The fact is that James Randi
, in his guise as debunker
of paranormal hoaxes
can never be particulary interesting.
He had a TV show in the UK, where for six episodes, people would come on and fail to perform magic, or mind reading or something.
That's not entertainment - I can fail to bend spoons using mind control myself, in the pub.
Maybe one day, someone will win Randi's money: that would be interesting: we'd get to see Randi lose a load of money, and at the same time my whole personal belief system (that the paranormal is bunk) will collapse.
I think that Randi would quite like to lose that money. It'd be worth it to see a really good magic trick...
