Nerdy jokes, The Uncertainty Principle + Side-Swiping

Somehow I’m only able to remember two jokes: 1) about Sam Clam & Fred the Lobster (which is well beyond and below the scope of this newsletter), and 2) the above [attributed here], which is a nerdy joke referencing Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, which says that the more precisely a particle’s position is known, the less precisely its momentum is known, and vice versa.

Lots of Gifts, Even More Electrons + Yoda

Recently, for whatever reason, I’ve been thinking about ‘receiving.’ Like, REALLY receiving.
