Poor Schrodinger was just posing a hypothetical…
[Via I f***ing love science]
The lack of education and reading comprehension these days is highly evident by the responses to that. If you read the whole thing you can tell it's a hypothetical question rather than a statement.
How many PETA members do you know with any real education?
Yeah, terrorist organizations don't usually have very educated members.
I think I just lost a little more faith in future generations after reading those responses. And a few IQ points, too…
how has no one commented on the fact that it said
"I put my cat on a sealed box"
"I put my cat in a sealed box"
I'm glad someone besides myself noticed that mistake.
This is exactly the first thing I saw and was wondering before I even read the paragraph. I read some of the responses just to see if anyone else noticed that either and they didn't. And the question is stupid anyway. Even if the cat was IN the sealed box, if it's not dead from poison, it will soon be dead from lack of oxygen. Poorly written.
Why doesn't everyone know about this thought experiment. It is supper famous.
I'm convinced increasingly each day that I'm more likely to find to intelligent, thoughtful answers on 4chan than I am on any Yahoo! forum.
The cat is still alive, because if you only put it _on_ a sealed box it'll just go 'to hell with you' and leave.
It was changed now cat is in the box. But no more colorful answers.
i was asked to leave when i turned up as a volunteer on a photo shoot in support of PETA here in the UK wearing a t shirt that said
They have no idea about the real world or the hypothetical it seems
These people are stupid at a frightening level.
And supper is pretty famous.
Schrodinger's cat is my favourite action hero :)
I have an album about him on the Facebook. :D
