Location: Denver Airport, hour-long security line. Equation: Schrödinger's.The gentleman looked surprised, but said OK when I stopped him and asked for a photo. There wasn't time to get the back-story....
I was in an REU once with a guy who had E /psi = H /psi tattooed on his arm. He was a chemist, actually, which made it even cooler.
You get a tattoo of Schrodinger's equation, and then you're surprised that someone wants to snap a picture?
okay, now I don't feel so weird about wanting a tattoo of the photoelectric effect...
That looks AWFUL!! Did he got that in some sort of physicist prison??
It wasn't a high-quality tattoo, but my phone photo was unfairly unflattering. Sorry, tattoo dude!Dr. Dave: I suspect that any stories invented about the tattoo's origins are better than the truth. Please, invent away. I, for example, am envisioning "Copenhagen" vs. "Many-Worlds" prison gangs, singing geeky lyrics to West Side Story.Sean: People always seem surprised when attention is called to nerd accoutrements. I think they underestimate the # of nerds out there....
so not to quote paris hilton or anything, but, tha'ts hot. last year i asked a woman if i could take a picture of her tattoo, it was the ADAPT sign (a symbol of a guy in a wheelchair ripping off chains)
