My friend and I were talking on our cell phones (we don't have a need for house phones). He was getting ready to leave his house for a meeting and then he started freaking out cause he couldn't find his phone anywhere, this went on for about five minutes, at first I thought it was a joke, but the he said "man, I'm the biggest idiot in the world"

Woa it sounds like someone I know LOL,we all have idiot moments,& I`m no wxception,when you are really busy & burnt out on the weeks dewlings you can loose things ,I`m glad things slow down sometimes to relax & recharge.having a lot on your mind can make you spacy & not intune to what your doing ,the past months I have been like that with a relationship I have some dificulty with,it has slowed down some ,the other person has issues they are dealing with ,I hope all works out for them,you & I ,faith in yourself & the man upstairs helps

Ever poured yourself a drink and the glass started to move across the counter as if on it's own?

The way the plastic from a packet of cigarettes dances along your arm.
The 11th or 21st cigarette that appears in a empty packet.
A beer matt sticks to your glass.
A spoon moves a quarter of a turn in a dessert pot for no reason.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

The dryer sheet or sock that appears suddenly in your sleeve.
Opening a book to exactly the page you wanted.
You're talking about an old, obscure song, then you turn on the radio and it's playing.
Tossing three 7's in a row in craps, or letting a number bet ride in roulette and actually hitting it.
Making someone laugh so hard that milk shoots out their nose.
Thinking about someone, the phone rings and it's them.
Doing an involved trick, but having their chosen card come up on the first, impossible 'false' reveal, so you can just cut the trick short and take your bow to thunderous applause. (Hey, it happens!)

Oh, and when you lose something, and you are about to look somewhere but you skip it thinking it's not there. After hours, or even days of looking, it's in the place you skipped!
BTW I'm TWELVE YEARS OLD!

But i'm still really good. I do magic for kindergarten at my local elementary school, and everybody in my school loves my tricks.

Please treat me like an ADULT! Thank You! Smile

I have a second story office that faces a busy street, lot's of traffic all day long. Sometimes when I look out the window & the traffic stops, I feel like the building is moving.

One unusual trick that I did years ago was to get an egg to stand on its pointed end. I actually have pictures of it somewhere. NO, I did not do it during a full moon, Solar Eclipse, Solstice or Equinox.

I did it without salt. Just stood the egg on its end and VERY CAREFULLY removed my hands. Did it because of an urban legend or folk tale that said it could only be done during one of the sun's quarterly milestones, such as a solstice or equinox.

Back when they made eight track tapes, I was listening to a Rod Stewart song. I arrived at my work in the middle of the song but turned off the car and left. When I finished work that night, I started up the car and the song resumed. I turned a corner and the eight track tape fell out of the player onto the floor, BUT THE SONG KEPT PLAYING! I was momentarily dazed and confused. The more I realized what was happening the more confused I got, I could feel the hair on the back of my neck standing up. Then I realized that I had ejected the tape when I left the car, and it just happened that the radio station that was on was playing that same song and I had turned on the car at just about the place it was playing on the tape. Just on of those moments I will always remember.

The earth's spin, the position of the moon, the time of the equinox, et.al, have NOTHING to do with (a) standing an egg on end, or (b) which way the water drains from a basin. That's science. Now, what you can CONVINCE people of is quite another thing. There is apparently a good business being done by natives who live near the equator in showing tourists how water drains differently on one side of the equator versus the other, even in places that are actually several miles from the equator.

I found that it can be done at any time. It does take great care to get it to balance properly, but it can be done. Just make sure you don't use an egg with a blemish like a little bump on the pointy end.

As for the water flushing different directions, that reminded me of the Simpsons episode where Bart went to Australia and the American Embassy there had set up a toilet that forced the water to turn in the "American" direction. Absolutely hilarious! Smile

You must find a unseen dimple at that end & the yolk settles to a balanced place it will work ,I expermented last night with several eggs,cool thing to share.
the water swirling is like a gyro which is sort of magical in its simplicity ,the Gyro was & still is a facinating machine to tinker with.the blower wheel in a large walk behind leaf blower my boss purched puzzled him when he tryed to turn it sideways he complained that he had to fight it ,I told him it was the gyro efect like the toy gyros we played with,theres many things to share on this subject ,turning out to be a good thread

Okay... think about it... Smile


It's always in the last place you look because when you've found it, you stop looking. My Dad always used to say that in exasperation, "Why is it always in the last place you look!?" and I could never convince him that this was why.

Why does dropped toast always land buttered side down, though? Is it Mr Murphy at work again?
