metaschrodinger's worms: even when you open the box, they're both alive and dead!
It's a composting box...the middle should be generating decent heat, even in winter (I know our back yard setup does).
This should indeed be the case! Your wormies are just fine.
Schrodinger has them now.
I would have thought the same thing about the worms! I made that reference once at work and nobody got it. I felt like such a nerd trying to explain Schrödinger's Cat to my coworkers...
Don't worry - you are. Revel in the awesomeness of intellectual superiority.
i'm normally not even arsed trying to explain physics to my friends unless they mention it first.
You could also put an old blanket/tarp/plastic covering over the box to help out.
Don't use plastic. Or, if you do, make certain it's vented. Composting creates methane, as I'm sure you know. Trapping it can create SO many hazards, and it builds up quite a bit over a NW Washignton/SW B.C. winter.
The plastic was meant to keep the blanket from getting wet, I never said anything about tightly wrapping it. A loose cover helps lots. My grandfather did this with metal trash cans to store potatoes/onions/apples and they kept very well throughout winter on the back porch. I live near Seattle so I know the climate Jam is dealing with.
Well howdy, neighbor! I'm up on the border. Bellingham.
Has anyone yet mentioned that he should stop being.... difficult? C'mon, they're worms, not dragons.
NEVER try to explain Schrödinger's Cat to non-engineer/computer science people ... that way ... leads to the DARK SIDE ... and frustration. >.<
My kids thought it was a really cool concept. I think it's more along the lines of "ability to accept a new thought process" than a matter of field specialty or intellect.
My younger son, now thirteen, and having been introduced to the concept at 12, taped a piece of paper over the microwave window, put in a burrito, and turned it on, then claimed "Schrödinger would have loved this...the burrito is now cooked, cooking, frozen, or gone, and everything in between. Until I open the microwave."
It wasn't spot on, but I'll be stonkered if it wasn't about the funniest application of a novel concept I'd seen in this house, in a while.
The paper is still there, and we have "Schrödinger's Microwave", which NONE of the kids' friends get.
That is incredibly awesome. When my daughters are old enough, I hope they are as clever =)
Baahahahaa best idea ever!
My sister actually has a worm compost bin inside one of her kitchen cabinet.
Apparently the worms prefer to stay inside the box, even if you let the lid open. They don't feel like going away from their warm and moisty environment inside the compost bin...
I loved this page. The hand and face in the last three panels add a layer of emotional reveal that's wonderful.
Those Arrogant Worms. ;-)
Headline: "Vancouver Home Invasion. Arrogant Worms Stealthily Creep From Trojan Compost Bin." (Although, if they were really arrogant, they'd swashbuckle on the Saskatchewan.)
I have a tiny joint hallway between my garage door and my kitchen it is merely "technically" outside.
My question is... have you solved the mystery!? Are they still alive!? :O
You shouldn't mess around with quantum annelids, they could create dangerous...wormholes
All the worms lived! They also all died.
Actually it's hard to say, because they are so good at hiding that even when I DO open the box I can't actually figure out if any of them are alive. :/
