Many rumours and theories flying about, but I'm waiting to see what he says on Friday.

I watched it last night after you mentioned it.

I remain confused and sceptical that it was in any way an actual 'prediction'. lol

Well, 9pm on Channel 4 is the time when it should be revealed.
People are suggesting CGI, camera syncing and e-ink as possible ways it is done. Personally, I don't think that he'd do that as he's been very forthright in his condemnation of people using tricks to make it look like they've done something. Look at his interview with Richard Dawkins where he's talking about spiritualists and mediums.
Of course, if there is some form of system that produces "random" numbers then this could be like Penn and Teller showing how magic tricks are done and make Camelot devise another system.

Derren Brown is cool but once you know some of his techniques and how they work, it's not the same thing to watch anymore. I like him though because he mixes illusionism with psychology to create results instead of just showing abs and being cliché like so many other.

Hm, some interesting theories...

Edit: and my two faves so far:

Quote :
"He really did guess the numbers. This might sound silly to some of you, but he does have a PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY. So he could have easily made a mental image of all the balls over the past year, and how they drop, angles, velocity, acceleration. The reason it had to be on 9/9/09 might be because of the earth's rotation/axis was perfect for him to accurately calculate all the variables. I think on friday we will all be in for a long lesson on physics... GO DERREN!!"
Sheer class:

Quote :
*Another idea in case my first one is wrong is that I he might have mentally suggested the lottery machine to pop out those numbers. I know this sounds crazy but just hear me out. If he can mentally manipulate and suggest things to people, then he can possibly do it for machines too.. after all they are man built. I am really curious to know what you guys think. ANy thoughts?
