I seem to be going through a phase of easy reading style science books at the moment.

Currently reading Big Bang by simon singh (who also wrote the code book).

it's so well written and gives a really funny, thorough history of the scientific descoveries that have lead to the current undertanding of the cosmos.

That after having read "in search of schrodinger's cat" which was a little bit more hardcore.

I have to say Singh is one of my favourite authors at the mo.

You haven't been learning new physics jokes have you?

No sadly not, I haven't hearx a good one for ages! Must be hanging with the wrong crowd :)

Een operator A voelt zich depressief. Hij gaat naar een de psychiater. Hij
moet zich op een bank leggen en over zichzelf vertellen. De de psychiater
luistert goed.

Na een tijdje maakt de psychiater de volgende opmerking: Je klinkt zo
denigrerend over jezelf. Heb je dan geen enkele eigenwaarde?

A: Jazeker, maar ze zijn allemaal negatief...

Dutch Physics puns, can it get any better than this?

If I explain it still might not be funny. Apparently eigenwaarde means both eigenvector and self-respect. So it's a pun.

Almost, it means eigenvalue. But I doubt Drekkus will appreciate it more now.

Ah of course. That even makes it make sense. There has been a long evening's drinking since I posted it.

Ah, to re-answer Debaser's question, I just encountered a great physics rhyme in said book.

Twinkle, twinkle little star
I don't wonder what you are.

For by spectroscopic ken,
I know that you're hydrogen

Twinkle twinkle little star
I don't wonder what you are.
