The Famous author, creator and billet worker, Al Mann said, "You rattled
me with your Jagged Edge billet test. It is great and original. I only
wish I had it when I wrote The Purloined Thought."
Hilford has taken the simplistic course of the Center Tear and given it
a new direction. The Jagged Edge allows the Mentalist to know EVERYTHING
that is written on a list.
people are asked to think of a past president. Each person must think
of a different president. To facilitate this, a small pad of paper passed
among the participants. Checking to make certain that their chosen president
has not been listed, each person writes the name that they have in mind.
If the name is already on the list, the participant has to select a different
all ten people have chosen a name, a new person looks over the list and
circles one name. The written list is no longer needed so one of the spectators
removes the sheet and folds it into quarters. The pad is tossed aside.
The mentalist tears the folded paper and throws it away; after all, it
was needed only to make certain that no names were duplicated.
MENTALIST IS NOW ABLE TO LOOK AT EACH PERSON ON THE LIST AND REVEAL WHAT
NAME THEY HAVE IN MIND!
this remarkable demonstration, the mentalist asks a member of the audience
to open a large envelope they have been holding since before the list
was made. Inside is a prediction. It reveals that the mentalist knew the
name that would be selected by the participant that circled a name!
new billet technique is applicable to endless presentations. In an instant,
you will be able to know what was written on the list, who wrote what
and which of the list was selected.
