Oh, I loved this part: "Randi did something very unfair [last year]," Natalia said. "I hope we can get him to agree on fair rules, then hopefully the competition will go to us this time."

Yes, terribly unfair. He eliminated her being able to peek down her nose, thereby precluding her from scamming a million bucks.

I'm going to double my pledge.

Details of Natilias test can be found here for those interested.

Asking her to not peek down her nose or be tipped off in another language seems eminently reasonable to me.

My favorite story of this type was a guy who worked small Christian churches. He blindfold one eye and took the other out of its socket (it was prosthetic) and used it to "read" the Bible.

If memory serves, his name was Robert Coyne and he did the bit for years.
