He Said That? 6/12/17

From Jay Leno (born 1950), American comedian, actor, philanthropist and television host:

How come you never see a headline like “Psychic Wins Lottery”?

One response to “He Said That? 6/12/17

  1. I have always used an example very much like this to demonstrate the sheer nonsense of such magical thinking.

    Place this ad the paper (remember the old days?) or online:

    “ATTENTION ALL PSYCHICS! $100,000,000 PRIZE! CALL TO WIN!!!”

    And don’t include the phone number.

    (Now that I think about it, this is pretty much exactly what James Rand and The Sceptic Society has been offering forever now!)
