I have to remind myself sometimes that there are people who do find this stuff taboo. Here in CA, the "fringe" stuff is pretty acceptable.
xkcd is an excellent webcomic, btw.
Psychic phenomena is considered by some to be about as accurate as the weather forecast or stock market predictions. You can study patterns over the long term and make predictions, go with your gut, or tap into a higher consciousness, whatever. In any of those will bring you a wide range of positive and negative hits. No one is 100% accurate because our brains just can't handle that much information.
