I would like to think that this was a joke – but it’s been reported in Pravda – so it must be true. Remind me not to get too close to Dr. Speransky and his colleagues. I’m not convinced that he has my best welfare at heart.
Dr. Speransky has been in the news before. Improbable Research reports that he was mentioned in a paper on parapsychology a decade ago, when he was studying "anomalous communications" (read: ESP) in white mice.
