Biggest load of horse cack ever

My belief is that they take advantage of vulnerable people (in most cases) and are generally just 'cold talking'. My grandmother was supposed to be one and didn't charge people for this 'gift', and whether people believed it or not is up to them. IMO however, those that charge for it are generally a cynical bunch (who know they are full of BS) looking to pick-pocket those who they get their claws into, with generic vague statements and leading questions.

Agree/disagree? I'm interested to hear others opinions!

'Cold reading' its called, and yes it narks me too that they are preying on very vulnerable people and openly lieing to them, disgusting!

...my Indian guide is telling me not to answer you :thinking:

I should say this; I have nothing but sympathy for those so hurt by the pain of bereavement that they are willing to try this as a way to heal themselves. However I think the practise should be only allowed as entertainment value (same as tarot cards etc) and should not be taken seriously.

All mediums and tv shows including them now have a disclaimer saying exactly that.

I suppose you can only give an opinion on this if you have had the experience - which i haven't but find it hard to understand - surely if you don't give them any details beforehand they then CAN NOT do any digging for information on you!

lol how wrong you are, these people are very clever and can pick up on very slight body language changes to a question and determine what the answer is ;)

Yeah I've seen it before, but I'm also talking about those that practise it as a business at home. They have a much more direct impact on the people than those on the TV do i.e. with heavy editing, colin fry can look like a damned genius (albeit a pug ugly one)!

My OHs sister went to one recently and all she asked for beforehand was an 'item you wear everyday', this in itself was a setup in my eyes as guess what the sister handed over - a ring! If you hand over a watch they probably are more likely to think you are single.

yep there are all sorts of clues you unwittingly give them, they simply waffle on and you will respond visually and they will pick up on that and pursue it :thumbsup:

Very clever some of them, theres a good penn and teller show about it where they rip it wide open as the scam it really is. i suggest getting hold of that episode.

heres a great website.

loads of great stuff proving what a loads of nonsense this stuff actually is.

I used to think they were a load of old twaddle, but then someone was swearing blind this old dear 50 miles away was the real deal and only asked for a donation to a cancer charity, so I went along and let her do all the talking, I was sat there being very aware of perhaps being fished for info, but she didn't, and sat there and said that there was someone that had made a journey to see her, as I had, and he wanted me to tell his mum that he was fine. She then sat there and said she was getting that he died in a car crash, there was a big impact and he was gone straight away, didn't suffer at all.

She had no way of knowing this as she didn't even have my name before I walked through her front door, and what she described was spot on - my sisters boyfriend lost his brother a year before I went there, and it was a car crash where he was killed on impact when the car he was a passenger in skidded sideways on into a parked van on the hard shoulder.

Still think that 99% of them are fakes, but there are obviously a genuine 1%, somewhere !

I saw Colin Fry last year (well half the show as I came out during the interval. I'm hard of hearing and found it difficult to follow the conversations) he was doing a two night run in Swansea, and what I found interesting is that the first thing he asked when he came on stage was " is there anyone in the theatre who was here last night?". Strange! Was it because he was about to tell the same stories to different people?
#19
In a word "rubbish"
#20
I'm open minded to it as nothing has been proven either way but I have been to 3 (trying to find out if there was anything to it) and all 3 talked nonsense. The first one told me that in years to come I would have 2 children, a boy and a girl. She couldn't even tell that I was bloody 8 months pregnant at the time!!! I was was small but still....

I have one friend who swore by them but she wears all these ring that say, mum, sister and all this kind of thing so obviously she's a family person and she talks to anyone who will listen so God knows what she was telling them.

Saying that though, she did take a funny turn and opened up all the windows and doors in another friends flat and said she was protecting their son as the spirits were coming to get him.

Needless to say she got sent to a mental ward and now wont go near mediums.

That story wont of worked on the other 20 people she saw that day tho , the law of averages says she can catch a few with a select set of questions. And those few that fall into that category will go spreading the word of how 'accurate' she is, like i said they are clever, but not psychic :thumbsup:
