Everything I've ever read that scientists wrote about divining has debunked it as having no basis in
merit. Not withstanding, I have seen it done, done it myself, and believe in it still without
understanding how it is done. My wife sincerely thinks I have ESP because I would come in just
before she would open the door to call me for meals. I think that was just habit on my part and a
belief in my mental abilities on her part. <VBG>
