quantum theory of sexual interaction

take a moment to go read a unified quantum theory of the sexual interaction by UK astronomer peter coles. it's just hilarious.

i'll leave you with a hint and let you go explore:
In the simplest theories of the sexual interaction, the eigenstates of the Hamiltonian describing all allowed forms of two-body coupling are identified with the conventional gender states, “Male” and “Female” denoted |M> and |F> in the Dirac bra-ket notation; note that the bra is superfluous in this context so, as usual, we dispense with it at the outset. Interactions between |M> and |F> states are assumed to be attractive while those between |M> and |M> or |F> and |F> are supposed either to be repulsive or, in some theories, entirely forbidden.

Observational evidence, however, strongly suggests that two-body interactions involving either F-F or M-M coupling, though suppressed in many situations, are by no means ruled out in the manner one would expect from the simplest theory outlined above.

Low brow enough to make me feel smart, but smart enough to be funny and clever!

Can't wait for his observations on the double-slit experiment.

What?
