  • A description of the cat problem and, yes, a dead/alive cat simulator is here. I love these things. The Monty Hall simulators keep me busy for hours.

  • Schroedinger, you should not have done that

    That "playing God" with a cat,

    Which, by the way, mister

    Belonged to your sister

    The next time please make it a rat.

    Said Schroedinger "poison is nifty

    To dispose of this cat, God is thrifty

    We can't tell if it died

    Till we all peer inside

    And the odds are at just that, 50/50."

    The cat in the box still has growth

    Or it's dead, and infested with sloth

    One should not get unnerved

    Till the cat is observed

    It's a superposition of both.

    So that is the way that you tell it

    Leave a cat in a box with a pellet

    Should the trigger let go

    The poison will flow

    And you'll know the cat's dead when you smell it.

    Said Schroedinger, "let Physics advance

    Though it might be kitty's last dance

    When we open the box

    Be prepared for some shocks

    But there's only a 50% chance."

    Said Schroedinger, "let's take a chance

    Though it might be kitty's last dance."

    "The poor cat," he then joked

    "is alive, or it's croaked"

    But you can't know these things in advance.

    Said Schroedinger," isn't this fun"

    Shot a cat in a box with a gun

    I'll be sure it survives

    'Cause the cat has nine lives

    And I'll only be using just one."
