The backwards and forwards alphabet feat is called "TAELPBAH" and is found in "Mathematical Wizardry".

Right. Except that the title is: TAELBPAH. See if you can figure out why that's important. Hint: tAeLbPaH.

When I do kids shows I get a good reaction from the parents by doing the alphabet backwards. The kids just look at me and tell me I've got it wrong. You can't win.

You may even find a method for learning to "do" the alphabet backwards and forwaqrds AT THE SAME TIME instantly - in one of my books. I also sure would like to see how you would remember, say, a 30-digit number, or a 50-digit number, or pi to the 5000th place - yes, I said 5000th - as some of my students do) by remembering them "as simply numbers." I'd love to learn that. HL.

Hello Mr. Lorayne.I am a big fan.However,I did learn the Alphabet...forwards and backwards at the same time on my own. Smile
In fact,one of my routines invloves completing a MS on a see through dry erase board in mirror image[the guests of course see the #'s correctly]...while at the same time reciting the alphabet forwards and backwards
at the same time.[multi-tasking]I do this as part of my 'train your brain' premise.[especially geared toward modern day videophiles...or as I like to call them 'vidiots' Smile].

Yes we might as well use the same criteria for the word ALPHABET as we do for the entire alphabet 'forwards and backwards at the same time'...'IN ORDER'. Smile

Hello all Magic Square aficianado's.

I am going to open a new thread at the 'Inner Thoughts' forum.I will provide a link to a great BD magic square. It is 'easy peasy' to do, and much too good to relegate to an open forum.

If you do not already know this check it out.
