Magician Saves Bunny

 

 

Amateur magician David Landry, of Sterling (VA), justifiably made the papers today with his death-defying efforts to save a rabbit from rush hour traffic.

Mr. Landry has been a magician for the last ten years and currently serves as a Major in the United States Air Force. On January 4th, Mr. Landry was negotiating rush hour traffic when suddenly he saw an animal dart into the road and narrowly miss the wheels of an on-coming SUV.

Mr. Landry initially thought the animal, now huddled in a ball in the middle of the boulevard was a stray cat.  When he got closer, he found it was a “stunned and stranded jackrabbit.” 

 

The accomplished magician and inventor of the Dave‘s 16-Digit Deception ? a very cool magic trick ? grabbed the bunny by the scruff of his neck and carried him safely to the side of the road.  Mr. Landry told reporters that he used his magic training to know how to grab the wild critter without being bitten. 

 

?We magicians and rabbits need to stick together,? Landry said.

For mentalists … it’s new and different.”

Here’s the effect in a golden plated walnut shell:

 

The magician asks the audience members to take out their wallets. Each spectator can pick any credit card from his wallet. With every spectator using his own credit card number, the magician leads the audience through a simple series of calculations – resulting in one number being selected. Everyone is told to concentrate on his secret number. Finally, the magician reveals that everyone is thinking of the same number!
