Re: Cats are neither a solid nor a liquid.
Can a cat be poured into two separate containers at the same time?
"Quantum superpositions of distinct coherent states in a single-mode harmonic oscillator, known as "cat states", have been an elegant demonstration of Schrodinger's famous cat paradox. Here, we realize a two-mode cat state of electromagnetic fields in two microwave cavities bridged by a superconducting artificial atom, which can also be viewed as an entangled pair of single-cavity cat states. We present full quantum state tomography of this complex cat state over a Hilbert space exceeding 100 dimensions via quantum non-demolition measurements of the joint photon number parity. The ability to manipulate such multi-cavity quantum states paves the way for logical operations between redundantly encoded qubits for fault-tolerant quantum computation and communication. "

Surely it just lights up. So potentially, heat-haze.

Never! unless there is a point in a point and click where you literally have to try everything with everything else until some ridiculous pun emerges, it's not a point and click.
Also, the 3d interface was annoying. Ask me about how Grim Fandango was the beginning of the end.

More likely it would photograph your household items so that Amazon could say: "We noticed that you have these items, would you like to buy more of them, exactly the same?"
We noticed your Roomba just broke one of these, would you like to buy another?
Re: "as much value as a truckload of dead rats in a tampon factory"
As no-one else seems to have noticed, I'll point out that it's actually a quote from the very aptly named film, "Top Secret"
Nick: Listen to me, Hillary. I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist, only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island, who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground.
Hillary: I know. It all sounds like some bad movie.
[Long pause. Both look at camera]
Yes, I can understand.

Re: The right process - and no, not just for DracoCorp
I'd forgotten about the sim. The requirement for surgery and/or a trusted friend would be a serious impediment to switching provider...
Don't you need to press and hold the restart button by inserting a stylus into a convenient orifice for thirty seconds and pressing the stud behind your ear? (or is that just for DracoCorp augs?)

Re: Fat-Burning Hats
Then it's probably best that the hat comes with a big furry jacket to optimize performance... (optional extra, POA.)
Re: Fat-Burning Hats
Shouldn't be too hard- you burn a lot of energy regulating your temperature, and the head is one of the places that looses most heat, so shave the head, mount a refrigeration unit in the hat, and Bingo, weight loss.
Also, a big heavy hat will mean you burn more energy carrying it around and strengthen core muscles trying to stay upright with a fridge on the head.
The deluxe model can have a couple of slots to insert beers, for relaxing after a heavy hat wearing session.
You could even recover some energy with a peliter effect layer between the scalp and the refrigeration unit, and potentially combine it with one of those neoprene belts, redirecting the extracted heat into the belly where it can raise the core temperature, requiring more heat loss through the head.
Perpetual motion, until you run out of fat. Or collapse under the weight. Whichever.

Teleport the sun hundreds of light years away. If the earth immediately continues in a straight line, then gravity is instantaneous action at a distance. If it continues in orbit until the last light reaches earth, then gravity is transmited at the speed of light.
Not an easy experiment, I agree.
