The Randi Million Dollar Challenge - claimed!


#1

If you’ve never heard of this, James Randi, an ex magician and now proffessional de-bunker of fake scientists, put up a challenge several years ago that he would give $1000,000 to anyone who could prove that they had any kind of psychic ability. I was blown away to find out that someone had claimed the prize. Absolutely gobsmacked that this didn’t reach the mainstream news or the papers!

We also use it in Canada (the french parts).

Not only do we say “April Fish” when playing a prank, my kids always cut up paper fish and try and stick them on other people’s backs on April Fool’s day. I don’t know where the tradition comes from, but they have a lot of fun with it. Maybe next year, they’ll laser cut the fish instead of using scissors :slight_smile:
