    I don't agree with this list, there are far better magicians out there way better than Chris Angel and David ,both have always used actors and scripts for their so called magic trick and now David isn't even hiding it anymor6by using actual Hollywood actors. they are a disgrace to the word magician

    I used to really like Criss Angel, but most of his tricks only work on television after being edited....David Blaine is the best tv magician IMO because he actually trains his body to do tricks. They are legit.

    10. Chop cup by Paul Daniels is as straight forward as it appears...............The Lemon - he puts it into the cup with his left hand in the pocket (jacket) at the same time he lifts the cup to expose the white ball (you can actually see the orange if you are not "distracted" by the white ball). Then removes the ball with his right hand while placing the cup faced down. And also for the 2nd orange - same method but now with left hand (beware f his distractions - then u will c HOW he did it)

    i think yall should try watching liu qian, a taaiwanese magician that really blows my mind everytime! like rubbing tea leaves to produce smoke in his hands and blowing the smoke against a glass teapot filled with water to make a pot of tea... and removing a panda print from a girl's shirt by taking a photo using a camera... his tricks are really out of the world!!! oh and also using a straw to drink orange juice from a cup from a window... (i really dont know how to describe this... there was a table with a cup of orange juice on it, the cup was at least 2 feet away from the window he was standing outside of... he put the straw against the window and starting drinking, lowering the level of orange juice in the cup and spitting out orange juice from his mouth afterwards...)

    Penn and Teller think it is immoral to put your life at risk on stage so catching the bullet is a trick.

    I think I know how #3 works. You need something to keep the jacket upright and the pants above the knees to stay up right meanwhile you just bend over to drop your head. Notice how we never get an angle of it other than the front.

    * Chop Cup - Paul Daniels... yes, but Penn and Teller did a much better version... significantly slower as their own repeat in clear plastic cups
    * Jackhammer Swallowing - Thomas Blackthorne... yes
    * Coin in Arm - Criss Angel... no, his seemingly best are only televised around paid actors and even most of his tricks are easy to figure out
    * Dove Act - Lance Burton... yes
    * Spitting Up a Live Frog - David Blaine... no, small local audience of paid actors
    * Tiny Plunger - Jon Armstrong... yes
    * Chinese Water Torture Cell - Harry Houdini... yes, although such might be more of a stunt
    * Teeth Bullet Catching - Penn and Teller... yes
    * Quick Switch Behind A Curtain -- ???, yes

    No, no, no... in having enough of a creative mind to figure these out, but still looks great --
    Falling Head and Mobile Disembodiment are quite the same
    Hooped Floating Light Bulb as a tiny version Levitating People

    So basically... a Top 7 list in my earnest opinion while taking from the honorable mention.

    Come on! The Criss angel mind fake who sold his soul to Rainman/Satan in for very temporary lame earthly fame [like every other 'famous' person and even more people who didn't even get 5 minutes of fame but are in non-stop torment] coin trick in the arm, you can clearly see that's fake plastic skin; and the lady he pulled apart was a real lady with no legs to begin with. If Criss angel is so good, why couldn't he recently not get out of a straight jacket? Blain, Angel, Dynamo, ect.... are all demon-possessed clones now. They are all suffering non-stop in reality and full of regret, just like all the dead child-raping coward pedophiles and soon all the coward pedophile/baby rapers alive will join them in forever torment and death will flee from them.
