David Blaine's "Fly Resurrection":

I know how to do it but HOW DO YOU CATCH THE FLIES?

What I think is...
Those por little insects live just one or two days...
Do I have the rights to waste have of their lives making them suffer?
just a thought.

Raise 'em. Start your own maggot farm (your mom will be pleased) then you will have an abundant, readily available supply of flies as the need arises.

Or you could just sneak up on one really slow and quiet then grab it really quick...and try not to squeeze too tight!

Of course, you might also ask yourself if it is worth doing, especially since it has been exposed on national television.

Use honey instead of vinegar.

Just grab them out of the air as they fly by. Or if you are really slow of hand, just wait for them to land.

A long time ago, a Professional Boxer taught me to Jab at the air, and not telegraph a move. I don't catch many in the air anymore, but if they land, they are mine. I catch them release them outside. My wife has quit asking; did you catch it? I rarely miss.

But maybe I should start selling them, yes, that's the ticket; "Frozen Flies" to Go!

If you pull the wings off a fly, do you then call it a "walk"?

If you pull the wings and legs off it would not matter what you call it as it would not come to you any way

wait till it is on the window, use a glass and a playing card. Trap it with the glass, slide the playing card between the 2.
