The "Carlos" Hoax
I forgot to include the great "Carlos" Hoax, with the rest of the James Randi video links.
The depth of work to build the character of Carlos, the 2,000 year old spirit being channeled, is amazing. The documentary about him and how Randi prepped the actor to go to Australia and con the entire country is great.
It is an important reminder. Just because you think you are too smart to get fooled, doesn't mean you won't be fooled. There just so many tricks to play, too many hands faster than your eyes, and plenty of people eager enough for fame and money.
