Deck of Cards Torn in Half

Place the left half of the 52 card deck on the palm of the left hand, the left thumb resting on the lower left side of the deck and the four fingers grasping it tightly by the bottom. The right hand holds the other side of the deck in a reverse position, the right thumb resting on the upper right side. Hold them firmly and bend them in the middle to weaken them. Then twist the hands in opposite directions, right hand to the right and left hand to the left, like screwing the cap off a jar. Do it a few times and you will notice the cards tearing in the middle. Do this until they are completely torn apart.
At first you might want to rest the left hand on one knee for support when bending and twisting the deck. After some practice you won't need to use the knee. Also, the first few times you might want to start with less cards, and add more as you go.
Some people are so good at this they can tear the deck into quarters.

Twenty-Six Drop Pop

I was sitting around with a bunch of old high school friends, talking about what we had all been up to recently. I mentioned some of the subjects that were going to be in this book. One of my friends said he had a real jewel for me. He picked up the whisky bottle that we had just emptied, turned it up side down and pounded the bottom of it with his palm to get every drop out of it. Then he handed the bottle to me and said to wave it around in the air until it was completely dry inside.
After getting tired of waving and being completely satisfied that the bottle was dry, I handed it back.
He looked at the bottle and said that there were still twenty-six drops in it. He placed a napkin on the table and said: "Get ready to count them." He took out a lighter and ran the flame all around the outside of the bottle to heat it up.
Sure enough, the alcohol fumes turned to liquid and he poured out twenty-six drops. There was still another ten or fifteen drops left. He said they were for him, and drank them.

The Flies have it

Have a cup of coffee with a friend. Dip a piece of bread in your coffee and put it on the saucer. Ask your friend to do the same and challenge him that whoever attracts the most flies to his piece of bread wins. You could bet and win one hundred dollars a fly!
Secret: Before you offer the bet, pour lots of sugar in your cup of coffee when your friend isn't looking.

The Edible Candle

You can make one from the fleshy part of an apple and a piece of walnut which will be used as a wick. (Walnut burns). Bon App├ętit!

The Ice Candle

Mix in a test tube an equal part of water and ether, shake very well. Place the tube in a small container that holds an equal part of ice and salt.
Once the candle is frozen, you can light it.

One Hundred Words Bet

Bet someone that you can quickly say one hundred words in a row without using the letters A, B, C, J, K, M, P, Q, Z.
Secret: Count from one to one hundred. None of these words contain the above letters. Or you could simply say "One hundred words, one hundred words" for an easy trick to play on pals.

The Big Hit

Here is a way to break a rock with your bare fist. Use a limestone rock and let it soak in water overnight. The limestone acts like a sponge, absorbing the water into its pores which will rot the stone. It is then placed on a flat surface. Now raise your hand closed into a fist, and hit it right in the middle with the side of the fist, not with your knuckles.
The stone instead of your hand should break into pieces.

Dry Coin

Pour enough water into a dinner plate to just cover a quarter and drop the quarter in. Challenge anyone to pick up the coin without getting their fingers wet.
Secret: It can be done. Cut a cork lengthwise so that it floats easily on its flat side. Then stick two lit wooden matches on top of the floating cork.
Place a glass next to the quarter, on top of the burning matches and cork. A vacuum is created and the water will be sucked inside the glass. You can now pick up the quarter without getting your fingers wet.

Out of Reach

Here is a funny bar bet that you can't lose. Have someone stand against a wall with his heels touching it. Now place a ten dollar bill at his feet.
Challenge him to pick up the bill without bending his knees or moving his feet. There is no way he'll be able to get it, so your bill is safe.
Secret: The reason he can't bend over is because the wall stops him from moving his back.

Human Feats of the 21st Century - WARNING!!


DISCLAIMER
The contents of this section are dangerous. Misuse of the material can cheapen an art form or at the very least make you look stupid. More importantly, misuse of this information may result in jail time or death. Do not attempt any of these tricks without the direct supervision of a responsible professional.  

Bar Through Tongue

An Italian by the name of Frankroy, posing as an Asian, presented the following in New York. Playing side shows and stores, he tells that the effect is old in his own country although seldom seen elsewhere.  A steel hook is pushed through his tongue. A large vase full of water, supposedly weighing five hundred pounds is suspended from the hook and the performer whirls around with all this dangling from his tongue.

Secret: The hook is curved like the old knife through the arm. It is switched for the genuine hook under cover of cleaning the same. The fake hoop loops around the tongue and the teeth hold the brace. The vase has a small capacity because of a false partition, hence holds much less water than supposed. It is made of light hammered brass and though appearing heavy is really light.

