6 psychics stood behind the 6 standing only podium reaching desperatly for the number 6 buzzer button.

Summoning game host: "Bang!" the clock starts now...

Summoning game host:"What was that then?

"Bzzzzz,the mirror cracking? "

Summoning game ghost: "Correct-10 points to psychic number 4!"

(and so forth.)

       //6 psychics stood behind the 6 standing only podium reaching desperatly for the number 6 buzzer button.// Nope, not getting it.

       Keep looking.   

       I ..."Crash!" What the hoot was that?
skinflaps, Apr 16 2013
  

       Perhaps I can pinpoint the comprehensional difficulties more concisely: //the 6 standing only podium reaching// appears not to actually have a meaning.   

       If I take it through Google Translate into Russian, back into English, Russian again, then Finnish and back into English once more, I get "6 stands just to get on the podium", but even this stops just a hair's breadth short of intelligibility.

       You left out a 6.
skinflaps, Apr 16 2013
  

       You're right. The actual quote is // 6 standing only podium reaching//. My mistake.   

       Incidentally, I spent most of today trying to set up and use a rather elaborate piece of lab equipment for which the software had been written in Japan.   

       At one point, when it failed a self-calibration test, it reported "Inconceivable error."   

       This pleased me.

       No immediate or verifiable cause with manifestations regarding Allan Kardec then?   

       (Chair flys mid-air across the studio crashing into one of the many Panavision Super Panatars, whilst the psychics endure the "Guess the poltergeist sound round" whilst blindfolded.   

       Psychic 2: "Bzzzzz, "Is it a trash can?   

       Summoning game host:"That's the wrong answer,over to.....and so on.

       This was totally a fun waste of my time +

       So, neither the contestants, nor the host, are poltergeists...

       Not sure I can get with this recent increase in incomprehensible idea descriptions.

       So maybe this is a word-play on *host* to *ghost*...?
xandram, Apr 17 2013
  

       The number 6 comes to mind.   

       "Psychics guess the object with this next noise"
skinflaps, Apr 17 2013
  

       OK then, maybe // 10 ponts// should be corrected?
xandram, Apr 17 2013
  

       So... nothing to do with chickens?   

       Poultrygeist.
skinflaps, Apr 17 2013
  

       //Poultrygeist// Is that like a zeitgeist, but about chickens rather than zeits?
MaxwellBuchanan, Apr 17 2013
  

       It's a angry dead chicken.
skinflaps, Apr 17 2013
  

       Noisy angry dead chicken.
whlanteigne, Apr 17 2013
  

       Hühnergeist, or poultry-ghost, please.

       This coop... is clea-ar.
