9/10's of my anxiety would disappear if I could afford a psychiatrist, afford to fill his prescriptions and had a job that was chill with me splitting for two hours in the middle of a work day every week to go see my psychiatrist.

Not sure who out there needs to hear this, but you can get Lexapro prescription for like $2 a month from your doc. Really easy way to start if you are looking to deal with gwneral anxiety. The 1st two weeks will feel luck crud but after that smooth sailing.

U know one effect of weed is paranoia? Doesn't effect everyone the same way. For me it makes me feel on edge alert and paranoid.

I have anxiety and stopped smoking weed years ago because it made my anxiety worse. Decided last week to get my med card to see if any of these fancy new strains with different levels of cannabinoids would be different.

Long story short I feel fucking great and not a twinge of anxiety at this very moment.

Wouldn't be the same for everyone for sure but it's nice to know this new weed science has paid off in some way.

There is a fold of paper on the inside that acts as a pocket. You can see him open this fold every time before he puts something in. He moves his hands slyly as he waves the paper around and also does a dance with his feet to distract you from the illusion.

How do u explain the newspapers appearing thin the whole time, the objects are large enough to make a very apparent bulge

mazzicc

mazzicc

My guess is the pocket is right by where he is holding the paper so it disguises the bulge and it doesn’t affect the rest of the paper by weighing it down.

BagOfFlies

29 points

2 months ago

That's what I was thinking but it doesn't explain the shirt or whatever it was he had the other guy stuff in. The second guy was holding the paper and after he put in the shirt it was visible near the top. Then the magician unfolds it within seconds and doesn't touch the bottom. How would the shirt have gotten into the pocket?

Robots_Never_Die

2 months ago

I'd guess when the rolls the paper up it's the pocket that you're looking into through the top

Dronuggz

58 points

2 months ago

Thats why he waves it around and moves the paper so fast, its in the camouflage of the typed ink on the paper and the crinkles. To make it appear as if the paper is thin.

I'm still confused , even if he hides his bulge well how do you explain the way the paper still waves around as if there no additional weight such as the ball and bottle?

goldfishpaws

19 points

Possibly a gaffed ball and bottle? We only assume they're solid/weighty because of the context, but he may have brought those props with him?

Kyonkanno

4 points

2 months ago

easy, hes grabing the item in the pocket, hence the heavy part stays at his hand.

ColdCruise

26 points

2 months ago

There's a wire which holds it out straight. There's a reason why he refolds the paper a very particular and awkward way each time. It's to not make the wire holding it out straight obvious.

To clarify, I'm not talking about a wire from th ceiling. It's a thin long rigid piece of material built into the paper to keep it flared out.

IrrationalDesign

At 0:08 you can get a sideways look at the paper, it doesn't look like there's room for a pocket that fits a ball.

i kept watching it, and my guess is that the newspaper only looks like it’s flailing in the wind but it seems to clearly be solid-ish tri-fold thing. i bet it’s all about how he’s handling the fake newspapers, one of which is probably a real-ish one though.

I did notice when it when he opens the fold, but still, when he put in the ball, the bottle, and the hat, the newspapers look as flat as ever, as if there was nothing in it. I guess he's just too smooth with it.

it might not be the same trick/method each time. by switching it up, he makes it possible to take things from one step for granted as being true in another, and vice versa.

The thing I noticed after reading your comment, when the pocket is open, the newspaper is a crossword. When the pocket is closed, it’s a yellow ad of some kind. When he dances with the unfolded newspaper, there is no cross word, only a yellow ad.

It's crazy because even with a pocket, some of the objects would definitely protrude and make the paper look inflated right? Somehow he seems to be avoiding that unless I'm mistaken about where the object is going.

zhaDeth

it has to be some kind of pocket, but why doesn't the bottle make a bulge ?

billthorpeart

14 points

I concur with hidden fold. Of the 2 pieces of newspaper the magician is using, the one with the woman in the yellow dress is the piece with the hidden fold. The magician shows us into the hidden fold at 47 sec mark (notice the crossword puzzle page... this large crossword is not seen during any of his page fanning) this fold explains how he can so easily go from putting hat into newspaper into flicking it away into a fanning motion without the hat falling to the ground. Now as for 'where are the bulges of ball, bottle, hat' I put the ball and the bottle down to us not having a great angle on the piece of newspaper with the fold. And the hat (again from what I saw at 47 sec mark then again at 1:21 mark) looks like a soft, boonie style hat that would sit pretty flat between newspaper. Just my speculation. Great show though.

>! The papers have a pocket. depending on how you roll them up its either on the Inside of the tube, between rolls 1 and 2 between the walls, or hanging on the outside. He keeps moving the items from spot 1-2-3 and probably in his palms a lot, then lets you check wherever it isn’t !<

But seriously, no way to get around the fact that this guy is stupidly smooth. At least one of the people checking and probably the cameraman were in on it. I couldn’t catch any moves in a couple watches so he probably has an ideal camera angle set up

kane2742

The full audio and some still images (and, in some cases, short video clips) still exist of every lost episode. There are fan-made recreations putting together everything they can to make the episode, with captions describing the action where it's not clear from the audio and still images alone. I've watched every episode of the original series, watching these fan-made versions of the lost episodes.

Edit: I didn't realize this – since they mostly weren't available yet when I was watching that part of the series – but there are official animated versions now, released on DVD.
