My favorite is when I dropped it, the teacher asked if I had a quarter out, and I put it in the Goshman pinch to show my hands empty, then she resumed writing on the board, and I resumed coin rolling :lol:


HAHAHA. That's smart!

Same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I was practising the 1 card pirroette (the little flourish were the single cards spins around you finger), The rest of the deck was in my pocket. The teacher said "give me the card" I quickly put it in backpalm and said "What card?" The teacher had the funniest look on his face. Kodak moment!
As for the coin roll. I havent ever been bothered timing myself. I just do it every now and then when im doing coin magic and someone says - ""Hey, can you do that thing with the coin that johnny depp does in POC?"

The guiness record is 60 or 70 something which adds up to 1 per second or more. I can do around 40, if I get on a roll, pardon the pun, I can do almost 50.

wher do you det this information from. i have been looking and every where i seeit still says 51 is the record. the guy who did 67 dint count because his hand whas vertical. My best is 54 but with a little practice i can probaly do a little under 60.

so like i was saying i think the record is still 51 but if you have anyother info pleas tell me im going to feel very stupid if i practise and send a video and then realize 51 isnt the current record. My technique is unlike any ive seen yet the coin basically rolls off my fingures with no effert
