"Magic for Morons" — World Premiere

Houston-based auteur Cary Sternick has just completed his latest video and once again I am both humbled and delighted to have the distinct privilege of hosting its world premiere.

I have never seen tricks like the two he performs above — and I hope never to see them again.

Wait a minute, joe....

Cary told me that he studied magic for many years before deciding that it might not be the wisest career path.

I can't imagine why.

What is it?

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: The carabiner-like piece functions as such.

Another hint?

OK.

It's not a prototype or concept but actually available and out there in use in the real world.

That narrows it down, huh?

Trigonometry in a nutshell

20647_540

When I think back to high school trig and recall the names of the various functions — sine, cosine, secant, cotangent et al — I was so intimate with, it's like remembering a journey to a foreign country that no longer exists.
