Many of us have heard stories and anecdotes about friends or relatives having weird/unexplainable experiences, well I can ‘top trump’ all of them because something very strange happened to me recently, but unlike all these ‘wooooOOOOoooOOOOoooo’ stories you hear that are beyond investigation, I actually went back, recreated the circumstances and had exactly the same experience again! Repeatability and predictability are the core aspects of a rigorous scientific investigation, allow me to explain………

I was out on the Kawasaki ZX12R and ended up in Burford, a quaint little farming village off toward the Cotswolds on the A40, it has a rich farming history that goes back centuries that can obviously be seen in the architecture of the area. Anyway, I was hungry so I pulled up at the Little Chef in the town and on dismounting it was obvious that the restaurant was in an old converted barn, on entering it was even more obvious with the very high ceiling and the oak beams still in place, I could really feel the centuries of history in the place, even now in its new guise. I decided to order the Beef Burger from the menu, which I ate in its entirety being utterly starving. I paid, and as I was walking out of the barn a very strange thing happened, I thought about the meal I had just eaten and I thought “Wow, that was delicious! And in the Little Chef too!” Can you imagine that happening to you? I think you will agree it is almost unbelievable that you can get a nice meal at Little Chef.

A few weeks later I was passing by and tried it again and the burger was equally delicious.
