I require something unambiguous. For example: lift stone number 12,234,222 in the Great Pyramid, you will find my name chiselled into the stone. Something that is not simply unlikely for the subject to have known, but something that was completely unknown by anyone.

In the case of this guy Stevenson's study of a Beirut boy, what that boy or his family should have known about the dead mechanic is of no relevance. What they could have known is what makes it a useless anecdote.
