Particle physicists not yet willing to call the election for Obama

Sure, there's a 99.2% probability that he will win, but that is several standard deviations away from the 99.99995% confidence that the particle physicists would need to declare the election won. (This is satire, obviously.) Via Jennifer Ouellette.


  1. Election boy: Do not try and bend the election. That’s impossible. Instead… only try to realize the truth.

    Obama: What truth?

    Election boy: There is no election.

    Obama: There is no election?

    Election boy: Then you’ll see, that it is not the election that bends, it is only yourself.

  2. Knowing Wigner, I can attest that a close friend of ours says they’ve heard of an opinion on this matter from someone they know.
