    It looks really sick but I dunno if if looks that good if it`s happening right in front of you, like if say I wanted to show my friends.
    The guy in the video is better looking than Criss Angel.

    You can`t reveal Shiit like this. People Build their careers off this type of material, it ruins their jobs as entertainners. Not all magiciens are broadway, vegas, whatever, a lot of them are in Restaurants, Shows in clubs etc, and blantely exposing tricks ruins their job.

    This link should be removed.

    KoalaMeatPie: How is someone going to see dental floss from a table 50 feet away in a resteraunt?
    Although I do understand your point.. this is more on the level of a party trick.. I mean, it involved glue and floss...
    This is like the Smoking Fingers trick... it`s a neat little "awesome!" thing, not anything someone will be performing on a stage.

    Lost_In_Time & Hellven: He was just trying to make a moral point, it`s not like he actually yelled and threw things when he saw the video

    thisidrocks: I hereby am questioning your sexual preferences.

    Really cool video. I`ve gotta try this sometime.

    The trick was stupid. And no magician should be making money off an easy trick like that. I figured it out before the how to. Now placing a bottle halfway through a table, that`s a good trick.

    Want a Dustbuster, KoalaMeatPie?
    Industrial strength one, maybe?

    For what, you ask? For getting that Sand out of your Vag*na.
    It seems to be lodged up there fairly well.

    Besides, does some half-assed fake magician really need three summer houses in Malibu with a new Porshe every year?

    Nope. He doesn`t.


    Oh, I get it. Someone was an aspiring magician.
    `Was` being the key word.

    "everybody who is really into magic is really lame. seriously. even pro magicians are failures at life."

    Thats not true. I knew this kid in highschool who was a bonified GENIUS. Graduated at 16, and he already finished ALL COLLEGE LEVEL math courses at the local college. He was being recruited by major financial companies as well as government agencys.

    He could do the most amazing magic tricks I`ve ever seen, no joke. Now get this. He did more hard drugs than anyone I`ve ever known. But the crazy thing is, he would research the drugs and learn the best way to take them to minimize harm. Yeah, it sounds crazy, but again, he was amazingly intelligent. And he did professional magic shows on the side, just for fun.

    Magician`s code? Are you serious?

    Is there a convention of wanna-be-magicians on here?

    Did you people poop on the television set when that series on Fox (Was it Fox? It was a major company)was on? Revealed all the magicians secrets?

    People that are b*tching fail to see the upside to this, as you`re retarded. Allow me to enlighten you.

    It is simple. If the tricks have been figured out, shown and are common knowledge then there are two things that will happen.

    Lame-ass magicians such as `Criss` Angel will be forced to use even -more- cut scenes in their `magic` acts

    -or-

    They`ll be forced to come up with even more `amazing` (aherm) tricks to baffle all you...people out there.

    So. There you go.

    Stop bitching and rejoice, wanna-be-magicians, now you have something to do. Figure out something that some 16 year old can`t put on IAB.

    Happy trails.

    Imeagla, you have no honor or ethics. You are a shallow, souless person. This notion goes back a long time. You are probably content with plagarism and copyright infringment too. Depending on the trick, it is a violation of intellectual property rights.

    Some tricks are public knowledge, like this one is now. BUT IT IS NO DIFFERNET THAN STEALING AN INDUSTRY SECRET AND EXPOSING IT TO THE WORLD, to the detriment of the owner.

    People who do this are just like movie critics; if you suck too badly to make movies, why not tear down the work of others?

    I may be Shallow and I may be souless but I am not...Wait...What was that last one?

    Well, if that`s your Stand GoalieJerry then I do hope you`ve never downloaded a song, or watched a television show illegally on the internet.

    Or took advantage of anyone else`s work. Ever.

    Of course you have, why? Because we`re all soul-less shells of things.

    Or, that people should just calm the f*ck down about life.

    Seriously, so many people b*tch about so many things, I shouldn`t be surprised at this.

    Tell me, GoalieJerry...Are you an aspiring magician or just someone who likes to B*tch?

    This is NOT stealing an industry secret as there cannot be a copyright on a `magic` trick. As there is no MAGIC. This is an illusion, and as such belongs to human beings. Being that we all have a neck and access to some thread and some glue.

    You apparently have sand in your Vag(na as well, hopefully you can use the dustbuster when KoalaMeatPie is done with it.

    Ta-ta.

    When you say that you don`t think a magic trick can be intellectual property, I know that its pointless to continue the conversation.

    No, it can`t be copyrighted or trademarked, and I did not say it could be. But it can be a trade secret subject to confidentiality. It may also be protected as is choreography. Read up, consult your lawyer.

