Miscellaneous June 26, 2019

Having followed the steps outlined in my previous post, entitled Magic Trick: Mind Reading, it’s now time to reveal the magic!

That’s silly. There’s no such thing as Elephants in Denmark!

So much fun – have a good time with this magic trick, and thanks for visiting!

Magic Trick: Mind Reading

Miscellaneous June 25, 2019

This is a fun trick you can use to amaze family & friends, who’ll be left scratching their heads, wondering – how did he know that? It works the same for one or more people at once, but you must be very clear in providing the proper instructions.

Note: I’ll post the answer tomorrow, so, if you’d like, you can play along today!

I have a trick I’d like to show you. It requires that you do some math, and you’re welcome to use a calculator if you’d like – but, it isn’t necessary.

Pick a number from 1-100 and don’t tell me. Keep it secret, and let me know when you’ve selected a number.

Ok. Multiply that number by 9…

Is your answer 2 or more digits long, yes or no?

If they say, “no”, then continue to The Next Step – see below.

If they say “yes”, then you say –

Ok. Now, add the digits together. For example, if your answer was 123, then add the “1” plus the “2” plus the “3” together to get a new number of “6”.

Next, rephrase the same question –

Is this new number still 2 or more digits long?

If so, have them add the digits together again & ask once more.

This time, they’ll answer “no” – continue to The Next Step.

The Next Step

Next, I’d like you to subtract 5 from your number…

Now I’d like you to assign your answer to its corresponding letter in the alphabet; for example, 1 = A, 2 = B, 3 = C, and so on. Let me know when you’ve done this.

Ok. Think of the name of a country in the north that begins with that letter. Let me know when you’re ready to continue.

Next, move one letter further into the alphabet, and think of the name of a very large land animal beginning with that letter.

Conclusion

I’ll provide the answer…tomorrow. See you then!

Cadex-2 by Giant

Bike Riding Ann Arbor

Miscellaneous October 2, 2016

With temperatures warming to 68 degrees fahrenheit, the weather was perfect for a Sunday afternoon bike ride from Ann Arbor to Dexter, Michigan, and back again. With a full bottle of water, sunglasses and a camera, I was on the road and ready to begin the 22 mile trek!

My bike is a 56 cm Cadex-2 by Giant with a carbon fiber frame, 14 speeds and a recently replaced front wheel and tire. Very light, and fast. This 2016 season marks my fifth year biking and my fourth year riding this bike, originally purchased on craigslist.

Below is a map of my bike route (see red line). My starting and finishing point is the same, in Ann Arbor, shown here in the lower-right corner. The intersection of Huron River Drive & Mast Road, in Dexter (upper-left corner), is where I turn around to return.
