Gah!

Why do threads like this keep catching my eye?

It's Friday....It's Pay-Day...ohh - here's a review thread I've missed.....Whoah! How the hell did that 'Transaction Complete' and PayPal logo appear? :shock: :roll:

This is MORE than CUPS - this is some evil, dirty voodoo brain control that you guys just keep springing on me, isn't it? :evil:

Still - it's a Harris effect, and at £13.00, I figured I couldn't go far wrong :D

You''l feel soooo much better when the Postman arrives with that tantalising Jiffy Bag, all ready and waiting to be torn open in a jibberingly insane and manic frenzy.

At least, that's the way I do it :oops: !

Michael Kras, I already perform an impromptu version of this as mentioned before. I also own strange travellers. The effect is from the pot of jam DVD and could be considered better than the harris version in that you can have more than one card "travel" from a borrowed, shuffled pack. It is, however, slightly more difficult.

I would be happy to give your findings a look to see how they differ and stand up to the other 2 effects and report my own findings here.

not a fan of sigs, so I won't bother adding o..... oh
:oops:

Ah yes strange travelers is yet another great trick of pot of jam. The beauty is the simplicity although I wouldn't class it as sleightless. It seems pretty similar to the effect in question here.

Rob I'd be very careful if I was you! I got caught into the trap of cheaper items and instant downloads. I got lured into a false sense of security believing that it wasn't CUPS.

That was until my credit card bill arrived and all these £7-10 bills were listed all down the page. Instant downloads- they're a silent killer, watch out for them!!!

Can anybody please help me? I'm having terrible problems controlling my streetmagic- I can't walk down a street without turning into a pub.

I hear you bud!

I got stung (but only the once) with E's Mercury.

Nowadays, I generally ONLY buy something once it's been out for quite some time, and has accumulated at least several month's worth of reviews on TM.

The only time, recently, that I've broken this rule was for Outlaw's Relic - and that was only because Mr. Roth was so up-front about what it consisted of :twisted:

I know I'm always scared now to read all these reviews. Its a bit like a recovering alcoholic having beer waved under his nose.

You then getting people harping on about Outlaws Kioku effect for a very cheap price. I know I'll also probably buy a few more items because "I might as well get more now while I'm getting stuff shipped out"

Its getting to the point now were everytime I read these reviews I end up pointing and waving my fist up into the air, shouting "dam you TM, dam you"
:D

Just be careful not to stab yourself with a sharp instrument! Or at least don't film it and release the video on YouLube. :lol:

hehe Rob.. what are you like?? :wink: You're out of control!!

I havent got strange travellers and despite wanting it a while back.. i made my own version before discovering James Browns fancy and pot of jam and brainless travellers on there is so much better than the version here.

Rob.. you should really get Fancy a pot of jam. It is probably the best purchase I have ever made!! :twisted:
