Idea for an RRS show: psychic/paranormal phenomena
Hey all, hope this is the right place for this (if it's not I won't accuse you of deleting it!) but I wanted to suggest that the RRS take on psychic/paranormal claims in some future episode. I was watching the "sci"-fi channel (which is 99.999% fi and perhaps 00.001% "sci" as a general rule) and there were all these bullshit shows about faith healers, alien visitors, and hauntings. I've talked to a number of generally very sane, level-headed people who have claimed to have experienced paranormal phenomena: one woman said she'd lived in a "haunted" house back east; a man I once worked with said he'd seen an apparition, etc. Point is: there are SHITLOADS of these claims proliferating all over the place, from historic sites and obscure, out-of-the-way places and now, all over the internet. TV specials have PROFESSIONAL GHOST HUNTERS on them for chrissakes! So-called "mediums" con ridiculous numbers of the gullible into thinking that they ACTUALLY have "spirits" of long-dead people that talk to them. Now, I'm convinced that all of these phenomena have rational, logical explanations but I thought it'd be cool to see the RRS take them on.
