Nice design, but needs more glow in the dark ink.

So the cat is radioactive? Is that it? Or is there a reference I am missing?

I agree. This would be a great design to utilize a non-white glow in the dark element.

So I'm going to buy this shirt or I'm not — but I won't know which until it happens. Is that how this works?

The symbol at the bottom is for a biohazard, not radioactivity... boo.

This is clearly an upgraded version of Schrodinger's cat where the poison is simultaneously radioactive AND a bio-hazard, thus cutting out the additional component of a radioactive source. :D

Uh... So, it's not clear... Are there parts of this shirt that glow in the dark? If so, it would be nice to know what the glowing pattern is. If not, it would be nice to know why not?!? That's a no-brainier, isn't it?

Also, too bad about the wrong hazard symbol being used...

Schrodinger's Cat may or may not be radioactive. It depends on how you hold your eyes.

Depends on how you look at it, radioactive food would definitely be a bio-hazard to any cat. Except, perhaps, for Schrodinger's.

No, those are still two distinct hazard classes. A biohazard would be something that has biological waste, toxins, or microorganisms in it where as a radioactive substance emits radiation. The destructive mechanisms of these are entirely different. Are there substances which are both hazards. Possibly, I don't have an exhaustive knowledge of these hazard classes. radioactive blood or viruses perhaps?

I also am disappointed in the mislabeled dish hazard. Maybe there happens to be a biohazardous material that is fluorescent or something. Although I'd assume the hazard should be radioactive in order to linked to Schrodinger's cat.

I'm thinking the dish is full of tuna that swam a little too close to shore near a nuclear reactor leak. How much of that did the cat have to eat to glow ?

Agree! Would definitely buy if the design could be edited to use the trefoil symbol. Make it happen sebasebi!

The hypothetical cat is killed by poison, it's only the 50/50 chance of a radioactive particle decaying that releases it. So the design itself makes sense, the title maybe just confuses that a little.

Well put. In essence, a biohazard is something that is infectious, such as a viral or bacterial sample (yes, there are other materials that warrant the biohazard label, but they stem from this base definition), whereas a radiological hazard is something that produces ionizing radiation.

safyrejet wrote:Are there substances which are both hazards. Possibly, I don't have an exhaustive knowledge of these hazard classes. radioactive blood or viruses perhaps?



Yup, of course there are things that can be both. And your examples would both be examples of such things. If you have a biohazard, such as a virus or some bacteria, and irradiate it, the process of irradiating can make that biohazard radioactive (i.e. some of the atoms in the virus of bacteria have now become unstable isotopes and will decay, releasing more radiation in the process). Thus, your biohazard is now also a radiological hazard. Such things would receive both hazard labels, not just one.

I think it would have to be some kind of food that was laced with bioluminescent bacteria. In a sense, that's a better explanation of the glow than radioactivity, anyway, as the level of radiation need for something to literally be glowing from hazardous (i.e. ionizing) radioactivity would likely mean that the cat should be dead just from getting close that close to it...

I really want this shirt... but I hate cats. But i like Schrödinger (but probably because of how he treated cats..) what to do....

If it was glow ink, i'd have ordered it already. Just sayin'

Well, this is timely. My cat was just diagnosed with an hyperactive thyroid, and one of the possible treatments is to inject him with radioactive iodine. My wife & I have been joking about having a radioactive cat, and now this shirt shows up...

ginbak - OT but, what type of dog is that in your avatar? I ask because it's remarkably similar to one of mine, which is a Beagle/Australian Cattle Dog cross.

Yes... A yellow and magenta tri-foil would be more appropriate and cooler.

My first thought was "it's licking antifreeze" (poison!). Great detail on the cat but not a fan.

Well, if you look close, only the food, eyes, tongue and some fur glow.

So, since the only moist things are the glowing things, and since kitties tend to have dry paws, then we can deduce that it's not been raining recently.

Why make it rain on a radioactive kitty? So sad...

Here's to hoping the bots pull some WOOT PLUS deals on tanks before the spring is over...

Super cool design, but in the interests of geeky accuracy, that is a "biohazard" symbol NOT a "radioactive" symbol. I would call this cat infectious rather than isotopic.

The t-shirt blank is manufactured by Anvil. The unisex tank blank is by American Apparel.

For those of you wanting a glow-in-the-dark Schrodinger's Cat shirt instead, you'll find one at the turtle-y tee site.

One day surely. Though I think our normal un-zipperable totes have been by far more popular.
