In Philly, Salem, and now Britain, psychics are having a hard time.

In a new British Law, it will now be the job of "the medium, to prove they did not mislead, coerce or take advantage of any 'vulnerable' consumers." The law will require them to add disclaimers noting that their trade isn't guaranteed to work (Duh!).

Predictably, psychics are whining about having to actually take responsibility for what they sell. According to the article,
Carole McEntee-Taylor, a spiritualist healer in Essex, said having to stand up and describe the invoking of spirits as an [scientific] 'experiment' was forcing spiritualists to 'lie and deny our beliefs'. She added: 'No other religion has to do that.'
Well Carole, what other religions sell themselves offering phony and useless services (oh yeah, besides these frauds)?

But I will agree with them that it's not a scientific experiment when you refuse to look at the results and see just how poorly you do.

Doctors offices and hospitals don't have to have disclaimers posted.

Stange, since over 100,000 a year dies due to medical negligence, hospital mistakes and pharmaceutical errors combined.

I know, they killed my dad.
