The Amazing Randi on Youtube...

For some odd reason it never occurred to me that the James Randi Educational Foundation would have a Youtube Channel. I mean, there's dozens of videos about Randi on Youtube, but I suppose I never thought to go right to the source. In any event, the next time you have a couple of hours to spare, head over to Randi's channel and browse through some of the 95 videos archived there. It's all great stuff, and a lot of the videos aren't available elsewhere.

Embedded below is a story about one of my favorite Randi moments, Project Alpha. Project Alpha was a scheme in which Randi captured a couple of amateur magicians and used them to infiltrate a "serious university study" of paraspsychology. Using simple sleight of hand, the two easily fooled some of the country's most "distinguished" parapsychologists into they that they were the genuine article. They eventually outed themselves at a huge press conference that was called to unveil their "psychic" powers to the public. Enjoy!

I note that they don't have the infamous Randi/Gellar steel cage deathmatch video. That one was classic...

"Look at the ANGLE OF THE KEY....see that, see that...."

Visit:

to see how we stopped the MILLION DOLLAR PARANORMAL challenge.....
watch carefully the consequences of Randi's *idea*.....

For over 40 years James Randi Zwigert (is this even a REAL NAME?) has
had total control over who and how the testing was conducted, yet
despite all this he has terminated the challenge.

The ONLY REASON why the challenge was stopped is because he lost and
refused to pay.
Apparently, Randi likes to break the rules when it serves him:

"14. This prize will continue to be offered until it is awarded. Upon
the death of James Randi, the administration of the prize will pass
into other hands, and it is intended that it continue in force. "

Great force.....it's over......

where is my MILLION DOLLARS, you LITTLE *NO-NAME* FRAUD
PS: Almost Forgot: Love the IRONY of the *BULLSHIT* sign over Randi's
ugly head....
