Schrödinger's thermos

This steel thermos was once owned by the renowned theoretical bartender Marvin Schrödinger, who illustrated the problems of quantum alcoholism by training his cat to knock random drink ingredients into a thermos while he wasn't looking. The result is a situation wherein you can't determine what you're about to drink until you've already drunk it, thus collapsing the probability waveform of the cocktail into a single discrete eigenstate.

  • The premise of this item refers to Schrödinger's cat, a hypothetical quantum physics problem that involves macroscopic results set inside a sealed box. At the end of the time period, the odds for the cat in the box to be alive or dead are exactly equal, and the cat is therefore simultaneously alive and dead. The state of the cat inside the box is only resolved when it is opened (the box, not the cat); similarly, you don't know what's inside the thermos until you drink it.
