Slush Powder doesn't work so well when you grab the cup emptied during previous performance instead of your reset cup!

If you have not messed up you are not performing. I have seen Burton, Copperfield, and numerous others make mistakes. It is how you handle the error that determines how good you really are.


Copperfield's greatest mess up was cutting the tip of his finger off. Blood and all.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

I saw the Masked Magician mess up live on Italian t.v. He tried to get out of it by introducing another card trick, which he messed up as well. Because they didn't understand him, he got out of it. Funny stuff.

My equivocation failed and I had to hand-out the "wrong" lemon for Bill to Lemon. As the spectator cut open the lemon and found it "empty", I had NO idea what to do. Then It came to me. "Oh, I forgot to 'double tap' the lemon", which I then did with the remaining lemon w/ my wand. It fit with a previous ruse I was using with a Cup and Ball presentation, and may have "increased" the magic.
In my "panic", I really just hoped the bill would be in there, somehow. lol
It's not their senses that mislead, it's their assumptions.

There are some very funny stories here, sadly I never messed a trick in a way that is worth mentioning D:
