As if we needed more evidence that Justin Trudeau is some kind of cyborg Manchurian candidate sent to charm us all into complacency while he secretly plots to take over the world, now we know he's knowledgeable in quantum computing.
Trudeau has become a media sensation, and photos of him performing feats beyond normal human abilities quickly go viral. Take, for example, him casually doing a peacock yoga pose.
While visiting the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, a reporter prefaced a question by joking, "I was going to ask you to explain quantum computing but..." before asking his actual question, which was about ISIS. Trudeau just smirked, confident in the knowledge that he was about to blow everyone's mind with his grasp of quantum computing.
"Very simply," Trudeau began. "Normal computers work by..." That's when the audience broke into laugher, the simple humans assuming the PM was just joking back. But this was no joke. Trudeau went on to explain the basic concepts of quantum computing, deftly dodging the reporter's actual question and impressing everyone in the room.
