This reminds me of a really funny joke by Steven Wright.  It goes something
like this:
"A few years ago I was reading some books on telekinesis and I decided to try
it at home.  I got in a comfortable position on my couch, and commenced
concentrating on my throw rug.  I sat there for three days.  The rug didn't
move an inch.  When I looked up, my house was gone."

Other than the above, I can't really think of anything intelligent to say on
the subject.  I'm far too tired.  G'night.
