Hi all,
I don't know if this has already been posted or not (if it has, then I apologize), but here is an interesting article on Daily Grail with a lot of responses called "The Myth of the Randi Challenge". Check it out:

Most of that is very old news, the first link is something that was first announced at least two years ago if I'm recalling things correctly. The ABC thing with Banachek. . . well, Steve did screw with scientist for a number of years (with Gerry McCambridge) doing the spoon & key bending, etc. at Randi's encouragement and got some big kudos in the skeptics world for doing so.

:idea: I've never thought to ask him if they got paid for their time during that project and if so, did they give the money back given that they deliberately hustled the researchers and doing such things and taking the cash is morally & ethically wrong. . . at least when it applies to most psychics that would be the case. :roll:

I'm always looking for material and solid arguments on Randi and his church however. In my mind if the soul of those that "lead" the pack is tainted then the whole thing is questionable at best.

Do You Know How To Use Window Coverings,air max pas cher
Window coverings serve an important role in your home,air max pas cher, giving you privacy and also protecting your furniture and décor from the harshness of prolonged,air max pas cher, direct sunlight. But the range of choices is so wide,air max pas cher, including blinds,air max pas cher, shades,air max pas cher, shutters and curtains,air max pas cher, that some homeowners have a hard time deciding which they prefer,air max pas cher, or whether they can mix their window coverings according to the room where they are installed.
There are no hard and fast rules about what you should use,air max pas cher, versus what you could use. The decision is up to your tastes,air max pas cher, preferences,air max pas cher, and what works with your decorating scheme. What you decide is great for one room,air max pas cher, may not fit in another, so you switch from blinds in the bathroom to window shades in the bedroom,air max pas cher, and that is just fine, as long as you are happy with the way the décor looks when you're done.
For example,air max pas cher, the living room is where most people entertain visitors and family,air max pas cher, and because it is often a "public" room,air max pas cher, people tend to go for more distinguished or striking window coverings,air max pas cher, that may include shutters or curtains,air max pas cher, and occasionally a combination of both.
A beautiful set of lined drapes,air max pas cher, with sheers underneath,air max pas cher, and topped by a decorative swag,air max pas cher, are not only functional,air max pas cher, but very decorative and can be coordinated with the furniture,air max pas cher, or serve as an accent to the overall scheme of a room.
