Has there been any double-blind, large-group research on the healing power of Braco's gaze? I think an effective control would involve just sitting in a room with a perfectly lifelike waxwork of Braco gazing at you for the same amount of time. Somebody get me Madame Tussaud's medical research division.

Sadly this man will die of untreated leukemia, because he can't gaze into his own eyes.

Back in my day, clerics had to touch their patient in order to cast cure light wounds. Now-a-days these newfangled healers are spoiled with their ranged healing.

Figures that he'd be one of the hucksters advertising in Pathways magazine. That thing is chock full of Reiki, past-life regressions, dog therapy, cat therapy, etc.

My favorite? "Irish Healing." I imagine it as some Danny-boy hitting you in the head with a bottle of Guinness, saying, "Are ye healed yet?"

"The thing that makes Braco unique," Salla said, "is he really doesn't do anything...What you bring in, your desires, are what's really the most important thing here. He stands before these audiences around the world and opens himself up to something. We don't really know what it is."

Well, he's got the pope beat, hands down.

Wow. fark it. I'm not even gonna buy the tent and have a revival anymore! I'm gonna STARE, and with my ALL-SEEING-EYE I will suck the hopelessness, the being-ignored-ness, and the MONEY right outta you!

How does that make me feel? Embarrassed...for you.

I happened to be in the lobby of a hotel during one of his gigs. Filled with beta males and doughy exurban housewives desperate for someone, ANYONE, to look at them for once as though they mattered, and willing to convince themselves that this grifter had somehow solved some OTHER, possibly real problem, in order to enjoy the gaze.

Creepiest damn thing I ever saw.

Braco also comes with many disclaimers. He does not call himself a healer or guarantee any results. He does not consider himself a prophet or a religious leader, does not espouse a particular philosophy and does not want anyone to follow him. The impact of his gaze may be sudden or gradual, subtle or profound. If there's any impact at all.

I like this guy. He's taken the 'fool and his money are soon parted' thing to it's extreme. The only way this could be better, is if it was entirely donation driven. At that point you have people willingly giving you money that for the explicit reason of doing nothing and you didn't even require them to. The penultimate proof that people are idiots.

I wonder how many people see this and smack themselves for not having thought of it first.
