Daniels told the Guardian today: "He could get it exactly right ... [but] it is much better for a mentalist if he gets one wrong. It is more believable."

Paul Daniels is right of course. Only wish he hadn't said it publicly; nevertheless, it does help build suspense and hype Derren's prediction.

Paul was right if Derren wasn't going to explain how he did it.

If Derren was going to leave it to everyones imagination, then missing one would have been cool!

Paul's comment has the potential to do more damage than any exposure Derren might do on Friday night. Shame.

However, Paul has just revealed a classic mentalism technique. A ruse, if you like. In my opinion, these techniques are far more valuable than any secret method used to achieve an effect.

You missed the entire point ...

How do you know what Derren will or will not expose is worse than Paul's?

Your "Idol Worship" is showing Smile

NOPE!!!!

You are assuming to know the effect that DB will have on the mentalist community even before he does it.
(His explanation or exposure)

So unless you have Super Powers ... you are Blowing Smoke!

I suggest you read back over my posts Dave, and perhaps look up the word "potential" in a dictionary. I do not assume to know how Derren achieved this effect, nor did I state for certain that it will be more or less damaging. I stated that Paul's comments had the potential to be more damaging. My first post expressed my opinion, which I am entitled to express, and I don't particularly appreciate you flaming me for no apparent reason.

Cheers,

Chris

You can't compare the two exposures until you see the second one. Plainly obvious for a critical thinker.
To say one is potentially worse than the other before both are known is the most illogical thinking on God's green earth!
No flaming needed. (I like how you call disagreeing "Flaming" Smile )

Lot of hot air in here again I see lol

But I agree Daniels exposure to the public, of a very important mentalism tool is in itself very damaging....hate the stumpy short guy anyway Smile.....but Dave, you are such a philosopher, and critical thinker, we should engage in philosophical hot air one day.....begins with words and ends with words....god I hate philosophy! but with YOU it will be all flaming entertainment!!

Which is why I used the word "potentially". Until we have all the "evidence" (look that one up too) we can only speculate. My original post agrees exactly with what you are saying. What part of that do you fail to grasp?

You accused me of "idol worship" and "blowing smoke". That my friend, constitutes "flaming".

You should see a live show of mine sometime. Halloween will be Stellar Smile
--------------------------------------

And MG you are just upset because they've removed Harry H, Jameme, Jon of Ark, and the rest of your friends from the Café and shut down that section. So now you are here whining about Flaming.

Get on topic for once and use a little logic.

If Derren comes out Friday and exposes some sort of Black Art (Or worse) then he will have far exceeded the exposure of Paul (Which I agree was totally wrong to do in a newspaper or any interview)

However, your hero fixation on Derren prevents you from seeing that. ( He threw Corinda to the lions once, remember?)

Bottom line.....

You don't have all the facts !!!!
