Ultimate Rip Off or Dancing with the Last Piece – The ultimate bluff ending for Paul’s Torn ‘n’ Restored Card twenty years later, a way to restore the last piece.
Creation – Patrick Martin’s practical “workers” approach of producing a live moth to create maximum astonishment.
Shell Shock – Gregory Wilson’s practical technique for blowing a hardboiled egg right out of its shell then finding a marked coin inside its yolk.
Tunnel Vision – A just-barely-possible way to make yourself disappear using a rolled-up paper tube and more nerve than most of us possess.
