Poison vial... Bad hair Boris...

So, just put the Mop head in a box on the Ireland / Northern Ireland border, and leave him in there. If he hollers, break the vial.

In the meantime, you both are and are not a member nation of the EU.

Sorted.

       is the vial inside the box? he's so slippery...

       Yes. [+]   

       It’s philosophically interesting to experience the thought experiment from the point-if-view of the cat. Who is the necessary observer?

       [8th] are you insisting on the difficult ö, or will you accept the oe?
Frankx, Oct 03 2019
  

       Normally we insist on the "ö", but since [Ray] (being from the U.S.A.) is not even a native English speaker we are inclined on this occasion to be satisfied with the elided "oe".   

       It's the only thing standing between the idea and its much-deserved additional bun; "shut politicians in sealed boxes and poison them" ? What's not to like ?

       //What's not to like ?//   

       The fact that by the nature of the experiment only 'some' of them are actually poisoned?

       Ireland is an island so protecting EU trade is easy. To police trade between the EU and the UK within Ireland its just paperwork, like filling a VAT return. It's not hard. Keep up people.

       // only 'some' of them are actually poisoned? //   

       Yes, that would be a problem - except the boxes are completely sealed, so the default option of asphyxia then takes effect.   

       Either way, they're dead. You find out how they died at the post-mortem. But the "death" bit is the important aspect.

       He could just be hedgeing, then ...

       The last I checked, English doesn't have any silly dots over an o. That's something that Germans and Latin-speaking types and other weirdos do to sound like another vowel altogether. And we've been trying to keep those Latinos and other hire edjookated types at bay.   

       But here, I'll check all the bases...
RayfordSteele, Oct 03 2019
  

       Well, that project's certainly successful in congress ...   

       Prof. Schrödinger was, by birth, Austrian - a country where they speak a version of German.

       // The last I checked, English doesn't have any silly dots over an o. //   

       "coöperation". But that's a diaeresis (same as in "naïve"), whereas the same-looking dots in "Schrödinger" are an umlaut.

       Is that a silent semicolon? I've never heard (nor seen) one of those before!
Dub, Oct 04 2019
  

       That's a halfbakery translation of a phone character. The only non-silent semi-colon I can think of is in the link above...   

       Funny. I thought they all spoke Deutch.