    No, I am not an aspiring magician. I`d be lying if I said I didn`t, at times, enjoy bitching at idiots, but moreover I have ethics.

    More simply, those who expose magic tricks are fricken party poopers. Why ruin the observers fun forever by removing the wonderment? Of course its a trick, its fun because we don`t know how it was done. Once we know, good bye entertainment.

    You fail to see the upside once again, allow me to reiterate.

    By exposing the simple tricks (And once again, this involved GLUE a small piece of STRING and a friggin` flap of your neck.) then the "Illusion Artists" (is that what they`re calling themselves these days?) will be forced to retire and cease boring us or actually think of something creative.

    I mean, Criss Angel is nothing more than a high-class emo who dated Paris Hilton. (didn`t he? I may be mistaken on that. Don`t feel like looking it up.(and not the emo part, the Paris Hilton part))

    Isn`t that reason alone to take him down?


    If -any- of you ever get within striking distance of that horse-faced hussy and don`t take advantage of it, then you`re as stupid as him.

    Not to mention, you never answered my question, Jerry of the Goalie variety.

    Have you ever downloaded a song or watched a show online..?

    Referring to the arguement above me, one of you said that once the "magic" behind the trick is revealed, the entertainment is gone. I disagree with that really. Its my opinion really, but i feel rather frustrated if i dunno how to do it and i like it a whole lot more once i see how it was done.

    My brother once broke the Magicians Code because he showed me how to fo that "Broken Thumb" trick.

    You can go to the bookstore and buy a book that will tell you how to do this, and many other silly little tricks. Magicians do not make money off of things like this. That`s why Criss Angel will give these type of tricks away on his show. Google free magic tricks and see what you get.

    I`m a small-time, wanna-be magician, and I come from a long line of the same. Sometimes it`s just as fun to give away a small little trick like that as it is to WOW people with it.

    Enough about the "magicians code". People aren`t going to suddenly realize magic isn`t real because of this posting. Everyone knows it`s staged and has a rational explanation. Unless Chris Angel (or whatever illusionist came up with this trick) has nothing else up his sleeve (nice pun:), they aren`t going to lose their audience. There will always be a new trick to mesmerize the crowds. The sawing neck trick became old and used up long before this guy revealed the truth about it anyway.

    But on a different note... did anyone notice how much that guy seemed to enjoy the sawing of his own neck? His picture belonged with the diving "o" faces.

    Imeagla, You are a god among men. The way you lay a smack-down is... is an art

    Magic tricks suck. Freakin Carnies and Gypsies, the lot of them. goaliejerry, Does your life really suck that much that your only source of entertainment is the supernatural (which... SHOCK... doesn`t exist)? The world is a better place without people (like carnies and magicians) who prey on other`s naivety and need for other-worldly fulfillment. Evolution is true and ghosts and spirits and magic don`t exist. Nor, I am sorry to have to be the one to tell you this, does Santa exist.

    By the way, I steal the poo out of music, and I care nothing about the laws that I break. This is because they are unjust, and I fundamentaly disagree with them. People who really love to do something, like musicians, should be doing it for their love of it, not to become insanely rich fake "plastic" people.

    Take your moral piety and shove it up your arse, loser.

    I don`t give a poo how he does it, for one reason and one reason only: he`s hot (I dunno what other adjective to use here, damn). I don`t particularly care to analyze his show because watching him is just fine for me.

    I am angered because a) dammit now I know how it`s done and b) I don`t have a glue stick to try this myself. The world is unjust.

    God you guys are idiots. "Magic isn`t constructive." If there is any one thing less constructive than magic then it is posting on forums. I admit that, and tbh I don`t know why I bother because most of the time people don`t read my posts. Maybe you will today.

    I love magic. And what`s more, I love seeing how it`s done. It makes me appreciate how people can entertain audiences with things that are, after all, so simple. If you don`t have the ability to be mesmerised by something, that makes you feel like a kid again, then I pity you. You call us naive fools for liking magic, I call you depressive, die hard realists who don`t know how to let go and have real, honest fun.

    Die hard realism ruins thought. It ruins philosophy, and so many important aspects of human intelligence. The paranormal and whatnot is all part of our imagination, and if you deny people to let their minds wander and imagine and just believe what they want, then you are sad arseholes indeed.

    I`m going to make this short and sweet. (Just to prove it doesn`t have to be a page to get `em good, so to speak.)

    The world is flat, animals spontaneously erupt from inanimate objects, and A fat man in a red suit wanders the world annually dropping presents to all the good little girls and boys.

