This T-Shirt Simultaneously Exists and Does Not Exist

Today I was wearing my Schrödinger’s Cat1 t-shirt:

Schrodinger's Cat is DeadSchrodinger's Cat is Not Dead

Which somehow lead to me finding this hilariousness, which I totally needed to share with you:

    I love that shirt! I read the Wikipedia article even though I was somewhat familiar with the concept. I’d always heard the gunpowder version. I didn’t realize the original version used poison, which I’d expect to poison the observer once he did his observing.

    Also, the existence of a sequel would deterministically mean that Schrödinger’s cat survived the first experiment.

    Unless it was the illegitimate love child of Schrodinger’s cat, back for revenge (or not) on Schrodinger for putting its mommy or daddy cat into a box with poison!

    I didn’t think about it being a different cat. Shame on me for not thinking outside the box!
