One example of where I imagine it could be fit in is perhaps in a more 'exotic' mental act (the old kind with turban etc). Those old shamans etc could probably be believable with a mix of fakir and mentalism. But as Kuffs points out - surely many think of "body control" as a mental feat.

Well, I can't give out just yet how I plan to use it but it works for me.

Now is the nail into the nose the same as the nail into the head??? I was thinking the nail was hammered INTO the head. Is it the same thing Ian was talking about hammering it up your nostril?

I will say also about visual mentalism that, no-fail, the biggest reactions and the things people remember the most are the visual things or the things that happen inside a spectators pocket, hands, etc. Those things have the biggest reactions.

Yes, Jonathan the nail in the nostril is the same idea...but from a spectator point of wiew, it is more impressive to thinks that the nail ( at least in publicity ) that you are hammering a nail into your head...

So that's why some performers call it " the human block head "

And also it helps to convince them that this stunt is not for everyone to try at home...

Most think you have prepared your body for doing it in some way...this way you eliminate all those guys who want to try at home and realise that is not so difficult...

Humbly...
