This routine probably originated in India, using beads. It arrived in the UK, circa 1813, but changed. The performer used pearls, and so ended up with a necklace.

My favorite new version of this is Bizzaro's 'Lite Snack'. His is the best version of lit bulbs from mouth I've seen.

The Indian routine sounds great! I love pearl necklaces.... I can't believe I'm writing that.

I've debated using my right hand Nipps, I hold my life (my PDA) in my left...I foresee many bank card wipes til I get used to them.

I'll steer clear of Dave, lol

I never thought of the pearls and pins being the same effect, but I guess they are.

Is Lite Snack publically available? Or perhaps a video of Bizzaro doing it? I don't think I've seen a lit bulbs from mouth before. Sounds cool!

Nips, Dave's certainly something. Don't know if he's magnet sensitive though. I suppose it depends on how hard you throw them at him Smile

Oh p!ss off Ros ( Smile ) ... I'm still thinking about boobs and pear neclaces .... you lot can go on about side show and stuff and I am staying with real antiques and the boobs - you have to really watch out some one will take you for a mark any chance they get adn sell you somehting that is not really an antique! I was nearly sold this mobile for a kids bed ...... well that wasnt needed after all .... and I did not buy it ..... lovely round shiny objects cathcing the light and making little rainbows - they even had holes in the middle to hang them from the cross over rods. I nealy bought it from that antique shop ..... then I relaised ....... they didn't have cat gut fishing wire back in the 20s! They nearly got me with that one!

Out of the hundred or so people that have them (including several students at MIT) have reported that while the magnets are incredibly strong for their size, they do not damage "magnetic sensitive" objects.

There he is Smile

Wondered how long it'd be before you popped your head round the door.

I'm glad to see you've got your priorities in order.

Although for a moment I did think you were going to start talking about topless OAPs when you combined boobs and antiques in one sentence.... Now there's an idea for the zib tent.

Now I would come up with some witty insult to fire back at you, but I'm going to watch Derren take down some fake psychics. Always good for a laugh Smile

So, Dave and Ros are now in discussion about who's attractive, and who's repulsive?

I'm willing to field questions, though I've never met either one of them.

I heard that Ros is dipolar, and Dave mono.

Yep, I was there. Smile

It's not on the market, Biz just created it fairly recently. He mentioned that possibly in the future he will make it available.

Lightbulbs-from-mouth was around, I think, in about the mid 80s. I got a set then, from Flosso Magic.

I shall never forget that store, packed to the gills with everything. Jackie Flosso was running it. He said he knew he had it somewhere, and he did.

Now I'm going to have to find it. I think I know where it is. But my barn has a lot of boxes.

For anyone interested, I can produce a more edible razor blade.

No you're not gullible (that I know of), it's a special heat treatment that makes them similar to lightbulb in brittleness. I have some bugs to work out with the treatment as it tends to make the blade edge all wavy.

So you could actually eat them?

Would they be too brittle to have examined?

If a spectator tried to bend it, it will break. If you used it to slice a piece of paper, it will! My biggest concern is the digestion of metal shards. I don't know how we get away with glass, but maybe our resident medic (Jeremy) could add some insight. After some good R&D I will probably market the gimmick.
