Physicists add ‘Quantum Cheshire Cats’ to list of quantum paradoxes
Given all the weird things that can occur in quantum mechanics—from entanglement to superposition to teleportation—not much seems surprising in the quantum world. Nevertheless, a new finding that an object’s physical properties can be disembodied from the object itself is not something we’re used to seeing on an everyday basis. In a new paper, physicists have theoretically shown that this phenomenon, which they call a quantum Cheshire Cat, is an inherent feature of quantum mechanics and could prove useful for performing precise quantum measurements by removing unwanted properties.

Jesus Christ stop making out in the museum I don’t wanna see that this is really not the place for that.
What did we do though
in terms of Surprise, bitch
like what did we just do do you realize what we have done

Wisconsin-based fiber artist, Molly Evans, put some lionel love out with her street art project. Armed with yellow yarn and a tag gun, she stitched snippets of Richie’s famous lyrics onto discarded pieces of furniture that she found on the streets.
I think Cosmo did some justice on this one
I feel this to my core.
I need proof (notarized proof) that this is from Cosmo. Nope, not gonna believe it.
It’s so real.
I never thought I’d slow clap for Cosmo, but here we are.
I didn’t wanna fall in love, not at all. But at some point you smiled, and, holy shit, I blew it
Rainbow lights are strung through the Via del Corso shopping district in Rome this month, honoring the memories of at least three gay Italian teenagers who died by suicide earlier this year — and sending a greater message about acceptance and love for LGBTQ people. Mayor Ignazio Marino and Assemblywoman Imma Battaglia overcame pushback from conservative groups to put up the lights, but the beautiful outcome seems to have been worth the fight. (via The Advocate)
