Fresh Prince of Bell Pair

Written for my Masters completion talk. Video.


now this is a story, all about how

my life got spun, both up and down

and i’d like to take a minute, just sit right there

and i’ll tell you how i became the prince, of the state called bell pair

in programming languages, born and raised, on the computer, was where i spent most of my days

typing out, compiling, building some tools, and all surfing the internet looking for news

when a couple of guys who seemed kinda fine, started making trouble in polynomial time!

they got in one little fight (BQP vs BPP) and everyone got scared,

someone said: we’re going to build a quantum computer, so you better be prepared!
