Sorry, that video sucked. Someone should have just edited it down to the 2 minutes or so that was relevant, holy fark. I wonder how many people spent $2 per call to tell Randi that absolutely NOTHING happened in their homes when Geller was on screen, though. THAT part was awesome.

The sad thing is that Geller is 66 and Randi is 85, and I'd sooner think Geller was senile.

Alyson is a peach. Like when you eat a peach that is so ripe you can push your thumb through the skin. The juice runs down your chin and drips onto your chest, and the place in between your fingers gets so sticky you have trouble separating them. The next day, even after you wash your hands, you can still smell the sweet juice on your skin and, if no one is watching, you lick your fingers and the memory of that sweet fruit on your tongue floods back. Alyson is like that.

I watched it and then started fast forwarding.... Then I saw the 1-900 popup in the previews and stopped to look at what the options were. I totally lost it when I started thinking about someone calling and paying $2 just to say 'Nope, nothing happened at MY house, everything's cool here.'... Otherwise, the video was far too long and boring.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I found the part where he "debunked" Geller, and all he really did is show how the trick could be done. I was hoping for a big confrontation on stage where he exposed Geller's hidden magnets, or something. It was a kind of boring "reveal", really.

I think that's a fair certainty, considering the amount of time it would take to chisel out a notch that big in a bridge support, and the noise and attention it would generate.

And by "someone", I'm also sure it was the attention whore Geller.

That's kind of the point, though. If a stage magician can effortlessly re-create the effect of the supposed paranormal power, it severely undermines the claim of paranormal power. Why should someone believe in paranormal powers when a completely mundane methodology achieves an identical result?

Yeah, but the word "debunked" makes you think they have footage of him hiding props and shiat. Funny thing is, Randi is dishing on Geller for how much money he makes dowsing for gold and such, where Randi is putting out these specials and making money hand over fist, and they absolutely suck. Well at least that one did, no production values at all. You want to talk about someone ripping people off? Randi shouldn't go pointing fingers anywhere....

Because making money exposing fraud is exactly the same as making money using fraud. Maybe even worse. Randi should be ashamed.

Yeah, both sides are bad. So who should I vote for?

And, because there are videos of Gellar using props and props that have been setup prior to the performance. Additionally, Johnny Carson, who was a magician, knew his tricks and had Gellar attempt his psychic stuff with props that Carson personally oversaw and set up for the performance. Remarkably, Gellar could not get his psychic powers to work that day.

He's exposing one kind of fraud while perpetrating another... Shiatty "tell all" shows that are nothing but repeat, repeat, repeat, with about 7 minutes of actual interesting content, and the rest is just rehashing what they've already covered is pretty bad, too.
