I've already mentioned that my man Randi has started a new video series, but I wanted to call your attention to this week's in particular. Randi is on his game here, funny and fierce and unlikely to let an empty threat of a lawsuit slow him down from putting a pin in someone's balloon; in this case, a dowser. Watch, learn, and enjoy. I love how open and unbiased these guys always are. It's not "Hey, let's give this a shot", it's name-calling and claims of fraud and telling Randi he has to shut down the JREF. Fat chance. And giving away the Million Dollars does not mean the JREF gets shut down; there's way more nonsense out there than there are people promoting reality, so, sadly, we'll always have work to do.
