A couple of days ago I wrote about a post about the License Plate Prediction trick (you can read it here). I was thinking about it some more and came up with another, probably better presentation. The idea is that in high school you named your car. You have a list of the top baby names from the year you bought your car. You run scissors down the list and they saw stop whenever they want. You cut the list at that point. They read the first name from where the list was cut and end up matching your license plate.
This would simply be the trick where you have the list of names printed upside down. So when you cut the list, the name at the top where they think you cut it is actually the last name on your list. That’s a simple and effective force for a trick like this that is list bases.
I think there’s tons of room for fun in this trick. “I named my car “Carl” and would tell my mom that carl and I are going out. It was month before she realized that Carl wasn’t real.”
Now that I’ve got the hook and the method, it’s just a matter of writing the script and testing it out.
