The Color Changing Card Trick


Brent McKee said...

Standard misdirection - we're so focused on the colour of the cards, because of the "presenter" is telling us that that is what is important, that we don't notice the other changes until we're told to look for them. It's one reason why eye witness testimony isn't necessarily accurate, and why magicians continue to make a very good living. Not to mention why certain politicians can stay in office despite starting seemingly unending wars.
