Do You Have ESP?

    Continuing the discussion from 🎂The cupcake thread of celebrations.:

    How are we supposed to know that, now? We don't have ESP…

    First off, I believe that @dkf can only speak for himself when claiming lack of ESP. Thus, he must have been using the royal we. Claiming lack of ESP for others would be very rude, as how would he know unless they told him?

    @dkf: If you were using the plural we: shame on you!

    Now, to the point: In the interest of fair and honest communication, I think that everyone should add a post here indicating whether or not they have ESP.


  • mod

    As noted in the quote in the OP, I do not have ESP.


  • I survived the hour long Uno hand

    I do not have an ESP.

    I do have a Schecter and a Fender.



  • I do not have ESP.

    I do have ESPN.



  • My car definitely has ESP.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    How am I supposed to know if I have ESP? I don't have ESP!

    I don't have ESP.

    I don't have PES either.



  • Do you have Pez?

  • I survived the hour long Uno hand

    I have ESP, depending on your definition of S

    Spiny Monkey-Orange?


  • I survived the hour long Uno hand

    Yes, my perception is particularly spiny today :)



  • I think @Eldelshell is from ESP.



  • I don't know how to give these context, so I'll just write them down:

    Eggplant Salami Pizza
    Exceptionally Smelly Penis
    Excessive Semen Problem
    Excruciating Spleen Pain
    Esophageal Spinal Protuberance
    Extra Special Pizzazz
    Edible Strawberry Panties

    hmmm... why are so many of these body-horror?

    Effectively... Scratch... Pandas...

    OK, I'm done.

    @Bort said:

    Edible Strawberry Panties

    I might have those, too :)



  • Depends on which ISO code you're using.

    And that's a reply you'll only get in a place like this

    @Bort said:

    Eggplant Salami Pizza

    That could work

    @Bort said:

    Excruciating Spleen Pain

    ...you may want to see a doctor...

    otherwise known as @algorythmics unless i miss my guess.


  • mod

    You couldn't even but them in alphabetical order‽ Damn you!



  • If I have it, you would already know it.

    Wait...Something is coming through....Ahh, yes.

    ESP is about knowing the future, not being able to transmit and receive thoughts.

    Now all I have to do is figure out which of you didn't send that message, because that the person who knows.



  • Well I thought it was better like this. They are sorted in terms of "ranking", sorting them alphabetically would lose information.

    If you want to sort them just use @PythonBot and.. no wait, that one doesn't work, so just call @GLaDOS... nope, out of service too.

    The problem is that statement is so pedantic that it could have come from any of us.



  • Cars in Poland hardly ever have working air conditioning, much less ESP!



  • I've had several ESBs in the past. Not while posting, though you might think so given some of the things I've posted, but still.

    Oops, you said, 'P', not 'B'. I got confused, I must have thought this was the HomebrewTalk forum for a minute there. :sweat_smile:

    Well, I didn't send that message. Because the person who sent that message is full of shit. ESP includes:

    • Telepathy
    • Clairaudience
    • Clairvoyance
    • Precognition
    • Retrocognition

    Essentially, the ability to gain information via any means that does not require the use of the standard 5 senses.

    The term was first adopted by a Duke University psychologist, Joseph Banks Rhine.

    But it's wrong.



  • @abarker said:

    But it's wrong.

    We do that a lot, too.



  • All I can contribute is that I received the message. My assumption that it was from many was because of the volume and "echos".

    It would appear that one or more among you may be faking their pedantry...


  • Impossible Mission Players - A

    This unit's system includes interface capability for non-standard HID inputs, including digital communication though interfaced-interface hardware expansions. However, a driver must be provided for all non-standard HID connections, usually by the manufacturer of the device.

    This unit does not currently have such devices installed, or said devices are missing driver data required for operation.



  • I can perceive information that doesn't come from any sense. For example, through my memory.



  • @abarker said:

    Essentially, the ability to gain information via any means that does not require the use of the standard 5 senses ("sight, smell, sound, taste, touch").

    In this sense, I definitively do have ESP. Right now, I sense an overdose of warmth, neither by sight, nor by smell, nor by sound, nor by taste, nor by touch, but by the heat receptors in my skin.


  • I survived the hour long Uno hand

    It also ignores proprioception, whatever that sensation you get when you have too much CO2 in your bloodstream, that uncomfortable sensation some people get at the approach of low pressure fronts, muscle burn, and so many more "senses" that the basic 5 can't possibly explain.

    1. Equlibrioception
    2. Thermoception (as mentioned above)
    3. Nociception
    4. Hunger
    5. Respiratory rate control
    6. Salt level monitoring
    7. Chronoception

    And many more that I couldn't be bothered to fit into one to three words.

    Essentially, everybody has ESP, according to @abarker's incomplete definition of it. Non-traditional senses have feelings too.



  • @Placeholder said:

    proprioception

    This is one of my favorite words ever.

    It also let me coin a succinct phrase to describe, when you are driving, how well you know where the boundaries of your car are (something that was much more relevant to me when I had to park in a lot where there was often very very little maneuverability space): "vehicular proprioception," which I think also sounds pretty awesome. :smile:

    (It's not a perfect analogue as your vehicular proprioception is rooted in your sight, but it's close enough to be useful.)

    Extra Sex Please

    Request for ESP submitted



  • My request just got denied ....



  • Did you ask nicely?

    On a related matter: I overheard somebody saying that their partner has ESP, as every time he begins to even think about asking her for sex, she says no.



  • @loose said:

    Did you ask nicely?

    Did you notice where the P stands for?



  • I shall ignore the what's and where's (for the moment) and let others take up that challenge. I just wanted to say, without malice, that just because a "please" is used, you cannot assume it's a nice request. I have often noticed that a "please" is "thrown in" as if it is some sort of magic word that gets you want you want.



  • Definition 1: any sense (way to perceive external information) that humans don't generally have.

    Definition 2: an ability to perceive external information that defies the laws of physics

    If you want ESP of the first type, you can get a small magnet in your finger to feel magnetic fields. Or you can learn echolocation, or all other sorts of cool stuff.


  • sockdevs

    @anonymous234 said:

    echolocation

    Is just fancy hearing; hardly ESP
