The Demonstration Effect

PaulEberhardt on March 21, 2013

Hi everyone and, as usual, sorry for my lateness. I haven't yet given up on my Wednesday schedule, though. :/
The “demonstration effect” is a German colloquialism for the curious fact that everything, no matter how well it works when you're alone, tends to fail in the very moment you try to show it to someone else. I don't know if there is an exact English equivalent - I can't think of any at the moment, but that might as well be a variation of this same effect. ;)
There may be a reason too why Gundula keeps the enchanted wooden bowl in her living room. Most probably it's German TV.
Have a nice rest of the week, and thanks for reading and commenting!
