This is a mathematical based effect you do on the back of your business card that the spectator gets to keep and take home with them. Very easy to perform.
The effect was created by Raj Madhok and was originally published in Syzygy.
A spectator chooses three numbers, one related to the future, one related to the past and the third one related to the present. These are added up and match your prediction.
Recorded live at the Convention at the Capital 1999.

This is a completely foolproof impromptu effect that is terrific. It's really good because even if as a mentalist you try to reverse engineer it, it will take some time to figure it out. Lay people will just be baffled. The trouble is, the instructional video was done so long ago--back in the 90s--that the effect will not work if you follow Lee's instructions. You have to modify one part of the mathematical process, which if you closely follow how the trick is done, shouldn't be a problem. You'll figure it out. If not, here's a hint: 116.
