Crystal Balls and Bull

Michael Shermer, author, Skeptic and Scientific American columnist, explains why psychics aren’t real for John Stossel on 20/20 on ABC. This particular seer had her client purchase a $20,000 watch in order to “turn back the hands of time” to reverse a curse. It’s too much to hope that this was a Donald Trump watch.

Shermer’s annual Skeptic convention draws thousands random nerds, atheists, and magicians, including his big cool friends Penn and Teller. Their Showtime series Bullshit has gathered 3 Emmy nominations. How is NBC going to keep from stepping in it–can they say that name on TV?
