I asked John Clark a little while back if he'd 
list the major psi experiments that are faulty, 
and the evidence against them. He declined on the 
grounds that he wouldn't waste his time reading 
such rubbish. I now pose the same question to Sondre and Jef.

(There is no lack of peer-reviewed papers 
available on the web, in the midst of a deluge of 
insane "psychic" and "astrological" crap. And of 
course there was the May/McMoneagle remote 
viewing exercise cited in that TV program, 
repeated tomorrow night according to PJ, which I 
assume nobody here watched because everyone knows 
in advance that it's all MEGA BULLSHIT.)
