    Gerry adds to the flavour of the week! This is a little more sophisticated that the old yogi`s anchored stick/chair combo in that the walking stick has to engage the plate under the carpet, and the seat has to fold and latch, so it looks a lot better.

    Goddamn America`s Got Talent is stupid, and the same goes for the crowd. Half of this show is staged, scripted poo.

    @ Carmium: So... so you`re saying I *shouldn`t* go back to practicing my chanting and yoga poses?

    All you f.uckers can say ALL you want that you know how he does it, but you don`t.

    Is it fake? Well is he f.ucking floating? Of course not.

    However, he walks out with his stick which is in no way connected to the ground or his arm. Obviously he engages them somehow but that in itself is a pretty damn good trick and linking to the old yogi trick where it is one solid piece is a total disservice to how good this trick is.

    Fake you say? .... Well DUH!
    It`s called "gravity" and last I checked it was still affecting this planet.

    Do you need to point out it`s fake?
    Do you see a magician or illusionist and yell "FAKE!"?
    Can you not simplly enjoy the show?

    (Whispering): It`s not really fake.

    It`s an old trick, but his presentation was better than most. It was enjoyable but don`t see how the trick can evolve too much.

    Gerry1of1-"It`s called "gravity"

    There`s no such thing as gravity.

    The Earth just sucks.

    Sorry, HolyGod, it was a decent presentation but some of us f.uckers do know exactly how he did it.

    @carmium
    Yes, he had to engage the staff into the plate (using a simple locking hinge) but there is no need for a folding, latching seat. He is strapped snugly into a supporting harness attached to the support running down his left sleeve.

    I am kinda curious what he`ll follow up with in Vegas...

    Thanks, Chalket. Always go for the simplest solution and you`re usually correct. I should have thought that a flexible harness is the best solution.
