As a high school student, no matter how a trick is performed, I almost always have a spectator who is skeptical of how it is done. I've found it's usually the kids who think very highly of themselves and will try to explain it. The funny part is, usually they have the most ridiculous explanations for the trick that are much more complicated than the real solution. There's one guy I know who has done it twice in my years of knowing him. In third grade, I performed that sort of "boomerang" illusion for him with the two curved pieces of paper that seemingly change size. His explanation was that the boomerangs were made of gold. He said that since gold can be flattened out and will increase in size, they were made of gold and all I had to do was put pressure on them. Years later, I performed the invisible deck for him. He was very suspicious of the fact that he had to say the card he was thinking of out loud. So his explanation was that the box contained a microphone and electronics that would recognize the sound of a card and flip that specific card over. I've also heard people say I used heat reactive cards for color changes and gallium for coin vanishes. It seems that they're often based on some sort of cool science facts they read about online. Some may say that this is because I'm not good at performing and people immediately think that it's explainable. Although I don't claim to be a great magician (I'm not), as I mentioned before it's sort of the skeptical nature of teenagers. Plus, I find it to be kind of a good thing that the first thing they jump to is ridiculously complicated. Online with other magicians it's even crazier. I've seen comments where one person accuses the magician of using demons and then someone corrects him saying that people like David Copperfield have figured out how to access 100% of their brain and can manipulate reality. And then someone corrected him saying that it's called "chi". Anyway, what's the craziest thing someone has ever said as an explanation for one of your tricks? Was it overly complicated or did they downright think it was real magic like Arthur Conan Doyle did with Houdini? Let me know!
