Go into the street with a pack of playing cards and a clipboard. Tell passers-by that you’re doing an experiment about the prevalence of psychic powers (the clipboard is just to add an air of authenticity to this assertion). When you have assembled a small group of people, shuffle the pack and take out a card at random. Ask one person from your audience to guess what the card is.
