For those who don’t follow slashdot, or didn’t catch this article, there’s an interesting website put together by a guy named Dave Jarvis that briefly explains quantum entanglement in layman’s terms. (Humor from the slashdot comments: “‘Quantum Entanglement?’ Is that what the geek kids are calling it these days? … Call it whatever the hell you want; geeks still won’t get any.”)
I found the website to have pretty good non-scientific, non-mathematical explanations, though it didn’t really answer any questions for me about entanglement. Good read though, and if you’re interested in how creepy physics things work, it’ll stoke your interest. Especially look at the Questions and Applications pages, which I found to be the most interesting of the whole site.
