Det er rett. Ingen Google translate, for moro effekt.
OK, I promise to stop now. (I'm visiting Norway next year and, as Paul would rightly suspect, I have to chat up those Viking guys somehow.

Very good. You may find small talk to be overrated, though. “Ty i ja teraz idziemy do jaskini” will do just fine.

Seriously, I wouldn't even try. The local blonde competition is too strong :-)

I am trying to understand infinite, and then understood I just need to follow de Broglie to the very end

"The de Broglie wave has infinite extent in space." Prof. Lvovsky, Oxford University

"The de Broglie wave cannot be derived from quantum mechanics...."..."it is a generalization of multitude of experimental observations..."

are people not afraid of being radiated by these waves, and no where to hide ( not even outsider the visible universe), anyone that got a tin-foil hat for Christmas?

No tin foil hats this year - stocked up on those after the Presidential election! 

But I did buy some leopard ear muffs (faux but nice) and a matching stole.

These send out Cat Waves. I may add Bose noise cancelling headphones and then de Broglie waves are somewhat mitigated? ; )

Charged particles are harmless in their ostentatious electro-cuteness. The impalpably neutral ones are dangerous.

Some Romans walk into a bar. One of them holds up to fingers and the bartender promptly brings them five beers. (You may have to look at your hand to get this one)

A mathematician, physicist and an engineer walk into to a bar.

Barman: "is this supposed to be a joke?"
