were talking about the rules for the experiment here, In the post by UK Wizard did it say that shaking the box was forbidden? No it did not. Therefore we could collect telemetry from the box by shaking it and make a more educated determination the well being of said cat in the box. The rules of the experiment were simply that we cannot look into the box, there was no rule stating that we could not shake the box.
Otherwise without any observation one must assume that without any noise or vibration from the box that the cat must have died due to lack of any outward appearance. As anyone knows a cat in a box will tend to fight and make lots of noise especially in a environment so close in proximity to two different hazards IE the radioactive item and the cyanide. The cat would have been freaking out in there and so knowing this distinction about an animal in an enclosed space one can make the deduction that the cat must be dead because the box is still and there is no signs of struggle within the box.
Therefore my previous statement stands, Dude ain't too bright...

Give me his contact info and I will.
If the experiment started at 10am and the vile broke at 10:15am and I died soon after, even though you open the door at 11 does it mean that I was in a dual state of both being alive and dead for the past 45 minutes?"
