News: Bend spoons with your brain

Bend spoons with your brain

When arch-skeptic Michael Shermer has you in his crosshairs, the act is over. Criss Angel has been debunked on WonderHowTo many times before. But this disclosure of the famous spoon bend is unlike the others.

Spoonbending is the signature move of paranormal evangelists like Uri Gellar. Bent spoons were often used as a clear illustration of the mind's telekinetic powers.

There are few men like Michael Shermer. Editor in chief of Skeptics Magazine, Shermer is a fascinating contributor to the world of instructional video. Sherman is a true devotee to the art of the debunk, from his TED Talks on human belief systems to his hosting of various television programs.

Shermer might not explain the steel bend, but here's a hint: rotate.

Sorry Criss Angel, but Shermer has a spot for you, right between the Scientologists and the UFO spotters.
