(Science Daily)   Record quantum entanglement experiment allows for two Schrödinger cats to be alive, dead, or in 101 other states simultaneously, although at least seventy of those states involve hacking up furballs   (sciencedaily.com ) divider line

20 are furballs, the other 50 are puking on things out of spite or boredom.

Do you remember that one guy from college who could never admit he didn't understand something?  You should forward this to him and ask for his thoughts about the matter.

you fools! why couldn't you conduct it with 102 states?

The faster computer will help us build the antimatter warp drive more quickly, duh!

Dammit. the batteries just died in my Heisenburg Compensator. How am I supposed to figure this out?

It's already on the main page.

You'd do the same thing if you could,  you're just jelly.

Stupid. There are only 57 states.

And varieties.

Replace every use of the word "particle" with "penis".  Makes the article a lot easier to digest.

All the cats might as well be dead, so you can treat them as such.

ACK!

Why do they never discuss the possibility of FTL communication using quantum entanglement. Imagine real-time control and live video from the edge of the solar system or wherever. That would be farking awesome.

With their fondness for purple drank,  I bet a lot of them prefer grape jelly.

pdieten: I can tolerate furballs. I wish my wife's damn cat would stop vomiting food all over the house.


I was told (by advice-friend, so this isn't authoritative) that a simple change in cat food brand might resolve that issue.

As for TFA... I admit I'm out to sea. I've heard the "curled up" hypothesis but still don't understand what that actually means. There could be 23 angels curled up inside my nostril that are also too small to see, but I fail to understand why that's important. Are the curled up dimensions affective on the real universe?

Pfft. They added when they should of subtracted.
 
2014-03-28 02:28:51 PM  
It should have read 1024 possible states with 16 of them peeing in your shoes.

So someone is finally getting around to inventing photonic computers, it's about time damn it because you know how long we've been waiting.

because it's been discussed and isn't possible (though it would be awesome).

This isn't directly related, but have you read Light of Other Days? It basically talks about instantaneous passage of information between two points, which IIRC manifests as wormhole cameras, so you could watch anything since the dawn of humanity. It's a quirky little book.

So it's like this tangled pile of cats where they are all actually the same cat. And some of them are alive and some are dead. And they're all still inferior to dogs.

Is the cat simultaneously watching and not watching me masturbate?

I'M GOING TO BLAME QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT FOR THIS WHEN I GET AROUND TO READING THIS THREAD A FEW YEARS AGO.

This does explain how the cat can be curled up sound asleep on your bed one second, and instantaneously under your feet two steps down so you trip over it and break your neck on the way to the basement: entanglement.

As to the cat vomiting (or dog as well).

Yeah, I know someone involved in the pet care world/industry. Not a vet but interacts often. Apparently food 'allergies' or sensativities or whatevs is the main cause of barfiness or weird pooing.

Some animals need specific proteins or only some kinds of veges etc. and get sick as hell otherwise. (Seen it work, wish I knew w my former barfy cat, never connected the 'random' barf episodes to my random pet food purchases).

I always wondered at the binary restrictions of the Schrödinger cat analogy.

This actually makes more sense.

I thought there were only 50 states.

Well, they say you only truly understand something when you can explain it to someone else.

So DO IT!

I'm sorry but beyond the 73rd dimension I don't get it.
