Re: Most Issues of MAGIC Magazine are Now Live in the Genii Archive

I'm glad this is receiving active focus and is getting closer.

Earlier today I could see the MAGIC cover thumbnails, but the only one I tried to open failed to load. It also froze my browser tab. That was using the Chrome browser on Windows 7.

Currently I don't see the MAGIC issues at all.

Why are you afraid of theatrical lying? It has a frame around it. It's bounded by the frame of performance, acknowledged by the audience. The "psychics" who lie without that frame of performance are disapproved of. Do you see no difference? If not, why? If a child says, "Tell me a sto...

It sounds like the cashier's focus was diverted when Williamson offered a bet that would allow him to escape paying for part of his bill.

From that point on, her focus may well have been entirely on her register not coming up short of its expected cash total, which depended on her not being tricked.
