You know what really eats me up? People who claim they can talk to the dead, when it is far, far more likely they are simply using psychological tricks (like cold reading) and random guesses, making it seem like they have some supernatural power.
A while back, the James Randi Educational Foundation publicly challenged so-called "psychic" James van Praagh to take their Million Dollar Challenge and prove he can do what he claims. It's been weeks, and he hasn't replied. I can't imagine why, can you? It's almost as if he's afraid of being tested in a controlled environment.
The JREF decided to follow up on their challenge to van Praagh, to see if they could make sure he got the message. And this time, they brought some friends...
Man, I would've given an arm and a leg to be there for that. But c'mon, do you really think van Praagh will ever respond?
