Yea, that's been my problem for decades. No luck so far.

It could also imply "to the mass market"

I don't care. I want magic in my mailbox every month without thinking. There you go, I said it.
Oh, one condition, by those named in the ad.

Michael Weber is excited! He is pretty low key ok? If he is excited then I am jumping up and down over here.

This product, if you can call it that, is being discussed at length on UK forums too. Most of us are wary, there's the odd one or two that have parted with their cash but they're in the minority.

I find it laughable that anyone would buy in given the circumstances -

1) You don't know what you're getting.
2) You might not even be chosen to receive it. How this will be decided fairly is beyond me.
3) Do you really think it will be new & never seen before? Do me a favour. Nothing in magic is new.
4) You're not allowed to talk about it.
5) RS seem to be using emmotional blackmail to get you to sign up. Buy now or lose out forever.

I'm sure you'll receive items so I won't call it a scam, but the way it's been touted is exactly like a scam. Good luck to those that have paid up. I hope you don't feel ripped off when it starts. Not that any of us non-believers will ever hear about it due to the gagging order you've had to agree to. Even if you're dissatisfied how many of you would be prepared to admit publicly you've been stitched up?


Sounds like I need to move to the UK, at least they don't have their heads up their orifices. Get your flame retardant suit on man you are going to need it. I said the same thing, and anyone who supports this is either affiliated with RS or just not that business savvy. Or just not that bright and has money to burn. Probably a combination. But geady to get quoted and attacked by the sheeple. But at least I was able to get a lot discussion brewing, and as someone mentioned this thread would be pretty boring otherwise. Just the same people saying over and over how "excited they are" over a mystery product. I think I will just let this thread die, or let someone else take over entertaining the old, mature men. You are the chosen one now.

Well, all I can say is that I hope it all works out great for those that have invested. Especially for James as I've already seen his wrath unleashed before when he feels as though he has been ripped off and I don't care to see it again! lol

I bet if they cancelled RS as part of their "changed terms", and with no refunds, all the supporters in this thread would still be ecstatic. "Thank you RS anyway for the possibility of this all! It was fun while it lasted! I will keep auto-billing intact to express my sincere appreciation!" Smile

What is it with this obsession with "old" men? And why do you say it as if it were an insult?

Because he claims he has been a magician for 30 years, whereas in reality, he is a child and very self conscious about that fact. Why? ......I have NO idea.

Yeah, I know Frenchy, but I’m getting old, cranky and losing my patience. Besides, there is nothing worth watching on T.V. anymore. Smile

Kinda like your mom still does today? That is why I am ignoring you from here on out, and your old date gaffed.

I hope so. Maybe the personal attacks will stop now and I won't have to defend myself, and we can keep the focus on the "product".

There's that "old" put-down again - and this from a guy who must be in his mid-40's at least, given that he's been performing magic for 30 years... Smile

Sirbrad, PLEASE don't say you're going to go! We know what that means: you'll add at least 5 more threads of your disrespectful whining!

AND, according to his own post in this thread, he's been a "working professional" for 27 years! Don't forget that little nugget. Smile

I was thinking he came up with that number by taking his actual age and adding 10 years...but given the sophistication of his "humor," I think I was giving him too much credit. Maybe he got 27 by taking his age and doubling it.

I guarantee he hasn't made his last post here.

Basically the guy is a total numpty. A self-diagnosing proctologist, (as I said on another thread), his mouth and ears are full of his own ****. It's strangely compelling, like watching a mangy rat fall into a tub of dayglo paint, then comedically fall over a series of painful obstacles, before finally gruesomely expiring in an extraordinarily violent and protracted scenario.


Hopefully.

No vested interest in RS, just heartily sick of the Café's answer to Holden Caulfield.

Blech.
