.. having just figured out how to beat the side arm loops on my friend's Posey without use of external leverage. Yay! Smile

Don't know if this post will just make me look like the greenhorn I am, but stuff it, I never claimed to be in the league of the big boys and girls here (yet). I'm chuffed anyway, those rotten loops have given me all sorts of problems before, but now it is I who have the last laugh - mwuhahahah!

The next stage is to practice getting it off without taking my wig off with it while wearing stilletto heels.. Houdini never did that one, or at least not that I'm aware of.

<edit> Ok, thought of a way of making this into decent thread fodder;

What were your favourite eureka moments, when you finally figured a way out of a personal plateau or difficult escape, or that otherwise marked your personal developement as an escape artist?

My favorite eureka moment, probably won't mean much to most of the people here, but it was doing a handcuff challege while totally green and new to both handcuffs and lock picking. It was in a college dorm party and money was on the table (a bet). The person I bet was the first I had encountered who either understood the correct application of handcuffs, or got lucky in putting them on. I was cuffed with wrists opposing and locks pointing away.

I didn't really understand why everything seemed backwards to me, but I went a head and have it a try. Thankfully the person had not applied them too tightly, and I was able to get free through dumb luck and pure pigheadedness (not wanting to loose a bet either)

After that I got a little more scientific and studied what I was oding more seriously.

P.S. aside to Helen, you really had me laughing on the floor in your video with your line.... "You fond out my secret, I'm not a natrual brunette!" truely hysterical.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!
