Sylvia’s huge double miss

When I saw the headline that J-lo had her twins, my first reaction was “Hey, I didn’t know J-Lo was pregnant.” Then I clicked on the link for Miss Manners to see if she had any new advice for me. That’s how much I cared.

Then I came across this little morsel of information – Sylvia Browne’s 2007 prediction for J-Lo is that, though she wants to, she cannot or will not have any babies and that she “has something wrong there”, “off-kilter” if you will.

Man, is there a bigger miss than twins when the prediction is 0 babies?

This is the best video I could find, if anyone else finds a better one, let me know.

  1. I've had a ton of email regarding this at StopSylviaBrowne.com since the pregnancy was rumored, but I've been waiting until the babies were delivered before writing it up. Since Friday, I've received more than a dozen emails from people wanting to make sure I knew.

    I guess I need to write an article on it, if only to let people know I'm aware of it!

    I checked your site before posting this to see if you had anything.

    I was so proud of myself when you didn't.

    Now I've already ordered my Skeptical Superhero cape, a large fan, outdoor speakers and a copy of Whitney Houston's "One Moment in Time" so I could stand on my lawn, cape blowing in the wind and have people admire me for the time I took down Sylvia Browne.

    *sigh*

  3. She is on that show every week, Bruce. And she is never called out on her many blunders. Just praised for the occasional thing she gets right by chance.

    I'mnot so sure about that… I mean, shouldn't random chance indicate a higher correct prediction rate than she gets? I mean, I've never actually looked at the numbers, but I'm pretty sure a blind monkey flipping a coin would hit more often than she does.

  4. If she’s truly psychic, then she knows that no man or woman would EVER have sex with her.

    She's been married a couple of times and has at least one kid out of the deal with the first guy… soooooo… {shudder}

    Then I’d do it just to prove her wrong.

    No. No you wouldn't. No. That's not a good idea. That's not good science. That's… well… that's just sick.

    and hello Rebbecca(?)

    love the podcast.

    I'm not Rebecca, I'm just one of her bloggy minions. But she is bouncing around here somewhere.

    Welcome to Skepchick, Brent.

    Fair enough. Perhaps I should have said "uneducated guessing."

    If she’s truly psychic, then she knows that no man or woman would EVER have sex with her.

    She has been married four times, and has had children by two different men, so I think it likely that she has had sex.

  6. I checked your site before posting this to see if you had anything.

    I was so proud of myself when you didn’t.

    Well, I am glad that my laziness and lack of motivation over the past few days has brought you some joy.

    Now I’ve already ordered my Skeptical Superhero cape, a large fan, outdoor speakers and a copy of Whitney Houston’s “One Moment in Time” so I could stand on my lawn, cape blowing in the wind and have people admire me for the time I took down Sylvia Browne.

    I'm still trying to find a Big & Tall Skeptical Superhero store in my area.

    :(

  7. Your a sick bastard Brent but way to take one for the team.

    *totally body shiver* I wonder if she cold-reads while in the sack.

    "You really like sex with crazy people. Is there a crazy woman having sex with you right now? I bet you've had an orgasm before, amiright?"

    I'm gonna throw-up a little as I try to erase the thought of Sulvia's "O-face"… happy early Wednesday, east-coasters.

  8. Ick. You guys have totally ruined my humpday.

    Me?

    Is it that you're picturing my pale little body ascending the human landfill that is Sylvia Browne?

    Don't worry, she's not completely nude, she's wearing plastic wrap around her torso and is on her period.

    There, I hope that helped your "hump" day, I know it helped mine.

  9. The goggles, they do nothing!

    I think the only way to burn this mental image out of my brain is by watching lots of porn …

    behind you, Radio Active Man!

    It doesn't work for me, the porn thing, the images just fuse and conjoin.

    Before you know it, I'm going down hermaphrodite, siamese, Sylvia Browne triplets all of which happen to be heavily menstruating or ejaculating. Ya know depending on which gender the parents decided to go with. They all have bowl cuts.

    thanks.
