An envelope is placed on the table in full view before the effect begins, it remains in view the entire time and is not secretly switched.

A double sheet is chosen at random from an UNGIMMICKED borrowed newspaper. A spectator (no stooge)comes up with a small random number. NO force, the number is freely chosen in a random way. He doesn't tell the magician the number he has in mind yet. The magician rips the newspaper into many random pieces and forms them into a small stack and places it on the table in front of the spectator. The magician never touches the stack again. For the first time the spectator reveals the number he has chosen. Say the number the person has in mind in 9. The spectator (not the magician)counts down to the ninth piece from the top giving him a random piece of paper.

Lets recap. A sheet chosen at random,and torn into many random pieces. A random number (no force) is used to count down into the stack by the spectator.

The paper has two sides with print on BOTH SIDES, he is asked to choose either side to read..no magicians force, either side can be read from the random piece.

He is too far away for the magician to even read what is on the paper. The envelope is opened and a single business card is dumped out and the envelope is seen to be otherwise empty. The magician doesn't touch the business card once it falls on the table.

Only after the business card is on the table and IN FULL view does the spectator read aloud from the chosen side. Believe it or not many of the same words he just read (big words not small words like: they, as, etc)are written on the business card!

Spectator is asked to flip his piece of paper and see if any of the words on the business card appear on the back. Not a single word.

EVERYTHING can be left for examination. No sleights, no switches of predictions. No force of number. Paper is torn into pieces BEFORE the number is revealed. No gimmicked newspaper or duplicate slips. No secret writing of any kind. Can be done totally surrounded with NOTHING ever hidden in the hands. Newspaper can be borrowed.

Looks like I'll be shelling out the dough for this one. When's it going to be released and at what price? Thanks.

Sounds good. On another note.... When are you going to pick up the time barrier?
Sometimes it seems there are more than one of me.

Out before the end of the month. Wrapping it up now. Priced TOO low for this at $19.95. I'm trying to keep great magic affordable. Too many people are out to make a fast buck with $30 DVD that describes one trick or $40 for a book with 3 so-so effects in it. I am hoping this will be in the same category as my Blindsight trick. I'm trying to keep most of my new releases in the 19.95 to 29.00 range so the average magician can afford them.

Foresight is still coming this year. However there is quite a bit of expense in making this trick up and I have to find the right company to make the gimmick I need.
It will come out this year and will be worth the wait.

Random Thoughts can be performed with ANY newspaper in any language. There is no trick to the newspaper. You can use any borrowed paper and do it. Take the borrowed paper, make your predictions put them in the envelope and you are set to go.

Someone asked me in a PM if there was any pre-show or instant stooges. No...do this with anyone, even in their home using their newspaper. No preshow work of any kind. NOTHING is written down at anytime (outside of your intial predictions).
