To Err is Irritating: Corrections by Inside Magic

Errors and Omissions. It
is the policy of Inside Magic, to correct misstatements or errors
within five calendar years of being made aware of the mistake.


In the June, 1985 edition of Implied Magic (later to become Incisor Magnet to become Island Magma and finally, Inside Magic) we reported that Penn and Teller would join with the Amazing Jonathan to open a religious magic school that taught gospel magic presentation and performance.


The article should have included the word ?not.? Inside Magic regrets the error.


In the September 13, 2002 Edition of Inside Magic, the trick of the week, The Clinging Card was presented with incorrect instructions.

The preparation of the trick should have said, ?use some of your mom’s glue stick? rather than ?mucous from someone who is sick.? Inside Magic regrets the error.

In the May through August 1999 Editions of Inside Magic, the webpage was written entirely in Pig Latin.


Because
of the dramatic drop-off of readership due to this editing mistake,
Inside Magic lost the ad revenue necessary to pay the rent on the
Inside Magic Tower in Los Angeles as well as the Inside Magic Baseball Park in Houston (later to become Enron Field).


The financial collapse of this empire was blamed by many for the start of the Dot.Com sell-off.


Inside
Magic regrets the error deeply and is currently in therapy to come to
terms with its own failures as well as its feelings of guilt associated
with the gutting of one of the most prosperous economic times since the
Florida Land Boom in 1928-1929.


In the December, 2001 edition of Inside Magic, the instructions for Fire Juggling for Kids should have made it clear that it was the adult magician who was to do the juggling and not the kids.


Inside Magic thanks the Shriner?s Hospitals for their community service and for brining this to Inside Magic?s attention through a recently settled lawsuit.


In the September 12, 2003 edition of Inside Magic, we erroneously reported that the glass box to be used by David Blaine was air-tight and only had enough oxygen for five hours and thirty minutes.


Inside Magic had wondered what the trick would be in having a dead guy stay in an air-tight container for 44 days after his anoxic death.

Inside Magic also regrets the comment based on this misunderstanding, ?Who on earth would want to open that box after 44 days?! His body is going to stink like road-kill.?


Mr. Blaine’s handlers have pointed out that even if he had passed away
on day one of 44 days in an air-tight container, “because of his
training and study of the great dead people of History, he would not
stink.”


TheAssociation
for Road Kill also took offense to the comment. Inside Magic regrets
the error and wonders what the members of the Association for Road Kill
or, for that matter,the handlers for Mr. Blaine, really do.
