Princess Dis psychics. It seems Di consulted
with various psychics, astrologers and fortune tellers just
before her deadly crash, but none of them predicted her death.
The National Institute of Health receives a Flying
Pig for spending money to study how much pressure a
chiropractors thumbs exert on a spinal column. Randi says
it should have spent the cash answering one question: Does
chiropractic really work?

Guillen gets a Flying Pig Award for unquestioningly
supporting New Age notions, usually by booking New Age
celebrities to appear with him on camera.
And ABC-TV News receives a Flying Pig award for
reporting as fact outrageous claims like cold fusion,
ESP, magnetic therapy and other junk science.
