Today's lesson: always have a party trick. You never know when it could come in handy.
Steven Brundage, a magician in New York, was coming home from a Christmas party when he got pulled over for breaking the speed limit and probably thought he was done for until the cop on the scene saw the playing cards in his car and asked him why he had them. When he revealed he was a magician, the cop asked him to show him a trick and Brundage whipped this insanity out of the bag.
We really wish we'd been more dedicated to learning magic tricks as kids now.
