I've often heard people say Tally's are thicker than Bikes. Other people say they aren't.

Easy way to end the confusion: weight a full, unboxed deck of each and compare the weights. Maybe Tally's are slightly thicker, enough that some people notice and others don't. Or maybe it's an illusion and they're the same?

I find this subject quite fascinating so I've started a thread on it. Not sure why I put it in the magician's only section, but, um, I did. It's here:

It was kind of a mistake. I was just scrolling through and saw "Other" (i.e. doesn't fit into any other category) and clicked it. Then when I went to post the link here I realised it was in the restricted area.

I wonder if the mods can move it?

If not, I can email you the highlights if you email me: clever[DOT]laurence[at]gmail.com

Yes, please do move it, Manders!

The thread doesn't deal with anything especially sensitive, so there's no real reason why it should be in the private section. Just an error really.

Did I just hear the whirl of cogs and the creak of cranks?
