Quick Heisenberg Joke

Really odd. Werner Heisenberg has just turned up for dinner, despite having been dead for more than 30 years.

It's all my grandfather's fault, I see. Having a keen interest in physics, he invited Werner to dinner in 1957. He was a bit vague on the time dinner started, but sent a very accurate seating plan.


  1. Heisenberg joke (as told by his students)

    Heisenberg dies and goes to Heaven
    God tells him that now he is in Heaven, all things can be revealed.
    Heisenberg says - "that's fine. Please O Lord explain to me why the fine structure constant is 1/137"

    God says 'No problem', clicks His fingers and a blackboard and chalk appear. God begins to write equations. Heisenberg watches and comments

    After equation 1: Ja, Ja, korrect. Das ist richtig.
    After equation 2: Ja, korrect. Das ist richtig.
    After equation 3: Nein! Nein! Nein!. Das ist nicht korrect!
