Greetings Magic Lovers!
I did not know where this kind of post would be best posted
so I picked here..


Here is a fun little quiz for all you Magic Lovers…?


1.) quote: Who said this..?
"He would be a very lame performer who would simply take a card off the pack (or out of it) and hand
it to a spectator with the remark, Here's your card."

2.) Who is know as the inventor of the telephone trick?

3.) What well know name in magic had a lot of stage fright which gave him an ironic advantage when performing mentalism? He would shake and break out into a sweat because he was so upset; his audiences believe that this was their "proof" that he was putting forth incredible mental effort!

4.) Who is know as the inventor of the book test?

5.) David Frederick Wingfield Verner is better know as…?(what name did he go by to magicians?)

6.) What well known magician that called himself the King of Card, is quoted as a subject matter expert in Dale Carnegie’s book “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”

He appears in Part Two, Chapter One ("Do This and You'll Be Welcome Anywhere")?

7.) Who was referred to as the Dean of American Magicians?

8.) Who is known as the inventor of mental epic?

9.) Who was the first president of The Magic Circle 1905-06?


Do you know what the Answers are?

Does any one know for a fact any neat magic trivia..?

Thanks
Chuck

Dai Vernon said his shuffle for Triumph in Stars of Magic was inspired by an effect created by a magician of this name...

Jack McMillen's Voodoo Card Rise. I think it also inspired the Vernon multiple shift.

God, is that what it takes to draw you out man? Finally. Hmmm. Let's see. Where is the first place Erdnase makes mention of the bottom palm?

1.) quote: Who said this..?
"He would be a very lame performer who would simply take a card off the pack (or out of it) and hand
it to a spectator with the remark, Here's your card."

Hint: I found the quote in a book titled "The Living End"
And I believe you can find that same quote in "Downs' Art of Magic"

Oh Cr*p! Of course, J.G. Thompson Jr.! I knew I recognised it, I just read it the
other day!
And since Downs' Art of Magic was actually written by Hilliard, I guess Hilliard is the correct answer.
Woke up.
Fell out of bed.
Dragged a comb across m' head.
