Danny Doyle, as he Café Motto says, "Magicians helping Magicians", just trying to help those that were unaware that their is Jargon in our industry.

The word "Illusion" is thrown around a lot, on here by new guys. When they enter this portal, they do not know that an Illusion on here means huge trick, usually box tricks, but it uses people as assistant in most cases. So the Café had to include the word Grand to differentiate the meaning of the word.

Out in the real world, they can call the Penny and Dime trick an illusion and it is perfectly okay, but on the Café, it is not considered an illusion, I is a close-up trick or effect. So someone reading their question is confused by their post.

Not all my posts are news flashes, as I don't believe any of them are, I am just trying to help those not in the know.

My posts are just thoughts I start thinking about sometimes and think it would help someone, so I post them. They tell me that the Café now has endless room on the hard drives now.

By my post count you can tell that I don't have as many thoughts as you.

I'm not!

Or maybe I am? Isn't "Bill" magical jargon, as in, "bill change"?

Are all magicians jargon?

(Or just...jargon off?)

Oh, I guess that would be the correct jargon. Smile

This post was actually, because I learned the word Jargon in college, and like the idea of having our own language.


Looks like they would have taught punctuation as well in that college.
Your header should read, Magic has its own Jargon instead of Magic has it's own Jargon. The word "its" in this context should not contain an apostrophe

Please see this site for clarification http://www.its-not-its.info/

I've read a few of your posts and you really should try using spell-check and read over your posts before clicking submit.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

I'm jumping in here without Googling, but I think the example they have here:

"My cat Buster has beautiful blue eyes but a destructive personality." is misleading. At a minimum, I'd say a comma before the "but" is acceptable, and at a maximum, it's necessary.

But what do I know, I'm still aggrieved over the terminating "s" possessive apostrophe thing.

Now I'll go look it up and find out why I'm wrong.

You have more posts in this count-worthy thread alone than your post count status now indicates.

That thread was originally here in the NVMS section. I guess it got moved after the fact, and therefore does not add to my post count. Smile
