EFFECT: The performer jots down a prediction on a small piece of paper, folds it into quarters, and drops it into a coffee cup. A spectator is now asked to name a time. She says, "7:35". She now reaches into the coffee cup, and removes the slip of paper, opens it up, and reads the time. Of course, it is 7:35.
- No one-ahead
- The spectator does not write anything down
- No nail-writers
- No math or spelling type force
- 99% impromptu
This effect, in part, involves a new psychological force that is original with David Devlin. The great part of this effect is that this becomes a demonstration of the spectator's mental abilities, and shows that everyone has some psychic ability to one degree or another. This is pretty much a do it anytime, anywhere piece of mentalism that really delivers a hard-hitting punch!
