The guy boils water with his hands, then he stands on rice paper. Seriously, how does he do it?
how is this useful for fighting though unless you can actually cause damage not just emit enrgy with it.
I'd be very interested to see this fellow undergo some sort of scientific testing to determine if this is real or not. Then again, when you have a cape like that, you can probably do anything.
I saw David Copperfield make a plane disappear.
It probably wasn't useful for fighting either.
I just want to learn how to shoot fireballs and fly.
Is that too much too ask? sob sob
In general, I have found it a good practice to distrust any persons wearing a cape. This guy is not the exception. The infrared camera shows that both his hand and the towel + aluminum + liquid solution (maybe water, maybe something else) increase in temperature. It is likely that the thing increasing in temp is the aluminum foil/solution/towel which warmed up his hand as shown by the infrared camera. Aluminum can react with a number of solutions and increase in temperature as the reaction takes place. This would account for the heat.
The walking on rice paper is probably accounted for by the magical nature of his cape. Or it may be due to good technique. Spreading the weight evenly is probably key. A better measure of his proposed ability would be for him to stand on a scale and show objectively that he can decrease his weight...
Perhaps he used caustic soda (sodium hydroxide). Dissolve some in water, sprinkle it over the towel, stick in some aluminium foil, and you get a pretty full-on exothermic reaction.
2Al(s) + 6NaOH(aq) => 3H2(g) + 2Na3AlO3(aq) + HEAT
Just to avoid being sued, the above is NOT an instruction!! DO NOT try this.
an interesting site that explains many martial arts demos that some use to show their mastery of Qi and other such non sense
ill check out the link as soon as i get back from job hunting.
(Uses all of his will to go out the door...)
That site was so dumb. Kung fu do? Oh my god... Almost as bad as the superfraud "shaolin do".
Thanks for the good laugh.
Try explain this
Rangga and William...You created the monster I have become. My qi powers are increasing with every frying pan I crush and every qi healing I trick people into paying me for.
Qi-blast maybe common in sumo, but only Hayateumi would pass the rice-paper test. There must be a cape somewhere in his wardrobe.
MOre of the qigong master rubbing his hand across a red hot chain, and licking red hot iron, and biting a piece off.
Ive seen the licking thing before, the spit on the tongue evaporates before the tongue is burned.
this guy hangs from a florescent lightbulb and stands on balloons.
Nina kulagina. A supposed telekinetic.
and john chang, the guy turns on led's. lol
Im pretty sure these are all parlor tricks.
but how do we explain them?
Perhaps the match heads contained small bits of iron.
"but how do we explain them?"
Hmm, but it doesnt show james randi doing it with a plastic box over the items.
well, even if there was some psychic force involved, i dont think it would be that useful since its hard for her to move a tiny matchstick...
