I used to love those events ;)
As the guy had never even been to a medium and didn't even know exactly what it was they did, I suggested to him he couldn't really talk with such certainty about a subject he really knew nothing about and made the suggestion that he at least go and see for himself what it is they actually DO - and only then could he reasonably slag off the subject with such conviction. IOW, shut up about it because you don't know what you're talking about!. (This was long before 'Most Haunted' and all the related garbage so widely available these days).
Why would I remind you of him?
I have blatantly a millions times more experience and knowledge than him!
I have seen over 200 mediums FACE TO FACE for readings. I have analysed over 2000 readings, I am the single most experience skeptic in the UK. seriously, name one skeptic who has done what I have done!!!
And I was once challenged as you well know, if i was to call mediumship bullshit I should try it first. I DID! AND I still call it bullshit. So in your little story I have already answered all of your challenges, but sorry to interupt....
The large room was packed solid and we squeezed in by the wall near to the back of the room. When the medium came in I recognised her straight away as someone who had been a guest on the 'Terry Wogan' show on telly about 2 weeks previous (that'll give you an idea how long ago this was) - a young medium from Denmark, who Terry had been really taking the 'p' out of on the programme.
Who was the medium? I probably exposed them as a fraud before.
Yer man was the second person that she came to with a message - straight away saying his father had passed to spirit very recently, it was not yet a year, and she went on to describe him, the illness that he had when he died (which was apparently correct) and a whole load of things about his dad - details which of course I couldn't verify; all I knew was that it was correct that his dad was recently deceased as he had told me that much.
So she did a cold reading. Ok, really fascinating stuff here lol
Every single thing that she told him he poo-poo'd, saying it was an easy guess about his father being dead, 'guessing' what he died of, 'guessing' (correctly) what his favourite tipple was, etc etc. She was coming out with more and more quite detailed stuff and he just flatly fobbed everything off as a lucky guess. She then actually addressed me - asking me "Is he always this stubborn?" I said I don't really know as we'd only just met.
Haha, so when she was obviously failing with him, she moved to you, and her first assumption she was WRONG about you and his relationship! OMG, this medium is useless!
Then she said to him "I'm not giving up with you - I will come back to you". She went on then to give messages to every single person in that room - and they were really detailed specific things that she was giving - telling (no questions or 'sounds like' or 'feels like' stuff). She was supposed to be there for an hour, but went way over the time (much to the angst of the chairperson) because she insisted she wanted everyone there to get a message and didn't want anyone to miss out.
Show me the footage of her appearence on Wogan, I 100% guarantee you she was cold reading, and I can easily expose her methods.
Then, when everyone had been messaged and she was virtually being pushed out the door as they had to close the building(!) she said "Just one more thing ... Mister Stubborn down there by the wall ... I just want to say one thing to you" - and she gave an address; a door number, a street name and a place name in Liverpool - and said "Does that mean anything to you?"
Hahahahahahaha. OMFG lol.
Sorry that made me laugh.
If true, she just hot read your friend and conned the shit out of you. or of course you are lying!
She "knew" the address he was born, but didn't know that you and he were virtual strangers! HAHAHAHAHA
How gullible can you be!
He then told me that the address that she had called out right at the very end was the exact address in Liverpool where he was born and where he had lived for the first 14 years of his life. (He was then 27 and living in London.)
And only that had convinced him. That medium was genuine. Her name was Marion Dampier-Jeans.
So is there any actual proof of this event? A recording, something tangible, or is it just another one of your ridiculous stories from 30 years ago?
A quick google of her name. Oh dear. lol
So your "proof" of a real medium, is a decades old story, when you would have had even less knowledge then than you do now (if thats possible) of the methods of trickery. Something that isn't recorded.
OMG, this is like me telling someone about a Paul Daniels magic show from 30 years ago and saying it was real magic because there was no way he could have faked it!
Do you understand why I laugh at you so much, why you come across as such a joke, when that is the best you have to offer!
Not only did your friend get conned, but you did too!
Go find me a recording of her in English of her giving ANYONE a reading, you transcribe it, and I will show you step by step how she does it! How does that sound!
You really are a fool you know
