— Ace The trick actually has nothing to do with the cards. Pay attention. I didn't, and now I feel stupider than usual.

My goal in life is to perform before an audience of aces.

But did any of you notice me sitting in the corner?
But it's like the old joke, "where does an 800 pound gorilla sit..anywhere he wants to pimp slap a bitch."

I'm going to be completely honest with you.
I didn't catch any of the color changes because I was too busy thinking about how I'd like to bone Sarah.
And no, seriously, didn't notice any of them.
And yes, seriously, she was distracting me because I want to do her.

I can't get over the amount of dupes who are fascinated by "magic tricks" they see on television or video. No offense to the dupes here, of course.
To the people who watch David Blaine and the other assholes who pretend to do magic on TV: Are you people fucking daft?

Well, I just feel like my normal stupid self. Even with your warning, I totally missed it.

I always suspected that there was another notch to my stupidity - an "eleven" so-to-speak. For once(!) I was right. I have no idea what this means, but the feeling is familiar.

I sort of caught the backdrop change, but not really.
So...Allison Stokke, huh?
Homina homina homina!

I also bought a brie and ham sammich. It was very nice.

I was so proud of myself sneering about the blatent switch of decks, "Hey! He swapped out the original deck of cards!", that I completely missed the swap out of all the other stuff.
Call it a card trick and people watch the cards. And brag that they saw the 'trick'.
As was stated above: Even with the warning, I missed it.

I even watched it again and still didn't catch it...

There are certain types of visual changes that you notice even when your attention is focused on something else, and others that you don't notice even when you are expecting them. Movement is a good example of the former, and this is a good example of the latter.
Now, if you really want to feel stupid, the gorilla-basketball video is the way to go. But that one doesn't work if you know about it. (And only works on about 50% of subjects anyway.)

Still pretty cool though.

As soon as the camera panned away from the cards, I wondered "well duh he's switching the deck" the whole point of the "trick" is to switch the deck in front of onlookers without them noticing.
Of course I missed all the other changes. I blame the movement of the camera, since it really isn't important what the background looks like, or the shirt colour, and I'm busy looking at the cards.
