Just sold/shipped my U3F to a magician in India. Learned (was told) that FEDEX does not allow the shipping of coins. A bit surpirsed because I get most of my stuff this way. Maybe because it was overseas, or maybe the agent was misinformed...she did pull out a rule book! After three magic tricks was I was able to convince here that they were "novelty" items valued at several hundred dollars. Live and Learn.

John, it's not that FedEx rules forbid the sending of money that way. It's a Customs issue. US and Indian. FedEx (and other carriers) would rather not deal with it because it can be delayed - just about forever! - and you will be yelling at FedEx for any Customs delays.

Thanks Jim. He paid for express shipping, so hopefully it won't get tied up!

One person who posts here regularly (lately) told me he will only use Fed-ex to get his coins shipped to India because the customs people over there steal a lot from regular mail.

Coincidentally I purchased U3F from @John McLaughlin and I am now waiting for it to arrive. (Thanks a lot Sir for your help) and I also mentioned to @Poof-Daddy in a thread that its not a good idea to ship to India via normal post. Smile

The customs people here in the U.S. also steal items that come in from overseas. A coffee mug I purchased on eBay from a fellow in Great Britain never made it here to the states. A coffee mug for God's sake!

Weird! I finally found a YouTube video of Bob Kohler performing his U3F in December and now it's been pulled. That's a crime - I wonder who pulled it?

the video was here: http://youtu.be/nso32B8cxIA and I found the link in this thread: http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......m=202&16 about halfway down the page.

The person could have deleted it himself, or Kohler could have had it pulled - I would imagine it was within his right to do so.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Eric Mead's performance above is the best I've seen. Better than Kohler's, in my opinion. Nice and slow, and he really sells the moments that make this such a great effect.

Here's another video of U3F: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fck9zlPYb_U

The trick to keep the video live on YouTube is to NOT name it U3F Smile
(Hope Bob Kohler don't see this link...)
