After my last post about Peter Popoff, I got a comment stating 'Do you now understand why we make fun of Americans?'. It's easy to find examples of ignorance in America. Its culture is quite open to us. Here are some other examples of mind-boggling credulity:
Israel - This clip is worth watching. Like Peter Popoff, Uri Geller was exposed on the Johnny Carson show decades ago. Despite this, he's still able to appear on Israeli television doing his same old schtick! This time watch the suspicious way he appears to stick something on the end of his thumb, just before the compass needle moves. What could it be, I wonder? Does this crap still impress people?
James Randi is the nuts!
Saudi Arabia - If, like me, you watched a World Cup game last year, be afraid. Be very very afraid. You're going straight to hell.
What I love about this clip is the dead-pan way the host expresses concern while the cleric talks the most hilarious bullshit I've heard in years. I can't make up whether he's taken in by it or whether he's decided to give the religious loony enough rope to hang himself. Brilliant viewing either way.
