Uri Geller's Loaded Balls
There was an interesting article in last weekend's Scottish Sun regarding Uri Geller, telekinesis and the infamous Scotland versus England football match back in 1996.
During the game, Uri hovered above Wembley Stadium in a helicopter and alleges that he moved the ball with the power of his mind a split second before Scotland's Gary McAllister attempted a penalty kick. McAllister missed and Scotland went on to lose 2-0.Uri had apparently perfected his"trick" whilst working for the C.I.A.
Geller claims in the article that he was wracked with guilt over his interference. He has apparently met with Gary subsequently to apologise. However, his guilt was somehow "released" - his words - after he purchased uninhabited Lamb Island in the Firth of Forth close to Edinburgh for £30,000 back in 2009.
For the uninitiated, Lamb Island came to Uri's attention via an article called the Pyramids of Scotland which explored the alleged correlations between itself, two neighbouring islands, the constellation Orion, the Knights Templar and Rosslyn Chapel. Plus more. The article has been revisited to include Uri's acquisition and can be found here.
