RE: It's bugging me now
The Iron Maiden has been solved, I'm trying to grasp the other two.  

The physics thing could be Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle?  In effect, you can know a particle's location or its velocity - but not both.  Extrapolations from that get deep and broad, and are the basis for many a fun physics joke (the best one being from the horse race in Futurama).

I'm really wracking my brain trying to suss out this phrase you're after.  Sounds like a handy one.  

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

I once had a cat called Heisenberg, so named as nobody knew what gender it was.

Wikipedia's article on thought experiments has a list of examples of famous thought experiments, including Schrödinger's Cat and a ton of others, perhaps it's in the list somewhere?
