Seems like christians multiply by dividing! No one can agree what the Bible or God really says! You really have to listen carefully with a pure heart to hear God's voice in your head.

Yeah. Usually if you hear voices its schitzophrenia though.

What about Oral Roberts when he saw a 900 ft. Jesus? You think that wasn't real!!! You know Jesus can be any size he wants.

Like the 60 foot Jesus at Solid Rock Church? Smile

But seriously...

To my knowledge, Houdini originated the straitjacket escape, but Hardeen was the first to perform it in full view.
In turn, Houdini was the first to do it hanging upside down from a lofty height.

Who was the first to employ the burning rope idea, I don't know.

Steve,

I'm bowing so low you can see my buttocks being held in by my belt like the bosom of the hooker at my local tavern.

Steve, No, but I do look like a rather handsome one. My back hurts more than than my dog did when he decided to play with a porcupine - can I get up now?

The only 900ft Jesus I like is MC 900 Ft Jesus.

(This also involves a box escape)

Is anyone here aware of trolls? News to me, but apparently
there are "troll" forums. The only way to be a member of a
troll forum is to prove yourself by going to any other forum
and stirring up trouble. Forum content and thread discussions
don't matter, as long as the user causes major problems with
the forum regulars. I also understand extra points are issued
if threads become locked or members get banned. At my
blacksmithing forum we have a saying... "Don't feed the trolls".
As tempting as it may be to engage, react and respond to these
troublemakers, ignoring them is the only way.

as for the houdini tank what is the problem. it combines two of his greatest creations and truly looks great as a monument to remember the most famous magician in Magic.



And those 2 creations would be what? I can only think of 1 in the picture I saw. But I could be wrong. There are people on here who know a lot more about Houdini than I do.

The Water Torture Cell and his straitjacket escape (could even say his suspended straitjacket escape).

Dave, I'm not that fat!

Quote from the article Sam spoke about:
Quote:
A (presumably cheeky) news release, cited by both the Times and Playbill, describes Harris as "an accomplished amateur magician,"


"cheeky" . . . seems like some of the press is a little surprised he is an "an accomplished amateur magician," . . . (quotes are theirs, not mine.) Who knows, maybe they think the whole thing is "cheeky" - I don't pay much attention to actors lives one way or the other.


John, I really don't see combining two feats of Houdini into something he never did as a tribute to him . . . and if you watched the show, you would see that was not the plan. NPH thought he did do the straitjacket underwater and didn't bother to fact check - and the Castle doesn't seem to care that the facts on Houdini are wrong to change it. Who cares about facts anyway? I mean, let's put up a memorial to Lincoln in the Battle of Gettysberg . . . .

Dude it's not a "your fat joke". I wasn't calling you fat - I promise......

There is a joke about a man who bumps off his wife and buries her under his drive. But he leaves her bum sticking up out of the drive. His friend who knows he killed his wife asks if he really liked her bum and wanted to see it everyday still. His reply was ..... It's just so I. Can park my bike.

I didn't say it was a good joke!!
