    david blaine :rolleyes:


    Look http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1Y7QR314xA The Video Geller Does Not Want YOU to see.

    Im surprised that nobody made an issue out of this.

    Uri's about to publish footage of him with jacko, footage that is never seen before, for this hes getting $$$$'s ITV is paying him, am just saying how on earth does he gain such respect?

    when MJ died he was one of the first to be interviewed by th BBC and Sky.

    he's just another money making blood sucking con artist. how the **** does he do it?


    I mean, look here http://www.zem.demon.co.uk/nzrh.htm about him being a conman, yet claiming he has supernatural powers.

    http://www.zem.demon.co.uk/maug.htm this is comments by magicians

    His arch critic has been James "The Amazing" Randi, who has written a book and numerous articles aimed at demonstrating that Geller is a fraud, that he has no psychic powers, and that what Geller does amounts to no more than the parlor tricks of a conjurer.

    Geller claims his feats are the result of paranormal powers[11] given to him by extraterrestrials,[23] but critics such as James Randi argue and have demonstrated that Geller's tricks can be replicated with stage magic and are simply "parlour tricks."[13]
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uri_Geller what a moron


    so, am asking, why does this man get so much attention? he's a fraud and conman, maybe he's using his contacts with the likes of MJ gullible he seemed, to gain respect and fame for him self as well as a few bob

    are the public gonna raise thier concerns?

    I hope so.

    wht do you think? should he be exposed fully as a fraud?

    I never once believed David Blaine or Uri Geller were ever good. Both completely up their own arse.

    One of David Blaine's 'tricks' was to pull a fishing hook out his lobe, causing it to bleed - he did this in a room full of British journalists who actually laughed at him, and wrote him up as being an idiot

    Exposure as a fraud? They're not exactly exalted as mystics are they? I really didn't feel the need to sacrifice my first youngest brother in an effort to appease them.

    Uri Gellar can't be exposed as a fraud because we already know that he's not psychic etc. and that anyone can be taught to bend spoons.

    As for Blaine, he is an illusionist who uses video editing, but does that make him a fraud or an illusionist of this generation?
