I just seen this video. It is sped up concentrating on the balls. They appear to move slightly which would point towards a simple split screen camera trick.

I doubt he'll tell us the truth tonight. He'll make some shit up to make him look smart. That's what he does best.

The Sun reckon this too. I hope it is different though, or his year of work would of been 364 days lazing around.

I'll miss this and watch something more interesting, don't want to waste an hour seeing how it was done just to find out he faked it. (Which he will have done.)

He is an illusionist and prediction-ist. He has done a number of crazy stunts on telly including playing Russian Roulette with himself until the last barrel which of course was the one with the bullet in.

And yeah, he is British.

No, how he did it. It was group trickery, but it worked. Then he explained a idea that would get him in jail. He didnt do that, he was just winding up the Beeb.

I found this;
Look, its not that difficult. Half of the screen was frozen while the balls were changed. The camera used was fixed on a tripod, and side-to-side movements were added digitally during playback (this can be rendered v quickly). The whole thing about using the wisdom of masses only applies for something which isn't totally random but desribed by a normal distribution (such as guessing the weight of an object). You can't use it to guess lottery numbers. A lot of people need to get a reality check.

It seemed very convincing, but I'm not buying his deep maths theory. Using 30 odd people to produce random numbers without being conscious of what they are writing, then managing to get the right numbers of something that is entirely randomly decided by a machine, in my mind, is not possible. But hey, at least now loads of idiots are going to start groups to try and produce the right numbers, it is inevitable. This will be entertaining.

I'll watch next weeks show just because even though I'm very skeptical and find it hard to believe stuff, i still enjoy watching them to see if it could or couldn't be possible.

Next weeks show has to work, or he will be a fake. It is called "control the nation"
