Wonder how the experiment would change when Photons are used instead of Electrons, and "someone is watching".

Seeing things like this makes me sick. I love Physics but hate that I waited so long to find an appreciation. I'll be 95 before I have a degree in Physics at the rate I am going.

There's a lot of stuff I studied that I would love to learn more about. There are some things that I almost wish I hadn't learned it's so friggin wacked out.

This effect was first exhibited with protons. Both have mass and exhibit wave-particle duality. I love this stuff. You can wet your whistle on "The Universe in a Nutshell" or "A Brief History of Time" but if anyone's really interested I suggest "The Elegant Universe" by Brian Greene. He's heavy on string theory but even the first few chapters of "basics" will blow your mind.

It's relative man... it's ALL relative.

ok, well before everyones minds blow up. the reason the electrons behaved differently when observed is because they have to be actively watched, kind of like using a camera with a flash. the flash changes the picture. its not like the electrons showed signs of intelligence. they should have included this in the video.

The watcing eye is a red herring. They are missing an unknown. I know this because I am dumb, and they are too clever to see it.

This is the basis of one of my favorite lines from Futurama: "No fair, you changed the outcome by measuring it!"
