Our ability to measure pairs of complementary properties is limited to $$\hbar$$-sized chunks of uncertainty between them.

There's no point in paraphrasing, there's too much confusion and misconception already.

Sorry, one more try then? ;)

Our ability to predict the next measured value in a pair of complementary properties is limited by $$\hbar$$-sized chunks of uncertainty.

My thought on this is that, if you are truly serious in trying to understand things like this, you won't make a request with such ridiculous constraint.
