    Hi Steve,

    Well there's an answer to that one: the temperature of the food should not
    quantized but should remain a classical variable (that is, non-evasively
    and having a continuous range).

    I see you have paid attention during physics class too, I don't think many
    know about Schroedinger's cat paradox. Cheers again for that!
