As I do every time, I handed out the cards after performing Vernon's "Twisting the Aces". And, as usual, the spectators tried to pull the cards apart, then grope my arms looking for hidden cards etc. I encountered one specatator, however, when he was holding the cards, was asking me about my magic, and was fiddling the cards in a very peculiar way. He had the cards in his fingertips, and was counting the cards like an elmsley count. I kid you not. (this is bordering on exposure, but i couldn't think of any way to word it) He was doing the Elmsley count, except for the part where you take the 2 cards. So it was like he was counting 4 for 5. The strange thing was, he wasn't even concentrating on his hands, he was concentrating on the conversation he was having for me. He was just subconciously counting the cards like that, as if he was just fiddling. I was flipping out on the inside. But funnily enough, he was saying that he had absolutely no clue how I did the trick. Now, not to boast, but my Elmsley count is freaking tight. I do not perform until I can do a sleight perfectly. I have never been called out on my Elmsley count. There's no way he could have seen it, as I've pulled it off too many times to count, and I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it is perfect. I just wonder if there is maybe a part of our brain that subconciously sees the tiny little moves. Or somehow our brain attempts to deduce what happened in the trick. Or maybe this guy was just an anomaly. This hasn't happened before, because most people take the cards, make sure they're not gaffed, or theres no dupes, and then hand them back, or pass them on. I didn't take the cards off this guy, because we were just chatting, and he was just fiddling with the cards. Pretty weird. Tell us what you think.
