    I'm not seeing any threads. What are people talking about?

    The one you just posted in. Oh, wait! If you can post in it you can see it. Problem solved. Hows that for tech support?

    Problem? What problem? Is there a problem with the thread? You know, other than me not seeing it.

    But that problem may be problematic if I'm not seeing the problem you're having a problem with.

    If it's a problem to see the problem thread, then does it cease to be a problem if you can't see it? But then since the question was whether I could see the thread, the fact I can't is itself a problem, no? When it's a problem determining whether the problem is in fact a problem, you know you have a problem.

    Seems we have a resurrection!
    Yes, but I do see a problem in your logic. But that in itself is problematic.

    Anybody see a dead-or-alive cat in here, assuming one is capable of observation, or one's name is Heisenburg?

    I don't think quantum mechanics apply here though Teddy. At least not in this thread.

    Heisenberg and Schrödinger get pulled over for speeding.

    The cop asks Heisenberg "Do you know how fast you were going?"

    Heisenberg replies, "No, but we know exactly where we are!"

    The officer looks at him confused and says "you were going 108 miles per hour!"

    Heisenberg throws his arms up and cries, "Great! Now we're lost!"

    The officer looks over the car and asks Schrödinger if the two men have anything in the trunk.

    "A cat," Schrödinger replies.

    The cop opens the trunk and yells "Hey! This cat is dead."

    Schrödinger angrily replies, "Well he is now."

    There is quantum mechanics in every thread.

    With a more disappointing finale than Seinfeld. Didn't do too bad as a Federation captain, though. Not sure about his investigative skills.

    So we now have Schrodinger's Thread, which is both visible and invisible at the same time, only choosing a state when it's observed. Most interesting.
