Penn and Teller: Bullshit
    #1322819 - 02/20/03 05:41 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Man, I wish I could get this show up here in Canada. Penn and Teller expose everything from ESP to second hand smoke to alternative medicine for the bullshit it is.

Maybe I can get some episodes on Kazaa.

Have you heard of the Skeptical Enquirer?

"CSICOP encourages the critical investigation of paranormal and fringe-science claims from a responsible, scientific point of view and disseminates factual information about the results of such inquiries to the scientific community and the public."

I have indeed. I'm also a fan of Skeptic magazine.

Penn and Teller are the shit! Not only are they good magicians (hated by most other magicians), but they are funny as hell. Let us know if you have any luck on Kazaa.

CSICOP is a great site, gotta be careful not to be TOO skeptical though.

CSICOP is a great read but one has to remember that they are functioning under a limited paradigm, i.e. empiricism. I have also personally found them in giving out false information.

But, all in all, I think they are pretty good.

Cheers,

Found nothing on Kazaa. Ah well, it's on Showtime for you americans.

I really wanted to see the one where they tore down the psychic mediums.

You know what would be a great reality TV show? You take douchbags like John Edward, and have intelligent, funny people tear down their egos by exposing their disgusting frauds, humiliating, and insulting them. I'd watch that.

Penn and Teller are GREAT. The Amazing Randi is pretty damn good too, but Penn and Teller are funny as well as great.

AHAHAHAHAHAA!!!! Of course, that show would only last for a couple of episodes because they would'nt be able to get anybody on!! LmaO!!! We could pose it as a legit psychic show!

HEh, if you had put the words "humiliation" and "insulting" in italics in your post.... I would've died...

I ate dinner with Penn and Teller after one of their shows about eight years ago.  They are very cool, and a lot different off stage than on.  They both talk, for example!  :smile:  Although they reveal many tricks of the trade, they do a lot of illusions that are not explained.  Their shows are worth seeing if you get the chance.

Penn & Teller are great. I got a seat next to the stage at their last show here in Denver so I could see their stuff from only about 10 - 30 feet away (depending on where they stood on stage). While a few of their stage bits are classic stuff that you can figure out, their best stuff is a lot tougher. I find myself being impressed most by tricks I can figure out that clearly require a great deal of skill to perform well.

They do give away secrets on tricks, but the tricks they're giving away are mostly old ones that you could learn from a book on magic. The really cool tricks they don't even give hints on. And sometimes the trick is that there is no trick.

After each show they hang around and chat and sign autographs or pose with fans for photos. I strongly recommend that anybody who gets the chance should go to see one of their shows.

Happy mushrooming!
