Magicians exploit the human mind in a number of ways, say by introducing comedy into their show to reduce the audience’s ability to think critically and as Morgan mentions, even knowing the odds you’ll pick a particular card:
50 per cent of people pick one of these four cards: ace of spades, queen of hearts, ace of hearts and the king of hearts.
I guess for everyone watching the video, that percentage is going to go through the floor.
How about the old “catch a bullet” trick? Well, someone forgot to tell 12 now-dead tricksters not to use an actual live round. No amount of jokes will save you from that.
Morgan has a bunch more facts and tidbits about magic (26 to be precise), so hit up the video to hear them all.
