The thing about magic

We've all seen magic tricks. I even practice magic for a couple of years when I was a teenager. One of my greatest achievements with a deck of cards was figuring out a David Blaine trick (the "2 card monte" trick). I was so pleased with myself that I learned how to perform a trick that confused and delighted people but I was also a little disappointed. The magic trick had lost the magic.

I still love to see a good piece of magic (close-up being my favourite, bit stage pieces, less so) but I now love to just sit back and enjoy the wonderment bestowed by the magician(s).

What's the point of this waffling? Watch this...

This is magic.

I don't know how it's done. I don't want to know how it's done. Finding out would kill the magic.
