I read of an experiment in which people actually timed how long it took water to boil, if it was watched and not watched. The results were that indeed watched water boiled faster. Now at first this blew my mind because I can't believe no one had tried it before, or maybe they have it was just the first time the people in the article had done it, who knows. Anyway, if this is true, are quantum effects at work here, or is this post just stupid? Please be kind if the latter is the case.
