    Yes, ashamedly, I have tried, but it works.

    Try going up to a door in a supermarket, raise your hand, and it miraculously opens! :)

    Yes. Not always works, but if you try often enough, you get lucky.

    I most certainly have. When i was younger (a lot younger) I used to think that if I thought really hard, I could move things around with my mind. My head hurts just thinking about it. :p

    What do kids do in school nowadays? I actually focused on this ant running around the classroom once. I concentrated so hard, someone stepped on it.

    It takes me about 15 - 20 minutes to get the remote when it's out of reach because every time I tell myself if I concentrate hard enough, it'll come to me...but it never does :(

    lol!
    I've tried bringing the remote to me, too! :)

    I'll admit to trying to use the Force while bored in school :D

    I don't think that anyone here hasn't tried to use the force at at least one point in their lives. I admit it openly.

    Yeah, but how many have actually experienced it as real? I have... No, I didn't pick up the remote with the Force, but I have had dreams that predicted the future, and other stuff like that. More on this later.

    i have so many times it's not funny.....well, actually it is when you think about it.
    it really worked for me once. i'm serious. i have a twin brother and i was having a light sabre duel and i thought just for the heck of it i would try to use the force to predict his move, i followed the advice given to obi-wan by yoda and the advice from luke to corran. either way it worked. cool ha?

    I've dreamed stuff that's come true, too. Once I lost my pocket knive, and I had a dream it was in my closet. I woke up, went to where it was in my dream, and that's where it was. Other stuff, too.

    Try this, always works.

    Throw a boomarang and guide it with your fingers and say come back to me or guide it back with your fingers, hey it works for me. Guess I am that good as a Jedi, probably even better.

    Yep, I've had premenitions. Is deja vu part of the Force? I get a lot of that.
    I've tried to use the Force when I'm bored. Or when I'm angry, I try to choke someone with the Force. ;)

    Has anyone read or seen Matilda? it's about this superclever girl who can move things around with her mind. She used it to pretend the ghost of a nasty teacher's husband was writing stuff on the blackboard.
    Maybe you do have to be really intelligent to use the Force?
