Uncertain Principles Challenge 2008

Help Chad Orzel raise money for Science teaching! Go here now.

Why, you ask? John Scalzi says it best:

Chad is, like, six feet, 28,000 inches. He’s a pretty big dude. And as everyone knows, large dudes are funny to watch dancing. But there’s more! He’s also a physicist and a fully tenured professor or such, and as well all know, the overlap between “tenured physics professors” and “adept dancers” is trivially small. Finally, Chad has a sort of gawky, innate dignity — he’s a friendly sort, but let’s just say I’ve never seen him prone to wanton acts of physical comedy. What I’m saying is, making Chad Orzel dance like a monkey would be the comedy highlight of 2008.
