Filipino "psychic judge" wants to undergo Challenge!

Filipino "psychic judge" Florentino Floro has (semi-officially) declared his willingness to undergo the Million Dollar Challenge.

h ttp://w ww.pinoyexchan ge.com/forums/showpost.php? p=18142486&postcount=10

He was last featured in James Randi's Swift last May.

How can we make this happen? I so, so want to see the "three dwarves" Armand, Luis, and Angel get the worldwide attention they deserve!!!

(just cut, paste, remove spaces to view url's. sorry about that, folks, but i need to work up to 15 posts minimum before I can post links!)

Having (eventually) read the link, I wish you good luck in getting a coherent application out of this fellow. And I don't just mean the language difference.

For a while, Floro was posting quite frequently in the Neil Gaiman boards last year. He set new records for breathtakingly high levels of inanity and incomprehensible meandering. He was banned a while back, but even his abbreviated output earned him the coveted "Lord of the Spam" award for 2006.

Man, the dude's been around!

Since Randi's changed the rules, though, I think the chances of any such encounter are getting slimmer.

Media, exposure, yep - but I'll be darned if any academic is going to vouch for the judge.
