    Just something funny

    I know you have all had enough of these kinds of posts, but this ones just good for a laugh:

    http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/diffraction.htm

    Under the first paragraph in "MATH" -

    "Diffraction is accurately predicted by both ray and wave theory." - Ken Rockwell

    I took this from wikipedia, but to anyone who received their degree in "engineering, mathematics or physics as I did, this is easy" - Ken Rockwell

    "Ray theory does not describe phenomena such as interference and diffraction" - Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_(optics)

    Oops!

    Great example reminding once more all of us not to take Ken Rockwell seriously. I also know this has been already said many times, but isn' t it sad that people can actually nowadays make loads of money disseminating totally wrong and misleading information on the web?
    Thank you Nikanon for your post!
