Mr. Big's last word on telepathy

Well, the inevitable happened. Someone wrote in accusing me of being a patsy, or shill, for the telepathic conspiracy. I'm "providing cover" to these master-minds, apparently, by denying the reality of psychic powers like telepathy.

So here's the thing about powers in general: they come from somewhere. They work a certain way. As a supervillain, one of your most awesome secret skills is being able to figure out a hero's power faster than he can figure out yours. You have all of the public footage of that guy in action, all the press releases, all the journalism, everything. Buying into this psychic nonsense just gets in the way of doing what you really need to do: apply logic, reason, and science to a serious problem.

This is how we get power suppression drugs. This is how we get supervillains in prison. The other side isn't wasting time with this crap any more, and neither should we.

Alright, enough of that.

The Mole Master sent me all sorts of pics of his new lair. This isn't like the lairs I advise, but MM isn't the sort of villain I write guides for. So I'm going to talk about some of the best features he's come up with, why they work, why they might not work for you, and what you can do about that.

P.S. somehow that son of a bitch got a new iPhone as well.
