Who said herding cats is difficult?! You just need a cardboard box.

He may have.  You have no way of knowing unless you observed it.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

It can't, it's in a box.

I hope somebody brings it beer there.

Don't know. It's in a box.

Personally I think Schrodinger was a bit of a twit.  He only had to construct a glass box to witness the state of an atom.. or whatever he wanted to do.

Something like this:

You're missing the point: it's the not knowing that makes the experiment.

Think of it in terms of football: Not long ago the only televised football we had was match of the day. If you couldn't get to the game on Saturday, you dodged your mates and the TV until 10:00 and then you could watch your team play not knowing if they had won or lost. Until you know, the result can be anything.

In the cat thing, if the cat is left in a box there is no doubt that:

1) the cat was alive when it went in
2) sometime in the future the cat will be dead.

But you can't tell which one applies at any time without looking. So in the intervening period between looks is it either or both?

If you had to bet your life on it, which would you


I nearly took your post seriously then.

The smirk on Gary Lineker's face is like the glass box: it always gives the result away in advance.
