She’s a Princess AND a Psychic

Why is it that royal families seem to be particularly afflicted with thoughtless credulity?
Norway's Princess Märtha Louise, daughter of King Harald and Queen Sonja, has emerged as a clairvoyant, and is launching an alternative school aimed at training students to contact angels. Officials at the Royal Palace won’t comment on the princess' latest business venture.

She has a website, but it’s in Norwegian, which – despite my SCA persona – I am completely unable to read.

According to the news article, though, “Courses will be offered twice a week over three years, at a cost of NOK 12,000 per half-year. Students are obligated to sign up for at least one year at a time.” I’m not sure how much that is in dollars, but I’m confident that it’s money wasted.

Yeah... you can't teach someone to be clairvoyant. That's like trying to teach someone to see. It's instinctive. It's either there or it isn't.
