Could someone please send me the link to the look alike "google" site that predicts the card? I deleted my link by accident! (oops!) Thanks a million!

Oh so that's how it's done, thanks. I could never figure out how they did this lol

It does not seem to work for me. When I type in /4c/, it just appears /4c/ instead of What.

Help please!

Go to the image search, google changed thier coding, the web search no longer works, but the image search does, and I think it's cooler anyways!
Message: Posted by: frenchmagi (Jul 28, 2006 12:25PM)
Me as well. Even when I do an image search, I still just get /4c/

It works for me.

Did you go to the link given above, then click images, then type the card name?

If you type something then change to google images, it won't work.

In the google images portion I've found that on occasion I also have the same problem as described above (showing exactly what you're typing) I've found that if I wait a moment before typing it gives the page time to catch up with me and it eliminates the problem.

It works for me know. You can't cut and paste that's all. Man, the reactions I'm getting with this are amazing. What a jewel.

WOW, great site

Oh yeah.... This is sweet. I bookmarked the page to the images link. In the world of wireless, this is a must have link in your favorites. Talk about a trick you can do at anytime (you have a hotspot).

It's a great follow up to the invisible deck too!

I've blown quite a few people out of the water with this..including my brother, who programs computers for a living.

He was just DUMBFOUNDED!

Unfortunately, when I wouldn't tell him how to do it, he Googled the subject himself and found the site.

Wow, having great fun with this.
It's permanently on my Toolbar.

I also like to scroll down quite soon as this hides the "chosen card" in the search box.

I actually think that sometimes letting them see their card in the search box can make it stronger, afterall, they watched you very clearly type in "What card is it?" or some variation thereof.

I guess it depends on the type of person you show it to.
So far I've only used it on computery (nice word) people who I feel would realise that there must be some programming involved for the two things to change.
Maybe that's just me 'running without being chased', I'll try it the other way soon.

Best, Mike

I remember this one.
Pretty cool.
But some people say that some trickery is done in the computer.
Message: Posted by: Greg V (Oct 6, 2006 03:23PM)
I tried this out, and when I typed "What is it?" in the images search, I just got redirected to the real Google images website. What did I do wrong?
Message: Posted by: Trestkon (Oct 10, 2006 10:35AM)
You didn't do anything wrong. The idea is that you secretly tell it a card (ex: /7s/) and then it searches google images for 'seven of spades'.
Message: Posted by: Jeremy L. (Oct 10, 2006 06:18PM)
You can type anything in to the search engine not just a card as long as you have / /. You can also change the web adress when performing if you can set up the window without people watching.

THis is awesome! I found this a while ago and I perform it at work all the time. Over and Over again. People are completely fooled by it. Everyone sees that google screen and assume that hey google wouldn't help by doing some trickery!

Thanks so much for this link. I just performed it with them thinking of a famous person they admire + Center Tear = Best reactions I've experienced in some time. Awesome stuff.
