IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: URI GELLER - SPOON BENDER

Rate this Entry

I remember hearing about Israeli-Brit Uri Geller when I was a kid and the amazing claims of his ability to bend spoons with his mind. The "mentalist" Geller has remained quite popular in England and NBC Television here in the US will show his new show The Phenomenon beginning in late October.

    Hmmm - I'm not really sure you should be celebrating a shameless fraud like Uri Geller. Although I suppose America does have a grand tradition of lauding snake-oil salesmen.

    I prefer to "bed" something (actually, someone) other than spoons with what's left of my mind.

    Apparently his "set the dead watch on the TV & it will work" trick was just the heat of the TV warming it up for a second.

    (He's not actually very popular in England anymore)

    I think the last time I saw him on TV over here was on an episode of "Most Haunted", where he plugged himself with some nonsense about how Russian scientists had done an experiment on the spoon and found the mass to be missing after Uri had rubbed it.

    Whatever, Uri.

    All I can say is: James Randi, Uri Geller, The Tonight Show, 1973.

    I live in the UK, and I can say that Uri is as popular now as ever, that's over 30 years in showbusiness & media, likewise in Germany and Japan he is a sought after entertainer.
    People are entiltled to their opinion and I believe Uri has highly developed intuitive capabilities, he is a consumate showman who does posess some very unique abilitys, more to the point though, Uri is a very charitable person, and spends an inordinate amount of his free time (and money) is supporting good causes, an aspect of his work which his detractors never pick up on.
