    Depends. What's in it for me?

    I demand that I may, or may not, be Groonfondle.

    Which brings up the question -- where is it when it is "between" for such a long time? Subspace?

    I need that attachment for my vacuum cleaner. You would not believe some of the things that wind up under my bed.

    I got into an argument with Steinberg once. He won.
    Still:
    "Take the average of the clock-hand positions of the ensemble, and you get a number that can be interpreted as representative of the correct value for a single atom".

    You have to wonder if the interpretation of tunnelling time really corresponds to the time the airline leaves your call on hold.

    This is news to me
    To explain results from the quantum world however, the concept of probability needs to be expanded to include a so-called quasi-probability, which can be negative.

    I found this
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quasiprobability_distribution

    Apparently Wigner came up with some of this back in the 1930s. What was that again about not understanding QM?

    Negative probability. Sounds like our grocery order. There is a negative probability that we will actually receive some of the items ordered, which manifests as strange, quasi-random substitutions which propagate down the timestream and eventually result in some odd expressions at the dinner table.

    It certainly explains the results of my attempts to win the lottery.
