The Poison Test

Dr. Caroline Watt

This is Dr. Caroline Watt, the chair of the Koestler Parapsychology Unit at the University of Edinburgh, confirming that the stacks of cotton gauze are entirely opaque before blindfolding me and pouring three glasses of pink lemonade and one glass of drain cleaner. (Cue the danger music.)

Poison Glasses

The glasses were then freely rearranged by the adjudicators of the evening including, Dr. Richard Wiseman, and the Worshipful the Mayor and the Mayoress of the London Borough of Barnet.  (Pictured below.)

Our poison test is particularly convincing — because we use real poison!  There’s no cheating when Professor Watt’s on duty!
