This idea just randomly popped into my head earlier this morning...

I remember seeing a coin sold in magic/joke shops that had a nail on one side of it and after sticking a coin to your head you would switch it for that one to make it seem like it was nailed in.

Well, I haven't had luck finding the product but you can easily hot glue a long enough nail (to do the blockhead) to the back of a coin and do the same thing. First stick a regular coin (dup.) on your head, then other random parts of your face. Secretly switch it out for the one with the nail on it and pretend to stick it just below your nose, but in reality you're sticking the nail in. Pull it out and show the nail.

Or you could do the original stuck on head, show the nail and then proceed to prove that it was actually nailed into your head by nailing it into another part of your face (nose of course).

What are your thoughts?

Have used the Blockhead idea incorporated into a magic trick before.
Card chosen,returned,located, palmed out>>>>turn away from speckie,shove nail through the card and stick in your head,,face speckie,pull card plus nail with it,and dump it in their hands,,,,got a reasonable surprise reaction but seemed to defeat the object of the real Blockhead effect,,, so I binned it.

I have welded a quarter (that's a 25 cent piece to you Brits) to a masonry nail. Find a small crack in the sidewalk, hammer the piece in, sit back and watch the fun! Works better than using crazy glue (which is nice to glue a dollar to the sidewalk).

BTW, you can readily solder a roofing nail to a nickle. Just use flux.
