Are You Psychic?

If so, what am I thinking?

Also, what was the reason for this thread?

You are thinking that you are bored and thought it might be fun to post something absurd.

Are You Psychic?


I, like the rest of humanity, can predict the outcome of a coin toss about half of the time; the roll of a single die, about 16.66% of the time. On poker hands, I'm not as good, I can accurately predict a given poker hand about one time out of every 31,187,520 tries. (there are 52 ways the first card can show up, 51 for the second, 50-the third----etc. Soooooo .......... [52 x 51 x 50 x 49 x 48] = the odds of predicting a poker hand out of a fair deck of 52 cards. I got an "A" in Probability and Sadistics. (as the course was commonly called).

I have been a fan of Houdini's for a while. As is fairly well known he and his wife set up code words before their deaths. When a pseudo psychic would show up at the door claiming to have "a message from beyond the grave", she, (since Harry died first) would ask, "What was the first word?"- no one ever got it right.

There are no true psychics, just a lot of psychotics.

Yes.

Reading your mind has nothing to do with being psychic.

I would not want to be able to read the minds of 99.99999% of the population anyway.

As to the reason for this thread, how about we open a dictionary and take out every descriptive word there is and begin with the letter "A."

That should occupy one's time enough to stop silly questions such as this thread.

Oh wow, a vocabulary without adjectives, would make for boring reading.

I can't recall anybody that posts here claiming to be psychic

I would suppose that why there were so few replies.

No, well actually, yes, but with the number that make assumptions as to your intent when making posts, it would seem that they believe themselves to be.

But that is not the point.

Probably more replies than there should have been.
