The Afterlife Gamble

So James Randi has decided to only allow "media psychics" (read: complete frauds) to compete in his million dollar paranormal challenge. What's an enterprising paranormal researcher to do? Why, set up your own paranormal challenge with the local bookie! A British paranormal investigator has bet 100 pounds at odds of 10,000 to 1 against that he will be able to prove the existence of an afterlife within the next year.

This is a much better deal than Randi's actual challenge. Randi's rules pretty much guaranteed that anyone trying to win the challenge would have to spend several hundred dollars on expenses, if not more, and with the current value of the British pound the payoff is almost double.

Now let's see if he can actually do it.
