Brain Eraser # One
After doing the feat of recalling
the objects that a person has given you (see
Memory of an
tell him that you can erase all objects from your mind except
Ask him to randomly cross out
each object and to say loudly at the same time what it is. For
example: ďIím crossing out the number six, Iím crossing out the
number ten, Iím crossing out the number three,Ē etc, until one
number is left. Immediately you can recall the exact item that
corresponds to the remaining number.
When the volunteer
crosses out the objects,
add the numbers together in your
head. Once all 29 numbers are called out, subtract the total
The number you get will be the
only one left.
When working with thirty objects,
know that if you add the numbers together you get a total of
465. If you are working with twenty objects, the total of
these numbers is 210. If you are working with ten objects, the
total is 55.
Brain Eraser # Two
This one works only with ten
objects. Turn your back to the audience and hang your arms at
your sides. Have your fingers touch your legs and imagine
that each one represents the numbers between 1 and 10.
When the audience member calls
out the numbers, lift the corresponding fingers, until one is
left touching the leg. The corresponding number will be the
object left out on the list (see
Memory of an Elephant).

and swinging a person with your teeth can
entertaining, or it can get you thrown in jail. Itís a
good one if youíre trying to entertain.
Neck muscles are much stronger
than people think, especially if they are exercised. The lifting
is easy. The secret is knowing that it canít be done with teeth.
It can only be done with the pressure of a mouth piece going
against the upper concave part of your mouth.
Take a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 foot piece
of canvas and attach a small chain to each corner. The four
chains are held together with a longer one attached to a hook
that you have wrapped with leather for your mouthpiece. Glue
enough leather to fit snugly into your mouth.
THE RISK OF BODILY HARM...
Now tell the volunteer to lie
down on the canvas and make sure that heís well balanced. When
ready to lift, bend your knees. Put pressure on your upper legs
with your hands as you straighten your legs and start lifting.
Very few people know that they
can lift more weight with one finger than they can with both
Place a heavy weight (it could be
a block of steel) between your legs. Attach a hook to the weight
where youíll lift from. Put the third finger of the lifting hand
through a ring that is attached to the hook. The finger must fit
tightly and snugly. Make sure to get a good hold when curling it
around the ring. Bend the knees and place the free hand on one
knee and keep the lifting arm straight the entire time.
Start the lifting by
straightening the legs and putting more pressure with the hand
on the knee. This stunt can be achieved easily with
Many men can lift over 400
pounds. When doing it for the first time, lift a small amount of
weight and work your way up.
A man lies on the ground while a
car is driven over his body. After the stunt, he comes out
There is only one way to do it
semi-safely. The man lies between two ramps placed at the
thighs, and one inch shorter than his body while flattened to
the ground. When the car drives up the ramp and the front wheels
are on his body, he doesnít feel it because all the weight has
been shifted to the lower back wheels. When the front wheels
have passed over him, the car is now pointing down on the other
side of the ramp, shifting the weight to the hood and making the
weight of the back wheels pain-free as well.
