A: I’ve found out how to recycle air! It’s the best way!
B: I know how we can tell if Schrodinger’s cat is alive or not! Oh baby!
A: close the Windows! Now.
C: oh ok…*turns of the laptop*
A: I’m going to recycle the air…*starts running his hand around in circles*
C: awesome man! Let me recycle air too!
B: see…You can go “meaow” to the cat from the outside….
A and C: *recycling air vigorously*
B: …and if the cat replies, it’s alive!
Me: but what if the cat has fallen asleep?
B: oh….*an angry look comes on his face* no! This is a non-sleeping cat! It cannot sleep.
A: done! We’ve recycled our air! Breathe freely everyone! *and…..rushes to the bathroom*
B: my cat does not sleep…it’s alive…*muttering away*
