I believe he has mental powers, I feel I might be in a completely different context to Uri though.

BTW James Randi is my hero. :tu:

Hey DKO


That was more than excellent viewing, thank you for that, do you know if Randi has done much in the way of television? This was brilliant, I'd like to see a full show.

I particularly liked the little jokes, like the psychic surgeon at the end, I had almost forgotten about those psychic surgeons, I wonder if anyone is still working that scam?

I can bend spoons and forks too! I draw the line at knives though. ouch!

I saw that Tonight Show episode when I was 7 or 8.  It kicked off a long phase where I read all the magic books and psychic books at the library I could get my hands on. I could bend spoons and the famous yahoo on TV couldn't. Sometimes I'd guess the song on the radio before it came on so I was psychic.  I thought I was magic too, even if i was following instructions that apply to physics, not magic. I shook the stupid notion pretty quick. But I kind of wonder if some of these screwball adults out there who are suppossedly psychic or perform "extreme" magic still think they really are special.

Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name.

I bet some do.

LOL, I remember when I was about 4 or 5 that  I thought you could train yourself to be a superhero! I remember "training" myself for what seemed forever, must have been days! And when I thought I was ready I promptly tried to fly right of the laundry roof.

To this day I still am trying to work out where I went wrong :lol: Bet my Mum had a laugh.

Cheers mate. Yes he has done a lot of TV work.

http://en.wikipedia....ndi#TV_and_film

He has the One Million Dollar Challenge. If someone can prove to him in controlled conditions that they have paranormal powers he will give them one million dollars. It's been going since the 70s I think and no one has won, many have tried though. He had a TV show based on that, people would come on the show and show their alleged powers, he would prove them wrong every time.

I think he was on a couple episodes of Penn & Tellers: Bullsh!t. Which is a good show as well if you haven't seen it.

There are many good videos of him on Youtube too.

Here's a couple. (sorry if it's a little off topic guys).

Hi DKO

Thanks a million, they were great viewing. I had heard of the million dollar challenge through his website, I have visited the forums but never seen him in person, Quite an amazing character! I didn't remember him from Happy Days, but the HBO special sounds great, I will be tracing that one down. I have not watched a full episode of P&T but seen snippets and heard alot about them I am going to have to get into that.
Thanks again mate, I owe you one. How's WA, getting cold over in the East. I have visited Perth, and spent a couple weeks in Esperance, loved the place.

How good is that matchbox, I have to try that one!

Cheers.

I'm glad you enjoyed them. He definitely is a character, funny, clever and polite. I've watched a lot of his videos on youtube and his website. There are a few heated debates between him and psychics, the whole time he is nothing but polite and respectful while the psychics resort to name calling and personal attacks.

Yeah P&T even say that James Randi and Houdini were the main inspirations for their show.

Haha the matchbox is a good one. I seen a video on youtube where in Australia during the 80s or 90s, 60 Minutes or Today Tonight (forget which one) got him to come here and debunk some psychic going around. I forget how it turned out but it was a good one. (cant find the video atm, not at home).

Yeah starting to get cold, hailed a bit today. I miss the summer haha. The only eastern city I've been to is Melbourne, awesome city. Gotta check out the east coast a bit more though. Been to Bali a lot more than places in my own country lol.
