Thanks for Nothing, "Psychics"

This poor kid, Adam Benhamma, has been missing since Sunday, April 3rd and is now presumed dead. Police think he likely fell in a river.

Benhamma was autistic and deaf which, police say, obviously complicated search efforts due to the child's inability to respond to calls from family and responders. It's a horribly tragic situation and I feel for the dad who just ducked inside for a second, apparently, while his seven year old daughter watched the three year old Adam.

So, if psychics are real (which they're not), this would have been the perfect opportunity to display their talents and save the life of a three year old special needs child. Surprise. They didn't.

If you think you're psychic, there's an easy answer: you're not. Win the lottery or shut the fuck up.

fine for someone to believe they are magic. fucking travesty when a police force spends public money on that shit - which as well as being no help finding anyone is also a false sense of hope to the gullible family that are in such a state they'll clutch at straws.

I know psychics exist because Eskimos have 200 words for snow and I took hallucinogens when I was 13

Are you sure you don't mean "psychotics"? :)

nope, hallucinogens

apparently, if I scrambled my brain while it was still developing as an early adolescent I'd be more open minded today

of course, whatever words northern aboriginal polysynthetic dialects have to describe snow is totally germaine to the veracity of psychic claims - because "western" science only sees it as snow
