And here I was thinking: "Ah, Schrödinger's back. At least there's no box."

Ha! I love the intersection of physics and math humor.

Nice job, Nathan!

"..in a steel box I reside." oh man, Bon Jovi all day long. Well done writers.

Also, Stark - good point! It's seems logical perhaps that the creators of Arnold made his head shape from a Venn diagram.

Banner week for Nathan. A front page Reddit post http://www.reddit.com/r/funny/comments/1ayybc/hi_reddit_after_living_in_nyc_for_4_years_i/?sort=top and a Shirt.Woot print? Everything's coming up Milhouse... I mean, Nathan!

I'm Bryan. Nice to meet you, Wooter.

I like the sequel, but it's not as good as the original:

http://shirt.woot.com/offers/the-cat-in-the-box

That one will probably be my first shirt.woot purchase. I was hoping to get that during the last Wooting Off, but it was still $18 then.

Nicely done, sir.

p.s. Am i correct to infer from this that a cat's ears remain alive even after the rest of the cat dies?

Or doesn't that only apply to irradiated cat ears?

Haha! Ah, man - thanks so much - it was a trip to get so much feedback from the new series of NYC gifs. I plan to keep making them!

lulz. I took some liberty with ear placement.

I think we all do, when you think about it.

What happened to when the shirts weren't just internet or science geek memes (which i enjoy)and had more artistic quality? Seems like these all but disappeared when the "all design" change happened. I miss shirts like this http://shirt.woot.com/offers/the-birthplace-of-inspiration

Even though it would have messed with the symmetry of the design, a little white tail coming off the bottom circle would have made this an instabuy for me.

Circles work fine, for all we know Schrodinger put his hypothetical dead/alive cat with the poison and radioactive stuff in a giant hat box.

Oh hey, we had one of those not-internet-science-geek-meme ones just yesterday. And looking at the top 20 there's maybe 2 or 3 others I'd say that stand out as more artsy. But to be fair, I'd say all of the shirts on shirtwoot count as having artistic quality, considering that art and quality is in the eye of the beholder, it varies by the beholder.

So, Mr Pyle! Is it more exciting to be on Shirt Woot or The Huffington Post this week?

ya'know all this talk about dead or live makes me think they should've done a "Wanted" poster instead

This is such a coincidence... My "Cat in the Box" shirt has been in a hamper full of clean, wrinkled clothes so I haven't worn it in a while. I was feeling like Blue today, so I pulled it out, steamed it and put it on only to come to work and see this on Woot!

I guess that means I am destined to buy this shirt? I better get one before it sells out - don't want to temp fate.

I guess I'm too smart - all I see is that this cat is in an overlap between BOTH "ALIVE" and "DEAD." Is the cat supposed to be a zombie?

If there is an original, surely, it is this: http://shirt.woot.com/offers/schrodingers-cat

I smell a troll, but I'll bite:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schr%C3%B6dinger's_cat

The overlap in the Venn diagram represents the state, prior to observation, in which the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics implies that the cat is simultaneously alive and dead.

If it were a zombie, there'd be flesh missing and probably a crossbow-wielding maniac nearby.

Hm, at first I thought the shirt was merely communicating how cats, like viruses, are neither truly dead nor alive.
