What in the hell... If anyone knows how he did this, can you let us know? Was it CGI? Black Magic? Sorcery?

While Trump rushed to assume acknowledgment for the venture, the arrangement is "steady with what we reported already," Joe Hinrichs, Ford's President of the Americas, disclosed to NBC News UK coursework service taking note of that every one of the three tasks were underway well before Trump took office  the biggest, including a $850 million gathering plant speculation, endorsed as a feature of an arrangement with the United Auto Workers Union in 2015.

I was sitting in a very boring site meeting with 20 or so other folks.  After the conversation became very specific to two individuals at the far end of the large table my mind was wandering.  I had carved thumbnail doodles into my styrofoam cup and put it down.  I started to twiddle my thumbs and without really thinking, I went through a couple of the removable finger actions.  The QA rep, sitting across from me at the table, caught my actions in the corner of his eye.

He yelled "holy fucking shit!" while leaping to his feet and sending his chair flying. The room went silent.  He looked around rather sheepishly, apologized, and sat down.  

After the meeting we had a huge laugh and I had to demonstrate my finger removal skills in a more suitable setting for a number of people.

Best reaction ever to a sleight of hand performance of mine.

squrlz4ever Good enough, I guess.  I just caught him when he wasn't paying close attention and it was so far outside of his expectations of the moment that it prompted a strong reaction.

It was a very boring, rather long meeting.

This guy's sleight of hand is magnificent. I don't want to spoil it--at least not right away. But I will say there is absolutely no CGI or video editing trickery here.

squrlz4ever I confirm. If you know what you are looking for, it is easy to spot what's going on.

m3dm3d Please reveal! There's a move he does at the end where it looks like he detached his digit from his hand.

fancylad What you need to do that is:
1- 12.98$. This is the easy part
2- a lot of practice. And don't underestimate this step.

Some are more or less pricey, but depending on how close up you want to be you need good stuff.

fancylad I think you're already understanding all the moves leading up to the last--that's the real pièce de résistance.

He's actually snapping the middle finger of his left hand in and out of view to make it appear it's his detached right pinky. At the very instant he snaps the middle finger into view, he pops his pinky behind his hand so that it disappears from view--then pops it back up again. The timing and angles are impeccable. Just amazing.
