Right, and that would be easy for you because you'd have at hand:
"One hundred Cornell undergraduates, 50 women and 50 men... recruited...
using the Psychology Department’s automated online sign-up system."
And a lab suitable for running your computer trials. This is obviously
doable, since Prof. Bem offers to make his code available.

The hilarious thing about this mantra of yours is that *you* are just
some guy who typed some stuff, again and again.
Now, we happen to know that you are a pretty sharp cookie, but you have
offered zero experimental rebuttal of any of the evidence provided by
Bem and others; indeed, you have refused to read that evidence. Until
you do something more interesting than being some guy who typed some
stuff, your impact (on this topic) should be entirely inconsequential.
