Here we go , i was on some party last night so there was no chick and a was geting bored i tried to show some tricks to some guys i didnt know.
First trick i tried to do , one of the guy busted my false shuffle ( maby i was little bit more drunk than usual ) , '' wait a minute that card is still on top '' man i was so down, maby is that because i did my false little bit slow i dont know , so couldent do on them any trick after that couse they know that card will allways end up on a top ? When i look at my incident it makes me wonder basicli all of my card trick are based on card on the top . do you ever got that problem?

Even if hecklers don't see anything, they will still come up with silly remarks and guesses. Unless your false shuffle was obvious. That's just a matter of practice. Some have said the same thing to me sometimes. When they say it's on the top, I just simply do a DL and it flies right over their head. One thing too, be very casual and do not pay any attention to the deck while doing false cuts or shuffles. Patter and look in their eyes. If you look at the deck, so will they. I find with some tricks, unless you totally screw it up, you can use the little mistakes. If any little mistakes happen to me, I just think of something on the spot and it's resolved.

Learn better controls (culls, passes, and so on), and dont call women chicks.

What's wrong with calling a woman a chick?

They don't appreciate it.

Performing drunk was a silly thing to do.

Getting drunk is just a bad idea. Why do you have a need to get drunk? Is a sober person driving you home? Beware of video cameras, when you've been drinking! Don't pass out around friends - the next thing you know is your picture is on the internet, with you made up like Bozo the clown. lol I won't even get into how you're going to explain to your girlfriend why that busty blonde was in the picture with you.

Magic is difficult enough, without being drunk.

HEcklers can be a shocking, but if you need to re convince the audience heres how i usually do it

When i was doing the trick, i did have to get the card to the top, some idiot yells out "Hey whats that on the top of your deck", so i pretended to be annoyed and when i pushed my hand holding the deck down to my side, and said "Come here and i will show you something" everyone elses attention went on him, i did a quick charlier and kept a break, showed him the card was not on top and then did a quick pass.

no one ever notices the cut.

well most of the times.

Women also don't appreciate a man who is constantly worried about gaining their approval, or not offending them. They like men to have some balls. Don't be so PC. It's not as if there are a lot of chicks on this board.

But judging from his awful spelling, maybe he shouldn't be posting threads while he was drunk.

To the original poster: yeah you shouldn't rely on the same control every time. Use a good control to the bottom (like the spread cull or LePaul's automatic injog control) and shuffle to the top. Or learn some effects that don't require a control to the top, or any control at all. Of course, if somebody busted you on a false shuffle control you need to practice it more so even if you are a little drunk you can do it.

Get Card College. And by all means, stop hanging out with losers that don't know how to get more women to their parties.

Maybe it was a really lame party... we don't like to grace lame parties with our presence :)
