I thought I saw a comment about Godel go by. Something to the effect
that Godel's results only apply to abstract mathemathematical systems,
as opposed to being a more generalizable result.

But that's okay; I still like the fact that most people explain away
the uncertainty of Quantum Mechanical systems by saying "well, yeah;
God plays dice with the universe. But at least he plays dice
