And what do we propose to do about faked dates on *paper*
imprints?  It's been known to happen.  Let alone simple, innocent
mistakes, or later confusions about the year because publication was

I suspect the same kinds of confirmatory arguments and evidence can
be applied to both electrons and paper.  Or does Heisenberg's
uncertainty principle apply only to the former?
