Schrodinger’s cat walked into a bar… and didn’t.
But jokes aside… be it death by poison or (as Einstein would prefer) by explosion, Schrodinger’s cat tells us of something important: when you lose your car keys, take solace in the fact that they can literally be anywhere (well…). Ironically, Schrodinger himself meant the the whole thought experiment as a proof of quantum mechanics’s absurdity.
He failed so hard that his very proof was popularized as a way for beginners to understand QM.
