And 7 to denounce that changing a light bulb this way was :

a) exposing a secret
b) must be credited to Tom the Amazing Edison, who was the first who changed a light bulb anyway.

1 to say that he has a booking next Tuesday to light up the Golden Gate Bridge for 300,000 spectators and, since he has always been more into cards than lightbulbs, could someone suggest a few simple effects that he could master by then.

1 post describing 10 new methods for changing a lightbulb

5 posts condemning the guy for exposing methods in an open forum

1 post from an entrepeneurial member alleging that the 10 new methods were stolen from his new e-book (available to Café members for $30 via PayPal)

1 post from Max Maven on the history of each of the 10 "new methods," including detailed references to late 19th/early 20th century monograms and patent documents

1 post like this from someone with way too much time on his hands!
:goof:

Have you all (northern hemisphere), planted your daffodil bulbs, crocus, hyacinth, tulips, by the way?

(then of course you get the eccentric replies from people like me).

And finally
1 magic-cafe moderator who deletes the topic because writing about changing light blubs is against the forum rules! ;-)

Watch out for an amazing new light bulb change I'm tipping in my forthcoming E-Book, "Brilliant Minds".

Let me whet your appetite.

Effect
A light bulb is seen to be working and suddenly goes.
The magician removes the old bulb, takes a new one from it's carton and plugs it in. It lights.

This is the bit that will confound those 'in the know':
No threads
No pulls
No rough and smooth, short or long
No magnets
No additional gimmicks
No sleights
No switches
(oops, disregard that last one )

It happens exactly as it reads.
Magic that happens in the hands.
We're having a laugh!

563 members who saw david blane perform it on tv and want to do the same effect (although it was an camera-trick)

15261 magicians who write hate-posts against the "masked-magician" who shows on tv how changing a lightblub works!
