UnpredictaBULL – Scottish Psychics
January 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Every December a string of ‘psychics’ across the world use their clairvoyant powers to make predictions for the coming year, with varying degrees of success. A quick look online shows a vast array of other supernatural talents allegedly on display. In this talk Brian Eggo from the organizer team of Glasgow Skeptics will take a look at things a little closer to home:
- What type of predictions have Scottish psychics made in the past?
- How well do they measure up to their online hype in their live performance?
- How much do they charge for sharing their ‘gift’ with you?
- Will they be willing put their powers to the test?
Brian will also make a bold attempt to recreate the recreation of ‘The Hurkos Experiment’ – prepare to be underwhelmed!
About the Speaker:
Brian is the main organiser and primary mouthpiece of Glasgow Skeptics. As such, he has an unhealthy interest in the equally amusing and frustrating realms of woo & pseudoscience. This has caused him to spend way too much of his own money on the type of things he encourages other people not to spend their money on. He occasionally dabbles in skeptical activism when prompted, and has been known to make some awful puns on podcasts. His day job is in Training & Development, which explains a lot.
This is event is free to attend, although we will be asking for donations at the end of the talk. Participants are under no obligation whatsoever to donate, however please rest assured that the money we collect doesn’t end up in anyone’s pocket – it is used to fund our overhead costs, and travel/accommodation for our speakers who come from further afield.
Accessibility: As per the policy of the Admiral Bar, access to the venue “can only be provided to patrons who are sufficiently mobile and capable of independently evacuating premises, or with the minimum of assistance”. Unfortunately, this leaves the basement inaccessible to most wheelchair users.
