“She was shot”

One of the hard and fast rules of cold reading is that you must never admit to making a mistake. If you guess wrong, it’s your spirit guide, the person you’re talking to or, as a last resort, reality that’s at fault.

Thanks to robotman for these:

You may have read about Shawn Hornbeck, the boy kidnapped in 2002 and feared dead until he was discovered last week living at the house of the man who kidnapped him. The woman in these clips, Sylvia Browne, told Shawn’s parents in 2003 that he was dead—specifically, “in a wooded area about 20 miles southwest of [the town where they lived]... near two large, jagged boulders that seem out of place in that area”.

Also, she predicted that the miners trapped in the West Virginia mine tragedy in 2005 would be rescued.

A reading with Sylvia over the phone, lasting for 20-30 minutes, costs only $750. The only other psychic in the world that she recommends—her son—is available for $450 a pop.

I'm with your neighbours on this one, hapless cow.

I think it would take more than a strategic bucket of water to discourage this one.

No prob.

This is tricky for me. I can't imagine how distraught I would be if one of my sons was to disappear...perhaps I would turn to religion, drink, or even this kind of thing, just for some kind of reassurance, so I can't condemn the people who go to 'cold readers' to ease their pain. Whatever works.

But the 'readers', or 'liars' as we call them round my way...words fail me. These people know, for a fact, that they're making it up and exploiting the vulnerable in society.
