Authors@Google: James Randi

I just decided to read up on him, after seeing him in PZ's Skepticon 3 video. He's hilarous!

One of those moments is in this video, along with a right entertaining lecture of sorts

One of my fave jokes in a long time...

"We heard of a guy in Florida, the poor man, he died of an overdose of homeopathic medicine. He forgot to take his pill."

Many years ago, Scientific American published an article about psychiatry, The bit that sticks in my mind says that every school of psychiatry has one, and only one, success - and that is in proving that all the others are wrong.
The existence of just one racist is proof that there exists at least one person who could be reasonably classified as sub-human.
