I have seen this vid before. Stealing his tie was only possible because this guy was so focused on the camera...

Come on, if a stranger touches your shoulder and getting that close, then your alarm clocks should be ringing...

It seems so obvious watching the video, but I guess being in the actual moment is a different story Lol

Yeah, each movement he does is meant to divert the person attention from the hand thats actually pickpocketing.

Call me a criminal, but i think this is really an art!! Biggrin

There's actually a show called "The Real Hustle" which shows many cons practiced today, and how we can prevent from losing our money and stuff in them, its an awesome show!

Simply amazing,

The thing is, this guy went too far ( of course to show the example ), as for stealing his tie would be little too risky, however, I suppose he would have no trouble to steal someones phone or purse.

Amazing.

I saw Derren Brown live in Dublin a few years ago. An amazing showman! Love his TV shows too.

I know that some of the Dynamos tricks are set up, but in this one... I don't see moment where the film would be cut off in order to swap those cards in their both mouths, as Dynamo claimed himself being an illusionist ( doing tricks no magic ), that this one is really high level.

Real or not, but this guy is gifted and that's a fact.

You'll see him lower his hand and go off camera a bit around the 25 second mark. Don't know any magic myself, but odds are he did something quick and put a card prewritten with his name into her mouth. Then around 48 seconds, he gets up to put the pen in his pocket, and his hand again blocks the deck, at which point he must have shuffled out her actual card to put in his own mouth.

Dude's got skills....

About magic. Many people misunderstand what magic is, some think it's godly force, others think it's illusion, yet others think it doesn't exist.

What magic actually is every humans ability to use senses forbidden to majority, some can distort people's mind fields, others can use extreme telepathy, yet in strongest cases some can actually move particles (thus move objects) and or manipulate Earths forces to some extent. None of it comes free and almost always comes with a heavy price, you lose your energy, you lose your health and eventually you lose your mind.

The dark side may appear tough in common people's terms, but generally dark side is the weakest form of power. Why? Let's see, who dropped lucifer and other evil dark side beings down and still humiliates them for "fun" out of might? Exactly. Good is the greater "evil" and it possess powers nobody can defeat.

It happened to me few times some jackheads thinked they can abuse people around me or even threaten me and my girlfriend, I take my mac out and push them to the floor, make them chew on that sidewalk and literally piss down out of fear. Let me see them how they are now with their dark side.

Several individuals attempted to take my life away (because I have something they don't, or they simply have nothing to lose, note that I often work in dangerous places as I travel) they all failed, and as I said, good is the greater "evil" it feeds individuals power, shows the right way and opens new horizons regardless of what your origin or religion is, and I don't mean the weak good folk who just sit there and do nothing, those are pathetic.

I think I said before but I will repeat. Be evil and you will be killed, be good and you will be abused, be something in between to extremes and you will be worshiped by others.

That dude who steals like a pro, he's just packing good survival skills. Sure thing stealing isn't good, but imagine if a war scenario broke out? He would survive where others would fail. That being said, opportunities are to be used not to be missed.

To me, magic is not the "supernatural" senses a human might have (those are honed in yoga and similar practices), but the mystery behind the illusion presented by the magician. You could do the "removable finger" trick or the "appearing candy" trick to a child it would be like magic to him.

Once the trick behind the illusion is known, the magic is lost. Yet not everybody knows the trick behind every illusion out there, that's why magic is prominent around the world.

I'll just leave this here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umineko:_When_They_Cry
the visual novel has its sections where it delves into the intricacies of magic. Granted, it's a mystery story with magical elements (and contains grotesque, graphically implied murder in the VN, and explicit scenes in the manga and the anime), yet it makes for a really interesting story.
