    Ugh. Schrodinger was mocking quantum physics with that thought experiment, yet somehow that cat is the go to description for the field.

    Then again, “Big Bang” was coined by someone mocking the concept as well; physics is weird with names sometimes.

    And the first comment below the linked article is a complaint about animal experimentation.
    I hope it’s in jest, but won’t hold my breath.

    Kinda late with this, Ophelia!

    @ Jacob : Yes, if was Sir Fred Hoyle who coined “Big Bang”. I found a copy of the book in which he pooh-poohed that at a spa some time ago … wish I’d sneaked it out.
