An informal PSI power challenge

#1  Postby tnjrp » Nov 29, 2010 12:43 pm

Ok, a bit of fun for a change but with the chance to show at least one skeptic the real power of the extrasensory perception...

Determine, without actually physically coming to my house, sneaking in and looking (or getting somebody else to do it), what is under my bed.

You may however use any ESP powers including but not limited to clairvoyance and telepathy.

In order to prevent cold reading, the only clue you'll get is that it's fairly sizeable and not trivially obvious, so no points will be awarded for the likes of "small stones", "balls of dog hair" or the like: you have to determine that one specific object.

Also, only one determination per psychic so as not everybody can just go through the dictionary and wait for a hit -- you'll have to do it in concert if that's the way you're gonna play it :tongue:

Same challenge goes for my bed - my bed at home, not my bed in Afghanistan. Single most prominent object (located between the stacks of porn ;) ) beneath my bed. Decent description required to show accuracy of "seeing".

I wouldn't advise going to my house and trying to peek underneath - my wife would probably not reload after emptying the first magazine, but I cannot promise anything. ;)

Does she pack a psycannon? If so, it's inadvisable to go near the house even in the spirit form, which would rule out testing for astral projection :shifty:

There's a monster. Like under every bed. Don't let your toes hang out over the edge.

My senses tell me there is a Bible under your bed. I could be wrong though, because sometimes my senses pick up readings from your neighbors instead, it wouldn't be that my powers just don't work.

Robot Monster - one of the 50 worst movies of all time. That's not what you have under your bed, you have a 10 speed racing bike under there. Its predominantly orange. And if I'm right that just demonstrates the behaviour of large numbers, no PSI required.

:naughty: It's not fair to use science (unless you count parapsychology as one, of course) to solve this!

Which is not to say your suggestion was correct tho.

I see it's time to take the wife to the range for training again - she's missing her targets.

:naughty: Then you are cheating! You're supposed to be using ESP, not just guessing at random.

No hits so far BTW, whatever the methods (or substances) peeps been using.

I don't mean to spoil it for everyone, but it's your wife's fold-away exercise machine. If you don't have a wife, then that explains why I got it wrong - my psychic powers were picking up on what your wife in another life would have under your bed. I'm still going to count it as a hit though, because if you don't have a wife then I predict that you don't have an exercise machine under your bed (unless you don't have a wife but do have an exercise machine, in which case my initial guess was correct enough and it's a hit).
