I wonder if Uri would sign the Randi book on him?

I'm pretty sure the Uri we met at the Genii Bash would not only sign it but sit down and break bread with Randi. I doubt if the feeling is mutual but that would be the lecture to end all lectures...a sit down/debate between them.

I'm giving away five items this time.

The first four people who call will win a VHS cassette (NOT a DVD) of Dingle's Deceptions, the Video, which I shot in the late 1990s.

The 7th person who calls will win a Yigal Mesika Spider Pen Pro, which sells for $150.

I will take calls starting NOW, 1pm EST, for exactly 7 minutes, stopping at 1:08.

301-652-8035.

Ian, "off by one?"

I turned out to be 12th lol.

Kept hitting redial, obviously while you were shooting the breeze with Richard.

Thanks Richard and Happy Holidays everyone.

I called and was thrilled that I got through to Richard.

He started taking my name down, and asked me what the first prize was. I'm thinking: "I can't believe it! I won something!"

I excitedly told him it was the Magic Ranch tapes, but then he said: "Wait a minute...you're the first caller...that's not good! Bye!"

Arghghghghghghghghgh!

Now I know how Charlie Brown feels when Lucy does her thing with the football.

(Of course, like Charlie Brown, I'll try again tomorrow! :grin:)

Although not currently recognized by the DSM-IV, a small but well publicized minority suffer as "never nudes". Our sympathies to you and your family.
