By my aesthetic... if you are going to provide a context for the boxes, i.e. shipping and gift box, then the strongest presentation is one that provides a context to put the shipping box into the gift box.

There are a couple of basic ideas for tricks involving dyslexia that jump out at me: (1) One being a prediction is made of a word, and when it is shown, the letters are all mixed up. Magician explains he has dyslexia, and that's how he sees the word, but to help them out he'll show them the process ...

Actually though it theoretically can happen, there has never been a time the Grand Prix has not been awarded. Except for the first year--1946-- when evidently there was not grand prix as there was no catergories; just 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Now there is no longer just a Grand Prix--there's a Grand Prix ...

It's not so much a talk show from a guy's living room as it is a reality show about a guy doing a talk show from his living room. From what I've seen, they actually show very little of the actual talk show--one or two jokes from his monologue, and just a minute or two of the interview with the "...

To me SPAM is indiscriminate mass emailing. I like to be able to refer to SPAM and have their be a diffe...
