Magicians Know There’s A 50% Chance You’ll Pick One Of Four Cards

specific

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.
