  1. She did the right thing, but it's wrong to put people and animals, even plants, in danger. That's the point of the morality illusion. It's that simple. You should only risk yourself if that risk doesn't involve killing yourself. As a contractualist I believe such things as drawing my blood out for the Red Cross are the right thing. I told a person earlier I'm no longer a Buddhist but once a Buddhist always a Buddhist, it's wrong to lie.

  2. YASSSSS ERIC! I remember in grade 4 we were watching Brain Games on YouTube. We did it all the time at the end of the school day. I was in the bathroom. I walked through the door and suddenly, I see Eric Leclerc on the show and I was in awe. My jaw dropped. I ran into the room as if I were Sonic the Hedgehog and told everyone there. Nobody knew who he was accept for my friend named Jherzi. She watches Tricked and we were like eek! Probably one of the best episodes of Brain Games in my entire life! 😀

  3. This clip does nothing to highlight or explain the phenomenon he's trying to get at, it's also demonstrated with spikes and things that could harm the smasher. I would expect National Geographic to at least pretend that phenomenon is of interest. The actual demonstration is in such poor taste. By switching the condition of a fake to a live chick, what he demonstrates is he's a douche. Kudos for not cutting how upset the woman was. Again, is there a producer or director anywhere there who can tell me what the point of this was?

  4. Unnecessarily killing an animal like in this case for a game raises the question of morality, eating on the other hand is something completely different, that is a necessity.

  5. I live in a forgein country (kuwait) did u see the real chicks that he had. in my country u can buy them as pets but what they do is take them straight away when they are born and spray paint them blue green pink etc. And sell them as pets and they also die quick from the paint because it has chemicals ….. once i baught one and it grew to be a chiken once i came back from school one day and i found that my grandparents have cocked it by accident for dinner he didnt know it was mine i didnt eat anything's exept pancakes for 5 days RIP Archie i swear that i am not lying 😣


    If she had chosen number 1one it would have been game over, but she didn't and that's where the trick is. She didn't choose it at all until the end because of a technique this guy was using called neuro-linguistic programming, listen to how many times he says the number one.
