"Pick a Card, Read Their Mind" Trick
A spectator cuts the cards behind the magician's back and looks at the card cut to. Without ever having to see the cards, the magician looks the spectator in the eye and reveals the card selected!
A pack of cards.
Take out a pack of cards and give it to someone to shuffle. Let them shuffle as long as they want. When they finish, have them hand the cards to you.
In getting the cards back from him or her, secretly glance at the bottom card and remember it. Let's say, for example, that it's the two of clubs.
Turn your back on the spectator, hold the cards behind your back, and tell them, "Now, go ahead and cut the cards wherever you wish. I won't look." Let the spectator take some cards off the top of the pack and hold them in their hands.
When the spectator has finished cutting the deck, turn completely around to face them, saying, "Are you finished cutting the deck?" While you say this, secretly take the bottom card - the one you memorized - and put it on top of the deck. The spectator will say yes.
Turn back around and tell the spectator, "Great. Now take a look at the top card... the card you cut to... and remember it." (Of course, this is the card that you memorized.) When they finish say, "Got it? Good. Now put the rest of the cards back on the deck." Now hand the spectator the deck.
Look deeply into their eyes and slowly reveal the card they selected (the one you memorized). This will definitely throw them for a loop!
Teacher: "Larry, if I have a dozen marbles in
one pants pocket, fifteen in the other,
and 31 in back, what do I have?"
Larry: "Very heavy pants."
