Schrödinger's cat. caught sayof box has stoped Cesium atom. " See told you so" Is It dead or not? CNN Says yes. St. Pete Times Looking for chads

Over in 1. Well played, sir.

Ask Heisenberg.

I DNRTFA because I did not want to collapse the waveform function, therefore leaving the "birthday-ness" in two super imposed states.

The practical upshot of which is that I don't need to get Erwin a birthday present.

It must be exciting to be Schrodinger and opening presents.

"Another dead cat!  Thanks so much!"

show me: Ask Heisenberg.


He's not sure. The man isn't sure if he's coming or goes, but he says he's getting there fast.

i hear he's really into plancking.
 
2013-08-12 09:28:48 AM  
There's a cat in a box and maybe its dead, or NOT?!
Who knows?

/SCIENCE!!

I get a lot of comments on the ThinkGeek Schrodinger shirt when in public.  Occasionally, women will come up to me, some angry, because the front of the shirt tells them that someone's cat is dead.

I have to turn around and show them the back, and their anger turns to confusion.

I tell them to look it up and walk away.  This has happened about ten times since I started wearing the shirt.

I get the theory, but yeah. That's my opinion on Schrodinger's cat.

If this keeps up, I may have to move back to Newton Mass.

?I know it's weak, but someone already did the Bohr pun and I can't work Michelson into a pun.

I was idly chatting with my boss at a previous job, and Schrödinger's Cat came up in the conversation, not sure why, and a passing saleslady stopped, came up to us and asked "what the hell is Schrödinger's Cat? I've heard it mentioned before, etc."

I spent twenty minutes trying to explain it to her as my boss laughed and laughed... she still didn't get it and walked away confused.

Did you spend those twenty minutes trying to convince her than the cat really is alive and dead at the same time, while she kept believing that that was ridiculous and couldn't be true?  Because if so, her interpretation is more accurate than yours.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled physics puns.
