People I'm in Awe of

Anyone who can talk about, "pretty basic quantum mechanics." Damn you Phil, er actually guy who wrote to Phil.

Actually I shouldn't insult myself that much, there is a fair amount of the basics of Quantum Mechanics that I understood just fine. I just don't have even close to enough skill in math to be able to fuck with the numbers they're talking about.

If you find you don't have much taste for math, let me turn you on to a book that may give you a taste for numbers, Fear of Physics has a chapter on "The Art of Numbers" that might get you calculating things for the sheer fun of it.
