On this day (December 20) in 1946 the famous Israeli psychic Uri Geller was born in Tel Aviv. He is renowned for his psychokinetic ability to bend metal objects by stroking them with his fingers and to stop clocks simply by gazing upon them. His metal-bending and mind-reading abilities developed at the age of five when he was accidentally shocked by his mother's electric sewing machine. He began his career as a full-time professional stage performer in 1969.
As a side note, Uri Geller not only predicted last summer (when no one else thought there was a chance in the world of it happening) that Donald Trump would win the 2016 US Presidential Election, but also on meeting with Theresa May back in 2014, he told her that she was going to be the next Prime Minister!
