Friday Magic Trick

In honor of Phenomenon and the fun of talking about magic tricks check out Ramana, aka Wouter Bijdendijk who has been doing the levitation trick shown below, only he’s doing it in front of the Whitehouse.

Here he is doing a similar piece standing on the side of a building – more performance art really.

I think the only one who can’t figure this one out is the current White House resident. It’s clearly a terrorist attempt to bring the executive to a standstill as he tries to puzzle it out.

Spoiler below.

This, is of course, very simple. The two clues are that you never see him actually going from the ground to the levitating position, and of course you have that carpet and stick (or in the case of the building that suspicious white canvass). Why if you really are levitating would you need a stick? Or to always be above something other than the solid ground?

You all have it now, right?
