I like to fool people and make them feel intellectually inferior because they can't figure it out. Also, I have used my skills to convince a small mining town into thinking I was the devil, and I made them pay me in gold coin to keep me from reeking havoc on their humble village with my "powers". Another great thing that can come from performing magic is that you can occaisonally convince an insecure, lonely Waffle House waitress to sleep with you after you convince her you "understand her soul" by doing a few mentalism effects. I'm looking forward to expanding my ability and keeping with the venerable ways, such as using my card skills to cheat people at poker and blackjack. I mean, there are soooo many cool things about performing magic I could go on all night!!!
