MARIE HAS SUPERPOWERS O.O

We hooked electrodes up to Paige and Marie and poked them with the poker tool beginning with the foot, then the leg, then the arm, and then the head.

 

TRIAL 1 – Marie

 

Foot:

Neural delay: .11 seconds

Muscle delay: .06 seconds

Response time: .17 seconds

 

Leg:           

            Neural delay: .10 second

            Muscle delay: .03 seconds

            Response time: .13 seconds

Arm:

            Neural delay: FLAWED ATTEMPT

            Muscle delay:

            Response time:

Head:

            Neural delay: .02 seconds 

            Muscle delay: .04 seconds 

            Response time: .06

 

TRIAL 2 – Marie

 

Foot:

            Neural delay: 0.28 seconds 

            Muscle delay: 0.04 seconds 

            Response time: 0.32 seconds

            Neural delay: 0.15 seconds 

            Muscle delay: 0.05 seconds 

            Response time: 0.2

 

Arm:

TRIAL 1 – Paige

 

Foot:

Neural delay: 0.23 seconds 

Muscle delay: 0.1 seconds

Response time: 0.33 seconds

 

Leg:           

            Neural delay: 0.19 seconds 

            Muscle delay: 0.06 seconds 

            Response time: 0.25 seconds

Arm:

            Neural delay: 0.17 seconds

            Muscle delay: 0.05 seconds

            Response time: 0.22 seconds

Head:

            Neural delay: 0.15 seconds

            Muscle delay: 0.33 seconds 

            Response time: 0.48 seconds

 

TRIAL 2 – Paige

 

Foot:

Neural delay: 0.15 seconds 

Muscle delay: 0.04 seconds 

Response time: 0.19 seconds

 

Leg:           

            Neural delay: 0.3 seconds 

            Muscle delay: 0.08 seconds

            Response time: 0.38 seconds

Arm:

            Neural delay: 0.19 seconds

            Muscle delay: 0.07 seconds 

            Response time: 0.28 seconds

Head:

Neural delay: 0.02 seconds

            Muscle delay: 0.06 seconds 

            Response time: 0.08 seconds

 

Our hypothesis was that the closer we poked the test subject to their arm (the place where the electrodes were), the faster their response time would be. Based on our current observations, this appears to be correct.

Marie also has superpowers because in these results and in subsequent tests (data not published here), Marie responded at almost the exact same time as poked, leading to almost zero reaction time.. This leads us to belive that she could possibly have extrasensory perception, as there is no other explanation; she did not hear anybody coming and we did not give her the opporunity to anticipate it.
