Topic: Dime in the rough (A trick from the great David Kenney)
Message: Posted by: DA (Dec 20, 2002 07:38PM)
All right, I was performing some magic at a dinner for my famly, when I decided to perform a great trick called dime in the rough. I did the normal set up and began by borrowing a dime, I did all the steps so all that was left was to release the dime from the shaker top. Well it so happened that the rim was to narrow to fit a dime in it. So I'm slaming the salt shaker trying to get the dime out and salt is flying over my shoulder at the table behind me, and well, you get the idea. Any other stories of tricks gone wrong?

I was doing an effect with "rocket fuel" one time, (Actually lighter fluid) where I was blindfolded and had to drink the glasses one by one until one was left. Anyway, the last glass is set on fire, and the liquid bubbled up and spilled over the sides of the glass and onto my hand , burning me severely. I would call that " gone wrong!"
