There are plenty of people out there who claim they have all sorts of POWERS . . . from seeing the future to telekinesis.
And if ANY of them could just prove it, they could take home a nice little stack of cash. You know, before they get thrown in a windowless van and taken in for experiments for the rest of their life.
The Center for Inquiry Los Angeles has been running a contestfor a few years called the Paranormal Challenge, and the rules are simple: If you can prove you have a superpower, you'll win $250,000.
They say they've had tons of people from all over the world apply saying they have an ability that can't be explained by science . . . but so far, no one's been able to prove their ability.
There's a running listonline of the people who've attempted the challenge. Some recent ones were a telepath who said he could project images into people's heads . . . and a man who said he could make a top spin in strange ways on a table.
And even though they failed to prove their abilities like everyone else, everyone who enters does have one thing in common, according to the organizers. Quote, "100% of the people we've tested completely believe in their own ability."
