sorry i didn't read that.
I agree with you. But we'll never know how he did it.

The unbendable arm thing is good fun.

Some daft girl in a pub some months back was telling me about the
power of crystals. when you find the correct one for you, hold it in
your hand and your arm will go stiff.
she showed her boyfriend how to test for this, and that night she was
amazed . all of the crystals she had were right for me!@!

Then a F**ked it up by getting too drunk. Then just about everything
became the healing cystal for me. the beer mat healing cystal didn't
go down to well. :)

I've dressed the trick up as suggestion to other people that they will
not be able to bend my arm. No matter how much I relax, they will not
be able to bend my arm.
then I tell them to tence there arm and bend it(at the elbow) for them.
But as I said if you knew aikido(and you do) its not very mind control
like.

but its 1% of the puzzle that makes the effect that build upon effect
that sells the whole thing.
