A farmer notices his chickens ar getting sick, he calls in a physicist to help him. The physicist takes a good look at the chickens and does some calculations, he suddenly stops and says "Ive got it, but it would only work if the chickens were spherical and in a vacuum." |

This joke is hilarious because physicists to analyze situations super simplify, basically we simplify the situation as much as possible. For example when the Si wave function can be dependent on x, y, z, and t, the problem is simplified to just (x,t) or even just (x). So in the case of the chickens he probably wouldn't figure out why they are sick but he still simplified their moments of mass and took away wind resistance. l0l |
