I really did not think I would be writing about Lemmy Kilmister, even if Dr. Anna is as metal as iridium. But alas, the late heavy metal icon has found his way to science news in a very strange way.
As I started to write this, a rather ridiculously meaty creature (Meleagris gallopavo to be precise) had been stuffed and was being slowly roasted. Eventually, it was consumed by a family of apes of genus Homo. Stripped of flesh, the skeletal remains of this creature marked it as a maniraptoran coelurosaur of clade Aves – the sole line of Dinosauria to persist after the Cretaceous-Palaeogene extinction event. Literally every example of this line is more closely related to the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex than Triceratops, Diplodocus, or Stegosaurus were to either.
The uncertainty principle states that:
“we cannot measure the position and the momentum of a particle with absolute precision. If we know one of these values with certainty, the less accurately we know of the other”.
Yes, this thought is messing with my head too.
