The Universal Theorem of Download Speed…


“Any download speed will invariably enter a monotonically decreasing function the moment the ‘Downloads’ window falls under the gaze of a human eye or any other similar observational means. This monotonic decrease will continue for as long as the observation exists. The behavior of the speed once the means of observation have been removed is undefined. (However, should the window be observed once again at some point in the future it is often noted that the speed is considerably higher than what it was when the observation was ceased. This would obviously lead one to conclude that this characteristic decrease is only present when the window is under observation and not otherwise.)”

I might also like to add that despite the overwhelming empirical evidence that lends support to this theory, no rigid proof has been devised as yet. Thus, it is prudent to note that this is not a ‘theorem’ in the rigorous mathematical sense of the term but rather, merely a conjecture. A handsome—though unspecified—prize is on offer for the first person to either offer solid proof of the argument mentioned in the theorem above or provide a clear demonstration of the inverse. (At the risk of repeating myself, the latter is considered, by the scientific community worldwide, to be, for all intents and purposes, impossible.)

hmmmm...true...i cant substantiate your theory with concrete proof but would like to make an addendum...
the effect is much more magnified when the connection speeds are slower (especially noticeable in case of dial-ups!)

so you back to downloading porn now? :) yeah anyway this would be regarding my blog. Since i remember reading a post of urs on effective blogging, could you check my blog and provide honest feedback? You could rip it apart if it sucks. 2 reasons for me asking u to do it:
1) I think u write well.
2) I think u are funny.

This sounds more like Heisenberg's Principle of Uncertainty in the context of internet downloads.

Grandmothers all over the world have something similar proven since aeons and the wisdom has been passed along generations in the form of the popular idiom, "A watched pot never boils."

If only they were as tech savvy back in the ages...

@Sarika: ...and I would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for that pesky observation of yours!
