    I suppose Randi was happy that he didn't have to cough up the million bucks. [​IMG]

    I'm sure Randi was never worried [​IMG]
    Anyway, one can read his discussion here. Be sure to follow the link to the Oliver Wendall Holmes article.

    Classic (linked from Julie's link)
    Don't know if that's been tossed around on HTF but I found it an apt summation of the moon hoax arguments. I'm sure certain members and moderators will get a laugh out of that.

    Max, Julie has been in HTF hibernation. It will take some effort to keep her activated. More threads that support a critical worldview would help. So, thanks for waving the Official James "Amazing" Randi Skeptics' Flag.
    My horoscope said this would be a great day! [​IMG]

    Max,
    Yes, it's been a while [​IMG]
    Jack,
    That's right - I couldn't resist an Amazing Randi thread! Although I did come out of hibernation a couple of days ago over in Software when I had to gush over a new DVD set I recently got.

    I'm astounded that you wasted a few moments to actually read your horoscope!

    Just wanted to chime in that the famous ghosts thread here on HTF got me into reading www.randi.org. I look forward to reading the weekly commentary every friday during lunch.

    My cousins are big believers in homeopathy. One of them told me with a straight face "We don't use allopathy(traditional medicine) unless we are really sick." It took all of my self control not to burst out laughing to her face.

    replied RobertR correctly. [​IMG]
    Know something? I can't account for about two hours of time last Saturday evening. So help me, one moment is was about 9:30 p.m. Then the next thing I remember it was 11:30. I could tell because the bottle of Jagermeister knocked the clock onto the floor, which is where I was when I saw it.

    It's got to be aliens, Jack. Lost time is a classic symptom. How could anyone doubt the evidence?

    It's puzzling though as to why they drank up all your Jagermeister. I've never seen anything on the X-Files to explain that one, but obviously it was they who misplaced the bottle just before they left your house.

    I love Randi, and his website. The article on Sylvia Brown is hilarious.

    A sample:

    Jagermeister must be an alien concoction...why would any human want to make that stuff? Yechh. Humans are foolish enough to drink it though. No offense intended, Jack.

    I think Randi needs a television show, where he tours around the country debunking all this foolishness. But, admittedly, he would need a co-host with Playboy-bunny statistics to keep it on the air, with cameos by David Hasselhoff to complete the evil triad.

    Oh crap, somebody slipped a mickey of Jagermeister into my drinking water again. *shakes fist at Christou's mind control orbital laser platform*
