The Big Bang Theory has actually made Schrodinger's Cat fairly famous. Which is odd in and of itself. I could explain, but if you have seen the Big Bang Theory, it is redundant, and if you haven't it is too confusing. Suffice it to say, that until you open the Schrodinger's Box, the Cat is neither dead NOR alive. Or it is dead AND alive. In any case, until you observe it, it doesn't exist at all. Or it exists in two states simultaneously.
I told you it was a pain to explain.
But that does help explain why I think this is HIGH lar ious.
