We have obtained the first direct evidence that remarkably long-lived wavelike electronic quantum coherence plays an important part in energy transfer processes during photosynthesis. This wavelike characteristic can explain the extreme efficiency of the energy transfer because it enables the system to simultaneously sample all the potential energy pathways and choose the most efficient one.

I'm waitin' on Quantum Photosynthesis for Dummies. Until then, I'll just stand here in the corner and smile and nod at appropriate intervals to give the impression I have a clue as to what is being said. (blows bubble)

Yeah, too many words.

Not the plant part...the quantum physics part. That there is some cool shit.

Loogie, you are full of surprises.

Yes, I know. I love quantum physics even though I only understand it on a kindergarten grade level. And I love Yuengling even outside of PA. I am an enigma wrapped in a bow stuck in Pandora's box. And being stuck in a box ain't all that bad. Yuk, yuk, yuk.

Actually, I didn't even think of pre-school as being a level so I guess I'm prolly about at the terrible two phase (knowing how smart you are and gauging about where I'd prolly be understanding it) with it. So your nerd status is in no danger of being upset.

I like the avatar too. It kinds splains some things for me.

And man oh man, I wish that would be soon. Sadly though I am in the poor house for the rest of this year at least. I won't be going anywhere 'cept what I already got planned in June. Then that's it. I can't afford to pay attention right now. I'm working like a dog hauling that trash on overtime even. I gotta make some green. Anyway, if'n you or the ex-Mayor or both or anybody stops by Taxachusetts anytime give me a holla and we'll chew on some brew. I might even let Greyboy hang out with us too.
