An uncertain joke

Werner Heisenberg

A joke I heard from a local Chemist chossid. (For those with no background in physics, read this first.)
A cop stops an electron going at a high speed on a highway. He approaches the electron and asks: “Sir, do you know how fast you were going?” The electron answers: “I know exactly how fast I was going, but I have no idea where I am.”

No, really, it is.

I agree. I also heard a funny father-in-law joke (our conversation fluctuated from science to my upcoming nuptuals), but my kallah tells me it’s very old and known by all. (Is there a word for that in English language? Like, an inverse of omniscient.)
