Hi all!

In a couple weeks, I'll be off to the US (Florida, specifically) for a business trip and I've worked a trip to Fort Lauderdale into the itinerary. The JREF (James Randi Educational Foundation) is based in Fort Lauderdale and I've emailed the big guy himself to arrange a meeting and he affably agreed! I thought it'd be interesting to solicit messages or questions from you guys to present to him later this month.

Let's try come up with original questions or at least some interesting ones... such as:
Does Sylvia Brown smell and bad as she looks?Did Peter Popoff pop one off?Did Uri Geller bend over backwards to convince you of his "skills"? (sounds of crickets chirping)Can you show me a magic trick with an eye of newt?
Jokes aside, it'll be amazing to meet The Amazing Randi and I'm looking forward to sending him good tidings from the South African Skeptics community!

Enjoy - he's good company, and will happily do some ear-bending!

Ask him: "What is the closest anybody came to winning your wager?"

I think it somebody that could look at the grooves on a LP record and tell what music it was. Even this guy knew it was not supernatural. I think he could only do it with classical music but still! To sit there for hours (probably with a magnifying class) and memorise the wriggles?

Good one! That's going on the list :)
