Caps in title

I'm a novice here, but it looks likely that the title of this article should capitalize only the first word. John R. Brews 04:40, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

Oh boy! Let's not go there. I'm one of the few around here who believes that the style manuals (such as Chicago Manual of Style) are actually correct when they say that the titles of articles, headings, etc., should be capitalized. I've never understood why CZ insists on these non-traditional capitalization schemes. Russell D. Jones 03:32, 29 November 2010 (UTC)

Quantum mechanics...and quantum wrenches

We were having a silly chat the other night, but observed, especially on a dark and stormy night, that changing a tire is an exercise in the Heisenberg principle. One can see the lug nut on the tire, or one can see the position of the wrench, but the wrench blocks the view of the nut, and, in particular, if the socket is aligned with the nut.

Offered as a basic example. I am receiving feline glares at even thinking of you-know-who's Cat. Howard C. Berkowitz 15:03, 18 February 2011 (UTC)
