Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida, Europe and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Quantum observations on "That darn cat!" #schrödingerscat - The creator of the paradox-inducing cat in question, Erwin Schrödinger, would be 126 today, which earns him both a Google Doodle as well as a funny video clip from 'The Big Bang Theory' explaining his famous paradox; @BigBang_CBS, @KaleyCuoco

I also suggest you do a search in Google Images for 'Schrödinger's cat'

A funnier description of the paradox is here...from the most-popular comedy show in America.



WikdGamer YouTube Channel video: Scene from CBS-TV's "The Big Bang Theory" in which Sheldon (Jim Parsons) tried to explain the paradox of 'Schrodinger's cat' to Penny (Kaley Cuoco) in order to scientifically relate her new dilemma in deciding whether or not to remain just friends with Sheldon's roommate, Leonard, or to actually date him but take the chance she'd lose him as a friend if things don't go well. The only way to know with certainty is to make a choice and proceed -and open the box (of possibilities) and see if the cat is dead or alive. Uploaded on October 6, 2011. http://youtu.be/pNTMYNj2Ulk

This is always great advice for procrastinators, esp. easily-bored, high-achieving kids who are used to getting good grades by pacing themselves and only applying themselves when they need to and often suffer from paralysis by analysis, or in my case, over-analysis..

And then there is also the variation of this paradox, a phenomenon Sheldon called "Schrodinger's Friendship."


The new season of The Big Bang Theory premieres Thursday September 26th at 8 p.m. Eastern

Today is also my middle niece's 21st birthday. Hooray!
She'll soon be back on campus in Charlottesville for her senior year at UVA - The University of Virginia.
She's not a paradox, but is very, very mathematical.
