Humor is an interesting thing, it is the ultimate Schrodinger’s cat when in any social interaction between two or more people.  Or is it possible that all our interactions and long conversations are a Schrodinger’s cat where they can lead to any direction?  The possibilities of this article alone are infinite, however, I can only choose one.  If you would like a different version of this article, please make your way into an alternate universe.  The Schrodinger’s cat theory states roughly that you can only reveal whether the cat is alive or dead by opening the box it is both in a state of being alive and dead until you do so.  The very small issue, is the idea of perceiving the cat is alive or dead before and sometimes even after opening the box.  Stoic-ness or honor I find have too large an influence upon people but this can create issues where one person may hypothetically call out before they open the box that the cat is dead and open it to find it alive.  Some may hypothetically say “I was wrong, the cat is alive.”  Others may say “I was correct, the cat is dead,” and close the box and keep others from finding the alive cat.  Yet others may kill the cat themselves before showing everyone else that it is dead.  I will now cover each of these by that of most destructive.  The first option impacts the observer of the cat most negatively where his audience may hold him against his own word even though the Observer had no idea on the state of the cat before he had opened the box, eventually they would all forget about the legitimacy of the observer’s previous statements and would enjoy their new cat.  The second option would be toxic with long-term effects for everyone.  The observer if the cat were found alive would be questioned and possibly persecuted for his intentions of hiding the cat’s state of life.  If accepted, the cat could get hurt itself if perhaps they were to ceremoniously lay it to rest.  If accepted then put upon inspection a long ways ahead, the new information that the hypothetical cat was alive would cause both the previous statement and a large amount of conflict would happen among the audience where some will accept that the cat is alive where others like the original observer may still consider it dead because they don’t want to accept they are wrong.  The third option affects the cat and the advancement of the audience.  If the cat was alive, but the observer killed it, we may never know of other fluffy, cute cats that lowers depression.  All of this because the observer didn’t want his lie to be found.  We can prevent any of these, however, by looking ourselves.  Others may have agendas that may want to hide cats from you, but you have to find out for yourself for the actual truth.  Question everything, and when you do, don’t let others steer you away from what you find and don’t deny it because whether you like it or not, the cat is either alive or dead and depends upon whichever you find.  To end, I would like to tell you that there may be print on the inside of next month’s newspaper, or maybe there isn’t, you just have to open it.
