Howdy fellas!

I learned not too long ago how to perform the human blockhead stunt. so far I'm up to a nail but I'd like, well, something more impressive.

any tips for making this a better act?

when ever I see the old pros do it they are using rather thick nails and hammering them in, I don't even need a hammer to get the nail in!

any suggestions would be great!

Whenever you see old pros doing it THEY DON'T NEED THE HAMMER OR SHOE TO NAIL IT IN EITHER.

It is called showmanship. Take the nail, stick it in, and no big deal.

HAMMER it in and it looks like a big deal. If you want something mroe impressive try a bigger nail.

No one needs a hammer to get the nail in Steve, It's strictly for show, please do not try to litterally hammer the nail in.

I think when the old guys take their shoe off and hammer in the nail... that is pretty much 90% of the shock value.

Still, nothing beats the geek magic demo where the handle of his reading glasses go right up the nose and get cleaned via the mouth.

It isn't geek magic...if Slim were here today he'd give you a through talking too!

Things like that are stunts and are dangerous. Not tricks.
