how do you find out if an octopus is psychic?

Ahaha. I read this yesterday, I knew it’d be something you’d enjoy πŸ˜›

I wish our country had a psychic octopus.

Being a psychic myself, I agree with octopussy. ooooooooooooooooooooo controversial!!!!!!

If the ‘Psychic Octopus’ belives it to be so, I am afraid England have just had their chips….!! πŸ˜‰

Just when you thought the psychic industry couldn’t get any weirder (or dafter)…It excels itself.

I know a medium sloth…. he channels dead people most of the day. (Thats why he doesn’t move around much.)
Hes very talented.

All kneel before the awesome power of the Psychic Octopus. Germany wiped the floor with us. πŸ™

Tony says:

Well, he was right after all πŸ™


June 27, 2010 at 7:18 pm

Hmm ok, so it was right in predicting a German victory. Now I’d like to see it with 40 sets of colours before it and predict next year’s Grand National winner…… πŸ˜‰

yeah, but did he get the spread? πŸ˜›

Gavin says:

He had a 50/50 chance here, I would be more inclined to believe it if he could predict every winner of every match. Not just for Germany but all of the remaining matches in this yearÒ€ℒs world cup, I think thatÒ€ℒs reasonable for a claim this bold. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence .

Anton says:

The irony is that the octopus is as genuine a psychic as the people who claim to be psychic!

Ben says:

Haha if only Capello had consulted the octopus…

Maura says:

That octopus should do a TV special on his fool-proof system for picking the football winners.

Between this, toxoplasma and the Hypnotoad it looks like the animal kingdom is trying to muscle in on Derren’s turf.

That said the octopus doesn’t possess any genuine psychic skills, he was simply analysing agragate statistics over the last 50 or so years.

Next match, I’m putting a fiver on the octopus πŸ˜›

Haha! Wicked! Ya know, I sometimes think my dog is psychic……lol. He’s a cwever boy! πŸ˜€

I’m a believer….in psychic octopus only! I think he deserves Randi’s million! =)

Any chance you can give him 49 balls and get him to pick 6 random ones?

Hey!
Don’t take the piss out of people that believe in this, the octopus was correct wasn’t it?

I’m not psychic and could have predicted the result ……

This year’s WC is going to be a Dutch treat the rumour is …

Daniel says:

The notion of a psychic octopous predicting football results is clearly ridiculous and only a credulous moron would believe it. What’s actualy going on here is an attempt by sea faring animals to undermine our economy by fixing sporting events and placing massive bets on the results. The dolphins are behind this, mark my words, slippery little gits…
