      Announcer: And it's a dead heat. They're checking the electron microscope. And the winner is... number 3, in a quantum finish.
      Prof. Farnsworth: No fair! You changed the outcome by measuring it.

      This is a very clever joke. According to quantum mechanics (specifically, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle), one cannot measure the exact location of sub-atomic particles because the act of measuring the particle would be enough to change the position and momentum of that particle, therefore making the measurement itself useless.
