Grave Doubts

Psychics? We Thought You Said Physics

Two Welsh psychics have been given government funding to teach people how to "communicate with the dead". They will use the £4,500 to instruct people on how to contact friends and relatives "on the other side". The Welsh Assembly has launched an investigation.

FOOTNOTE: Dead reckoning.

The Welsh Assembly may be in need of some psychics to get to the bottom of the graves. ;-)

Don't know how it works Down Under, but these are the types of 'projects' that get tucked into a bill that is so thick that no one takes the time to read it before passing it.

I see dead people. Can I have money?

If those psychics come to Chicago they can learn how to teach the dead to vote!

Huh... well, that's a new one.
I want grant money for crazy projects too - I wonder what the secret is?

I have a few hair-brained ideas that I could sell those folk!

Janet said...

Kendris is right. That pales in comparison to some of the idiotic projects that get funded here in the U.S. They're hidden in the depths of budget bills and no one reads them.

Ah well, sounds just like Canada! People get grants for just about anything these days and it just seems criminal to use taxpayers' money for such ridiculous studies.
