Wisdom From Wanda

Wanda the Fish had some profound insight for me today. She said:

Q: Why did the tachyon cross the road?

A: Because it was on the other side.

Ponder that for a while (along with the Standard Model Lagrangian), and it all becomes clear.


  1. My roommates didn't get the joke. But we are talking about a 17 year old undeclared major, a 18 year old MDT (music dance and theater) major and a 23 year old MFHD major. The EE major got it.

  2. Reminds me of the poem:

    There once was a lady named Bright,
    Who traveled much faster then light,
    She went out one day in a relative way,
    And returned the previous night.

    I still to this day wonder if tachyons could exist. From what I understand they wouldn't react with ordinary matter so I don't know how we could detect them. However, if I was a good physicist I would have to say, "If they don't exist in the lab, then they don't exist."
