Unreasonable Uncertainty from Questionably Serious SCOTUS Men (and gals)

The uncertainty principle is a prime theme in the Cohen Brothers film, A Serious Man.

The Questionably Serious Men
and Women of SCOTUS
have fed fresh fuel into the fires
of irrational certitude with their theory
of "reasonable certainty" in NAUTILUS, INC. v BIOSIG:

In place of the “insolubly ambiguous” standard, we hold that a patent is invalid for indefiniteness if its claims [all of them, any of them?] , read in light of the specification delineating the patent [delineating? huh? WTF does that mean?] , and the prosecution history, fail to inform, with reasonable certainty, those skilled in the art about the scope of the invention.
