Bob encounters his nemesis, quantum physics.

Vital Statistics


Date: December 3, 2004

Category: Shorts

Appearing: Graham Stark, Paul Saunders

Editing: Graham Stark

Adapted from: Bob the Angry Flower by Steve Notley

Location: Graham's Parents' House


One of three shorts adapted from Bob the Angry Flower. Bob may have drunk all the beer in the fridge; he may not have. Until the fridge is opened, the number of beers drunk is indeterminate! The problem is that the wavefunction doesn't collapse no matter how much Bob observes.


  • This is a spoof of Schrodinger's Cat, a famous and important thought experiment posed to examine whether quantum mechanics makes sense at the level of everyday, classical physics.
  • Due to quantum tunneling there is a chance the beer is outside the fridge.
