Great myths of our time

I should go on Mythbusters, but maybe on a smaller budget. I mean, who needs to really know if a hugh-tensile rope snapping can cut a pig in half, or if sticking a stamp to a helicopter rotor will make it fly out of control (except bad novelists and worse screenwriters).

No, we need someone to investigate the real myths of modern living. And on that score I have started on my new quest.

Today: A watched kettle never boils.

Horseshit. Yes it does.

I stared at the damn thing for the full 90 seconds or so without blinking and it did indeed boil.

Next week: Does the Pope shit in the woods? Assuming I can get the restraining order lifted.
