Hi guys

I was wondering how complete (if you know what I mean!) the Swami/Mantra explanation of the above stunt is? I know a lot of the stuff in there is not quite right, close, but just far enough off to cause injury if taken as read!

Cheers

Swami mantra scares me. It seems like most of it is based on theory and not expertise.

David,

I'll see if I can dig the book out and read it over that section to make sure if it's the complete explanation or not. I should be able to get it out of the box that it's hiding in for ya tomorrow.

Cheers,
-Matt (TK)

PS- Sorry for the delay, normally it wouldn't be in a box but I'm slowly packing up to move to a new house.

I asked the same thing in another thread. I got no response. Hopefully we will in this thread. I tried to get the kernel in their as the book says, but could not do it. Smile

Hi, I have performed that stunt on many TV shows including Howard Stern, Tom Green, etc. If you are curious about doing the stunt PM me and I will give you some great ideas on the handling of it. When done properly it can be a very strong effect, it has made me a lot of money so far.

Prakash used to do and sell the silver rods in the eye`s, I have done it many times as a close up stunt it looks good on TV, but for general performance is just not visible enough.

Slightly off topic--is milk and/or smoke out the eye a learned skill, or is it a born ability?

It`s eye to eye to mouth ala silver foil effect. The bars are highly polished and can be hidden / produced from the tear duct.
Not pure sideshow but a mixture of manipulation and the ability to overcome the fear of placing things in the duct.

Good close up and a specky pleaser.
The born ability to lie and entertain essential.

No. It's not the same thing as milk or smoke.

But how about with the smoke and milk--born with or learned?
