I thought Criss Angel should have known better...

You can't fool Uri with such childish challenges.

Heck, Uri has faced so many challenged in his life from people far more "dangerous" in terms of press than Criss "I am the only one doing Mentalism, the others do magick tricks!" Angel.

Drew, once again, extend to Uri my compliments next time you talk with him.

As well as here

http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Geller_Angel......hallenge

Were the updated release mentions I also was ready to take Angels' money.

A side note is that Gerry McCambridge helped me write the first page of my prediction that was to be used on the show the final night.

When I heard Uri start talking and were he was going I figured he was going to nail the thing and that was why the producers did not read my prediction.

(Uri's show and if he can make a million he gets his shot first I thought to myself.)

What kind of site is this? When I went there I saw an ad for what looked like a green card scam.

At any rate, this notion that Geller was "zoning in" is tantalizing on first blush but Geller never said he was trying to reveal the contents of the envelope and he seemed to be going all over the place talking about himself, Angel, ages, birthdates, spoon bending etc. Aren't there more practical reasons as to why Angel "cut him off" (besides the fact that Geller never explicitly said he was trying to name the envelope's contents) i.e. the show was in its closing moments and Angel had his heart set on having the spotlight to himself?

It's a romantic notion though. No doubt about it.

So you needed help to write the number 911? It took at least a page to do it?

Ahh. How mentalists love the tendencies of those who desperately want to believe. Who knew what easy prey other mentalists would be?

Lovin' it.

Magnus,

Just because some Mentalists want to believe this could have been, I find your comments about them being desperate or easy prey, very condescending at best and possibly offensive.

If I had to pay you back with the same kind of money you use, I would have to say that you are an idiot.

As I stated on another thread, I would have lost; I thought the number Criss had was written down was 116.

This must not be Kansas anymore, Toto.

Well, Mike, actually you could have claimed half-million. Smile

Except Cri$$'s $1M is in old Confederate bills or... y'know, since Luke Jermay used to consult to him - may actually have been a pile of Monopoly Money.

Fact is, never challenge people wiser, smarter and more experienced to a duel they are ready for...

Subtle and thoughtful. My hat's off to you.

If you want to get technical, Gellar didn't just "come close" to meeting the challenge Crangel issued in the final show. If one reviews the tape I believe you'll find that he, incontestably, succeeded. And, frankly, so could have I under the same conditions.

But I don't think Angel is willing the walk the walk ( ), so I assume he won't pay voluntarily even though he lost.

I think it would be a funny twist to the whole story. I could tell Uri was zeroing in on the target. Of course the mega skeptics will hem and haw about the rambling aspect of the revelation... No surprise there. I will be interested to see how far this goes...

Hem and haw about the hemming and hawing? Yes, I'm sure they will. The fools! Maybe not only the mega skeptics but the regular size ones as well!
