Schrödinger’s Diary

Schrödinger’s Diary

October 15th, 1935

Have resolved that the best way to demonstrate my problems with the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics is by putting animals in boxes. Went to Homebase and bought a box.

Put a goose in the box but the bastard kept spoiling it. “Is it alive or dead?”, I asked Agatha, my housemaid, with a quizzical look on my face and stroking my beard thoughtfully. Her reply was devastating. “It is clearly alive Herr Schrödinger. I can hear it honking”.

Could not get a cow in the box.

Managed to source an alpaca but they are uncooperative, willful creatures and poo a lot. Was able to get it in the box only if I got in with it, which defeats the object. Spent most of today cleaning alpaca poo out of the box.

October 19th, 1935

Got a chicken in the box but I closed the lid too quickly and accidentally killed it, invalidating the experiment. Had a lovely dinner today.

October 20th, 1935

Day off. Went to Homebase to look at glueless laminate flooring.

October 21st, 1935

Finally some success! Got a cat in the box. I have completely forgotten why I started doing this.
