He was an entertainer of the first order! As well as stimulating a bit of mental activity and (mostly) friendly competition. Over the last few years, he might be the most watched TV personality in our household, along with Alton Brown and Rachel Maddow. RIP!

We missed the passing of James Randi. He was a character, and a force for good. RIP.

Yes, surprised I missed it. I was thinking of him earlier (NNT was looking like him at today’s QI conference!)

Look at videos of Banachek describing his time working with JR to fool the ESP lab at Washington University!
