Re: Book that this trick is in

The "version" in the Kenner book is Michael Weber's. If you read the introduction to the trick you will get the gist of what went on. Michael performed this, but did not explain it, at an 8 hour lecture he gave in Niagara on the Lake in the early 80's. It was not in print at that time but ...

Re: "I Hate Card Tricks" by Magicbob

For all practical purposes the file is unavailable to you after you get rid of the moved copy. You would need to go to extraordinary means to retrieve a cop...

Re: Have you met any great characters in magic???

3 characters in magic I was lucky enough to meet and spend some time with were Mike O'Dowd (the one from Toronto) - He always had some topological thing to show and he had this vent figure he had made where the face had a skin over it and the mouth moved like an actual human mouth Willis Kenney - Al...

Re: Johnsson Too Perfect Theory Genii

The "Too Perfect" theory is incorrectly named and that is the reason for the big debate. If a trick were truly perfect all explainations, including the correct one, would be impossible in the audiences mind. Rick Johnsson's theory should be called the "Not Quite Perfect" theory.
