well I for one don't feel that taking one million in bonds is worth the effort. plus fame and fortune is not all that cracked up to be. but helping otheres is a good thing.

money has a way of changing people anyway. I seen good people turn greedy and not give any money to help otheres.

randi is a flake and bonds are a goverment IOU meaning that you may or may not get a thing for them.
there are othere ways to help people besides giving them money, cause you do it once they'll be wanting more money.

money isn't everything.......

Well, maybe you don't need the money, but imagine starving children in Africa. Will you keep all your psi-powers to yourselves, won't you help the world anyhow? You could start by putting videos of you using your powers on youtube. It will probably attract other media and eventually you will gain popularity and acceptance. You could use your powers to help the world, maybe help science! You could heal sick and stuff like that! Why aren't you going to bars and betting people that you can perform psi-stuff? You would surely win and become rich. The possibilities are endless!
uh huh...And we have seen and read The X-men way too many times, and I LOVE the X-men.

Seriously Athlete, nice question but with all due respect do you think no one thinks about that? Or isn't already helping as much as they can within the scope of their own capabilities?

The helping I mean. The youtube mess and bonds things is simply drama and scorn not needed in my opinion. It isn't that easy for people to believe and if for arguments sake we could say such so-called levels of power could be filmed, documented, accepted and proven. Will the world just let us "willy-nilly" swoop into town and save the day?

Most of the people here probably would win, assuming that the rules were fair and not ridiculously stupid like Randi makes them..... That's also assuming Randi even accepts your challenge, which he probably won't if you have a decent chance at winning.

It doesn't take a telepath to figure out what your trying to get at, the reason why we don't is because, we don't have to prove ourselves. Especially to the likes of Randi, or better yet, you.

I can levitate, shoot fireballs and blow up stuff with my mind power, but I don't have to prove anything to anyone, even if I would become the king of the universe after doing so. But I don't want to be the king, get all the chicks and spend my money travelling around the world. I want to continue living in my mother's basement, hoping that one day my chi ball will really become visible and maybe that will help me lose my virginity and maybe get a better job than grocery packer or that one day maybe I will be able to summon all the fat and acne away, until then I will continue watching Naruto, wanking to Disney porn and collecting Magic:The Gathering cards, in mean time, remaining my Lone-Wolf attitude, I do have Asperger's after all.

I want to the live the fantasy, I want to believe that in next life I may wind up not living such a pitiful life as now. LIVE THE DREAM!

ummm ok lol are you talking about your self or the people in this thread?
but if your talking about your self then I am truely sorry you are in your familys basement but what you must understand its not about money or fame its about truth and understanding. its the light in the darkness which lights are way to who we are....
randi has a motive and thats to show or prove that there is no paranormal activity in this world he believes in the evolution theory.
so whats the point of wasting are time trying prove to him that these things do happen when all he is going to do is lie anyways.
but don't be mad or hateful.
as for living the dream crap what dream are you talking about anyways your dreams or your average impression on humans.
anyway I must say I know I don't live with or around my parents in fact I have my own house and I pay for it so with that said.
have a great day lol

Athlete, why would the lot of us hang around here doing nothing but talking to EACH OTHER about psionics, gaining us absolutely nothing (much less acclaim among our peers) if none of it were real?

Moving this to the proper area of the forum. Every once in a while it's fun to have these sorts of conversations, but you'd best follow the forum rules if you want to stick around.

There, that's better.
Now, someone has already solved Randi's challenge, using absolutely nothing more than their brilliant mind, simply because Randi wasn't smart enough about how he set it up, and left too many clues. So you never had to be psychic to win it in the first place. If that person had intended to rip Randi off, he could have done so easily.

Randi isn't trustworthy, and as has been pointed out, it takes more than being a decent psion to win his challenge. I know I'm not inclined to bother.

Why in the world would you think we would WANT to prove psionics to the world? What would be in that for us? Before you answer on all of the positive possibilities, consider the negatives. Just how do you think people would react to knowing that their neighbor may be able to read their thoughts...or, more alarmingly, that a select few people in the world can kill them from anywhere on the globe without leaving a trace detectable by any current scientific means?
I am thinking the answer to that is 'not well'.
We, our families, and our children, are better off and safer if the public thinks it may all be fake. Let them. No, really, sincerely--LET THEM. lol

What exactly do you expect us to do about the starving children in Africa? That's going to require politics to solve, not psionics. What's more, what makes that OUR responsibility? If I could win the lotto, I would, but my abilities don't lie in that area. If I did, I would keep the money, sorry!
At least one past lotto winner dreamed the numbers the night before they bought the ticket. So it is possible.
But there are a lot of people trying to view and INFLUENCE the lotto outcome, so it's such a mess it's back to random again.

Now, what is shaping up to be interesting is "America's Psychic Challenge" on Lifetime. It looks like great fun for the contestants, and they're really doing quite well!
My abilities don't lend themselves to those types of activities, alas.

If you think you would become the king of the world by proving you could shoot fireballs with your mind, you sincerely underestimate the viciousness of the human mob when confronted with something they fear.
Of course, there is telepathic suggestion, which could be used to turn world leaders into puppets.
But what makes you think that's not already happening? :)

Because you cannot cope with reality and love to live in a delusional world?

Read my thoughts, use your psy powers to tell the town I am from. It isn't that hard, is it? Oh, wait, wait, I forgot - you don't have to prove me anything.

You could feed them with your energy chi-balls or something.
