What Happens When a Magician Floats Wieners in Front of Dogs

When I was a kid, I tried to learn how to do magic from a couple of my dad’s books. Most of it is now gone from my brain, but there’s one thing that always stuck with me: One of the books made the following point very strongly: It’s better to know one way to force a card and a dozen ways to reveal it, rather than the other way around. After all, magic is all about putting on a show. Everyone knows that behind all the flash and patter, it’s trickery and sleight of hand, and that’s why they love it.
