    I got that for Virgin Rail. I had a problem with my london tickets and she was going on for ages but I didn't have a clue what she was going on about, eventually, she spoke in 2 word sentences for me. Maybe a higher proportion of the virgin market is targetted towards hindi speakers.
    This is the case for all call centres for major companies. Their call centres are generally based in Asia so they employ people for much cheaper. I can't beleive I had to point that out...

    It doesn't help much even if you ring, to be honest. Sometimes it does if you're lucky enough to get one of the ones with a brain.
    Oh dear. I might put it off some more...

    If he manages to predict the numbers before they've been drawn I'll be VERY surprised. The man is a genius of psychology and reading body language, he doesn't have the power of precognition. (Read "the physics of the impossible if you're interested in that stuff. Its very geeky, but he goes into the actual physics of whether its possible. Its a good read.)
    Oh yeah, I completely agree with that. But some of the stuff he does is simply bizarre - I saw him playing 20 questions with a guy (who wasn't a stooge), and he got it in one question (which incidentally was "Is it larger than a piano?"). There's a trick to anything he does (and often he doesn't tell you, he simply invents a far grander story).

    I'm not really sure how he'll do it on Wednesday. I've got a couple of ideas (Presenting what everyone believes is a live feed on his show, but is in fact on a 10 second delay, for example). It's always fascinating to watch him though, and I can't wait - the best ones in my opinion are going to be the subliminal messaging one and the casino event, they sound fascinating.

    By all means, give them a call. Maybe you'll be lucky, it's quite a fun game to guess which ones will be helpful. You could take bets!

    I broke a glass earlier, it's standard for me to just break all the crockery :p:

    I broke a coke glass at work the other day we're meant to be giving them as free gifts with large meals, instead I just throw them on the floor.
