I've been watching Doctor Who before most of you were born...I was making fun of the Instructable.

How does "psychic paper" work?

It doesn't it's a nerd thing. from a show called dr. who. just give up.

unless your a cute chick then call me a nerd all you like

nerd is not the word to use here

i hope you get shot by a Dalek, get turned into a Cyberman, then fall into the Time Vortex, then once you get out, fall into the Doctor's time line for that comment

Its from a show called Doctor Who, the Doctor uses this paper and it can look like anything he wants so he can get into restricted areas.
