I knew a psychic once who was giving me some flannel about something courtesy of my dead Grandad who apparently was in the room speaking to her. I asked her to ask him what his middle name, it was a bit of an unusual name and was a bit of a running joke in our family, my reasoning being if he is there talking to her and wanted me to believe what he was spouting off about, he would tell her.
Turned out he was a bit reluctant to take the two seconds it would take to say it and prove that he was actually there that day but that is not to say all psychics are charlatans.
Take Psychic Nikki for example, her clients include movie stars, politicians, sportsmen and women and business folk and her website listed over 200 predictions for 2013 so let's review what she did actually foresee.
A fire and explosion at a subway in New York City kills many.

Stock markets world-wide will close for one week.
Seattle, Washington in ruins after a large earthquake.

Oh dear Psychic Nikki, poor doesn't even begin to cover it. Hang on, what's that Grandad? You can see into Psychic Nikki's future and can see her being ignored by movie stars, politicians, sportsmen and women and business folk in the near future. Bet she didn't see that one coming!
