Without seeming like a shill for Genii magazine -)
I want to say that I find it an excellent value and a good publication. When you combine that with the online-access you get to past Genii issues (through the Conjuring Arts Center database), it's a very good deal. It's very handy, when someone says "this sleight was discussed in Genii month X/year Y", in a discussion or a book's footnote, to be able to go check out the reference.

Best regards,
Larry S.

I like Genii the magazine. I think the remark in question is benign. I am beginning to prefer Genii, the forum; although, the trolls seem to be everywhere...

By Funsway's reasoning, everyone that works for Genii magazine then is a piece of **** for condoning the article by way of allowing it to be published. Kinda hard to believe that stance could be such an absolute thus resulting in a canceled subscription.
What happened to the interpretive understanding of literal vs. figurative.
I don't like some shows on t.v. , do I cancel my Comcast subscription -noooooo.

I'm concerned. : (

One more line item, I could never qualify to throw the first stone - AT ALL.

I personally do not agree with your reason for not subscribing, but that is your right.

I must have missed all of this but I thought Acer's comment was hilarious. I also find it interesting that people bring up the fact that Stephen Hawking has Lou Gehrig's Disease as if this all would be ok if only he wasn't in a wheelchair. I'm reminded of a group of stutterers who picketed the opening of Nike Town in Southern California years ago because they used a banner with Porky Pig on it.

Comedy comes from tragedy. Where's the problem?

Now, now,'re not advocating death as the result of tasteless comedy are you? Smile

Frankly, I believe I read it in the way it was meant: A play on words between the "law of physics" and the world's most famous physicist.

I think this is a good example from which we all can learn. We all come from different backgrounds and we all have different perspectives deeply rooted in our individual life experiences. How we express our thoughts and feelings can often draw people in for a closer look or propel them away, often losing the opportunity to convey a message when the method of delivery alienates the audience. Words do matter. I have had this discussion with a professional well known magician who often embraces their freedom of expression and speech with little to no disregard for the audience or tha community of magic at large. While he is free to express himself and many have fought and died to protect that right, what is permissable is not always beneficial. I am not intending to support or denounce what was in the article. I am reminding us that our words do paint pictures, create or spur thoughts and evoke emotions. Realizing that as magicans perhaps we should utilize the "one ahead" principle and consider the weight of our words before we speak them, right them or text them.
