    Wish you hadn't done this one.. Psychics are entertainment.. like WWE Wrestling.. you might as well have an episode about why WWE or even superhero movies are fake... otherwise.. love all your episodes.. keep up the good work... some people enjoy psychics, and want to believe, no need to break it for them.. like WWE and even religion... (the stuff people do in the name of religion is fair game.. but to attack the symbol, i think belongs on another show)

    One time I was doing this to my friends, and one of them called me out on the whole "J could be anyone" thing. So I'm like ok, fine, let's do something specific. Sometime in the next 10 minutes a brown car is going to pull up (we were hanging around outside a convenience store pay phone, waiting for a friend to call it. This was the 90's, we didn't have cell phones, we just knew where everyone hung out, and memorized the pay phone numbers for those places.) and it's going to be full of people you haven't seen in years. I totally pulled that out of my ass, fully expecting it to not happen, and we'd all have a laugh about it when it didn't come true.
    Except it happened. Brown station wagon full of kids he went to school with a few years prior, but lost touch with when his family moved across town. And he gives me this slack-jawed look of shock and probably a little bit of fear. I mean I'm not psychic and I don't believe in psychics, but I freaked MYSELF out being bang on the money like that. Never happened again. Total one off, pure random chance, with the best possible timing. I mean what are the odds?

    Truth is....they're real well least some because they signed their souls....the devils is only people know the truth by read their mind and tell that person to tell that person what they want to hear . So it is real but problem is... recorded to bible state that when you die, that it you're sleeping. Death got nothing that why God don't like for you to talking to the dead cause they don't remeber they're all asleep. If you did talk to like someone that you the devil.... well it not me it the BIBLE told me and few of churches that how I know.

    There are a LOT of frauds who call themselves psychics. There are also a LOT of honest people trying to help others and being honest about how they practice who call themselves psychics. Just as some people believe in psychic phenomena enough to go to one, some people believe in psychic phenomena enough to become one. I don't care if you believe in psychics or if you don't. But to assume we're all out to screw people is dishonest. And being mean about it doesn't make us look any worse. That stuff always reflects back on the person being mean by showing their insecurities. Nobody is mean unless they are feeling insecure, ever.

    What really creepy is when somebody you don't know are playing Ouji board with people you don't know, and somebody ends up asking stuff about somebody in the room ie when and where you were born, what your favorite things were, where you live, how many pets you own, personal information and all that stuff... when your watching the game, and not playing or saying anything.
    You either got a stalker or a demon, and honey I don't know which is worse.

    I've heard that some fake psychics can become so good at cold reading that they do genuinely start to believe that they do have psychic powers. There's one guy who claimed he once believed he did too, before he found out what cold reading was. Kinda scary to think that some of these frauds do honestly believe that what they're doing is real.

    The correct answer to the question "how do you sleep at night?" is ALWAYS "on top of a pile of money, surrounded by beautiful women". Doesn't matter if it's true, but you need to sell it for the smug satisfaction of providing a stupid question with a stupid answer.

    I'm a little surprised they didn't mention their justifications. I have seen some episodes of Long Island Medium and you can tell by the way she talks about what's important that she thinks it's okay because she's giving people closure, and they believe it and feel better. I dunno, artificial though it may be, that's why people buy it. Finding closure on your own takes longer and is harder, so if they wanna pay instead, that's kind of their choice. Tough subject imo.

    I was a Tarot card.reader, I still have them and look at them. I had done some very odd and.specific readings that freaked people out but I was sceptical of their insight into the future or straight up fortune.telling.
    But the deck (I always used rider-waite)is fascinating in itself. The major arcana I have always thought of as archetypes and the minor arcana as encompassing most of the average human beings misery (concerns) and some suggestions for each or warnings, heck even.identifying a problem. So the practical usefulness is random chance, just asking a question,.shuffling the deck and pulling a card may present an idea you may not.have thought of in the context.of your problem, something to consider not the dead.talking to you :-)

    the bible tells us that the dead know nothing and that should mean nothing. if that is the case then who are we really contacting ? does the bible lie ? i believe we are being deceived by forces we cant even begin to under stand.
