Uri Geller Claims Massive Mind Power Responsible For iPhone 6 Bending
Uri Geller, the Israeli magician and self-proclaimed psychic who rose to fame in the 1970s by claiming he could bend spoons with his mind, now claims he knows why the new iPhone 6 is so prone to bending.
“There are two possible explanations. Either the phone is so seriously thin and flimsy that it is bendable with mere physical force, which I cannot believe given the extensive tests Apple would have done. Or — and this is far more plausible — somehow the energy and excitement of the 10 million people who purchased iPhones has awakened their mind powers and caused the phones to bend.”
The once popular spoon bender wants to convince Apple executives to hire him as a public spokesman who would explain to the dissatisfied customers that the company has nothing to do with the phone’s bending.
“I urge Apple to hire me to explain to the world that this is not the company’s fault at all.”
However, we are not sure that Apple would be so eager to hire him since Geller admits he’s a Blackberry fan (the magician also claims that he can bend his Blackberry just by staring at it).
Apart from Geller’s loyalty to Blackberry, other magicians have shown that Geller’s signature act can easily be replicated. James Randi, the founder of the James Randi Educational Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting skeptical thinking, is one of those magicians.
“If Uri Geller bends spoons with divine powers, then he’s doing it the hard way.”
