i will never not reblog this post
To simulate Schrödinger’s iconic cat, I hand-stitched a set of stuffed toy cats, with half of the cats given “alive” faces while the other half were portrayed as “dead.” I also painted and decorated 8 identical boxes, then signed and numbered them on the bottom. I then mixed up the numbered boxes, and tasked my minions with distributing the cats among the boxes while I was out of the room. The boxes were then “sealed” with shiny, candy-apple-red ribbons that beg to be untied. (The ribbons have been knotted and stitched at the bow, to prevent accidental unsealing.) Because of this process, no-one knows exactly which cat is in which box; you are guaranteed to receive one cat from this set, but there is no way of knowing which is which. You may apply your preferred theory of quantum physics to your cat’s state… until the shiny, tempting box is opened and its mysterious contents revealed for good or ill.

Check out this awesome Giant Spirograph! It was created by Nathan, who runs the DIY craft website HaHa Bird. Nathan’s oversized wooden version of the classic drawing toy measures eight feet across and uses sidewalk chalk to create those wonderfully familiar geometric patters on the pavement.
"The idea for this project came about at a craft show in December when a friend of mine had a little trouble with a laser-cut Spirograph we found. I teased her about her apparent lack of fine motor skills, then had the idea to make a Spirograph that only required gross motor skills. How big could I make a Spirograph?"
The project took Nathan about 6 months and cost roughly $150 to complete.
