The magician says, “To learn magic you have to study. But I wonder if it has something to do with heredity. My son is 5 years old and he’s a gifted child.”
The magician asks a spectator to come on stage. Assume, in this example, that his name is Tom. A plastic, yellow envelope with a big label is shown, with words printed on it: “Choose a Number from 1 to 100.” The magician asks Tom to point to anyone in the audience and asks him to choose any number. It is written on a sticky note and sticks it on Tom’s right palm.
The yellow envelope is opened, and a smaller plastic grey envelope is removed. It has a big printed label that says, “Choose a letter.” The magician asks Tom to point to another spectator in the audience to choose any letter. After he calls it aloud, it is written on a sticky note and stuck onto Tom’s chest.
