Default Stupidity?

Having done this effect for years now, I see no excuse for this 'fail' to happen. There are a number of ways to perform this effect with a couple of the methods being 100% safe- yes, there are ways to do this one safely.

A spectator should never be put in a position such as the show host was placed. The magician can risk getting a nail in his hand if he desires but it is foolishness to allow a spectator to risk being hurt.

What do you think?

Harold!

Long time no see!

Having done this trick (wrong) a couple times myself... I couldn't agree more. There is no excuse to put a spectator at risk or even pretend to. Anything can happen and if it does it should be the magi who takes the risk not an innocent bystander. Just my two cents.

How have you been? I have been very busy with shows in Nebraska.

Have you tried this effect using a raw egg? I am considering doing this in a couple of upcoming shows. I haven't decided on a method yet. Any ideas?

Lyle,

It has been a while.

I still check in and try to start conversations but it still is slow. Any new projects?
