Well I was watching a Greek show right now.

You know its a fact that many years ago an English President stole bricks from Greek ancient monuments.Now they still have em in a museum.

Well in this particular show Uri Geller (psychic) stopped the function of Big Ben!!!!!!!!!

And he wont stop it until English Government returns what it stole!

I dont know if its a scam or not.

Can someone confirm this?

Just looked it up and apparently it did happen in 1997.

About all the thing that England stole from various countries, what's most ironic is that they're in the "British Museum".

Well Im not sure if its true as the majority of people think hes fake.But in this particular show he said to put spoons on television and they will be curved but that wouldnt work on all people.I put a spoon on the TV and it wasnt curved.

But one of my friends told me that his spoon was curved.

I really dont know what to believe about this guy..

I saw Uri Geller back in the old day's and he actually did this with the spoons, but I was a little sceptic. He's really an illusionist, there must have been some trick behind it. Yeah, England stole a lot, but they have also returned some. I was in Egypt a couple of years ago and then they have returned a lot of the Pharaoh treasures that originally was brought to England...

Yeah but how you explain the fact that the moment he tells <<people put your spoons on tv>> and then they are curved.
How can that be an illusion.

Not only that but he also tells to put electrical appliances on tv which are not working and then they work!!

For me neither for this or for the spoons worked.

Darknodar have you watched any of the exposed videos yet srsly? i told you to look, then this whole stupid uri geller thing would be concluded >.<
I am not againts uri geller, hes a good magician, illusionist etc but its not magic.


Yeah but did you see the comments above?Uri -while on show- tells people to put theirs spoons on TV.

And after a while they are really curved.That happened to my friend too.That couldnt have been illusion.


Also if Big Ben doesnt still work why should we doubt him?


In your vids it clearly explains that Uri is fake but bear in mind these things.

Are you on about Big Ben in london? you know Big Ben is the name of the bell for the clock, not the tower & clock itself? and it does work lmao...

sorry's but this is getting a bit stupid O.o

Also was your friend on the show or was he just watching it at home?


No he was at home and I know he wouldnt lie.


I dont know details what exactly did he stop.He just said <<BIG BEN>>.Also it works?

Well then he must be an illusionist.
