    Real, fake or simply good magic tricks?

    I don't know about you guys, but this shit freaked me out! especially the second video the Chinese guy playing with dough.

    I love great magic. I don't know if I would go so far as to invoke demons as an explanation, but I have seen some magic that would clearly seem physically impossible.

    Great links.

    you can see some of the audience freak out as they see this stuff. I mean physically its impossible to do some of these things. its one thing to make an air plain disappear by using mirrors but this stuff they make the audience participate. unless there are camera tricks I don't see how humans can have these kind of powers.

    I think the audience are in on it. Heck, we've seen some pretty darn realistic alien videos. Still, very entertaining.

    The best show I ever saw was when I was in Vegas and saw David Coperfield and was pretty close to the stage. It was great, most of the tricks 1/2 though I had them figured out only to be 100% wrong by the end.

    The first video with the guy sticking needles and such through his arm, hand and I have seen the cheek are real.

    All the magic sticks are just that, tricks but good entertainment.

    The audience is in on the trick. Still though some of those illusions are amazing. Like Blaine's ice pick through the hand.

    One thing with David Blaine is he does tricks so good that when he actually does something for real, we all think it's a really good trick.

    But that needle through the arm and icepick in the hand, he uses rubber cement to do both.
