    Don’t worry – Teddy Boy will do much better – you know what that bible says about the middle east.

    Actually, comets don’t do that at all.

    In the ONE that counts, we’re #1 by a factor five. Find out what it is?

    OK, so Obama hasn’t turned out to be much of a change from the previous adminsistration; at least he has one thing going for him that no other contender seems to have – at least he’s not a Clinton or a Bush.

    This really misses the point. In the box is a radioactive nucleus, which when it decays, releases cyanide that would kill the cat. After one half-life, there is a 50-50 chance it has decayed. Without opening the box, we can’t know if it has happened or not. The point of the thought experiment is to relate a quantum event to the non-quantum world.

    According to traditional quantum theory (the Copenhagen interpretation), until the measurement is made for a given atom there is no way to tell whether it will have decayed or not. In fact, according to quantum physics, you have to treat the atom as if it is in a superposition of states – both decayed and not decayed.

    Hugh Everett’s postulate implies that the entire universe (being a single isolated system) continuously exists in a superposition of multiple states (the Many Worlds Interpretation). There is no point where the wavefunction ever collapses within the universe, because that would imply that some portion of the universe doesn’t follow the Schroedinger wavefunction.

    In either case, the cat is theoretical, and no cats were harmed in this thought experiment.

    I think we need to just start sending huge e-mails filled with gibberish, by the millions each day. Soon they won’t be able to store it all, even compressed.

    That letter comes about as close to treason as I’ve ever seen. Perhaps Ronnie Raygun could do better, but….

    Beg to differ. I just finished reading “The God Delusion”. Compelling – at least much more so than the bible.

    They used to pay more than 0.01%

    If Iran using nukes is WWIII, Israel would end it in minutes. Europe had the 100 years war; Israel had the six-days war.
