Quantum Mechanics Explained...

Thanks to Marginal Revolution for this link.

See... it's not as confusing as you thought it was! (well.... I'll let you be the judge of that).

The annoying thing is that I read Feynman's "The Strange Theory of Light and Matter" years ago and seem to have completely missed the point.  This article does an excellent job of explaining how part of the difficulty in understanding some of the results of quantum mechanics are the fault of how we traditionally think about classical mechanics.
