    Thousands, but you really should think one up for yourself. Just pick some everyday simple task (like frying an egg or tying your shoes) and figure out the dumbest, most complicated way possible to do it.

    Not Erwin's cat, I hope! Quantum indeterminancy should not be toyed with.

    Make the Scrödinger's cat experiment part of your machine and see what happens.
