    I wanted to teach my kids the “Uncertainty Principal.” And I had a small box, a Geiger counter and a bit of radioactive substance. I got some Hydrochloric acid. With a bit of tinkering and I had my own Schrödinger’s Cat Box.

    Now I only needed a cat!

    Even though my cat "Peter" volunteered for this experiment I felt bad. He was still alive at the end, don't worry.
    But it was freaky there for a while when the lid was closed and he was both alive and dead.

    But my kids learned so much about physics.

    What we need is a Schrodinger's Litter Box. Unless you're fool enough to open the lid, it never needs emptying.

    I remember seeing Megadeth back in 1988. Front row, baby. It's good to be big and strong in a general admission situation.

    P.S. Could you email them to me?

    Yeah, I'm tiny and that sucks. Some big asshole got in front of me last time I was at the house of blues and then well, I started a fight and got kicked out but HEY, fuck that guy.

    Well the mistake those scientists made is in thinking they could get a cat to do something it didn't want to. You can buy a basket and expect the cat to sleep in it. But it won't! And yet the cat will quite happily kip on your expensive new kashmir sweater or Megadeth tee-shirt.

    That's probably why cats are the idea creature with which to demonstrate the Uncertainty Principle. And will continue to be the animal of choice for all discerning quantum physicist's
