DEAN BRADSHAW, Master of Brevity

Here's a good one, from the year 2000.


Description of Device: A device which mysteriously attracts dia-magnetic materials such as gold, copper, and glass. Defies scientific description.

-Dean Bradshaw


================================================== ===

Dear Mr. Bradshaw,

We have received your application for status of claimant. In order for us to arrange a test of your claim we require a more specific description of your claim. A "device which mysteriously attracts materials..." is not specific enough. Any object attracts other objects. That's called gravity. If you could be more specific about your claim we can then better understand how to test it (or if it's testable).

Thank You,

Andrew Harter, Lecturer



We received no response from this applicant, and his file was closed accordingly.
