The last great German airship of the 1930's. It crashed because they could say where it was, or how fast it was going, but never both at the same time........
A Physicist's joke, based on a combination of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and the German airship Hindenburg.
"He's had three beers at lunchtime and now he's wandering round the office like the Heisenberg."
Verb that expresses the concept that the act of talking about a phenomenon changes the phenomenon. For example, if you see a squirrel come within 5 feet of where you are sitting, and you attempt to alert your companions, the act of alerting them will scare off the squirrel.
Taken from Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, which holds that it is not possible to know with certainty both the position and the momentum of a particle. The act of measuring either variable changes the other.
Dude, I would have shown you the squirrel, but I was afraid that I would have heisenberged it.
v. To be one-upped in a normally confident situation so badly that the only possible course of action is to accept defeat and walk away.
1: "Man the music at this party sucks!"
2: "Yeah well it's my house, if you don't like it you can leave."
3: "Heisenberg that hoe!"
Ex: To Heisenberg your mother in law.
