Eh? Likely story. This makes me wonder if you're trying
to hide something.

Just where are you going with this line of questioning? I suspect
that you have a hidden agenda and are trying to make the
entire possibility of the preposterous notion that ESP-like
phenomena could have a scientific basis more plausible to
innocent readers unaware of your wiles. Enough trickery,
Damien!  Out with it.

What if one of your leading questions were to surreptitiously
get me to look at things differently. I think that that's what 
you're up to, and I for one am not about to be fooled. Enough
of the leading questions, all right?

Your subtle allusions to the so-called results of a few of many,
many countless experiments aren't getting past me, fellah.
