Good grief.

I will never here the last of this; she has now entered two contests and won prizes in both.

Although, as I type, I don't think she ever got her copy of Craft magazine?

Since I'm so helpful, sure! :D

Kiteman has embedded some of his videos on this site. By following the trail back to youtube, we find out his username is "Thelangfords" or something like that, I don't recall exactly. As further verification, on their userlookup, it gives his age as 40-same as Kiteman.

Lol, I can't find him anywhere else, though I have diligently searched for teachers in East Anglia, no joy so far...somehow I think of his first name as being David, but that's just a wild guess...

David Langford is a successful SciFi author and journalist. I almost met him once. Unfortunately, he is no relation.

His home page

What's very weird is, because I prefer to use the name Kiteman online (that's a hint), when I google my real name I find a lot of news articles about me committing fraud, or dying.

That is genuinely spooky.

Let's see, is this your homepage? I don't think so?

You own a mac. Running OS 10.

No, I meant I prefer to be referred to as Kiteman online. YouTube is the only site where I use my surname, and that's only because Kiteman was already used.

No, it's not secret, I just prefer to reduce the risk of stalkers (I used to use my proper name when I wrote for the BBC, had a few problems).

DUH! They;re you;re kids! Means that they analyze situations....Once at a birthday party, a clown got angry because I saw through all his magic tricks.

Hmm, not always.... I have found in general that children, especially some very young children are harder to fool with magic then adults. In fact, on the average, I would rather have an audience of nuclear physicists then an audience made up of 1-5th graders while doing a magic show. The poor scientists tend to see the unexplainable and the conflict becomes unresolvable...while a child has no preconceived ideas and many times will see "what is really going on". I have seen this over and over again. :-) But if you like to watch magic, do not look for the answer as to how they are done....believe me, you will be SORELY disappointed.
