              When he was working in a restaurant in Bristol before he was famous, my parents met him
              He went from table to table performing tricks. He made my Dad’s wedding ring float. They came back after a year or so to be told the restaurant couldn’t afford him anymore and that he had his own tv show lol

                  I remember when I was 9 years old I woke up at 12 o clock at night just to see one of Derren's shows on TV... He's a genius and totally legit!!!

                              James doesn't tell the audience that he is eating sugar glass. So why should we believe him when acts like Derren correctly guessed what he was thinking?

                                    These types of "think of anything" illusions are super lame, it's too unbelievable to, well, be believable. I can meet him halfway on some stuff, but this is so stupid that I can't possibly suspend my disbelief. AND it's boring to watch because the audience isn't in on it! It's all in James' head.
                                    I know this guy has better stuff than this.

                                              I love Derren Brown but I think he got this one wrong. He kept getting it wrong when James was chewing the glass and then after getting it wrong a few times finally says "ok just tell the truth now and dont lie" and then gets it right. Perhaps this is some sort of protocol if the trick doesnt work as it cant work 100% of the time and Derren knows that. Or maybe james took initiative himself and went along because he really likes Derren and wouldnt want to see him struggle. Also James is an actor so could have easily pulled the surprised card easily. I could be totally wrong but I think it could be possible too.

                                                I'm just wondering if CIA and the likes use this for their investigations. Is this even real in the first place?

He never wrote anything down, so we just have to take his word for it. A person could easily just say "OMG, that's totally what I was thinking of. Oh, and you got another thought I had as well, good job!" while the whole time they were thinking of Ryan Stiles from Whose Line. I hate that I'm like that, but that just how I see things like this.

He picks it back up and thats what is in the hosts mouth as he chews. :) Still sharp but certainly easier to eat with the apple without noticing the change of taste and dissolved with the water swished around.

I've watched this like 15 times trying to figure out where he snuck "match box" in... Definitely something to do with "Atlantic"... Also how he planted both so firmly in James' mind...
                                                                            Maybe they had a conversation before the show...
