mobile phone (or, you can just hand them an envelope with a picture
inside if you prefer) - it's your prediction. You hand them a Joker
and ask them to push it anywhere they like, face up into the face down
deck. It's a completely free choice, they can genuinely push it in where
You explain that whatever card
is above the Joker will be the focus of the experiment. But, you also
don't want to know where that Joker lies in the deck so, the spectator
is instructed to freely cut the cards as many times as he wishes so
that no one could possibly even estimate the position of that Joker.
Two things are certain. One - no one could know which card lies above
the Joker. And two - no one could possibly know at which position in
the deck that card lies.
You spread through and locate the Joker, leaving it out-jogged. You
now count cards from the top down until you reach the card directly
above the Joker - it's the Jack of Clubs and it's exactly 16 cards down
in the deck. The participant checks the picture message on their mobile
phone - it's a photograph of a Jack of Clubs with a small post-it stuck
on the face which reads '16th' in bold black letters! You mention that,
in fact, you were so certain of this outcome that you didn't actually
bother using the rest of the cards. The deck is turned face up and every
single card is freely shown to be completely blank! It's completely
unfathomable and the reactions are Through The Roof!
