"Any two or more independent cables placed in close proximity will spontaneously entangle"

*Except* whilst being observed. So presumably some kind of quantum event where attempting to in some way measure the event, affects the event itself?

I'd previously, and presumably erroneously, blamed it on "cable elves", who, as we all know, only come out at night.
