Hijos de puta, coño, por qué no le cae una bomba atómica a este maldito país de mierda, cuna de lobos, alcoba de cabrones, pendejos orgullosos de vivir en este ridículo mojón que flota en el mar.

What I learned this semester:
Quantum Tunneling
- At the quantum (read: itty-bitty) level, particles act like waves
- A wave that hits a wall won’t end right at that wall (according to the constraints of quantum mechanics), it will continue on, though it will rapidly decay.
- If the width of the wall is thin enough, it won’t have decayed entirely by the time it hits the other side of the wall. Once it arrives there, it will continue on its happy way like it did before it hit the wall the first time, but with a much diminished amplitude.
- This transmittance of the wave through the barrier is called Quantum Tunneling. The higher energy the wave is, the slower it will decay, and thus the more it will be transmitted (i.e. the more it will tunnel).
- Quantum tunneling of electrons and hydrogen atoms in reactions is a large contributor to the over rate of reactions
