James Randi offered a $1 million prize toMar 15 2007

James Randi offered a $1 million prize to any psychic who could remotely determine the contents of a box in his office. Cryptographer Matt Blaze and Jutta Degener correctly identified the object from a string of numbers that Randi published to assure contestants that he wouldn't switch the object after a correct guess. The numbers referred to an entry in the 1995 edition of the Random House Webster's College Dictionary that described the object. (via wired)
