When we covered the Peaceful Century‘s hoax about Queen Elizabeth taking a bus to force fuel prices to drop by 20%, we noted how quickly it turned viral. This brought Peaceful Century (a blog) lots of new likes and plenty of shares. Our opinion on their lack of ethics aside, it showed just how gullible people are.
For them to believe such a ridiculous hoax, they would have to swallow three wildly improbable lies :
- Oil prices are set by a certain entity.
- Queen Elizabeth can influence oil prices.
- A queen sitting on a bus for two days can force oil prices down.
So it comes to great surprise when we caught a PSYCHIC falling for this absurd hoax. 😀
Psychic Ken Robert
Psychic Ken Robert professes to be “a Gifted Psychic Medium Clairvoyant with profound intuition“. He claims to have written four books (or as he calls them, “book’s” [sic]) and even has an online radio show on psychic readings and the paranormal.
Yet, when Peaceful Century posted the “UK Queen took the bus for 2 days” hoax, he fell for it hook, line and sinker. He not only shared the hoax post, but also added the comments “Good move your Highness.. A long life to you” :
We then posted the screenshot above and tagged him, with the comment :
A psychic getting this ridiculous claim so wrong? Unbelievable…
That’s when he realised his mistake. Instead of posting a public comment on our post, he PMed me directly :
Hmm.. I wonder what was that “something” in that photo that bothered him… LOL! 😀
Well, before I could respond, he blocked me from his personal Facebook account. I don’t know why he bothered to PM me. As a psychic, Ken Robert should have known in advanced what my response would have been. 😉
If you aren’t sufficiently convinced now that Psychic Ken Robert is no psychic, feel free to listen into his weekly radio show on psychic readings and the paranormal. Be sure to ask him for a winning number on the next lottery! LOL!
