    Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the easiest factor to take into accout of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about concerns that they just do not understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , other folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    In 1966, Cleve Backster, a former interrogator for the CIA and a leading authority on lie detection, conducted experiments in plant ESP, using polygraph, or lie-detector, to measure the galvanic skin reflex (GSR)...and the plants responded.. even could seemed to be able to tell when the people around them were lying...

    Studies were done with plants, shrubs and small trees, by hooking up electrical sensors to many different plant's leaves they could measure the electrical currents in the plants...They setup a test..

    They had some people come into the green house and water the plants and talk to them nicely, praise them, and say kind words to them, play music, and wipe their leafs down with damp sponges and the plants reacted one way...

    Then they had other people walk into the green house and rip the leafs, and burn the leafs, and yell and curse at the plants, and they reacted another way...

    It reached the point where the plants would react as soon as the people entered the green house...the pants seemed to know if they for the nice, or the bad people..The plants nearest first reacted, then a wave moved across the green house....the plants were communicating here comes the nice people, or here comes the bad people..

    Maybe we just need a bunch of plants at our Air Ports security stations..hooked up to each passenger passes by, we check the plants reaction to them on the polygraph..If the plants say you are a bad do not get on the plane..
