Schrodinger's Tat [Science Tattoo]

schrodinger.jpgBerg writes, “I’m a big fan of quantum mechanics (regardless of how little I truly understand it), so getting a tattoo of Schrodinger’s cat seemed like a no-brainer. It’s on my right forearm, which means it ends up being a good conversation starter after a quick handshake. Either people get what it is right away, or I have the pleasure of explaining ‘No, it’s not two cats fornicating, it’s one superpositioned cat,’ which is fun in its own right. Huzzah!”

    Um, like Occam, even as a Schroedinger fan I wouldn’t have gone there. Would’ve gone right to the fornicating. Unless at a physics conference, perhaps.

    But then physicists have strange sense of humor and would probably have just made two cats fornicating, which they’d explain as Schroedinger’s cat, then giggled secretly about as they got others to believe their cats fornicating was a symbol of their genius. And it would be, but only for getting people to think two cats fornicating is the best thing ever.

    At least that’s how I would play it.

  2. Wouldn’t it be good if we could get tattoos that only collapsed when others looked at them? Schroedinger’s Tattoo.

    I don’t like tattoos at all, but this could be the next step to a halfway tattoo idea (unless you use those non permanent ones). Can’t add any comment pic with this comment to aid my idea here, but will try next time! Lol!

  3. Here is another twist you can add to your explanation. A self-fornicating cat. Is it gay or not? It’s not certain, nor is it’s gender.

  4. ok, I admit, the explanation is cool. I have also read the wikipedia page you link to. However, the tattoo sucks. No offence. It is ugly, how deep and clever its meaning may be, it has no style, no beauty at all.

  5. It would be more fun if it were a temporary tattoo which appears somedays on the right and somedays on the left arm. That way people can wonder which universe they’re in.
