More Quantum (Mechanics)

Time for another post. Last week I talked about quantum positions, and I think it’s safe to say I resolved that we could believe in them, or not believe in them, because that’s sort of what they are – a sort of potential ‘thing’ that exists in some form or other, somewhere, but it’s not exactly clear where. Sorted!

Today I want to talk about the quantum mechanics. This is a fine profession, and far more satisfying than working as an ordinary mechanic. Quantum mechanics often work in car dealerships, although they are also well known in the smaller independent businesses. If you want to start working as a quantum mechanic you need to be able to work in parallel universes. This is a tough gig that requires attention to detail and is probably why so many quantum mechanics make the mistake of ticking off jobs that they did on your car when in fact they did them in another universe and not the one they thought they were in. No, don’t laugh. It’s a very real problem. How tough do you think it is to keep track of your jobs in such a situation?

Your oil was changed when you got your car serviced, but not in this universe. The same for all those seals that were changed and the battery that was replaced. The wheel alignment was in fact done, albeit for your alternate satisfied self in another far off universe where you are happily motoring along in a well-functioning vehicle, not the one you got back with very little work apparently done on it and that has cost you a small fortune. The poor quantum mechanic was confused and disorientated due to the temporal and spatial changes, not sure where they were or what they had done that day. It’s quite understandable.

So, being a quantum mechanic is a lucrative business, which can potentially allow for multiple hours to be claimed in parallel. You can be in two different places at once, working on two different cars, just remember not to get those checklists mixed up. One of the added benefits of this job is also that you can be watching the football, having a beer in the pub, or even taking a light post-lunch snooze, and be working on a car at the same time. This is a career choice well worth considering.

Until next time
