Web Watch readers know that Web Watch appreciates a good magic show.
The key for us in watching a good magic show is being able to escape from the practical, logical mind and stop wondering about how David Copperfield or Penn & Teller do their acts and enjoy the illusions for what they are. As the old saying goes, don’t ruin the magic.
The illusions aren’t the same once you know how they’re done, or at least have thought of a plausible way for the trick to be accomplished. You spend all your time looking for the hook and not appreciating the trick for the trick.
