If a tree falls in the forest...

Oh that saying if a tree falls in a forest and theres no one there to hear it does it still make a sound, I read that somewhere recently in a book now you got me thinking!
 
based on the whole schroedinger's cat theory, my guess would be that the answer is yes and no at the same time :D
 
Found it, it was in Gary Renards book "The Disappearence of the Universe" its an old riddle, and the answer in the book is that it doesnt make a sound because it needs a reciever to pick the sound waves up and if theres nobody there then it cant be heard, sound isnt sound till you hear it and the human ear is the reciever,,
 
oh i didn't see the attached cartoon when i first saw this post. scrap my previous comment :D

:sigh:

I originally needed something to post around the cartoon, which WAS the point of this thread... :eek:

Then TTE and LB went all like philosophical on me. It's not easy being a comedian these days... :sob:

Ahhhh....see it was the phiosophical part that started messing with my already tired mind. The cartoon I got but was lost from that point onward :eek:
 
it was all purely a mistake! all i saw was the text, and not the cartoon for some reason. i thought you wanted a lively debate :) [SIGN] i am innocent :panic: [/SIGN]

As someone who works in the legal profession, Nancy knows there is a huge difference between "not guilty" and "innocent". :)
