After reading this thread, I am sad for the state of magic. There are some real clueless idiots here.

How is it well worth it? You just explained one of the greatest sleights in card magic... just to make a dollar? You're a disgrace to all magicians.

Mer, I'm never gonna do it again after reading this thread. But he was real terrible at it.

Also how is this different from selling tricks like penguin does?

The reasons why that's different could fill books, and probably already do.

You can browse these pages and find some reasons why magic shops are different than you selling an effect to a friend for a buck.

Why should we give him a break? He deserved worse.

And why chime in after so long, and addressing your comment to one specific person? When many others said the same thing, if not worse... :roll:

First off in almost every magic book it says a magician nvr reveals thier secrets and plus we as magicians pay money for those trick and to have them exposed waste our money and the effect is known so its not a suprise I sugest you read adjones topic about exposure under the essays forum.
