Million Dollar Prize to Prove Your Paranormal Abilities

Q: The James Randi Educational Foundation Million Dollar Challenge will be discontinued 24 months from this coming March 6th. In this challenge, Randi promises a prize of one million dollars to anyone proving his or her paranormal abilities. This means that all those wishing to be claimants are required to get their applications in before the deadline, properly filled out and notarized as described in the published rules. Do you think anyone will collect the money?

A: How would I know? I’d have to be psychic or something, wouldn’t I?


Q: As the nation studies the polls in New Hampshire, it is a good time to pause and recall the “Giant Monkey” of Danville, New Hampshire. A few years ago, in rural Danville, search parties were engaged in looking for a giant monkey. During a period of two weeks, at least ten cryptid Giant Monkey sightings were reported to local authorities. Danville Fire Chief, David Kimball, was among the first to see the cryptid running across Kingston Road. Others, like Pleasant Street resident Vivian Wicker, 58, said she heard the monkey hollering outside her home, describing the noise as a hooting or a strange howling sound. Have you heard about it?

A: Sure. Some are saying it explains Senator Clinton’s comeback.


Q: There is a certain Parade Mardi Gras Den (a large warehouse in Uptown New Orleans). This “Most Haunted” place at one time was a local police station and jail where several people died. Gina Lanier, ghost hunter, has ventured into the haunted location more than once and states that this is Mardi Gras’ most haunted hotspot. Many have spoken of the sights, sounds and the paranormal occurrences that happen there each year. Oddly, no hauntings were reported last year. Could it be the ghosts have left?

A: It’s possible. They may have relocated to Houston after Katrina.


Q: The city of Springfield, Illinois (like many others) has a starling problem. Millions of these birds haunt the historic downtown area, leaving behind sidewalks on which few want to walk. The solution…James “the Bird Whisperer” Soules was hired for $164,000 to drive the birds away. Apparently, Soules, at age two, had been carried away by an eagle. He claims not to poison, kill or hurt the birds in any way. How will he get rid of them?

A: Remember the Pied Piper? Maybe Soules is the Tinted Timpanist.
