Question of the week: Which pseudoscience do you wish was real?

One of the things I consider key to approaching things skeptically is valuing truth over comfort.  I would rather know what is really going on than be told a comforting lie.  But for this week’s question, I’m going to set that aside to ask: which pseudoscience do you wish was real?

Do you think it would be really cool if an alien spaceship really had crashed in New Mexico in the late 40s?

Would you love to be able to commune with the dead? Perhaps you could channel Einstein and help him collaborate with Stephen Hawking, or find out what Newton thinks about relativity?

Do you wish you could dowse for your car keys when you lose them in the morning?

Tell us what woo would be fun if it were true, what you would do with it, and why!
