In this mysterious easy magic trick, you somehow cause several playing cards to adhere to your hand as if it were a magnet. Unlike most card magic tricks, this one offers a visualeffect that doesn't rely on spectators selecting and memorizing a card.
Using the scissors, cut a flap into one of the playing cards, as shown in the accompanying image. You'll need to make sure that the flap can easily fold up and down.
Glue the card with the flap onto the back of another card of the same color. Make sure that you don’t glue the flap down onto the second card. The flap must remain free.
After the glue dries, you'll have a card with a flap in its back. You'll be able to move the flap into an "up" position, or lay it down so it's relatively flat.
With the secret flap up, you can pinch the flap between your middle and ring finger, and securely hold the card. This is the secret to the trick. Practice this for a bit - picking up and releasing the gimmicked playing card by pinching and letting go of the flap.
With your hand held palm up, show the cards and get the gimmicked card into your hand with the flap up. Grab the flap of the card by pinching it between your middle and ring fingers.
In this easy magic trick. A finger ring that's resting on a pencil mysteriously levitates on its own. There's some preparation involved, but you should have fun with this one.
A finger ring
Clear Adhesive Tape
Using the clear adhesive tape, attach a bit of the thread to the top of the pencil, to the metal part that is just under the eraser.
Hold the pencil in your hand, eraser side up. Run the other end of the thread to a button on your shirt or to a belt buckle. You'll need to anchor the other end of the thread on your body. If you choose to use a button, you can form a loop in the thread and wrap it around the button.
With your thread in place, hold the pencil in your hand, as shown in the picture. You'll want the eraser side up.
Drop the finger ring onto the pencil until it's resting on your hand.
This picture shows how the thread runs from the top of the pencil to a button or your belt buckle. The thread has been exaggerated for demonstration purposes.
To make the ring descend, simply draw your hand toward your body and allow the thread to relax and drop the ring.
Make sure that you practice this one so you get the length of thread correct, as well as the motion of the hand to cause the ring to rise.
you'll discover that this is a powerful follow up. After showing that a pencil sticks to your hand as you grasp your wrist, you suddenly let go of your "grabbing" hand and the pencil mysteriously stays in place.
Preparation: Put on the wristwatch and then insert the end of one pencil under the watch band on the palm side of your hand. The pencil should extend to about the middle of your hand.
To perform the trick, instead of placing your finger underneath the pencil to hold it as you did in the easier version, you'll be slipping the end of the first pencil underneath the second pencil to support it. The first pencil that's under the watch is what keeps the first pencil in place underneath your hand.
With the new setup, perform the "Magnetic Pencil" according to the trick instructions.
Rest the second pencil on a table. Grab your wrist with one hand. Your other hand reaches from underneath to grasp your wrist.
Bring down your hand, palm down, to rest on top of the pencil. As you bring your hand down, extend the tip of first pencil that’s connected to your wrist watch under the second pencil that's resting on the table.
Suddenly let go of your grabbing hand and the second pencil stays in place.
Bring your hand down onto the table and as you come down, slip the pencil out from under the other pencil to release it. Take your hand away as you display the pencil on the table.
While I would normally never encourage any of you to expose the secret to a magic trick, this "follow-up" effect offers the opportunity to expose one effect, the magnetic pencil (referenced earlier in these instructions), and then create a second, more powerful effect that defies explanation.
Every fisherman dreams to catch some good number of fishes each day. It takes a big courage for the fishermen to sail for months in the middle of the sea to catch tons of fishes. And when they succeed in doing so, that day becomes the biggest day in their life.

After consuming the lives of nearly 1,000 individuals in the past year, there have been many controversies enveloping the Bermuda Triangle. As it turns out, the mystery behind all the deaths might finally be solved.
Scientists have been studying the weather and cloud patterns that engulf the Bermuda Triangle and they have rather shocking news on it.
They have been studying the ‘killer clouds’.
The weather pattern and the so-called ‘killer clouds’ could be the culprits of drowning many ships and planes that cross the area.
The deadly winds travel at the speed of 170mph.
A hexagonal cloud envelope is around the area that creates terrifying winds. These brutal blasts of air are capable of flipping massive planes and ships as well.
The radius of the clouds is estimated to be 20 to 55 miles.
They appear from the Western side of the Bermuda Triangle and they can be terrifying to anyone.
A radar satellite caught this image of the clouds.
It was said that most clouds don’t have a typical edge and they can often be varied in distribution. That also means that their stretch at a particular time can’t be determined for sure.
These winds are also called as ‘air bombs’.
They can rise 45ft up in the air. And can crash down many large planes. It was noted that a normal wind created by these clouds can reach the wind speed that was seen during Hurricane Katrina.
Over the years, many theories have been stated for the Bermuda Triangle.
Isn’t that scary?
There was a magnetic theory as well.
Here are some more theories involving the Bermuda Triangle.
