any of it. But it was pretty neat how they did that.
#115 to #18 - clockworkphysicist (06/14/2013) [-]
Gee, did you just so happen to hear it from the content about it yesterday?
#24 to #18 - lankyman (06/14/2013) [-]
Yeah, 'The Prisoner of Benda', you only the see the full theorem for a second before its put in action. Best episode of that series (6th season), full of sci-fi shenanigans.

Basically nothing and everything exists all at the same time until something observes it. Is the cat dead or alive? Both, until you open the box to find out.
User avatar #77 to #42 - golemnardah (06/14/2013) [-]
You missed the point of Schrodinger's cat. The cat is both dead AND alive until further observed.

That's... exactly what I said in different words.
User avatar #47 to #42 - thebritishguy (06/14/2013) [-]
not this time Jesus, the cat is either dead or alive anyway, besides the cat is an observer also. is this not true?

In quantum physics the very act of observing causes electrons to act differently. Watch this link for a full explanation.

Except that's completely wrong in every way. Theories are logical "guesses" that while there is some evidence that they may be true, they are still not proven. A scientific law is what's proven.
User avatar #76 to #72 - golemnardah (06/14/2013) [-]
Most of science is a theory.

A lot of it is a fact.
User avatar #139 to #78 - MRfunnyFACE (06/15/2013) [-]
except for natural laws, such as gravity, all of science is a theory.

Thats why when people disregard evolution saying, "oh but its just a theory," they are not really making a valid argument.
User avatar #132 to #78 - fitemeirl (06/14/2013) [-]
no because whenever we think we know what's going on some smartass comes around (like Einstein or newton) and proves everyone wrong. that's why we call it theories. theories are tested and proven hypotheses, they stand true until someone comes along and disproves them.
User avatar #95 to #49 - thebritishguy (06/14/2013) [-]
WHAT?! that's against the rules, electrons have got to follow the rules, they can't just disobey the rules, what the **** is happening? this is a joke, what? jesus ******* christ man, I need to start smoking tea

How do you test temperature? You place a thermo in and see how much molecular kinetic energy it absorbs. How do you test force? You place an instrument on on an object to absorb the force. How do you see an object? You absorb some of the photons (a 			*******		) it releases. It's an idea that you must interact with anything to measure anything, and it is much more prevalent in quantum mechanics, where the slightest upset, including absorbing some of its photons, can change the outcome of a seemingly probability based (by chance) series of events.

Observing a quantum wave function collapses the wave function. Before looking at it it is theoretically all over a statistically predicatble area. Picture a sine wave drawn on a 0-100 scale. Depending on when you measure it, it could be anywhere from 0-100, but upon measuring, the sine wave collapses and maybe lands on 33. I've dumbed it down a bit but the concept is the same. The electron traversing this quantum wave is throughout the entire wave, more likely to be in some spots than others, but is in fact all over it. Analogously electrons used to be thought of as being in an orbit around a nucleus, but upon inspection with an electron microscope they are more of a cloud or an area which the electron lives in. The electron isnt everywhere in that cloud all the time, but it still looks that way until its actual stopped at a single point and measured. Trust me, I are a scientist.
