Tonight, Thursday June 12, Larry King is hosting some more pretend psychics:
Psychic kids! Some see dead people, others have a sixth sense! Plus, John Edward and Char Margolis. It's gonna (sic) be a great show. They're predicting it! What do YOU want to ask them?
Well, I’d ask them how they have the nerve to keep playing this cold reading game as though they really were talking to dead people. But that’s just me. I’m not sure who these “psychic kids” are, but we’ve all seen John Edward and Char (“do you have a C?”) Margolis before, playing their cold reading guessing game. Last time they chickened out, but perhaps this time they will actually take some calls and pretend to be talking to dead people, so that we can play bingo.
Click here for the printable psychic bingo card:
The explanations for the squares can be found at the same John Edward / James van Praagh Bingo post from last year. Read the full explanations (and explain them to your woo friends who may be watching with you), to get the full benefit. Char doesn’t employ the exact same routine as van Praagh, but I think it’ll be close enough that I don’t need to change any of the squares. I expect Edward to be the same as usual.
Click the “Randomize” button for cards with different sequences. Or print the same card twice and see if Edward or Margolis gets bingo first. (My money’s on Edward.)
Thursday evening – Edited to add:
Well, the psychic show was called off. It was still advertised on CNN last night but had gone by sometime today. Apparently they wanted to cover four boy scouts who were killed by a tornado yesterday, instead. I don’t know what to think – if you can’t trust Larry King… Also, and this is really puzzling, why didn’t any of the psychics predict this? To quote Larry’s website yesterday, “It's gonna be a great show. They're predicting it!” Bzzt – wrong again, they missed, but thanks for playing.
We’ll get to play bingo one day though. I’m determined.
