If the coin lands on heads, picture 1 would be the target and 2 for tails. Once we have the discription from the psychic, we bring out those 2 pictures (without knowing the actual target) and have the psychic or us to decide which one of these 2 pictures is the most likely to the description. Afterwards, we send the decision to the skeptic and if the skeptics finds that the decision matches the actual target, it's a direct hit otherwise a miss.
I like it! And yeah, we'll have full disclosure on this one, because statistics are always too arguable. Hard results are what's gonna matter. If we get x significance level, it's gonna be another "oh, that's not THAT significant" vs. "yes, it is" debate, but if we publish the actual pictures and descriptions, that is hard evidence that there were good results (or not, of course - we'll publish whatever we get).
I like, I like, I like. I think we're set. We can consult with the psychics on what to do with the decoy situation as well. Or like you say, just use two pics. We'll discuss with them.
Now, the problem is finding skeptic and psychic volunteers...
By the way, sir Arouet, do you have Skype? You shall need it for this one, if you're going to participate.
