I bent many spoons in front of friends after college, which scared the hell out of them. Until I showed them the illusion that I was using (based on reading James' writings).

He will really be missed, his exposure of so many frauds was amazing.

A very cool guy working hard on the side of truth; a life well lived. May he rest in peace.
A video I very well remember:

Homeopathy, quackery and fraud | James Randi (TED Talk)
