What type of panzy soldering temperatures are you using. I always end up with cool molten solder splashes on the floor or singe marks on pants/socks/skin.

Burn it to the ground!

The box has to have a 1/100 chance to contain an actual alive and dead cat, that's the enticement to open the box. Cats can do just fine for at least a week or two in a box as long as it can breathe (at least in a closet, ask me how I know).

So your business must be mail-order only, signature delivery, and overnight shipping only to real address (not PO Box) to appease the tree-huggers. Then you put a 10 day warranty on mechanical defects of the possible cat inside to cover you legally. This way, the collector has about a week to decide.

To add to the value and make the politicians happy, you put an auto-open function on the box that automatically opens the box at a preset time from date of packaging at the factory... that way, the box becomes more valuable as the timer counts down. Your local ASPCA will have a machine that can defeat the auto-open feature for a $1k donation rendering the box permanently sealed forever.

If you want to get creative, offer a "Special-Special Limited Anniversary Edition" of only white kittens offered once a year to during Valentines Day, and an "Undead Zombie Attack" edition that may contain a feline-rabies infected adult male Bengal hybrid... for Halloween of course.

And you know how serious collector types are all closet weirdo's with social adjustment issues and actually subscribe to pay-**** websites instead of just using PornHub or Redtube like the rest of us... so... you need to offer "Pregnant Cat", "Hairless Cat", "Declawed Cat", and "Tattoo'd Cat" versions of you collectible box. All still 1/100 chance.

So what keeps me from X-raying the box to see if it has the toy? I'd buy a dozen and xray them all and see if I had a winner. Than sell the none winners at 90%market cost and then sell the garrunteed one at 1000% cost and win. Then go rent a tranny for a week.

Touche' I thought of that after I sent it. Heavy though.My other question is about collectibles. If being rare makes it collectible and more rare the better. Why can't I make something crafty here at home and then sell it as collectible. Some of these people will buy anything that says "collectible" on the box. Also it seems every collector is never going to open anything, so now the "it's new in the box" becomes a mute point.

So this is interesting. It's a Shrödinger's Cat simulator:

The inconsistent spelling of the man's name in the thread title and subsequent posts has been killing me.

It allows you to perform the experiment without killing a bunch of cats.

but without starting with a live cat that exists in two states, how does it replicate the theory?

How do you know that the underlying code doesn't simulate both states simultaneously, and then resolve them when the button is pressed?

How do you know the code is not running a computer hooked up to a box with a live cat in it?
