Heisenberg's Principle In Action

So I love this! It seems one of those little monsters from the reality show Supernanny set fire to his house. In Supernanny, a British nanny goes in Mary Poppins on a house full of lord of the flies wannabes and tames them through stern discipline. On TV it always appears to work. Well in this particular case what the little guttersnipe actually learned is that when he acted out he got more attention. He played demon spawn for the cameras, and when the cameras went away he worse, finally turning into a little arsonist. It's Heisenberg's principle that that act of observation changes the object being observed in human form. And it proves that realty TV isn't.