    This is what Die Hard Realism ruins, friend.


    The End.

    So by your theory, if I learn to drive, a professional race car driver career is ruined, If I draw something, an pro artist has no chance, If I am taught to write, then that ruins a best selling authors chances.

    emzrok... my take on the steamroller trick... the ground below the blanket covered with glass was altered. that springy mattress stuff, maybe. when he gets run over, it compresses the "ground" that`s the shape of his body. he`s still in pain because of the glass, but he was safely inside the ground. when it backs off, it regains shape, making it appear he was on top the ground the whole time. notice how the blanket is bunched up when the steamroller backs off. the blankets behind the roller prevents the camera from showing that the feet are actually coming up from the gound.

    just my thought...

    I was most disturbed by the girl stroking the bald guy`s head during the group interview. "Stop the petting already! Stop the petting!" She wasn`t in costume, but she felt comfortable with PDA. Seemed like a contradiction.

    And I wonder what the neighbors of the guy in the lion suit think about him creeping around in the night behind their house... listening, smelling.

    Imeagla, I assume from your posts then that the only TV shows and films you download like it`s your job are documentaries and the like then. No fiction? Your bookshelf full of biographies?

    Magic is just like those things. You know it`s not real but it`s entertaining. Enjoying a magic trick doesn`t make you any more pathetic than enjoying Scrubs (or a TV show you like, that was the first one I thought of).

    Also die-hard realism didn`t end belief that the world was flat, new scientific discoveries did. If it turns out in 10 years that there is other intelligent life in the universe would you call the UFO conspiracy nuts of today die-hard realists? I doubt it.

    Imeagla, the thing is, we all know that Santa doesn`t exist. But we say he does because it`s a classic childrens` belief and because it`s fun. You do know how to have fun, don`t you?

    The thing is that I don`t mind people believing in magic etc. As long as they don`t enforce their beliefs on others. What I do like is seeing how these people seem to defy all laws of physics. It`s entertainment, and I like it. Sure, Imeagla, you have your fan club of logic infested party-poopers, and you have fun with that. You`re probably one of those people who would only ever went to the star wars films to talk loudly through the whole thing about how lightsabers are physically impossible.

    So now what? You gonna "get me good" this time? With your ineffible logic? Can I not see past my nose? No, you are the blind, close-minded one because you won`t accept the opinions and viewpoints of others.

    That, my friend, is how to "get `em good".

    1. revealing tricks on the internet is nothing bad. If anyone wants to know this trick or any trick, you can BUY THE BOOK. there are tricks which are not in books, yes, and these tricks are SPECULATED on, and if someone FIGURES THEM OUT, they can speculate on their thoughts, and put it ANYWHERE THEY WANT ITS CALLED COMMENTARY IT IS LEGAL.

    So all the whiney magicians, and they ARE whiney, please shut up, i have heard this arguyement over and over, that its wrogn to reveal, gvuess what, its wrong to keep using the tired odl tricks for ages, its wrong to stop technology as many professionals want to do by limiting the ability to post reveals on youtube etc.

    It isnt the trick that sells anyways, its the personality,. thats why criss angel can make buttloads of money off other peopels parlor tricks, thats why thousands of peoeplw atch his show even when thousands know the crap he is pulling, the same with david blaine with his store bought tricks like the quater.

    Ahh, where to begin, where to begin.

    Let us address almightybob, first.

    You see, friend, you missed my point.

    Did I ever once say that I do not enjoy `magic` tricks? Absolutely not. I was pissed at the fact that people were complaining about the `magicians` code` And saying that people were going to be out of work.

    I clearly said this will make magicians work harder for their audience, or retire.

    Do I enjoy sitcoms and the such? Of course.
    Although, most of what I watch happens to be cartoons. About as fabricated as it comes.

    As far as die hard realism goes. Yes, I love logic. I love when things just work out, the plans are all laid down and make a beautiful pattern. How-ever, I would love nothing more than for something to happen that has absolutely no explaination. Something that baffeled the world over.
    I mean, seriously. If you honestly believe what Copperfield, Angel and whom-ever else does, than you probably reside in Retard-Town, USA.

    But, to say Die-Hard realism ruins thought and philosphy is absurd.
    Imagination is a beautiful thing. Something beyond words. But, to accept these things as truth is suicide to your race.

    Now, onto Andyl.
    *clap, clap, clap* Very good. And from someone who`s just so young.

    Your grammar, spelling and wording was impressive, friend.

    How-ever, I`m assuming that you`ve read nothing but my last post. I`ll let you go ahead and read back to the first few pages and then let you see what you think.

