As the very happy owner of a new set of Fakini balls, I had to issue this warning to others before it was too late: If you practice in front of the bathroom mirror, make sure the commode seat is down!

My son did it with our Tivo remote. He went in with the remote in his hands without realizing it, so he tucked it under his chin for obvious reasons and...

First rule of manipulation practice, if it can fall into or under something you don't want it to, it will.

I dropped a Fakini Eyeball tonight before the show and it hit the ground and bounced sideways under a large Mobile Attic storage pod. Got it back, but with only about 6" clearance under it, it wasn't easy.

The inportant thing is to make sure it is your Fakini you are retreaving out of the comode and not . . . well you know!

Along the same lines, don't practice the appearing cane under a ceiling fan that is running.

Ha-ha!!!

I was 15 when I got my first appearing cane (metal). The magic shop owner told me to wait until I got home before trying to practice it. Instead, I accidentally opened it while in the back seat as my mom was driving us back home. I'm not sure if the first dent in the cane was from it smacking the window, or my mom smacking me.

Is that an appearing cane, or are you just happy to see me? Come on, some one had to say it

When I got my first metal appearing cane I spent the first day closing it with the palm of my hand over the open end. It worked, but after a couple hours my palm was getting itchy, then red, then it started bleeding from all these find little circular cuts in my palm. I have a lot more respect for the cane now.
