He's like a credible Andy Rooney.
Camonk
Also like Andy Rooney, but his old-man words are actually connected into some kind of meaningful sentences. This is my kind of curmudgeonly old man, basically.

baleen
except boring and his shtick was old 20 years ago.

wow, you mean charlatans exist. we get it.
at least andy rooney was laughably concerned with the shape of seatbelts and why you had to press the start button in windows to shut it down.

HankFinch
shtick?

pastorofmuppets
If there weren't lots and lots of people who believe this garbage and have voting rights, you'd have a point. Until then, what he does will be useful work.

Things don't stop being true because you've heard them before. Facts aren't like ska bands, they don't just go out of style when you and your friends get bored.

pastorofmuppets
didn't mean you specifically, more like "you people" *wink*

pastorofmuppets
no i didn't. sorry, it's screw you sunday.

Wombles
He makes a point and is comparable to Rooney in entertainment value because Rooney is boring and whiny 85% of the time.

I wonder how poetry publishing guide will feel about this video.

poetry publishing guide
you people and your ska bands and your "facts"

pastorofmuppets
I was still drunk from Saturday. I feel bad about my behavior. I don't feel bad about what happened to ska.

Samisyosam
Damn breatharians! Get off my lawn!
MrBuddy
I've been a subscriber to the JREF newsletter for more years than I can remember but... well... this came across as just an angry rant.

Candlejackv616
I wish he was my grandpa.

5 invisi stars for the "also his beard is huge" tag.
revdrew
I'm more impressed by his eyebrows.

rroach
He looks like an Indian yogi.
Gamara II
Man I love this guy.
bopeton
I read some of his books when I was a teenager and it literally changed the way I look at the world. I love him forever.

John Holmes Motherfucker
Okay, who here knew that he used to work for Alice Cooper? Here he is as the evil dentist back in 1972 for the Legendary "Billion Dollar Babies" Tour.

He also played the executioner who ran the guillotine. Can Andy Rooney say that? I think not.

2 weeks in a hospital, basically unsupervised, and they bathed him. really. it doesnt even take a serious skeptic to question that. how about put him in a tube for 6 months (with a fresh air supply, of course!) and see what happens.

This guy is ten million times better than Dawkins.
pastorofmuppets
What Dawkins lacks in style he makes up for in being an actual scientist.

nemeses9
That makes Dawkins a bit intimidating to me though. I really feel like I could sit down and have a beer with this guy, know what I'm sayin'?

memedumpster
So long as you didn't bring up religion you'd get to talk to Starry Eyed Space Dawkins who finds wonder and joy in all things the universe.

pastorofmuppets
Nah, he's more of a Roman holiday kind of guy. But he didn't choke Wendy Wright to death, so I'd imagine he's got a good sense of humor.

Robin Kestrel
Rational thinking at work.

Countdown to "also his beard is huge" being a linked tag...3...2...
Hubba Bubba Nightmare
5 for Randi 'nough said
Meerkat
It does indeed boggle.
CrimsonHyperSloth
The way he said, "Really?" Has so much behind it and made me laugh.

I also worked with a man a lot like him, at a past job.
Potrod
So is this guy's target audience morons who normally believe these ridiculous claims or morons who like to pat themselves on the back for NOT believing these ridiculous claims?

I don't like his lip smacking.
Reipuman
he's going to give me a million dollars after he sees what I've done to you

cognitivedissonance
I love that my original line of thought complaint is starting to take gravity.

Soon I will be avenged.

ItsAboutTime
Although he can tend to get very self-congratulatory at times, his message that skepticism is a good weapon which can be actively used against foolishness is good.
I think it's a good movement that thinking for yourself and actually critically evaluating information can help us put our time and money to make this whole clusterfuck of a world move forward. He is just a preacher of common sense, not nearly as bad as Dawkins or some of these TED douchebags.

pastorofmuppets
He's preaching to the choir. Who isn't? The idea is that the choir will then go our and preach to the masses, instead of being jaded assholes.

boner
Randi's videos ARE watched by people who believe this junk & are searching YouTube for it.

Yes they have the million dollars:

splatterbabble
Does he even have a million dollars?

What a kooky old man.
oddeye
Not really, supposedly it's in bonds and the like but it's not like he is ever going to have to give it to any challengers.

Really he could offer 0M and it wouldn't make a difference.

memedumpster
The preload image would make a perfect James Randi poster.

"God, in MY beard!? NO WAY!"
