oh oh oh it's magic

I have all these bookmarks in my copy of Know-It-All of things I really liked or wanted to share but I didn't make any notes as to what I was marking so I'm trying to figure out what I thought was so important. Not having much luck. But I thought this was funny -

Jean-Eugene Robert-Houdin was a French conjurer who had such an impact to the world of magic that Houdini named himself in his honor. Robert-Houdin was sent to Algeria by the French government to duplicate the feats of the dervishes and lesson their influence. So the author of the Know-It-All suggested air-dropping David Blaine into Iraq. ("A really dangerous part of Iraq. A minefield, perhaps.")

He,Houdin, also invented many illusions that are still used today. And OMG, you have a "Plan Nine" icon.

LOL - we have "movie night" once a week, a while ago we did a double feature of Plan 9 and Ed Wood. Of course, the next day I went on line and made a bunch of Plan 9 icons :)

If we weren't so far away we'd LOVE to have a house concert, by the way. If you are ever touring through Florida and need a place to put on a show in route we are available! You guys would probably enjoy movie night, too. ;)
