A simple idea powers the Fool 100. First, they say there's a possible method that used a hero mark and careful manipulation of the volunteer, but that's not how he did it.

And the last guy to read certainly looks like he is reading from the bottom of the note. And as he's going through, he ends up with only three cards at the end, so he quickly tears them in half so he can count of six cards. Why oh why did it not get picked up for another season???

I think he must have 2 pieces of paper one saying 'Teller wins' and one saying 'Penn wins' and just use the one that is correct. Knowing that nobody else will have the number makes it easy. Six letters in the word. It's even simpler than that. The card magic was a pair of fairly obvious forces -- the second one is harder than the first one and has different options depending on the chosen number.
But when he's counting the cards - he's counting quite rapidly and putting down the cards as he goes, but I think the count and the number of cards don't sync up. Teller kind of eluded to this by saying he guessed the end of the trick when he ran out with the flag. That would be a different reason rather than masking an adhesive strip or guide. It doesn't change the part I mention, but gives better seal for retaining the helium. I enjoyed the quick change routine.
Some good magic in this one. Finally, he swallows a fairly long piece of thread. I'm not quite sure I understood what was going on there. The trick may have had multiple outs, and this one just worked out well. Then I noticed the card being hidden after it was taken of the mouth. I guess I was anticipating someone checking, like looking over his shoulder in the seats.
But its definitely going back and watching it again and trying to solve it. He seems to be genuinely delighted and amazed with the trick. Both balloons are bouncing around, and they leave the ground long enough to show there's no one behind them. The mask was good enough I didn't catch on. It seems it's confirmed that each card had 3 messages with fill your name here blanks. At the very least stop using decks with backs that are available at your local magic shop and not available at your local place that sells ordinary decks of cards! But the woman sent each man to a table after they already had their envelopes, so even if he knows which meal is in which envelope, it doesn't really help him. When he picks up the spool, the prepared packet of threaded needles is secreted in the center hole, and he loads it into his mouth as he appears to put the plain thread in.
Teller selects someone from the audience to witness up close, and Penn parks his ass for the rest of the show. Forgot to mention, Farquhar used another deck switch to force the card on Penn to start with. At the fair, they performed seperately, Penn doing a comedy juggling act with knives and torches while wearing a leather apron, and Teller doing a silent magic act. It seemed that Penn was annoyed that the magicians made a move that clearly looked like deck-switching, but that was denied. Each time he counts that off and demonstrates the trick, very polished. It's hard to make this into good tv. That last trick with the silhouette cards.
A magic competition series hosted by Alyson Hannigan, showcases talented magicians performing their acts for comedic illusionists Penn Jillette and Teller. Clearly the card is inserted into a deck in a box through the bottom flap to get it in position. Hi all , Im new here. The segment with Farquhar is one of my favorites of the series. . I reckon I'm not far off with this one, the longer gap from 1st to 2nd won't matter at all as you will then be certain which the first one was and reduce the amount or uncertainty you are dealing with.
Ha ha, it's a Joker. Penn counts to three, the lights go out, there's a flash, the lights come on, and the bag of helium is floating upwards while Teller somehow got out of the bag without losing the helium. I'm finally catching up with this series, and caught this episode tonight. That's the only way to get it back in the deck in the right place. I can't tell for sure because the camera angle cuts several times during it, but it appears he knows he has to get to the 16th-20th card and 41st-44th card and just has to double up some cards or count faster than he's putting them down to ensure that by the time he's at the right card the numbers he's counting down sync up. He fills the bag, fills the bag some more. None of the numbers in the bowl including 408 matched anyone's number from the audience.
