The Professor stated that the cups and balls contained all the elements of magic ( transpos, vanishes, etc. ).

Magicians use the patter that it was HOUDINI who said he considers no man to be a magician until he can adequately perform the Cups and Balls.

The answer is none of them said it because it was obvious to those people it wasn't true. when did we become this mediocre? this is not the reputation of magicians.

lets defend settling for mediocre or a copy of mediocre. or forget it I'm just gonna get a job at mc donalds.

you know I'm getting a little tired after running around in here scream blatantly obvious things. I might jump out of here pretty soon. no offence.

This reminds me of when I got into a fight with a certain "Dark Knight" on the pitch.
I tore off his hubcaps, bent his windshield wipers, and threw his license plates into the ocean.
He goes by the name, "Godfather of Magic".

Jimmy, you're passionate and I love that. I'm only posting some thoughts because I'm trying to understand the art of the street ( I'm a wannabe, so take what I say with a grain of salt ).

Brother Devious, thank you for the kind words!

I am glad I'm not the only one that noticed everyone doing the same cups and balls act. Makes me not want to use my 2 cup routine I been working on for a few years.

"A magician needs to work hard and become great."

"Is that what you do?"

"No, I'm already great."

Gazzo.
