It's a thread (T) that is invisible (I)

Search for the full words in the Penguin Store and you should find it.

If you see them coming, grab the the dollar and wait for them to be saeated again. State that any further atempts to get that close will result in a walk away, most people will restrain. You should do it to strangers though, less cocky unless young males showing off to freinds/girlfreinsd, then watch out!

Freak: *swipes hand and breaks IT*
Me: Oops, sorry guys, this guy just broke my train of thought on *whatever im floating*.
Freak: There was something solid there!
Me: Ya, thats how strong my train of thought is.

This actually worked for me the few times that peeple actually swiped at the IT. The IT is still invisible, so they cant see it and i have called it something else, and it isnt there anymore, so that is what it is.

well... thats the nature of humans... they want to know how things work and they feel special when they ruin the illusion. I dont know why but that what they do... I showed some things to my clasmates too and they maybe a little gelous of what u can do so they reveal the secret so ud be a normal mortal man too ;) hope that made sense

when using IT its better to be distant from ur specs. one more is to suddenly perform something with the IT and get it done quickly without giving the specs to do anything to ruin the magical moment. although its hard to do it but its worth the practice.

I don't use an ITR, Instead I use loops. It eliminates a lot of the risk. I don't levitate as much as I do move things, but when they go to grab it, there's nothing there but what I was moving. In fact, I encourage people to grab it. It makes it more real.

i dont have much exp with IT or loops. but ur way seems to be the solution to the grabbing problem.

I had a guy BEFORE I even perfromed the trick tell me hey you have a long hair hanging and pulled it out.I told him if he touched me again hed have to by me dinner for being so close.I just went to the washroom and setup again. I always keep specs back and try to wear darker colors when I know Im going out to perform :lol:


This made me think of something. I don't know if this happened to you, but alot of people get invisible thread sent to them and they think it's ready to use. Most invisible thread that comes rolled up or on a spindle (not loops, or thread reels, etc.) comes "un-stripped". This means that there are approximately 50 strands of IT in that single strand of string.

Your post reminded me of this becuase when I started using IT I didn't know about stripping the thread. I tried to use it un-stripped and people told me I had a hair on my shirt. Just a note 8)
