Quantum Cat

  1. Sep 26, 2007 #1
    Hypothetically if we were to say... Just a little joke amongst quantum physicists.

    "A cat always lands on its feet, toast always lands peanut butter side down.

    Would a cat with toast strapped to its back hover in a state of quantum indecision?"

    Only inside a potential box, and a little outside too.

    The cat would be in perpetual motion spinning around his back (the toast) forever, and will never hit the ground

    Maybe if you strapped the toast onto the cat before you buttered it. I wouldn't think you could put the toast on the cat unbuttered side down.