    But, you see, friend. You said

    First off let me say this: I am a Star Wars Geek, (albeit a closet one) and in my younger years probably spent more time fantasizing about having a Light Saber of my own more than your average Jedi. Oh, and...I absolutely LOATHE people whom find it fun to speak during movies in any manner, short of "Pardon me, I have to use the Restroom."

    And, with that aside, I offer you this question: Are you much different than I? Do you think I`d drive past some younger children and break the bad news about Santa? That`s absolutely disgusting. Hell, I`d f*cking play Santa if it made a few kids day. But, that`s children. They`re at the age where anything is possible, monsters exist and someday, -they- will be the Jedi knight, wielding the lightsaber...
    But, unfortunately, we`re adults. And with that entails the ability to decipher real from make believe.

    There is magic out there, there really is.
    Creation is magic, I`m fairly certain. The act of two beings creating another being is probably as close to magic as we`ll ever get.

    But, I`m sorry friend, here is where you`re wrong: "No, you are the blind, close-minded one because you won`t accept the opinions and viewpoints of others."
    There`s a whole world of difference between listening, understanding and respecting someone`s opinions as opposed to automatically accepting them.
    I make my own decisions, and although I`m not above being influenced, I`ll be chicken-fried f*cked if someone, anyone, you, the government, anyone will make my opinions for me, as you see, friend. I am not a sheep.
    And, I really do hope that you don`t join the masses, that you aren`t one day saying `Bah Bah`.

    The lesson to-day is this. Sometimes, you don`t have to `get` someone, because they`ve already `got` themselves.

    Good-day.

    What?? What the hell did you just say??
    Dude, seriously. I either misread something and am suffering from that concussion that I never receieved or...you mistyped something.

    They should be doing it for the money? Why Shouldn`t they get paid?

    I clearly said pirating music doesn`t hurt the artist as they make their money from merchandise and concerts.

    Should they be working for money, though? No, that`d be dumb, then their art would be forced as a Burger by a McEmployee.

    So....yeah. Take that.

    I was going to say something, but Imeagla basically covered everything, so my comments would be superfluous now. Except:

    I seriously doubt that Almightybob meant that they should work for the money; It`s more likely he meant to say "shouldn`t work for the money" or "should work for the music." Either way, I disagree with him. Music is an art, the entire point of which is to share. If you sat alone in your room and played piano, no matter how masterfully you played, you wouldn`t be as good as the middle schooler playing in his talent show. Technique wise, yes, you`d be better. But music isn`t all technique, it`s about conveying the emotions that went into the piece to the people that listen. Music is meant to be shared. People should support musicians so that they can make a living and be able to keep bringing us the art that enriches our lives.

    But should 50 cent (Note: Completely random choice of artist, this isn`t meant to be a personal attack on him or his fa

No. He should be able to make a living, but he doesn`t deserve the money he`s making.

    The only music that`s worth listening to is that which is made by people that love making it. If they love it, they don`t need fame and fortune as an incentive, just the music.

    Imeagla, you`re right. We`re barely different at all, and while I usually see many ranters on IAB as stuck up morons, I actually like your style.

    But here`s the thing. Both of us are completely ranting on about different things. I understand how you don`t like Criss Angel because he`s a douche and you don`t like magic because grown adults should know better. I say let them believe it, I personally know it`s a trick, and frankly have given up on trying to change their mind. The way I see it, you are trying to force YOUR belief on top of THEIRS, and if you read my posts you`ll see that THAT is what I don`t like. Note how you compared Creation to magic? It`s like you`re converting people to atheism. I don`t like that sort of thing.

    The whole Star Wars crap was just painting a picture of you as some sort of fun-wrecking arse. Which clearly you aren`t in real life, but here you`re being a bit of an arsehole. And I don`t appreciate being patronised. I`m 16, not 13.

    I do actually realise now that Imeagla has credited my points to almightybob. Although we both did take the stance that Imeagla was an unimaginative arse. Well Imeagla, this goes back to forcing your views on others. You`re constricting people`s beliefs and thoughts with your "logic". That`s where my points were coming from. Die hard realism RUINS what comes from imagination. Mythical beasts and fantasy stories can`t be stopped just because people deem them impossible. That`s where my point lies. And magic lies in this fantasy category. You can`t stop it, be it good or bad.

    But the way Imeagla argued made it seem like he hates magic because he hates Criss Angel. But he just wants to see better magic that he can`t figure out. So he`s basically the same as all of us here (`cept Jerry), even though he didn`t make that apparent until now. Btw, if you know how all the saw-in-half tricks work Imeagla, do tell.

