So I know that "Conciousness as the Fifth Force" gets a lot of hate around here, but hear me out, this is legit. So my mother always told me "A watched kettle never boils". The other day, I found this out to be true. Every morning (okay, sometimes it's the afternoon) I wake up and put on the kettle for some tea or coffee. I always fill it up to just above the "min" line. After I put it on, I go pull some clothes on, which takes around a minute or two, and by the time I come back the kettle will have boiled. Well, the other day everything went kind of crazy, because I got my clothes on first since it was kinda nippy (I had slept with the window open because, ironically, it was too warm the night before). So I was in the kitchen as the kettle boiled. So I sat and watched it, and waited. And waited, and waited, and waited. It took FOREVER to boil, I mean it must have been like at least 5 or 6 minutes, way longer then usual! So I got bored and I noticed there was some pasta sauce on my shirt so I went to change it and AS SOON AS I WALKED OUT OF THE ROOM (i.e. as soon as there was no longer an observer) - The kettle clicked. It had boiled, but only once I was no longer observing. Combine this with that fancy wave function collapsing quantum mechanics stuff that no-one really understands and I really don't see how anyone can dispute the fact. My conciousness stopped that kettle from boiling, there is no other explaination as to why it took SO LONG TO BOIL.
