Derren Brown Correctly Predicts National Lottery Numbers
Derren Brown, a popular illusionist in the United Kingdom, has attempted an impossible feat just recently. He predicted the National Lottery numbers

time. Then finally, the six winning numbers were shown on screen : 2, 11, 23, 28, 35, 39.
He held a card with the winning numbers written on it then turned over the line of balls to show to the public the numbers he had chosen before th
