What is your cut for sharing your magnificent power with me? Do you think maybe you should get very little since using your power for personal gain might backfire?



I agree and disagree on it. Taking money from casino who rips off millions of people a year I dont think there is any good verses bad dilema of ethics

I've heard it many times, not to use for personal gain thing... If you given gift why not to use it to have a good life and to help others financially cause you can? Ok lets drop casino, say you psychic so you have to work 8-5 all day and then for free help others? I believe its better you charge for your service and do it good professionally. Before psychic in vilages would get paid by whats offered, like sack of potatos or grains or eggs.. I find it hard to believe this days psychic would be able to live same way, you cant pay your bills by eggs or potatos..

Its a lose lose way of thinking I guess. You work for free people will say, if you good why not to make living of it ( charge people or win in casino :)), and if you gain money you will be accused of personal gain. You cant live on thank you and on whats offered this days, doesnt matter how good you are at what you do. Unless you charge/have price, no one will offer you to pay, people will assume you dont need money if you dont ask for it.

Its a tricky thing really.

I've never understood that school of thought. Pro athletes use their power for personal gain, opera singers do, Mr. Wizard uses his abilities for personal gain. Why shouldn't anyone use a gift just because not everyone received it?



My thoughts exactly, why not? To do what you can do best, make money of it, have good life and help others when you can. Gifts given to use them otherwise "you would not get it"

I suggest anyone who thinks this is remotely possible ("remotely" -- that's a joke, get it, as in "remote viewing?") read James Randi's FlimFlam and go from there.

Debunking paranormal is a hobby of mine, but I sure wouldn't waste time on a roulette dude. If anybody wants to bet him, dig up your own roulette wheel, make him a bet he can't do a couple standard deviations above chance, and have at it.

Now the problem (I'm a stickler for details) is whether the dude is displaying precognition or telekinesis. So you've gotta discern if he is picking the numbers well in advance without being on site with the wheel (precognition) or whether he is telekinetically affecting the spins while on site, or both. Now both would be tricky to test.

I'm sure the mods are impressed by my sophistication, eh?

Of course, you have to also make sure he isn't using telekinesis to affect the neurons in your brain to influence what you think that you see as opposed to the roulette ball itself. One would think affecting neurons would require less telekinetic brute force, but maybe it's so delicate, it's easier to affect the wheel.

I'm just getting started, but you get the picture, eh?

Good luck with that.

You'd be better off trying to find successful physicists than psychics.

Hi there!

New here.. just registered as you can see. Straight to the point.. any one has experience of meeting psychics able to predict coming number at the roulette table?

What would you say if someone would claim to be able to do that?




Go to the end of the very, very long line.

If someone was to say he discounted completely the idea that there is a sixth sense or asserted that all psychics in the world were fake, I'd say that person has a closed mind.

If he said he needs convincing evidence is all, well, OK

If he* said the idea that a psychic could have a vision or something that emanated from an inanimate object like a roulette ball, that's a concept that is really out there ~ far enough out there to just dismiss and not legitimately be accused of having a closed mind. If the psychic could pick out a player who was on track to win, though still needing a lot of evidence at least we are no longer talking about inanimate objects.

*that would be me dismissing this btw

telekinesis is different thing/powers. I am interested more in psychic abilities to foresee future. predict things. I believe it is possible. Asking around maybe someone out there or someone would be looking to team up lol

Well Ive seen it, and know alot about Randy and his challenge that now for years has been closed. I believe the guy from sceptic just turned in to dismissive scinic..
