A very good explanation, and one that could easily be verified by anyone. Would someone who claims to be telekinetic because of how they can manipulate the "psi wheel" like to comment?

Don't think this has anything to do with convection. He can choose what direction and the rate of spin. That Science of Scam show seems pretty ridiculous as well. I appreciate open-minded skepticism, but they are going out with the sole intention to reveal certain things as "scams" which will only generate one result.

Yes and youtube videos are about as useful for evidence as a turnip. It is not controlled conditions and if he can move something KNOWN to move under convection then he should be able to do it in controlled conditions. Wonder why no one has?

Yes I remember reading about this topic before I even joined UM, one incredible story on a site from a guy who was actually a founding member of a telekinesis (TK as they called it) group for a few years, and was their forum admin and resident expert. He finally decided he had seen and heard enough people trying to disprove the psi wheel and being a college or high school student with a good understanding of the scientific method (somewhat strangely, for a TK advocate), he set about a number of tests that took possibly an entire year, noting times, barometric pressure changes, the ambient room...

It's sad that a well produced video called "The Science of Scams" doesn't have a real scientist - Just Kat with only her BS in science. Her explanation is wrong - it is the rising vapor from the mugs that causes the convection current, not the heat of the mugs. She should try it with radiant heat, like a light bulb, to make a comparison with a person's hand. It's silly that some producer of the video or someone doesn't check the science. Plus the host looks silly too being a part of a video with such faulty science, "The Science of Scams" my butt.
