Funny is Everywhere, Installment II

The fine print is not completely legible at this resolution, so I have transcribed it for you.

The copy reads,"Please keep away. Thor, mighty god of thunder and lightning, locked securely inside (for past several thousand years). Kindly do not open as your immediate death, followed by 40-day-rain with flooding will result.

I think it's weird, you know, that it's just right there at a mall in Pacific Grove.

The Libertarian Farmer and the Federal DEA Agent

A DEA officer stops at a ranch in Montana , and talks with an old
rancher. He tells the rancher, 'I need to inspect your ranch for
illegally grown drugs.

The old rancher says, 'Okay, but do not go in that field over there'
as he points out the location.

The DEA officer verbally explodes saying, 'Mister, I have the
authority of the Federal Government with me.' Reaching into his rear
pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the
farmer. 'See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever
I wish...on any land. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made
myself clear? Do you understand?'

The old rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about his chores.

A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the
DEA officer running for his life chased close behind by the rancher's
prize bull. With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer,
and it seems likely that he'll get "horned" before he reaches safety.
The officer is clearly terrified.

The old rancher throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at
the top of his lungs.....

'Your badge! Show him your badge!

The weird sh... err, "stuff," that I think about

This is very real, quantum physics and string theory. A change in one of a separated sub-atomic particle pair, up to a mile apart, triggers a change in the other. There is a connection in a realm we do are yet to perceive. Subatomic particles also travel backwards in time.

The content below is the best analogy to help in the understanding of higher dimensions/different universes/things beyond our perception, the foundation for Stephen Hawking's string theory. Yet it was written in 1884, 6 years before the invention of the bra, around the time of the plank road boom, I believe.

In closing, a quote by Albert Einstein:

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."

I might need to go back to school to satisfy my lust for wonder. And this time I could party AND study!
