I'm at school and i did something and some kid who is like a show-off or just an attention getter. HE and his friend were playing with i think a techdeck and it fell on the floor. I picked it up and tried to flip it, the kid laughed (naturally) and said your so fake.. HUH? he said your not even a real magician he said all your tricks are fake... Ok how do i respond to that. This kid is a moron and thinks that a "magician" really have special powers and can fly like superman. So how do i respond? Thanks and ne other comebacks you can think of share... Thanks

whose deck of cards was it? yours or the other guys? and what do you mean by "I tried to flip it"?

if you were performing and this happened, I would advise you to practice more before performing again.

If the kid is like that he will never believe that you can do magic so just say something like "Oh my god! You actually think magic is real? What a moron." Or you could just say "so?" :D

Ok i think you guys misunderstood. (thats understandible, lol)

He was playing with a tech-deck (Mini...mini skatebord aka fingerboard) i tried to flip it and i suck at it. He then radomly said your so fake. You cant even do real magic.

I didnt do ne thing, but he knows i do magic and ive shown him a few tricks did them flawlessly but as ne layme thinks it just a trick

Well maybe he thought it was just a trick because it was just a trick! :lol:
Perhaps you need to work on your performance.

What were the tricks that you did on him? Maybe someone can give some pointers on performing them better.

I would bide my time with this one; then totally fry him with a book test or floating bill or something when no one else is around. Then refuse to do it again. If you do this, be prepared to undergo high demand for your magic, as if you do well he will likely not shut up about it for a very long time, and you will gain a reputation through word of mouth. If you're as good as you should be, this will be a benefit.

It may be that you performed your trick flawlessly. You could learn to float for real or mass produce diamonds from your ear lobes, but if the presentation does no effect on your spec, all you did was a trick. Magic is a performance, not just handling cards and gimmicks. I would just advise you to work on the presentation. :D

I don't think anyone knows what anyone else here is talking about.

Anyway, why do you have to say anything. You don't have to prove anything, and you can just smile and walk away. I know it looks like your life is over and you will have to move to Antarctica to get away from the embarrassment, but that is because you are still young.

Maybe he's just jelous or doesnt like some of your tricks. Maybe he's trying to get friends that way. Or maybe he hates magic. I suggets you do Healed and Seald and put the soda all over him at lunch time. :wink:
