The comic title "The Data So Far" could also be a reference to the television program "Supernatural" which uses the phrase "The Road So Far" to recap plot points. ‎ (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

But is more likely a general reference to the use of "The Story So Far" in literally Graham's number of places. 21:17, 3 January 2014 (UTC)

Supernatural powers are, specifically, not evidence-based. If they were, they would be measured, quantified, and our understanding of the physical universe updated to account for them. They would then be simply described as "natural." For example, the power to hypnotize may appear "super," but the phenomena is sufficiently supported by evidence that it can be quantified, studied, and reproduced. It is thus treated as a "natural" rather than "supernatural." Power. Mountain Hikes (talk) 00:00, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

I disagree with the statement that hypnosis is a "power". It is no more a power than reiki or homeopathy. Also, there is no actual evidence for hypnosis beyond anecdotal, same as reiki and homeopathy! -- The Cat Lady (talk) 14:45, 14 August 2021 (UTC)

As I write this in August 2021, the explanation says, "In this case, the two other comics mentioned have no relation to this comic." However, no other comics are actually referenced? Nitpicking (talk) 14:09, 24 August 2021 (UTC)
