Flawed logic. FFS entangled particles break second law of thermodynamics - conservation of momentum falls under thermodynamics.
If you prove it has an exception, which is clearly the case with this, it's hardly a law.
People like to cling to crap they learned in school, right wrong or indifferent.
I don't think we can toss the 'laws' out on the lawn quite yet ~ but work in the last handful of years has expanded the laws of thermodynamics.
Carnot & Kelvin never dreamed about 'quantum effects' and "information" being players in the energy quest.
Thanks for the links
We show that entangled states can be used to extract thermodynamic work beyond classical correlation
Wowness. Very interesting developments.
Quantum mechanics is fascinating and I have to accept what is explained, as I can only barely grasp the theory. But the fact (been proven) that photons can communicate (i.e., 'information') faster than the speed of light opens the door and lets the light (pardon pun) shine on much than was only fantasy prior to this discovery.
It could really bake your noodle if you get high enough to agree with the postulation that we might be living in a holographic reality.

Funny you should say that, I just read this earlier today;
Under the covers (Nature revealed) – 1 August 2014
Quote:A representation of the individual quantum trajectories that connect two points in quantum state space. Classical systems are unmoved when a measurement is performed. Not so quantum systems, where continuous monitoring can direct the quantum state along a random path. Steve Weber et al. have tracked the quantum trajectories in a qubit, consisting of two aluminum paddles connected by a tunable Josephson junction deposited on silicon. The authors manage to determine which of the possible paths between an initial and a final quantum state is the most probable and show that these ‘optimal paths’ are in agreement with the route predicted by theory, a quantum relative of the principle of least action that defines the correct path linking two points in space and time in classical mechanics.
Maybe this is a recent photograph of British scientist Roger Shawyers front yard? (*-*)

Tru dat, Octo.
I enjoy layman's books on the micro & macro cosm's side of life. Two physicists that can make it understandable are Drs. Stephen Hawaking and Gerald Schroeder.
