Measurement Problem

Left panel: A professor stands at the board and addresses the class. "Even though you are all theoretical physicists, it's good to have contact with the experimental side of things. So how would you propose we measure this quantity in an experiment?" Right panel: A student answers, "Um, we ask the experimenters?" The professor says, "Not what I was going for, but that probably is the practical thing to do."

Theoretical physicists are nothing if not resourceful.
