Nerdy romance The Quantum poem


I decided to write another post about the nerdy romantic things I have done in the past. This one took place around valentine’s day about 2 years ago. That year a few days before valentine’s day me and the other physicist and astronomers of my year had our first quantum mechanics final, at the time I was also a little bit in love with one of the girls in my year, only from a far though I did have some conversations with her but we weren’t really close. Well for valentine’s day I wrote her a love poem with some quantum mechanical concepts mixed in, she didn’t really react the way I had hoped she would but I still like the poem:

The poem of the quantum love:

With the atoms my heart goes

For uncertainty is on the loose

I cannot know where it goes

While I still know where it is

But I hope it will be yours after time has done its work

The quantum mechanical concept I put into the poem is Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle which basically says that you cannot know the position and the momentum(classically mass times velocity) of a particle at the same time.

Day9 tv and Nerdy romance


Today I was watching a video from day9 where among other things he told a story about how he asked a girl out by writing an letter in old english and got an java script as answer (if you want to hear the details watch the video) and this reminded me of the time I wanted to sent a girl a valentines day card but wanted to do it anonymus. So what did I do I made a new email adress with my name encrypted in the email adress name, by using an easy encrytion scheme namely taking the first prime number to be “a” the second prime number to be “b” etc (a key like that is called a cryptographic key) and emailed her the drawing I had made and scanned.
