Schrodinger's roadtrip?





DoctorBeaver
I think this is a classic.

Very fine. Smile

Reminds me of the non-standard road sign on the (then) newly-opended by-pass around Bury, Lancs. UK where it blended improperly with the 'old' road to Tottington... The instruction to drivers was 'Weave now!' It didn't stay in place too long due to snags (in the resultant 'weaving') that the Traffic Authority didn't forsee. Rolling Eyes

I'll post that image on. Thanks again, DoctorBeaver. ed. Very Happy

Heh, shouldn't they have made the max speed 30x10^8 though?

Not sure how 30^2 comes into it? Unless it's a bad reference to e=mc^2 ?

The satirist here should be allowed a little slack tho', surely? Sheesh! I'm happy enough that the use of mantissa exponent has made it to general knowledge.

I wonder what the units are too? 30-squared furlongs per fortnight, perhaps? ed. Rolling Eyes

About the speed a 3-legged ox can plough an acre?
