Why is Quantum Mechanics Weird?

In her efforts to demystify quantum mechanics, YouTuber Sabine Hossenfelder, has done quite a few videos on the topic.

In this video she explains exactly why quantum mechanics is weird.

Is it entanglement or superpositions? Schrödinger’s cats?

Not quite, really. But the famous Elitzur-Vaidman Bomb Experiment demonstrates well just why quantum mechanics is weird indeed.
