He could get out of those chains, but he couldn't figure out the door locks on my car. So endearing! I wish the world could have 84 MORE years of James Randi! In the meantime, we'll just enjoy him for however long he's here. Happy birthday, Oh Amazing One!

Happy Birthday, James - from the guy you "stole" the phone from during our luncheon meeting a few years back in Silver Springs, MD. May you have many more!

Dear James, good to see you're still going strong!

Back in 1996, a 22-year-old me interviewed you in Vancouver when you were in town shooting "Scams, Schemes and Scoundrels". It was one of the most exciting days of my life, as you were probably my favourite living human at the time. (And you're still solidly in the top 10 today!) smilies/wink.gif

Your wit, wisdom and showmanship inspired me to dedicate much of my life to thwarting religion, superstition and pseudoscience (and hopefully having fun doing it). And so, in 2010 I founded the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project--Canada's feistiest pro-foreskin advocacy group--to advocate for the human right of all children to grow up with intact sex organs. As your pals Penn & Teller correctly state, "Circumcision is Bullshit", and I would like to encourage you and the JREF to speak out against the genital mutilation of children--one of humanity's most ancient forms of sexual discrimination and sexual abuse.

Happy birthday James! Your work has had a profound effect on my life, and I look forward to being further inspired by you and the JREF for years to come.

Sincerely,
Glen Callender
Founder, Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project (CAN-FAP)

Dear sir,

First of all, I must say that I'm very skeptical about your age (I'm joking).

Beacuse my mother tongue is Spanish, I'm going to say this:

¡Muchas felicidades, señor Randi! ¡Es usted un baluarte del racionalismo! ¡Tiene usted miles de admiradores en México! ¡Gracias!

One last thing: my grandmother is 105 years old and she is one of the most inquisitive and clever persons I've ever known, so you still have a long, long way to run, sir smilies/wink.gif

Thanks for these 84 years!

Your enthusiastic Bright fellow,

Andrés González Cantú

Ever since I saw you on the Carson show I've been a huge fan. Sorry I missed TAM this year (I've been to 7 others so far). I hope you are having a great birthday. They tell me that 84 is the new 79. smilies/cheesy.gif
