Is is just me, or do coins tend to fall and roll into hard to reach places all the time? Smile

I know exactly how you feel!!!
Everytime I've dropped a coin...
it always rolls under a desk, behind an appliance, through someones legs, outside into the great unknown....
ugh! it's irritating.
DARN COINS! WHY CANT THEY BE SQUARE? LOL.
At least then they wouldn't roll away. Smile

I dropped coins when I'm learning new sleights, and you're right, they always roll to some hard to reach places. There was once I lost a coin and found it one month later... maybe the coin did a vanishing act. Smile

I have about 20 English pennies beside my lazy-boy. I'm always messing with them while the wife and I watch movies. As soon as they have all fallen through the cracks of the chair (most go right through to the floor) I tilt it up, grab them all up, and start all over again.

AND, while I'm in the chair there is absolutely no danger of dropping one on my toe! Smile

I call that move the 'floor vanish'.
I am a master at it!! I was thinking of putting it on video.

I know how you feel...

What would you do if you dropped a coin unique and it rolled under a really hard-to-get-to place???

LOL, I'm not surprised...

Here in the UK they're £40.00 (about $100.00???) a piece so I don't think I'd be dropping it in a hurry...

If I did, well...
Back at the magic...

I dropped a coin and it bounced under cabinet underneath a sink. I can't get to it without taking out some woodwork. I've tried a vacuum hose -- it's just part of the house now...

Why is it that usually the most expensive coins (silver half dollars --> 6 bucks each!!) vanish and not the copper pennies?

Hello everybody, my name is Marduke and I am a coinaholic. It's been 3 hours since my last coin trick. I know I'm getting better everyday. I refuse to go to bed practicing my sleights anymore because it's impossible to find my shiny round fiends in the morning.
(not to mention my girlfriend) I can still hear them calling to me from the deep pockets of my mind. The craving may never go away.

But I have to remember,

I'M THE ONE IN CONTROL.

Thank you all for your kind support.
Live well,
Laugh often,
Love always.

To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

Hi everyone
If anyone is intrested, I keep a radio antenna that I got from radioshack for like .95 cents in my close up case for situations like this, also some sticky tac to put on the end of it. So far I have been able to retrieve almost every coin so far.

I dropped a walking liberty half at a friends house & the thing vanished. It reappeared about a month later in a place we had looked.
