MAD Penn and Teller FOOLED by the BEST CARD TRICK OF ALL TIME !! On Fool Us

The "How did Penn and Teller do that trick?" thread (WITH SPOILERS)

Yeah, I was confused again by Penn's insistence on a deck switch being part of the secret. It's like two weeks ago when he was baffled by the phone book page It's where they might be most vunerable, especially if as said upthread you try to win on a technicality by having what looks like a deck switch palm, cull, etc. That's why I think the guideline of "one way to figure out the trick" should be bent; I think they should have a more formal rule "three wrong guesses and we're fooled. So he'll have two cards that are crimped, punched, daubed or something that he can feel to indicate which card was selected. If the blindfold was actually infrared goggles, daubing the cards with infrared ink would be perfect.

Hi folks. Spent the last week in Vegas, where I caught Penn and Teller's show which completely rocked. They did a trick that involved determining which joke audience members would select out of a joke book. Several joke books were passed around the audience and whoever wound up with one of the books was told to flip through and find a joke that they identifed with somehow. While remaining on stage, Penn was able to determine the joke that they had selected.

In the last half decade, magic—normally deemed entertainment fit only for children and tourists in Las Vegas—has become shockingly respectable in the scientific world. Even I—not exactly renowned as a public speaker—have been invited to address conferences on neuroscience and perception. I asked a scientist friend whose identity I must protect why the sudden interest. But after I share what I know, my neuroscientist friends thank me by showing me eye-tracking and MRI equipment, and promising that someday such machinery will help make me a better magician. I have my doubts.

  1. google "magic book test", this is a pretty common trick and there's many ways it Likely Penn knows every single joke in that book very well.

  2. Although some would argue that it's best to watch a magic show without thinking too much about how the tricks were done, I imagine that there are others on the board like me who want to talk about how they pulled off some of their incredible illusions.

  3. The second thing is that, for the cell phone/fish trick, the audience . same pages in the book, but the person picking the joke is so excited to be.
