But now that you brought it up (pun intended) that would be a funny presentation... and it would give you a reason to reach into your pants and do some PW. Smile


I didn't think mentalists used magic wands. Smile

Wait until you have invest hours and hours answering the same questions over a period of years, and you too have a high post count, and see what you think about people who are either; unaware (so they are told to do a search), or lazy (want someone else to always do their work for them), or self important (think nobody else ever asked that question) and then see how you feel.

There are more good answers in the archives than get posted in response to any single questions asked today. So I think they are doing do a favor when telling you to look it up. They do it fairly consistently on questions which are extremely common and already answered ad nausem in the past.

But apparently you take offense at it? Why do you think you deserve special treatment?

But even if you do deserve it.... It hardly seems like a good plan to insult the people who have large post counts, since for some of them, that post count represents knowledge and experience, and they could probably actually answer your questions if they chose to, or were not offended by this post which could be interpreted negatively.

See what happens when your schools fail to teach you the basics of scholarly protocol.

We have a FAQ, and even a beginner's section.

We have a search function and most folks are willing to discuss new takes on old ideas.

Just because it's easy to post a question does not mean it's the easiest way to get an answer.

You want to spend a year (give of take 10 years) reading 8 volumes of a book that you may only use about 1/100th (or less) of it's contents?

It took you a YEAR to read those books? Unless you are going to DO a peice, it only takes a couple of minutes to read it, and a few hours to read the book. Take a week and read the thing.

Well your probable right since I have never read all of it since I don't have as much time for magic as I would wish. But he offered to say which effects were good and some effects you have to practice for them to seem good (i.e. cups and balls).
