Why is everyone so cynical and sceptical these days?
Were you not aware that psychics aren't allowed to use their powers for personal gain (other than charging someone 20 quid for a few platitudes, of course).
As for faith-healing, it's simply a case of these things working better in a building where some pastor is reaping in the cash rather than one where doctors and nurses are desperately trying to keep people alive.
Alternative therapies definitely work! The last time I had a cold, a course of reiki and acupuncture sorted it out within a week.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
So, you are saying there are 0 faith healers working in hospitals? I guess that's true, I've never heard of a hospital employing faith healers but I don't think this is worded the way you meant it to be.

Those nasty aliens are up to it again, at least on my gaming notebook which is capable to run XCOM: ENEMY UNKNOWN. Old foes like floaters, mutons and not to forget the dreaded cyberdisk are all present.

I have a small presence on an AWS S3 Bucket and right now I'm working through the AWS SDK to control it with C#.Net. It's pretty slick, but I noticed a bucket I didn't recognize. Its name is aws-website-[My Site Name]-l9xvi It's configured as a public website. It only has a few simple pages that say "I [heart] Berlin". What the??? It should be hard to hack into an S3. It was made 20 days after I made my bucket in 2017. I mean it seems harmless and I can get rid of it, but I am as curious as baffled. Does anyone have a take on this? I'm sure I'll delete it at some point, but I figure that the "I [heart] Berlin" is a signature. There is a website "iHeartBerlin...", but that doesn't seem to be it. Any ideas???
Use broken glass...
Yeah, Stasi was my first thought as well. But it seems more subtle than that so I figured probably Mossad. There is a cryptic element to it though which reminded me of KGB protocols. Looking at it more closely though, there is some brute force technique which looks like NSA methods... I realize that it's worse than any off those. I think I figured out what organization is behind it. They are diabolical, all-pervasive worldwide in their quest for money and power and I doubt there is any security I can put in place to stop them. I'm looking at the face of pure unadulterated evil (or maybe greed). It's so subtle. It looks like a benign website template, but that's the danger of it. It is so subtle in its simplicity that I have no idea where its evil is really hidden. It was put there by AWS themselves to look like a convenient template to use for further web development, but I know, it's a trick. I would say that I won't get sucked in, but I'm afraid I am probably too late. I'm doomed.
