Joke that Professor Filippenko read in lecture:Please stop jumping up…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

Joke that Professor Filippenko read in lecture:

Please stop jumping up and down on my wooden board. I'm trying to keep my Planck constant.
