I think hypocrisy in magic, is necessary to keep that air of mysticism up. Without it, the so-called magic would disappear for good.

I've got a friend in the US who could most likely pass the Randi challenge, including the preliminary test, so long as the test and whatever else actually measures or demonstrates someone's real abilities, rather than just coming up with ludicrous tests no-one could pass or that is another supposed skill entirely. For instance, if I say I can read minds correctly 9.5 times out of ten if someone thinks of a number or a letter, I don't want Randi challenging me to levitate as the PT. Anyhow, I asked my friend if she would do it, and she doesn't need the money, and values her privacy, so wouldn't go ahead. I also wonder if/when Randi comes across earnest people with real abilities seeking the payout, he finds a way to squib on paying out on the challenge and instead feeds the people to some kind of present-day CIA MKUltra program (you know, the 'men who stare at goats'-type thing) against their will for some extra dosh. In other words, he's being used and using the $1M lure to ferret people out with genuine ability for referral to the spooks to spy on 'the enemies of the govt'. Funny he's never paid out on the challenge when there are definitely people out there with psi abilities.
