Psychic Pair Fail Scientific Test – BBC:

A scientific experiment has found that two mediums were unable to demonstrate that they had special psychic powers.

The test by researchers at Goldsmiths, University of London, tried to establish whether mediums could use psychic abilities to identify something about five unseen volunteers.

Take care, especially if you’re dealing with the aftermath of real storms, and eat all the chocolates you want. You deserve it. Here, have a promo for a horror movie about sushi chefs fighting sea monsters:
