Psychics tested in a controlled environment, and guess what happened?!
What happens when you test a medium's supposed psychic powers in a controlled environment?

THEY FAIL!

Though you probably don't need to be psychic (pun intended) to have guessed it.

What also happens (again predictably) is that they lash out at the experiment, and at science in general.

Here's what one of the mediums had to say after failing (not quotes);

(the experiment) "doesn't prove a thing"

she needed to work face-to-face with people or to hear their voice, so that a connection could be established

"Psychic energy" was not likely to work in the setting created for the experiment

the experiment was designed to confirm the researchers' pre-conceptions - rather than examine the nature of her psychic ability

"Scientists are very closed-minded,"


I love how she said all this after the experiment, not before.

Here's the link to the article on BBC news.

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

Wait. We've predicted this to be true previous to the experiment. Does that mean... Shocking

I was REALLY hoping you was going to say that psychic farted out a unicorn when I clicked on this thread. Oh well, better luck next psychic...
