Sometimes I feel more skeptical than others. This is one of those times.

Blind Psychic Gropes Buttocks to See Future
Tue Jul 9,11:55 AM ET
By Nick Tattersall

BERLIN (Reuters) - Forget palm-reading. A blind German psychic claimed Tuesday he could read people's futures by feeling their naked buttocks.


Clairvoyant Ulf Buck, 39, claims that people's backsides have lines like those on the palm of the hand, which can be read to reveal much about their character and destiny.

"The bottom is much more intense -- it has a much stronger power of expression than the hand in my experience," Buck told Reuters. "It goes on developing throughout your life."

By running his fingers along a number of lines on the surface of a client's posterior, he says he can tell them about their future monetary success, family life, health and happiness.

He says lines representing success, career and artistic ability extend inwards from the outer extremities of the buttocks, while a further five lines radiate outwards.

"I began on a circle of friends and the circle grew," Buck said. "I am not a new-age freak. I treat people with great care and conscientiousness."

Buck, who lives in the northern village of Meldorf, northwest of Hamburg, says all types come to him to have their bottoms read.

He sees his blindness as a great asset, not least because it means customers do not risk having their identities revealed.

"All sorts come, from cleaning ladies and secretaries to prominent members of the community. For them, my being blind is an advantage because I can do it without recognizing them again in the future." Buck has been blind since the age of three.

Although he claims to have spent many years training his fingers, with his index and middle fingers the most sensitive, Buck says even amateur buttock readers can make a broad-brush assessment of people's personalities.

"An apple-shaped, muscular bottom indicates someone who is charismatic, dynamic, very confident and often creative. A person who enjoys life," he said. "A pear-shaped bottom suggests someone very steadfast, patient and down-to-earth."

He is quick to shoot down any suggestion that his buttock groping might be motivated by anything other than a genuine desire to probe people's futures.

"I do not need to feel bottoms for my own pleasure. My wife is quite beautiful enough for me," he said.

Buck is reluctant to speak about his successes, but says he correctly predicted an actress from a popular German soap-opera was going to write a book, and says a stockbroker has been using his services for over two years.

"No stockbroker would keep asking a blind clairvoyant to tell them about future stock prices if they didn't believe I could to it," he said.

Bill,
that's very funny and sad at the same time because you realise that some people are ready to believe anything.
Recently in France a fake doctor was arrested because he said to his beautiful patients that he could cure them with a new sattelite scanner. But to be efficient they had to stand naked on their balcony while the sattelite was over their heads. needless to say that the only happy persons in this case were the neighbors!

He it's true, people are ready to believe anything, but what can we do ?...

In my opinion nothing. Every mentalist know that people who believe will continue to believe whatever the skeptics will explain and the others... The other will see a "trick" everywhere paranormal seems to appear.

Even if I think both extremes are silly, I don't believe we will change anything at this, whatever the way we choose to perform our art for example.
Some people need to believe, like a faith, because their life is better when they believe, and we can't blame them for that, it's a choice in life. Others are in a challenge when they see something they can't understand (and I don't talk only about magic).

Many great mentalists said they meet people who continue to believe they have true power even when they explained the basis of psychology they use in their mentalism effects...

Be careful, I don't say that's a reason enought to cash in on these people when they are weak, because of a problem in their life... And I can't understand some magicians who have fallen in this "dark side of the Force".

But too many people (and too many magicians in my opinion) think these people who have strange beliefs are always weak people we need to help. That a nonsense. The respect must also be a rule. I know, that's difficult to see the thin frontier between a faith were somebody can keep all his liberty, and a faith that alienate people.

But we have to be careful not to judge too quickly the beliefs of anyone.

FYI... BUTT READING is also practiced by Sly Stalone's mother... she was on the old Regis & Kathie Lee show taughting her talents several years ago. I believe this was also mentioned in People magazine and some kind of Psychic/Paranormal Tv special... sorry, don't recall the dates... about 3-4 years ago I'd say.

Considering how certain elements of the world market have particular "kinks" this might be an angel worthy of exploring by those comfortable in Nudist Colonies...

Speaking of which (this is true) there is a guy in San Francisco that does a very unique form of Phrenology... it isn't the head between your shoulder's he reads the bumps and lines on however... Smile

In all seriousness, I did read a news article that was posted to one of the mentalism lists I'm on within the last year about a psychic who's reading technique of choice was to sense things about a person by performing fellatio on him. No joke! I've heard some bizarre ways to try to get around prostitution laws, but that's a new one...of course it does put Craig's comparison of the two fields into an entirely new light :o1

I saw this on Ripley's believe it or not. I wondered what would happen if someone said they could read breasts? I mean it makes sense doesn't it? Interesting.
