SAN JOSE -- Amid inspirational talk, chanted mantras and shouts of victory at a late-night firewalking event attended by thousands Thursday came agonized shrieks from followers whose soles were scorched by the superheated coals, witnesses said.
At least 21 people were treated for burn injuries after taking part in the crowning event of the first day of a Tony Robbins function downtown, including at least three who went to the hospital, a San Jose fire captain said.
Back in the late 80s when Anthony Robbins did his thing nobody got their tootsies burned, or would admit to it. He had such a smile, he was so tall--half his audience orgasmed in their pants just watching him talk. And his audience was 80% sales-people, so not so easy to bamboozle--its hard to con a con, as they say.
