no limit to the fun that can be had with some goofy
sunglasses and an open stage. Watch and see for yourself

are all these limbs coming from?! Have you ever seen
such a sight in your life?

Amazing Arrow Trick
Produced by Maric ..........(S900d-iFrame)
Very easy illusion
to do at home trying it yourself.
When the arrow
is moved to a particular distance behind the
glass, it looks like it reversed itself. When light
passes from one material to another, it can bend or
refract. In the experiment that you just completed,
light traveled from the air, through the glass, through
the water, through the back of the glass, and
then back through the air, before hitting the arrow.
Anytime that light passes from one medium, or material,
into another, it refracts.
This is based
on the famous dragon illusion which was inspired by
Jerry Andrus to celebrate Gathering for Gardner 3.
Thank you to
my friend Kath for creating the T-rex design! I've included
a link for you to print out your own. The trick looks
best through a camera. If you close one eye and move back
and forth it works pretty good too.
