Hey did you reach the other side of the bowl again magicfish? Forgot where you were already?

Look at what I wrote about the kid. I know reading is fundimental but comprehension is an advanced skill.

I was supportive of the kid. I said he was happy doing what he was doing, and let him be happy. So was THAT what was condecending?

Or was it the part where I told Jonathan I KNEW he worked? Was THAT condecending and acting like I was the only one with real world experience?

Oh wait when I complimented Larry THAT must have been when I was condecending and acting like I was the only one with real world experience right?

Or was it when I though Jonathan may have compared apples and oranges in situations.

Please show me what it is you speak of. Or better yet instead of following me around and trying to pick at my posts and just posting something in anger that contributes NOTHING to the thread, why not post some of your real world experience for us? How would that be for a change maigicfish?

You tell us your thoughts on the thread SUBJECT, instead of just comming out and attacking me for no reason.

Do you work in restaurants at all? Do you have experience that may help? Do you have an opinion on what it is the original poster has put forth? Or do you only have second TIER educational attacks on me?

Yea, an exibition of your need to follow me for some strange reason and simply attack me.

But seriously magicfish, if you have nothing to contribute, why not just send me a PM, so nobody knows?

Danny, your attacks don't really bother me... but you told the gentleman that the restaurant he works in must be in fantasy land. I don't understand. He's trying to contribute something from experience and you're basically telling him he's full of it. Do you not believe him?

Jonathan wrote about having customers removed from the restaurant because they were being rude...I've never been in a restaurant where that happens. If every restaurant in America did that, they'd make VERY VERY little in the way of profit. Fantasy land? Perhaps...I could hardly see a typical restaurant having someone escorted from the property because they were rude and maybe using a bit of profanity. Then again, that's just me.

Finally some progress; so you're saying he is lying.

Wow...took me like 5 minutes to find your post. Really, if you want to be sarcastic, at least make it easy to read what you're tying to be funny about.

No, I didn't say he's lying, that's why I said perhaps. Not definitely.

PERHAPS:
Pronunciation:
\pər-ˈhaps, ˈpraps\
Function:
adverb
Etymology:
per + hap
Date:
1528

: possibly but not certainly : maybe


So what...are you Jonathan's twice removed first cousin or something? I'm going to go out on a limb here and say he's an adult...I think he can handle his own battles. If you want to get into a shouting match, by all means we can continue this via PM or email.

I hope I can get this out without the usual suspects just dragging this down because it is me saying it.

First off I found it the only magician ever working where kids were running around the room and didn't give a hoot LOL.

As for the "performace" was I to believe that this was some set up sort of contest, and the "live performance" was part of this? I mean he was working at a fast food place basically, not where most would imagine a restaurant worker to be. I don't think the kid claims to be a restaurant worker per se, just that this was part of some contest. If this was answered I appologise. But that makes me cut the kid some slack in that case.

Is he a great "performer"? Obviously not. Is he trying to be? Well from what I can see no so I don't really hold that against him. He likes the moves, for himself. I am not sure he cares if anyone else does. He will find out soon enough on his own that people don't watch that for long. Again I cut him some slack. It seems like some sort of new breed of "move monkey" has evolved in the art.

As for "Extreme Card Manipulation", I find the term laughable. Why does everyone under the age of 20 (plus Criss Angel) over use the term EXTREME as some sort of new marketing ploy? What exactly was so "extreme" or even new in what he did? I have more problems with the goofy terms than I do with the kid LOL.

Would it work in a restaurant? Please no need to even worry about it. The kid in this viceo does not even seem as if he wants to work them, so I cut him a lot of slack.

Now those prone to do so may just flame me for whatever reason they find. Wheather they agree or not, just flame away.


Not to quote myself or anything magicfish, but you came in right on cue. LOL. Thanks for playing.

Warning incoming Goodwin's Law:
I have one thing to say :

Saying you can't do XCM in a restaurant is akin to the Nazi's forcing the Jews into the ghettos!!

There.. the thread is dead... NEXT TOPIC.

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh....WHAT???!!!!

BTW, be careful what comments you leave on that YouTube page. I called that 15 year old kid out and my comment got nuked. All I did was ask him "what restaurant experience could you possibly have at 15?"

Guess they didn't like that. Smile

Please tell me you are kidding about calling out a 15 year old boy about his restaurant experience. He made the "live" video for the contest. He NEVER claimed to perform XCM in a restaurant or to be a restaurant performer. The original poster of the link brought up the question about performing XCM in a restaurant. This boy is simply having fun entering a contest.

No Kamm, actually I was calling ANOTHER punk out on this line..."..but to say that XCM in general has no place in a restaurant setting seems to me to be very close-minded."

I was just wondering what experience he has to make such a comment.

Thank you I understand now.

Here is an XCM stage performance. The kid has some guts. He does drop all the cards at one point and simply pulls out another deck and continues. The audience gets a kick out of it. The audience loves the arm ribbon spreads too. Interesting.

FYI


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin's_law

Godwin's Law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies)[1] is an adage formulated by Mike Godwin in 1990. The law states:[2][3]

"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."

Godwin's Law is often cited in online discussions as a caution against the use of inflammatory rhetoric or exaggerated comparisons, and is often conflated with fallacious arguments of the reductio ad Hitlerum form.

The rule does not make any statement whether any particular reference or comparison to Hitler or the Nazis might be appropriate, but only asserts that one arising is increasingly probable. It is precisely because such a comparison or reference may sometimes be appropriate, Godwin has argued[4] that overuse of Nazi and Hitler comparisons should be avoided, because it robs the valid comparisons of their impact. Although in one of its early forms Godwin's Law referred specifically to Usenet newsgroup discussions,[5] the law is now applied to any threaded online discussion: electronic mailing lists, message boards, chat rooms, and more recently blog comment threads and wiki talk pages.
