I had known Raymond as a colleague for almost 4 months and he'd never mentioned before that he was a hypnotist or mentalist. When I finally googled his name I saw him count the number of face up cards in maybe two seconds on YouTube.
Initially I thought it was a trick so I tested him with estimating the number of lines written on a flip-over. He almost instantly said: "24 or 25". I counted them and it was 25!
During a dinner he influenced my choices several times. Then he went to predict the outcome of a game of tic-tac-toe! That was when he fried my mind! Especially because he did it in mirror image and he reminded me that he'd said a few minutes earlier give me your right hand... owe no sorry our left hand, it's in mirror image of course!
He also taught me to read his mind! Or as he calls it: guess someone's thoughts. Slowly but surely the word road came to mind.
All I can say is: "He's not only a computer programmer but also a people programmer."

Raymond performed a wonderful show in our company. Afterwards he took the time to answer all the questions that arose during his mind boggling experiments.
He then went to demonstrate some of the things in person, which was really thrilling. He's so different when he's performing in front of group than when he's performing in person!
The amount of personal information that he can get from my mentally created picture is just freaky!

Seeing Raymond, perform on stage is wonderful. On stage he's funny, a bit mad, sarcastic and not too serious about himself. But as soon as you are alone with him and you finally persuade him to do some stuff in person than he's suddenly very solemn nonetheless he still knocks your socks off!

At some point he asked me to say a random number. There was only one number I could think of and I said that number and he said: "Did you recall me opening my wallet briefly and seeing the 50 euro note?" -- he got his wallet out and there was the 50 euro note. The only digits of the serial number that were visible were those 5 digits I'd just said. It freaked me out! He's a real mind wizard!

He predicted my tic-tac-toe outcome.
He made me stop at a predetermined card.
He could explain so much details about my life just by looking at me drawing.
He made me describe a face and when I saw the picture I freaked out because that was the face I'd constructed.
He remembered 20 items and he could recall the item or the number, that was very amazing!