Human Radio Feature
A wonderful advertising stunt using the needle jabbing test with it. This is intended for window or lobby work in a theater or store. Seat yourself in a chair with a loud speaker on one side and the receiving set on the other. Insert a needle in the left arm and one in the right. Connect the wire from the receiving set to one needle and the speaker wire to the other. Now have the radio tuned in. The music passes through the body. This is wonderful bally effect, and no harm can result from this. It is best not to use too powerful a set.

Human Pincushion
The maxim here is IF you can pinch an inch of skin, you can stick a pin through. Professional pincushions typically ram needles and skewers through their arms, legs, throats, chests, cheeks and eyebrows anywhere they can lift extra skin.

The keys are: do not ram needles through vein and capillary systems; and when pulling needles out, pull slowly, giving any blood that may have formed time to coagulate.

Pincushions typically start with pins, then gradually work their way up to skewers. They develop sweet spots and can eliminate the original discomfort associated with this act.

Sideshow World: FEATS OF TORTURE


WARNING!! DO NOT TRY ANYTHING YOU READ HERE!
DISCLAIMER

More importantly, misuse of this information may result in jail time or death. Do not attempt any of these tricks without the direct supervision of a responsible professional.

One of the first books I ever read that got me interested in SECRETS OF THE STRANGE was Feats of Torture, written by Joseph Ovette. This book is now out of print, but it was so influential to me that I’ve included his experiences in this chapter. I’ve also added a few of my own.

BRANDING ONESELF WITH A HOT IRON
It will be well to mention that the main qualities in any of these feats are nerve and pure guts, and plenty of both. That is putting it plain. Only a person with plenty of nerve should consider tackling this type of work.
All you need here is a common electric soldering iron properly connected and working, and your arms bared. Hold the iron in your right hand and gently but lightly place the iron on the skin, searing it.
IT WILL BURNbut not much, if the branding is lightly done. Be sure the iron is HOT. An added effect can be had by smearing the spot to be branded with Vaseline. Then when the iron touches the arm it will cause a hissing sound. This lessens the danger of burning, but watch for persons who faint!

NEEDLE JABBING
Use long surgical needles and be sure they are sterilized well. Extend your arm. Tell someone to grasp a bunch of skin and to pull it up. With the needle in your right hand jab it through the skin.  The only pain you will experience will be a slight sting. Several needles can be so inserted. Draw out the needle slowly and the blood will not flow and thus you can also demonstrate the stoppage of the blood. The needles can also be run through the cheek, from cheek to cheek, or through the loose skin under the neck.
Note: A firm pressure before inserting the needle practically anesthetizes the area. This is known as “pressure anesthesia”, and is frequently used by dentists before inserting their needle. Only a sharp sting is felt.

FANGS OF LUCIFER
A variation of the above was marketed by me as the Fangs of Lucifer. In this the fakir demonstrates his ability to render his body immune to common place injuries. Long heated needles are deliberately thrust through various parts of the body and permitted to cool. They are  then withdrawn and no blood flows from the wounds, nor is there any sign of pain.
Principle and application are the same as the preceding torture. But since the explanations given are fuller we will expand them here. No preparation is needed, although rubbing the arm with a strong salt solution before the test will prove beneficial. Warm needles. That is, heat them, but do not get them red hot since that may blunt the points. Insert needles with a firm, steady push, either fakir or an assistant holding up the flesh (pressure anesthesia).
A slight pain will be experienced as the needle goes through; after that no pain with the possible exception of a throbbing due to the excessive heat of the needle. Several needles may be inserted, then permitted to cool. In drawing these out, do so quickly, since the needles will tend to stick as the flesh may be seared or the cooling blood coagulate.  To finish, dab the punctures with peroxide or iodine and upon retiring, place a dab of carbolated Vaseline on the wounds. In a couple of days all signs of the experiment will disappear.
In using surgical needles, you will find them very thin, the thinner the better, and sharp. The genuine fakir uses hatpins which, by the way, are not very sharp nor strong. You, though, should sterilize your needles, the heat in most cases being ample.
There are some who, to make the effect more gruesome, break the needles off or suspend weight from their ends. A dab of Vaseline can add to the effect since it will hiss and sear like burning flesh when touched with the hot needle. This is not a pleasant sight or effect, to be sure, but there are many who have found that they can sit and grin and shove needles into their skin at will.

Again, Do not attempt any of these tricks without the direct supervision of a responsible professional!!
