## Unscramble the Blue Letters

So what I'm telling you here is something truly fantastic. What does it mean for one thing to be both varbnitig and not vibrating at the same time? So let's think about the amtos. So in one case: all the trillions of atoms that make up that chunk of metal are sitting still and at the same time those same atoms are mnviog up and down. Now it's only at precise times when they ailgn. The rest of the time they're delocalized. That means that every atom is in two different places at the same time, which in turn mneas the entire chunk of metal is in two different places. I think this is really cool. (Laughter) Really.

## Original Text

So what I'm telling you here is something truly fantastic. What does it mean for one thing to be both vibrating and not vibrating at the same time? So let's think about the atoms. So in one case: all the trillions of atoms that make up that chunk of metal are sitting still and at the same time those same atoms are moving up and down. Now it's only at precise times when they align. The rest of the time they're delocalized. That means that every atom is in two different places at the same time, which in turn means the entire chunk of metal is in two different places. I think this is really cool. (Laughter) Really.
