I love science... and beer.
Mainly beer.

Well, someone has shown how it doesn't work. Up to you to show how it does.

scienceofscams.com has a few more clips like this which are also worth checking out, if anyone's interested. I posted the ouija debunking video on here a while back.

DB was also on the UK TV about a week ago, following around a scouse 'psychic', which was very funny.

As Marcello Truzzi once stated and Sagan paraphrased, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.
I certainly don't see any extrodinary evidence for psi wheels. Just science at work.

I love how people still cling on to the idea that this is still a real supernatural ability, when explicitly proven to simply be simple, explainable physics. How much more evidence do you need? *Sigh*

Makes me ashamed to be human.

We managed to grab a copy of it off the web - good viewing indeed!  Gotta love Derren and his dry wit  :devil:

That doesn't explain psi wheels that move under glass, does it?
