A note to Derren Brown...

Instead of mentally projecting your mentalism thoughts, type them here.

When is the last time a mind reader has been asked by a spectator:"Ok..how many fingers am I holding behind my back!?" or..."If you are a mindreader what finger am I thinking of!?"

Does this make sense to anyone?

I'd just reply "you know what finger I'm thinking of?".

After the Jim Carey movie, perhaps more than we imagine.

Umm, didn't Derren Brown actually do this? I'm pretty sure it was in season one.

The obvious answer to the question, "How many fingers do I have behind my back," would be:

(a) 5, if one hand is behind the back.

(b) 10, if two hands are behind the back.

Of course, this assumes no missing or extra fingers.

To the question, "What finger am I thinking of?" I'd answer, "The usual one."

Actually, Bob - Isn't it FOUR fingers and ONE thumb...or EIGHT fingers and TWO thumbs :)

Not if you're talking to Meir Yedid or Rene Lavand.

When was the last time you did a show?
When was the last time you did a TV show
When was the last time you had a girlfriend?

You just talk and talk
and talk and talk
We know you here in Israel
We know you just talk and talk

1) Farmer and Gordon's responses are priceless and go into the file bank for when that happens because if you were asked that and replied with either their responses (with an impish grin) you would not only have a great out but it would look like a clever ad-lib.

2) Should the Israeli response not be "Sheket B'Vakasha"?
