Influence People

One can never fully trust the superhero who has the power of mind control. If you can get people to do things against their will, then it seems to be inherently evil. It’s no surprise that supervillains tend to exploit this power more. I mean, it seems like every superhero has had his/her mind controlled by a supervillain at some point… Well, okay, maybe not Aquaman. Seriously, what can he do for them? It’s not like they ever needed someone to clean a dirty aquarium or something.

What’s interesting is that of all the superpowers to choose from, mind control is the one power that is the most attainable in real life. You can learn techniques to make people do what you want them to do. Just promise me to use it for entertainment purposes only and not for evil.

Check out Derren Brown in this video I found.

I heard from my friend Mike that Derren Brown is going to have a show, premiering on July 26th, 2007 on the Sci Fi Channel. For some reason, I am compelled to watch it…

  1. Yeah, you heard from me about that show. Plagaristic something or other. I want a producer for this blog entry!

    and why is there a random smiley face just to the right and at the end of your blog? Are you hypnotizing me?

  2. Mike, I edited the blog entry to credit you for the Derren Brown info. And you want to give me your wallet…

  3. I would give you my wallet but it is mysteriously gone…

  4. I don’t believe this video I think its a scam, how did he get that guy to give him his stuff? I think this was a set up, I’m not sure if he hypnotized the guy or what?

  5. Scott,

    Check these other Derren Brown videos:

    Birthday Gift
    Train of Thought
    Predictable Humans
    Phone Mindread

    The first one actually features Simon Pegg from “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz”.

  6. Wow those are pretty funny. What is the deal with the guy and a bmx bicycle and a tricycle? He must work on that speech a lot to get the people to answer the way he wants? Or maybe he just likes bikes?
