Topic: Am I the last to find this site?

While researching something else, I ran across an interesting site. I’m probably the last to find it: http://www.mallusionist.com/index.html.

When I first saw it, I was really incensed because it seemed that the guy was giving away the tricks. But as I read further, it turned out…well, just read some “daffy-nitions” . http://www.mallusionist.com/tradesecrets/glossary.shtml

For example,

Cold deck: A deck of cards that has been kept in the refrigerator to preserve crispness.

Or

Double lift: A British building with two elevators.

If you HAVEN’T seen it, it really is a riot. I’m sure it took SOMEONE a very long time to do this site because there is page after page of stuff. But it made my day.

He DOES have some SERIOUS links and he does sell some stuff but the majority of it is very funny.

Looks like its from the guy who owns Ellusionist.com which I've purchased a few effects from.

About time magicians take the mickey out of themselves. So many think they really perform actual magic and take themselves way too seriously. Way more serious than musicians...

Sorry to disappoint, Ray, but I think I've just taken your title. I'm now the last to find it.

Also, props to whoever had the time and creativity to write this whole list. I can't stop laughing at the definition for "plant".

Plant: Vegetation secretly put on the stage by the magician to give the audience the feeling that they might be outside.
