At the end of this video, Don Lane tells James Randi off!

Thanks for clearing that up for me ciscop. I didn't have the time to do any reading on Don Lane so I wasn't sure.

Don Lane, - (an American immigrant), - was, in his lifetime, a very popular television celebrity in Australia.

I am old enough to remember his clash with James Randi when it was first broadcast live and the impression it made at the time.

That moment was neither Lane, nor Randi's shining hour.

I do not personally think that Uri Geller has ever been anything other than a highly skilled, albeit, unethical magician.

I do not see James Randi as anything other than a rival magcian who has a rather big issue about the ethics of people like Geller regarding professional ethics.

Don Lane was a mate of Uri Geller, that is true.

And some journalists have even fessed up to having been enlisted as confederates in some of Geller's more baffling publicity stunts.

Right. Just for the record.-I am one of the paranormal believers around here, although not a blind one.

So fool me once......... Shame on you!

Fool me twice...........SHAME ON ME! :oops:

Now you buggers have got me right of track with all this talk about nude women.

So let's put it to a vote I say!

Do we really want to read all sorts of steenking crap about the paranormal? :?

Or do we want LOTS of feelthy peectures of beautiful nekkid ladies? :D

Randi didn't disguise his key bending very well otherwise Randi would have gained alot of support.

So the lesson to be learnt here is to do what one says,and Randi didn't do it .....Now as for me I keep saying that myTelekinesis will happen on such and such dates, which I really know they won't until I firstly do a certain task. Only when I am prepared to do it, will I make my magic ability come to reality.

Yet Done Lane was too harsh against Randi,which wasn't entertaining at all.
Randi was no researcher of the paranormal even though he tried half heartedly.... Shows over.
