I'll stick to flipping pancakes, my head hurts as it is.

I'm so glad quantum computers don't decide my dinner :D

Well damn! I felt good about myself for being able to follow this brain twister and felt like I was understanding it.. and then it said "if you think you understand quantum mechanics, you don't understand quantum mechanics" Talk about putting my train of thought into a superposition, lol

In my field of work quantum computing has the potential to reduce computing time in orders of magnitude. I regularly have to solve linear systems of up to several million equations - a process that feels like it takes for ever (months really if repeated solving is necessary). Quantum computing offers to speed up this specific computation exponentially compared to classical algorithms. The benefits for industrial product development, logistics... would be enormous! So, I really do not get why cyber security and the whole prime factor business is highlighted every time the topic of quantum computing is raised.

I got to seven minutes and nineteen seconds and my brain annoyingly ran out of processing power and the rest of me the will to live. :P

I think that this could all be summed up by:-
We don't know what state the quantum computer is in and by looking at it we break it.
By some cunning sums we do know its state without breaking it!
Am I right?

#10 Yes but Quantum physics might just tip me over the edge. A hen can take just so much you know. :S
