Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown
as the dust from which he rises


What is the sound of one hand slapping Schroedinger's cat?


The Quantum Duck goes "quark, quark."

Widely recognized as one of the West’s most-prestigious scientific honors, the Nevada Medal acknowledges outstanding achievement in science and engineering.

Established by the Desert Research Institute in1988, the annual award includes an eight-ounce minted medallion of 99.9 percent pure Nevada silver and a $20,000 lecture honorarium sponsored by communications company SBC.
