I like watching magicians. I can never figure out how they do it and just enjoy being fooled by them. Magician Dan White appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show and did the following trick.
See if you can figure it out before reading the partial spoiler after the jump.
I think I can figure out everything about the trick except how White knew whether the coin was in Fallon’s hand or not. He clearly knew it before he went into his mind-reading spiel each time and once he had that, everything else falls into place because he poses the alternatives to match what he had already written on the currency note.
