    I cannot 'get there'. 

    I wish I could.

    But lately I have spent hours watching James Randi.

    I just love this guy.

    He is a magician (even tho he hates that moniker) but he is also a debunker.

    Here is one of his shows:

    Nobody, except for me has the time to view an hour of this old guy.

    Randi took down this Popoff prick who is now selling ounces of holy water on late nite tv.

    As well as Uri Geller of course. hahahah

    On the other hand I attempt to see Penn & Teller once a week when the pair are in season.

    There is always this song that never leaves me.
