As a reputable Internet Scientist, I have decided to test the theory that a watched pot will never boil.
For this experiment I will watch a pot and attempt to determine whether or not it boils.
I am staring at the pot.
Okay, the pot has boiled.
Conclusion: Watched pots do, in fact, boil.
You’re welcome, Internet.
