Magic Minds

Today is National Magic Day! Today is a day in honor of Harry Houdini, who was arguably the best magician to ever had lived. He died on Halloween day in 1926, and ever since, he has been remembered every year at Halloween. You can celebrate today by studying up on tricks and illusions that were from Harry's personal repertoire, which can be found quite easily online. Or you can just dress up as him for Halloween. I have to warn you though, if you dress as him, you should study some tricks anyway. People will ask for tricks once they realize who you are. You don't want to have no aces up your sleeve. Literally.

Today is also Increase Your Psychic Powers Day! Sorry to those not fortunate enough to be at least a little psychic. To the rest of the people, today is the day to polish your brains and make sure you aren't losing your touch. More than that, it's the day to get better. See how many of your friend's sentences you can finish, or try to guess who just texted you before you look at the phone. ... Those are really the only methods of practice I know. Just goes to show that we all need to work a little harder at it. After all, if everyone would just be psychic... Actually that would make things really boring. Maybe we shouldn't push for that.

Thanks for reading!
