Sometimes it takes a second look to get things just right. Mr. Flare forces Captain Disillusion take that second look. ---NOTES--- Thank you to the many viewers who were *skeptical* about the original debunk. Your vigilance caused me to dig deeper and figure out this more solid explanation. I want to make sure that everyone understands: the original episode's explanation is not "by" James Randi. It's only a movie. Mr. Randi and the rest of the staff at JREF very generously participated and performed to a script I had written. So the responsibility for the original "inaccuracies" rests with me. Enjoy!
