So I was sitting at this table with two of my friends in my Cable Broadcasting class, and I was performing some tricks for them.

For the first trick I did, I had one of my friends pick any card and put it anywhere in the deck. I took over after he put the card halfway in and I left it sticking out to do a shuffle control to get the card to the bottom. I knew I had messed it up and I said, "Actually, nevermind; I know what I want to show you."

So I was going to do another trick and have him pick a new card. I riffled through the deck and had him say "stop" anywhere. No force at all. He said "stop" whenever he wanted and I cleanly stopped there and lifted the pack to show him the card.
He started laughing, and I knew what had happened. So basically he stopped me at his card that I lost the first time.

By luck it turned a horrible trick into a freaking MIRACLE!

I had a similar experience while doing an ambitious card routine.

I had a friend randomly select a card, which turned out to be a duplicate.

I somehow messed a move up and sheepishly retrieved the card and decided to do a reversal.

One card was of course face down in a face up deck....

The face down card was next to a face up card that was her selection, and the face down card was also her selection.

After shuffling and cutting the duplicates had somehow met--my eyes nearly popped from their sockets.

It was so strange, but made me look amazing because she had selected the only card that had a duplicate, and I had somehow manipulated both.

Now if you could just package that little accident, market it, why you could be rolling in the dough!
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.
