Last Show Recap

Feats of Mind

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate.

In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Feats of Mind

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - March 19, 2009
Host: George Noory
Guests: Jim Karol

Appearing for the first two hours, entertainer and magician Jim Karol shared some of his feats of mind & memory. He has memorized over 10,000 names of people he's encountered through his performances, and associated their names with a country, celebrity, or a movie. He tells these people "if they ever see me at any time in my life, whether it's at their school, at a mall, at a show, if I don't know the celebrity, movie or country that I gave them, they get $100 right on the spot." He uses a recall technique based on the spelling of their name.

Karol said he exercises his brain to keep it sharp, and also practices proper breathing techniques. He recommended the Do As One Project, which seeks to raise awareness of "healthy conscious breathing."

He also spoke about his ability to tell whether someone is telling the truth, revealing one of his cues that a person is lying-- their pupils dilate. He praised the work of Banachek, a mentalist (a magician who does mind reading) who has served as a consultant for many magic shows on TV. Karol shared a prediction: As 2012 arrives, C2C will have 100 million listeners, and the alien civilization that helped our ancestors will return to assist us in this time of change. They won't go to the White House, rather they'll spread their message on C2C.

The last half of the show featured Open Lines.
