Happy Agnostica

Today is Quantum Mechanics Day – the first day of Agnostica! On December 14, 1900, Max Planck presented experimental data at the German Physical Society and said that it could best be explained if energy existed in discrete packets, which he called “quanta.”

The holiday of Agnostica is an invention of Darren Bleuel, author of the comic strip Nukees. And quite a fun one with many traditions that span at least a couple of years! (My favorite being the Möbius-strip chains!) As it says in the banner on his site, “For anyone who has calculated Santa’s airspeed…”
