According to statistics complied by Edgar Allan Poe Community College, women's intuition saved 10,500 lives in 2014. The multi-disciplinary study found that the often-derided supernatural ability was actually effective on a number of fronts--and that many female premonitions saved lives.
According to teaching assistant Heatherleen Glade, who lead the study, "This proves that every woman, no matter whether she's a municipal court judge or a street-walking prostitute, should pay close attention to her own intuition.
"We found that females effectively used their intuition to save over ten thousand lives. Cases included a mother's sense that she shouldn't drive her kids to school during a Category Five tornado; a Florida judge who 'just knew' an accused killer was guilty; and the aforementioned streetwalker, who decided at the last moment not to climb into a darkened van with a knife-wielding john--even though he offered her a free hit on his crack pipe."
Ms. Glade said she has launched a similar study for 2015. "We want to find if women save more lives this year by trusting their instincts. If so, we believe that female intuition should then be considered among our most precious natural resources."
