E is for Extrasensory Perception (ESP)

PSYCHIC ~Sign~ parking signs palm reading gypsy tarotHas the phone ever rung and you knew who it was without looking at the caller id? Have you ever started humming a song to have someone else say "I was just thinking about that song!" Do you always know the winning lottery numbers before the drawing? Then you might be psychic! (And about that last one, please leave us your contact information below...)

ESP Testing CardsIn case you missed the memo, the term Extrasensory Perception (ESP) was coined by J.B. Rhine back in the 1930s. His buddy Karl Zener, the psychic researcher's Wizard of the Coast, developed the card game version of a psychic test, which they used to develop elaborate testing for psychic ability at Duke University. Eventually all that testing paved the way for Peter Venkman to hit on co-eds in Ghostbusters because the world has a fabulous logic like that.

Although no longer associated with Duke, The Rhine Research Center still exists in Durham. We will assume that you don't need to call ahead if you want to visit.
