Hold on though. If I don't actually look at my coin (leave it spinning). Isn't my friend's coin still spinning? Can't we tell that statistically?

Let's say we're firing off entangled electrons. We have a splitter based on the spin of the electron. We redirect the split electron beam at the same target. If our friend is *not* measuring spin with his entangled stream, won't our beam interfere with itself? Won't that interference go away if our friend starts to measure?
