Leaving a brain shaped whole in the middle of the conversation

Back in the day, the US gubmint funded a defence program called Stargate. Not to disappoint Richard Dean Anderson fans, but it's not that Stargate. It's psychic warfare type stuff.
The Stargate program focussed on remote viewing and a few other bits and bobs all united by the common theme that it doesn't fucking work.

These people are nuts. How it it that no one notices? The leap from Stargate to these loons is so small that it could be achieved by an one-legged 90 year old with a zimmer frame and arthritis.
