Re: So how deceptive is the balloon swallow, really?

I second Alan's suggestion. (The two DVD set by Fielding is one of my favorite magic DVD sets.)

Re: Buy The Sphinx for only $50!

I see a difference in price between the Conjuring Arts' offering and yours, but that doesn't address my question. Are you suggesting that, if I order this from them (and I am about to) I will be charged a different price than their website lists?

He discusses this in the comments of the video.

Safari on iPad 3, Firefox on Windows. I suspect it works for you because you're in the Administrators group, I am in the Registered Users group. (On the boards I run, I set up a separate login that mirrors regular user accounts so I can see what a regular user sees permission wise. Just a suggestion.)

Re: Dolts in the Media and Royal Road to Card Magic

To be fair, what he said was "poor illustrations and overly complex descriptions" and, "slights" is now "sleights."

Perhaps he can next be persuaded to obtain "The Royal Road to Card Magic" DVD set by R. Paul Wilson.

I invited him into the tent.
