Cool!!! He got mine 2 out of 2 time.

Guessing what he does is he gives a little more "face time" to a particular card when flicking thru the deck, resulting in that card being chosen by most people. I think I even detected this the second time I played the clip. =D>

I think your right, Wally. It looks like he pauses for a just a moment at the card he's expecting you to pick.

If you pause the video, then use the <| and |> buttons you can step through frame by frame. It looks like he has several 4 of diamonds stacked in a row at the very end of the deck.

Or several of whichever card. It's a different card every time. It's always the last one, and he definitely pauses. He even says he wants us to look at one card. Then he shows us one card. :D

:o Did you see the Levitation video? It's on the next page. It's really cool and freaky.

Oh, okay. I did it twice and it was the 4 of D both times. Must have just been a glitch. Thanks.

Oh wait, duh. It was me. I replayed the same QuickTime video twice.

Slowly stepping, I see several copies in a row of the same card, the card he picks at the end. If there is a skill demonstrated, it is the skill of making you assume it is a fair deck.

That's okay. Have a look what I did in the Banned thread. It will make you feel better. :)
