Sweet I’ll have to submit my old California plates:
If there is one thing I will regret in life it is that I missed one of the most “terrifiq” opportunities of all time. While I was at the Santa Fe Institute, I had my QUBITS plates and sometimes would park beside Murray Gell-Mann’s car which had a QUARKS license place. At one point Ben Schumacher, who invented the word “qubit”, visited the Santa Fe Institute. Damnit that was my opportunity to get a picture of two people who invented words in the dictionary starting with a “q” beside two cars with those words as license plates! Drats, that would have been priceless.
(For quantum computing people make sure you ask Andrew Landahl what his license plate is next time you see him.)
