the chaos in Ken Jacobsen's brain

State Senator Ken Jacobsen on chaos theory:
"I'm into the theory of chaos. And in the theory of chaos, if this particle exists and this one comes into existence and this one doesn't know that one exists? It still affects the behavior of that one," he said, moving his hands around as if they were giant particles.
Fawning Seattle Times translation:
Jacobsen believes his legislation puts new ideas on the table and creates discussion that can affect the outcome of an issue, even if it takes years for the Legislature to finally act.
Actual translation: Ken Jacobsen needs to study up on chaos theory. Oh, and I suggest a new nickname for the senior Democrat from Seattle: Particle Man.
