Robot Barkeep

So what's your favorite Christmas movie or television show? It's A Wonderful Life? A Christmas Carol? A Charlie Brown Christmas? How the Grinch Stole Christmas? A Christmas Story? Don't ask me why, but for me it's "Scrooge," the musical version of Dicken's classic; the one starring Albert Finney. I blogged about it last year.

While researching yesterday's post, I came across this guide to when your favorite holiday program airs on TV.


[Note: Enjoy television for what it is, and remember that this is just a joke. -- MR]

A guy walks into a fancy new bar and sees that there's a robot behind the bar, doing the work of the bartender. The robot rolls over to him, takes his drink order, then asks the man if he knows his I.Q. The man says his I.Q. is 164. The robot, while preparing the man's drink, immediately launches into a discussion about Einstein's Theory of Relativity, Hawking's Theory of Everything, and quantum physics.

The man is amazed. Intrigued, he returns to the bar the next day. This time he tells the robot his I.Q. is 104. The robot begins asking questions about gardening and conversationally discusses the Internet, and recently published books.

The next day the man says his I.Q. is 58. The robot responds with, "S-o, w-h-a-t i-s y-o-u-r f-a-v-o-r-i-t-e T-V s-h-o-w?"

As an alternative to Quantum Theory there is a new theory that describes and explains the mysteries of physical reality. While not disrespecting the value of Quantum Mechanics as a tool to explain the role of quanta in our universe. This theory states that there is also a classical explanation for the paradoxes such as EPR and the Wave-Particle Duality. The Theory is called the Theory of Super Relativity and is located at: Super Relativity
This theory is a philosophical attempt to reconnect the physical universe to realism and deterministic concepts. It explains the mysterious.
