Just thought I'd tell a funny story and see if anyone has had any similar experiences.

Whenever I receive mail I am always careful to shred the envelope with my name and address details (in the days of ID theft, this is the recommmended practice). However, one day I went to shred my pile of letters only to find the shredder wasn't working. I therefore decided to destroy the envelopes by hand and tore each one up indivdually.

...After finshing the pile I looked down a noticed something quite strange...I'd actually performed 8 perfect CTs! My Address remaining intact for any fraudster to steal a "peek".

Anyone done something similar or another story?

I did one time but shame on me LOL
a few years ago I tried to call my wife on the phone.
sometimes, I think you experienced this too and it ´s hard for me to explain in english Smile , sometimes they hit a button by accident in the same moment you call and you can hear what happens arround them.
normaly I stop the call when this happens, but it was veryinteressting to
hear my wife speaking to her girlfriends in the Café Smile
I picked up some information, don´t worry, nothing special than I stoped the call.
I called again and told my wife that I had an out of body experience and was there
in the Café with her and her girlfriends.
at first she laughed and asked if I had too much wine the day before but than I started to tell her some details of there chat and believe me it was very quiet on the phone for a little longer time LOL

hope you understood everything I tried to tell you

Heh heh heh. Mario, this happened to me when I was handling contract negotiations between AT&T and my then-employer. I listened to two AT&T reps talk about how they were going to "take (us) to the cleaners" (i.e. - cheat us) and was able to use that to my severe advantage later.

Oh, if only I had been into mentalism way back then!!

I was learning a method for a simplified version of out of this world with 8 cards. I misunderstood the method, but just by luck (or perhaps something more...) I get the colors separated 3 times!
I didn't understand how the method could work...then I understood I was doing it wrong but that I was been able to separate the colors by intuition 3 times.

I was looking to a pencil in a table a then the pencil started to move (I supose for the inclination of the table).That happened two times.

More than a year ago I was watching a TV programme when a fellow magician called them up whom I recognized by his voice. He mentioned his and his girlfriend's zodiac sign. A few weeks later I met him in a convention and when the subject was about mentalism I asked him to concentrate on his zodiac sign. I read his mind. Then I asked him to think of his girlfriend. I read his mind again. He was astounded. Smile
