    Did Charles manson actually make attorney Vincent Bugliosi's wristwatch stop running?

    The famous prosecutor of the Manson murders trial passed away in June, 2015. Here is a memorial page:
    Vincent Bugliosi (1934 - 2015) - Find A Grave Memorial

    There is a scene in the movie Helter Skelter in which the Manson character seemingly stares down Bugliosi and then Bugliosi looks at his watch and it has stopped, with Manson laughing and supposedly in-the-know about what happened to the watch. Does anyone know if this is true? I can't see Vincent Bugliosi allowing such a scene in the film that gives credence to Manson's "powers" unless it were true.

    Call me old school, but I don't believe that humans can have special powers...

    And for the record teenage girls, I don't believe in vampires, werewolves, or zombies either...

    I was expecting a punchline.

    I am disappointed.

    Yes it's true. Luckily his attorney bough a Philip Stein watch shortly after and natural frequency technology counterbalanced Mansons' evil spell, as well as, helped the attorney sleep better and improved his sexual vigor. At that point he bough a gold 58mm Invicta and it helped him attract hot women...

    Seriously, anyone got a moonphase watch on? Is it full moon or something?

    Yeah, this. There's no reason to even ask the question.

    (Of course I feel a similar sentiment when somebody here or elsewhere explains that he or she emits a natural murphyonic field that kills quartz watches.)

    Guys, I really really really do understand that there was a hack and that my password was reset, but I'm about to take a year off from WUS if you can't stop telling me about it every time I log in. With my password. That you reset.

    According to Bugliosi his watch did stop when Manson was staring at him, he wrote about it in Helter Skelter. Obviously coincidence but those sorts of things become legendary.