    So clearly it`s not magic that`s the problem. It`s Criss Angel.

    Btw, that philosophy point and constricting thought point was actually first aimed at B3nt. Just Imeagla picked the trail up. Read my post about how fantasy stuff and imagination rocks socks. Imeagla agrees. Then go read B3nt`s post about how all that stuff sucks, including all magic. Imeagla agreed with that too. So who can blame us for taking Imeagla to be the big bad guy?

    So now we have two guys on the same side, one saying "I like good magic tricks" and the other "all magic tricks suck". Now do you see how this argumentation is futile? See Imeagla, I read posts more closely that most people here. But your first lot of posts about copyrighting and stuff didn`t apply to my points. Nor did the stuff about magicians earning money from doing "crap" tricks. That fight is with almightybob.

    So what have we learned? Well, goaliejerry for one is a fool. I don`t like B3nt. Most of the rest of us stand in the same court and bicker on assumptions we`ve made. It

    Simply put, when did I ever say I don`t like magic?? Magic -is- entertaining. It`s no different than watching a fabricated television show... You`re arguing something that I`m agreeing with, Andyl. If Criss Angel wasn`t such a doucher...Although, the most recent video of him outing whom-ever was kind of interesting....Angel admits what he does is an Illusion. And, The Saw-in-half trick...As long as you`re talking about the one that was posted on here recently...Involved a midget, a chain saw...a black dude and a stapler? That one? I thought that was just about as neat as f*ck. I`ve no idea how that worked short of I`m sure someone wasn`t sawed in half to be re-connected with a stapler.

    As far as converting people to Atheism...

    Ok, here`s the thing. I don`t know what`s going on in the heavens above me, No one does...The most ridiculous religion I`ve ever heard of is that

    We`re here, through evolution (I -do- believe in evolution) And that`s it. When we die, that`s it. That`s an absurd notion. It`s depressing if nothing else...The thought of nothingness is about as scary as it gets, on a side note....And once again, dude. Die Hard hard realism ruins nothing. Except that movie...Probably wouldn`t have been as popular if `Realism` had been tagged on to the title...

    Eh. De-railed. One moment.

    Ah, yes...Do I think mythological beasts exist? Dur. Of course not...But, that doesn`t ruin the stories for me. I love to read fiction but, that doesn`t mean it`s real. Someone doesn`t have to believe in something to receieve enjoyment from it.
    Yes, Adults should know that what they`re watching isn`t real...Or, else we end up with more John Edwards...But, refering to the saw trick once again...That was cool as sh*t. Find me someone who didn`t like that...

    But, don`t you for an instant tell me you actually believed what you saw was real? You`re smarter than that, this much is perfectly clear...But, you still receieved a form of enjoyment over that...as did I...
    I`m fairly certain that there`s not a Griffin family living in what...32 Spooner street, Quahog, RI...Doesn`t ruin Family Guy for me.
    Maybe it was 34 Spooner street...

    And, Criss Angel`s magic sucks because Criss Angel sucks. Is that my opinion? Of course it is. Although, it is pretty much fact, once again pointing to the fact that he had relations with Paris Hilton, and if you don`t think she sucks...then...I dunno.

    Oh, and by-the-by, Andyl. I find that once you reach your character limit...Just re-click on the message box and continue typing, using cntrl-x to cut away everything above 1000 characters and then pasting it in the bottom, cutting away the excess until you`ve reached the end..Much easier to proof read and such...

    As far as B3nt goes, he`s against magic tricks. More power to him, if you look at his post the most of his venting is at the Gypsies and Carnies and such...Who make a living preying on people who wish to believe...Like John Edwards...We`ve all seen the South Park episode...So, I don`t have to say that he`s the biggest Douche in the Universe...But, I will.
    He`s the biggest Douche in the Universe. Huh...said it twice, didn`t I?
    And, for the record. I -never- once said I`m not a bit of an assh*le. Hell. I`ll come right out and say I -am- an assh*le. That is one thing I`ll not argue with. I`m -not- a nice person, I`m callous, acidic and pretty anti-social...Probably some other things...But....We`ll leave it at that for the time being.

    Oooh, and Andyl, I believe it was KoalaMeatPie that started the whole...Magician`s code thing, not GoalieJerry, though Jerry was quick to jump on the doucher Band-wagon.
    Oh...Do you have AIM, Andyl? Perhaps we could continue this through that medium..?
    This is actually a bit of fun..
    You know why we`re good at arguing, Andyl?
    `cause we`re Master-debaters..
