If Nano's cat is so weird (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=99225) and he is uncertain of anything, Was this cat previously owned by a nice man named Schrodinger? :D

The cool thing abut Schrodinger's cat is that he (the cat) was following the same line of reasoning re:Schrodinger while he (the cat) was inside the box.

Your Physics Lesson for Today

Quote:
Heisenberg and Schrodinger are driving, and get pulled over. Heisenberg, in the driver’s seat, is asked by the officer, “do you know how fast you were going?” Heisenberg replies, “No, but I know exactly where I am.” The officer looks at him confused and says, “you were going 108 miles per hour!” Heisenberg throws up his arms and cries, “Great! Now I’m lost.”

The officer, now more confused than ever, orders the two men out of the car, and proceeds to inspect the vehicle. He opens the trunk and yells at the two men, “Hey! Did you guys
know you have a dead cat back here?” Schrodinger angrily yells back, “We do now, jerk!”


:D :lol:

How tiresome of them. :wink:

postscript: the main headline from which this article is linked has been maintained on the BBC's website in its glorious "pickles pressed on incinerator" terms.

"Sister portrays doctor as Eagan woman gives birth on bathroom floor".

"Portrays doctor"? Someone needs to ease off on the TV time. And get a thesaurus while they're at it.
