Nope. Not debunked because showing how it COULD have been done is not the same as proving that it WAS done that way. Especially given the recorded history of young children who claimed to be able to bend spoons (examine the background to the subject).

You will need:
Step 1: remove the handle from one of the spoons (vigorous bending will do this).
Step 2: bend the second spoon to an appealing angle.
Hold the bent spoon in your hand, with the bowl hanging down, and the handle concealed from your as yet thoroughly unimpressed audience.
The Trick: Balance the precut spoon handle on top of the bent spoon's neck, pinched between your thumb and forefinger; slowly let it tip, and fall down your cuff.
Bonus Points: Don't grin like an idiot, or draw attention to your cuffs.

If you notice, they all seem to have to put their hands on their laps as if trying to conceal something... There is 1 boy who doesn't do that and he looks like he is palming something...
Sorry OP, this is nothing but a really good magic trick...

Isn't it funny how people that allegedly have magical mental powers only seem to use it for cheap parlor tricks that any magician could do?
