Will there be a special to follow? Hey Richard can we get a live feed for the three days at the convention? You can get publicity for this, as the news crews cut-a-way "to the crowds at an Orlando Magic Convention celebrating 75 years on Genii Magazine...gather to watch there idol..."

I think that since everyone at the hotel gets free wi-fi, plenty of people will be watching this on their laptops. But I will enquire.

So...if he lowers his arm...he gets zapped? What if he sneezes? Pier 54 is located at 13th street.

I'm not really sure what it's all about, but I gather the danger level is genuine.

ArcAttack used the Tesla coil as part of their appearance on America's Got Talent a while back.

C/Angel also used to open his Vegas show with the Tesla before the major changes kicked in.

Will be interesting to see what D/Blaine has in store ...

I remember the one Criss shows where he found some Tesla guy deep in the woods...and proceeded to fry his big toe. The ambulance came... Those smoked boots may still be on display at his Luxor Store...

Who would win if those two went head to head in an endurance stunt? DB

Still no sign of his poster around the city. I have a bunch of eyes looking for me. They will probably get hung over the weekend. If I scrape three or four off a wall, I will bring them to Orlando, will trade one for a big steak dinner.

I will check Fantasma on the 3rd to see if they got any in. Any requests? Richard will Genii have a booth? Do you want me to buy and bring a stack down for you to sell?
