Perhaps we should first define how many dimensions we are working with.

Bitcoins aren't round, if you look very closely they consist of rectangles, and if you look even closer they consist of 0's and 1's. Looking round is just an illusion to be compatible with humanity's historical conceptions about money.

1. When I saw the title I had a feeling someone didn't understand some science.

2. When I read the OP, I had a feeling someone would screw up and use the Bohr model of the atom to justify roundness.

3. When someone finally did use the Bohr model, I had a feeling I'd end up being the one who explained how and why they were wrong.

When someone not only proved me wrong on #3 but went on to make Schroedinger jokes about the market collapsing when observed I finally realized EXACTLY how right for me this community is.

You guys rock.

I avoided this thread after reading it when it was only 1 post, definitely a pleasant surprise.  I miss the cheesy physics humor of grad school.

Although stocks usually go down right after I buy them, like when I lost my entire portfolio of $2500 in eight days last year, this is a little more like a lightning strike from Hermes.

What stocks did you buy that went to zero value in 8 days? Definitely not any on the S&P 500, NYSE or NASDAQ

I want a coin with key and transaction imagery that says along the rim "There is no coin".

Religion is like a penis.  It's great to have one, it's OK to be proud of it. . .but don't whip it out in public and PLEASE don't shove it down the children's throats.

Electron orbits are round, not square Smiley

Wow. The Bohr model...

A clue to the vintage of your worldview right there.

Well duh. Quoting M theory would not make a joke, it would just be creepy weird. Maybe you are confusing me with someone?
