I thought when I retired that I would be bored. LOL I have more going on now than ever. Too many hobbies at once. Plus the less you HAVE to do the longer it takes to accomplish each task. One little thing can end up taking your whole day. Right now I have 5 flashlight mods to build, my air pistol to shoot, a violin to practice, a couple new songs to learn on the guitar and two books to read because I somehow ended up reading them both. On top of that I have forums to visit and all the regular household stuff. Spring is coming soon and I need to get my fishing gear in order. I also have to watch at least on movie each day. Film Noir is my new favorite. That and any new or old Sci Fi. Oh and I promised to list about 30 more lights for sale on BLF. I am putting a drop ceiling in my basement and hauling out the old furnace. I just installed a new kitchen stove. Oh my microwave died to I need to run to the city to get one. I need to haul down a dozen guitars to my buddies store to sell them, I want a new telecaster. Today I need to put in a cat door and clean the rabbit cages. I need to start a bon-fire today too. Need to get rid of a bunch of stuff before the snow goes away and the burn bans start. I have to get in touch with a couple of my buddies to put a new roof on my house this spring. 

The bad part is that this is only a partial list! 

Care to guess how many I will actually get done today?

Ummmmmmm None Good

It's actually not a trick, it's what's known as the ideomotor phenomenon.    It's the same thing that moves dowsing rods when dowsing, only when dowsing there is something else going on  as well.      ( dowsing/ witching is the same thing )

I would love to see your high speed piece of paper in action.

Here's another example of the ideomotor effect.....

I was too bored and lazy to even click the link. If it's not embedded, I don't watch it Tongue

On an unrelated note, we should have a big TVF get together at a pub someday. We'd have to plan it really far in advance so I could save up money for a trip to the UK, but damn that would be fun meeting you folks, plus I could spend a week or two in the Isles with my lady.
Michael I was in a pub last night that you would have liked
it was originally built in the caves under Nottingham castle and dates back to the 1100s
there is a old model galleon in there that if you clean it you will meet an untimely death
and a chair that if you sit in you get pregnant
needless to say I didn't clean the boat or sit in the chair Huh

Bob that would have been interesting if you sat in the chair. I've never met a pregnant man before!

RE: What do you do when you are bored ?
Well I did watch a movie and clean the bunny cages. So not too bad a day!

I have no idea how to make a video but I'll give you a hint on the paper trick. Use your thumb and practice, practice and practice some more. When I was a kid I loved magic tricks and learned a fair amount of "slight of hand". Coins between the fingers and rolling a nickle from finger to finger, card tricks and a little pick pocketing. Stuff like that. Oh and number tricks, I love them.

If you guys (and gals) have never seen Derren Brown you need to watch this or even if you have it's still worth watching this one. It's over the top, this guy is simply amazing.

http://www.movie25.ag/derren-brown-infam...52982.html

Quote:Infamous: BAFTA-winning Derren Brown returns with his extraordinary, Olivier Award-nominated, sell-out stage show Infamous, featuring his singularly inventive mix of thought-provoking, compelling entertainment. Captured live on stage at the Leeds Grand Theatre and Opera House during his 2014 tour, Derren debunks mediumship and celebrates the nerd as he hurtles towards his stunning finale.
Seriously you have to watch this it's that incredible.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

Derren Brown is a fantastic hypnotist, apart from other things. : ) 

Covert hypnosis at it's best.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0q2KGGMc1EM

The key thing is self hypnosis.

I have previously watched clips from Infamous on youtube. I would watch the entire free video video at the link if they did not want my credit card details first.

I've been there. In 1981 or thereabouts. A mate was studying photography at Trent Poly at the time.

Do you still need a beermat on top of your pint to stop bits of the ceiling ending up in your pint?

Wasn't that the pub where Richard the Lion Heart went boozing before heading off to the Crusades?
