    this is great. i tricked my dad and am planning to show it to my friends

    you could use one of those fake thumbs to hide it until you're ready to do the trick.

    I'm sorry to say but Magic is all gimmick. There is always a secret behind it.

    aww jake, thats really deep. I like this! i knew it was easy but didnt know how to do it XD

    cool, the onlyproblem is that you can't come with this trick in the middle of a show, as it require preparation!
