Default Recreational Telepathy


Because of the increased price of soft toys, it is now more difficult than ever to obtiain the larger models to satisfy the playful appetites of our young.

Ever increasing costs of foam and fur, are the main problems. These would always drive up the prices of soft toys, even when the recession has not dug its teeth in to your wallet. Gordon Brown confirmed this during his time as chancellor.

A wild alternative to playing with plush pals, would be some recreational telepathy. Your child may grizzle at you for suggesting this, but give them a big hug and tell them to be grateful.

Recreational telepathy, put crudely, is mind reading for fun. For example, this whole text is actually an illustration of recreational telepathy: Think of an animal.

Were you thinking of a bear?

Yes I was. Although not overly surprising really; 'grizzle' may be a step too far.

You know, I actually tried something similar to what you're attempting in this. Though this might be an old thread. I wrote a story in fact attempting the same thing. Inspired by a magician I saw on youtube.

I agree with Bad Eddie though, Grizzle might be a bit too obvious.

Not many have read my story though and no one has read it till the end, so I don't know if I was successful.

How effective is this stuff, really? Do you have any statistics you came across on how effective it is?
