I've never seen someone hypnotized live, but it just seems so strange. I've heard that few people can't be hypnotized. I just can't see it working on me  because I wouldn't be able to focus. I'm so scatter brained, anxious and my mind really never seems to relax.

Why doesn't he make a gay man straight?
Oh, I forgot.  That wouldn't be politically correct, would it?
Well in the article he says
"I was thinking about this the other day — it would be interesting wouldn't it? To take a gay guy and make him straight and a straight guy and make him gay."
So I wonder if he'll try making a gay person straight as well.

Derren brown is a fake on account that a person saying a combination of words into your ear cannot take control of you body after a brief meeting.its like the brain has some form of built in cheat code. What a load if rubbish! Nobody can take control or your actions by saying some magic words. Hypnotised are stage shows nothing more. I agree that brain washing can occur by conditioning and repetition but there is no way that another human being can do what brown claims to do. If it were true, as soon as it was discovered everybody would be doing it to get their own way. It's just weak minded fools pretending to be hypnotised,

You should really do some research on the subject.

Remember, this guy is an ILLUSIONIST.  Nothing he does is real.  What's he going to do, have the straight guy turned gay have sex with another guy on the stage?  Even that wouldn't prove anything.  If people would stop giving this guy press time, he'd just go away.

The good news is....
While Derren Brown is busy changing everybody's sexual preference, it leaves him less time for being a 'Chris French'-style rent-a-skeptic, and for cluttering youtube with his anti-paranormal propaganda.





Edit: Appalling grammar corrected!

just to clear up any confusion; the name 'darren' is spelt d-a-r-r-e-n, and the name 'derren' is spelt d-e-r-r-e-n.

Well, I would like to see him pull it off.
I do not think it is possible, but I am curious to see what he does.

That would be so, if there was any such name as Derren.

I'd just like people to know that thanks to this Thread, I've now got ads for Mature Gay Dating, and Local Chubby Gay Men Want To meet You.

I didn't think 'moon unit' was a name until frank zappa showed me the error of my ways, and now my kids, 'mature english cheddar' and 'DFS winter sale now on!' think i'm crazy!
