Carmen Electra and the Law of Attraction

I was in CVS today buying some playing cards when I spied the latest copy of Us Weekly and started flipping thru it. This magazine is like a Hollywood train wreck in print form. After reading about the horrors of Tara Reid's botched plastic surgeries and the life lessons she learned, I spied this awesome quote from Carmen Electra, erstwhile "Strip Aerobics" instructor and physics hobbyist:
I'm really into quantum physics. Some of my friends are into it, some of them aren't, so I'm trying to get them excited about discovering all these interesting things about thoughts and the power of thoughts.

It gives me chills thinking about it. It's fun.

It's about time celebrities started endorsing active participation in science and encouraging the younger generation to get interested in learning. And while I imagine that Richard Feynman would've been a big fan of Carmen's ability to tone her body thru the high impact art of striptease, he might take exception to her implicit definition of quantum physics in the above quote.

Quantum physics is a seriously complex topic, one that I admittedly have a very weak grasp on.  However, I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with the "power of thoughts."  I would suggest Ms. Electra consider taking some courses at the local university to brush up on her understanding of physics.  While I'm sure she will be bored by the rudimentary Newtonian physics models she will be forced to study in the beginning of her educational journey, she will get to study quantum models soon enough.  And when she does advance to that point, she will have learned enough to realize just how stupid the above quote was.

The Oprah broadcast of "The Secret" will be February 8th. Also, it will be followed by an International Law of
Attraction Teleconference. If you want more info go to
Also, the more posts that Oprah gets on her message boards about a particular topic, the more inclined she is to
repeat the topic. So go to and find the message board for “The Secret” to let her know that you
want more of the same!
Spread the word!
