       How would you handle the problem of reservations ? Until you go round and open the capsules, you don't know how many guests you've actually got that night.   

       That could be very difficult. Or embarrassing. Or fun. Or, most likely, a mixture of all three ...

       You just keep adding capsules.

       What's confused me about Schrödinger - he's created an example of what is a mystery for him, the observer, but I, the client (victim?) and/or the cat know perfectly well whether we're alive.

       Wigner’s friend’s hostel - The superposition of live and murdered guests depends on an ever widening succession of peeping Toms. Adds layer(s) of creepiness to the original Schrödinger's capsule hotel.   

       Meanwhile outside and considerably down a hot, dusty 2 lane road, the philosophy of it all has been the subject of continuous discussion for 80 years among the forced mental laborers of the von Neumann chain gang.
