Results: The Memeday Challenge

You’ve been waiting, no doubt, with eager, breathless anticipation since Tuesday for this moment to arrive. It’s time! Time to tear into this pile of hermetically sealed envelopes check my e-mail and answer the questions within!

TitanKT asked six questions and suggested I choose my three favorites.

What are you thankful for this year?
I’m thankful that I finally have dental insurance. Last night, I chomped down on a piece of turkey just so, and let’s just say that was not a pleasant experience.
What are you looking forward to as we progress through this holiday season?
What I’m really looking forward to is some time off. The travel, the snow, and the drinking of cocoa with my family will, of course, be a happy bonus.
Do you open presents Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Christmas Day. My parents allowed us children to open one gift onChristmas Eve as sort of a preview, but that doesn’t really count, since the main event was always the next morning. I wouldn’t be opposed to having the main event on Christmas Eve; I’ve just never done it that way.

Erik Rubright asks,

What started your love for Science?
I don’t think I can point to any one particular event. Even when I was a wee little child, I was fascinated by anything with pipes, wires,buttons or lights. I would not hesitate to take apart toys, tape recorders, and the like just to see how they worked. I think that’s the heart of science, a desire to discover how things work.
Is Schrödinger’scat dead or alive?
The widely accepted answer is "yes, until the cat’s state is measured." However, the thought experiment neglects to define one important detail: the volume of the sealed, impermeable box in which the experiment takes place. If the volume falls below a certain threshold, the cat will be found in the "dead" state at the end of the experiment, regardless of whether atomic decay triggers the mechanism.
Do you believe in quantum immortality?
It’s an interesting idea. Unfortunately, since we can’t (yet) detect, much less see into, parallel universes, there’s no way of testing it.
