Quarter Electrons may make quantum computing more easily achievable. I like that you can swap the fractional-charged electrons around once they've associated and they'll never get so entangled that they can't trace back through their previous routes. However, I do wonder if the initial entanglement precludes detachment and re-entanglement with another group.
Wake them up before you go , go and kill them. Apparently if you feed bacteria enough to bring them out of hibernation and then immediately apply anti-biotics, you can achieve much better eradication rates. Punch 'em while they're groggy, I say!
