Now, if we can just get this coconut up to the speed of light . . .

When putting Medium Raggirl -- who is having the Mad Science fifth birthday party -- to bed last night, she asked me one of the most profound scientific questions of all time.

"Can you explain to me whether electrons are Waves or Pineapples?"

And hence bedtime was delayed by 10 minutes for a full explanation of the Wave/Pineapple Duality, in which an electron can move throw two slits simultaneously, like a wave, but if careful observations are taken, the electron will miraculously transform into a tropical fruit, which can only pass through one slit at a time.
