World: Skeptic calls guru’s “I’ll kill you on live TV” bluff, walks away alive

Clearly, since he’s talking about the experience, he survived, and he’s ready to gloat: “He was over, finished, completely destroyed!” Edamaruku, whose goal is to push Indian mysticism out of society, has built up the Indian Rationalists’ Association to 100,000 members over the last 25 years. He’s not a playa, he just crushes a lot. source
