"Well, you need to be open minded" (so I can cold read your facial gestures better) and "you need to be kind to people" (i.e., kindly credulous, like the dopey woman sitting next to me). :lol: :lol: :lol:

Used to live in a neighborhood with a "psychic" - a hot little blond who made a decent living "reading" the local ladies (even saw one of my colleagues leaving her place). Had a column in a local newspaper. She read my aura at a party - apparently I had too much negativity for a proper reading.

The credulity of people often astounds me. But not too much.

What sort of numbnut invites this women on TV anyway?


IMHO what's even worse is some numbnut publishes a book she's written!

edit: oh fucking hell, there's more than one book she's written that has been published.

It could be 'spiritually'...
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

I'd publish it. I could use a bit of extra cash, and the people who buy this book would only spend their money on some other bullshit anyway. I'd make better use of it.

It never pays a prophet to be too specific (Sprague de Camp),

I feel an M or J. I see a cupboard in your family, maybe a kitchen bench. Sigh.

WooooOOOoooo. "Do you know someone called Mary or John? I mean, I 'see' someone whose name starts with an M or a J. Does that mean something to you?"

What a trivial thing to have such a power, simply your name. If you change your name you are still you, why do these supposed 'spiritual' people put such a big stock on ones handle?


Can you imagine if that is the truth.

When you die you hang about until you find a medium... ANd the fucker is getting the info so bad he can't even get your name right and you kinda have to hope your family member is around so that once he has your name and family memeber he can atually get your message until then he's stuck guessing.

IF that's the afterlife. I'm totally going to hang about psychics and pretend to be a ton of people and give them the wrong information jsut to make them look like a bunch of idiots... Wait... maybe that's why they can't proove their powers, because the dead are dicks because they can't move on.

How about the psychic & news lady stop being so closed minded to the possibility that the "spirit world" doesn't exist. And psychics are just making shit up.

They are the closed minded people. They are the ones shut off from reality.

Psychic: I see an M or J person. Do you have someone in your life with a J or M?
Skeptic: Yeah.
Psychic: Is it J or M.
Skeptic: M
Psychic: Is it male or female?
Skeptic: Female
Psychic: Does it start with Mar or Meg
Skeptic: oh yes…Megan( in a slightly sad tone)
Psychic: See. I sense that she was someone special in your life.
Skeptic: Yes, she was very special (more sadness)
Psychic: I sense you loved her a lot. I also sense that you miss her a lot.
Skeptic: How did you guess that? Yes… I miss her so much. I wish she is with me.
Psychic: I sense that the break up was very painful.
Skeptic: Yes… of course.
Psychic: Well, I can tell you that Megan too misses you a lot and if you can show her how much you care about her, she will come back to you. But you have to be patient.
Skeptic: (Eyes lit up) Is it true? Will she really be mine?
Psychic: Yes, but as I said you have to be patient and show her how much you love her without being desperate.
Skeptic: Thank you so much.
Psychic: (Triumphantly) You are welcome.
Skeptic: But just one problem.
Psychic: ?
Skeptic: I was kidding the whole time. There was never any Megan in my life, I am gay as long as I can remember, I don’t love or miss any girl, there was never any break up and basically made the whole thing up.

She can't read minds but talks to the spirit world.
The only thing that can be concluded from that video is that the spirits are having fun making her look like a dumb ass.

I like the conversation between psychic and skeptic. It’s really very funny.

I bet the book's publisher was thoroughly disappointed with the "promotion"... :lol:

And it doesn't help that the cover blurb advertises a preview by the Biggest Douche in the Universe...

It says "John Edward", who is apparently a psychic or a medium or something, not "John Edwards." If it were the latter, that would have shown a complete lack of foresight, never mind psychic abilities.
