Re: Penn & Teller: Fool Us - Season 2

Funny... People criticize decision that Joshua Jay fooled Penn&Teller here when their own guesses are as far of as Penn&Teller's was :lol: There was no deck switch nor there was switch of a card or ringing in extra card from index. The routine is published in Joshua Jay's unreal set and it i...

Re: Vegas Magic Shows

Its been almost 2 years since my last Vegas visit but I guess most hasnt changed since then. When I was there I have to say that Copperfield wasnt doing too well.
