Leap of Faith looks great. I don't mind the arts-and-crafts; I'm assuming that it's not too hard to make, and you probably don't have to worry about an elaborate gimmick breaking(flap card!)requiring an expensive replacement. Maybe something like Fan2c?

Just created the set-up for Leap of Faith. Took approximately 15 minutes to make.

FALL....why such high reviews?

A felt tip pen, very precariously balanced on a pack of cards, placed on a glass, topples off.

Well it must have Einstein, Galileo & Sir Isaac Newton completely baffled and spinning in their graves. And talking of graves, the folk in the performance clip looked as if they were at a wake. Hardly a 'WOW' moment when the pen fell, was it! Smile Smile

What then was the actual effect? A pen, that looks like it's being placed upon its fine point of middle balance, topples off. In the same way that other everyday items at home will very often fall if (again) precariously placed down. In the same way that it probably would if someone gently nudged the table; or if there was a draught.

But it's cheaper than another version so that makes it good. And it's a Sharpie which everyone recognises. Really?

People are going to want to pick this up to examine. Possible? Errrrrm.

I've not watched any of these reviews for heaven knows how long. But if this is representative of the utter 'magician's magic' tripe still being released, then I've clearly not been missing very much.

And people seduced by wasting their time buying this cr@p are the ones that never apparently have the time to read books, nor study Vernon.

Jeeeeezus Christ.

Barry, you're perspective is one that I never tire of reading!
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".
