Does anybody know who James Randi is? If you don't, shame upon yee! he is up there with Penn and Teller in terms of 'magical' trickery and exposing it.
basically, he is offering a million dollars (last i checked) to anyone who can prove that they have psychic/paranormal powers of any kind. All they have to do, is prove it in a scientific setting where controls and tests can be observed.
You might be asking then, why the magicians and psychics all around the world don't come to claim this prize. Why don't the pet whisperers, or those who can talk to the dead, or the faith healers, or anyone of that nature come forward for the money? Surely, if they had the power, they would spend one day and earn a million dollars.
"But i don't need the money, and i don't want to abuse my gift"
Answer: donate it to a charity of your choice then - you are using your gift to save lives then. But still nobody has been able to do it. Those we see on TV don't want to, because they know it will prove them to be a fake.
So here are a few U-tube links of him in action. I could sit and watch these all day.
