    He should have then pickpocketed the robbers. That would have been awesome.

    What he should of done is: Appear to hand his wallet over to the theif, than make it dissapear, than have the theif take his shoe off to find the theifs drivers licenes in the shoe. The theif would of been so stunned, Copperfield could of gotten away, or the Theif would of shot him. Either way, it's a win. [​IMG]

    While there are aspects of this story I find amusing, my mirth is tempered by the fact that I work (and park) two blocks from where this happened! [​IMG] Also, one of my co-workers moonlights at that theater.

    The funny thing is the Kravis is part of this major downtown gentrification and slum clearance project, but a block or two from the rebuilt shopping, dining and tourist area are derelict buildings, crumbling 50 year old government offices maintained on a shoe-string because new structures are "planned and approved" but constantly delayed, a ratty bus and train terminal and all of the winos, addicts and street people that go with such an area.

    Copperfield got off easy. [​IMG]

    Regards,

    Joe

    Why didn't he make the punks disappear? [​IMG] He can make the statue of Liberty vanish but not a couple of assholes trying to rob him?

    In all seriousness, he took a chance by doing that, if those guys were serious they could have pulled off a damn good trick of their own...they could have made his life disappear.

    Yeah, he could have simply held up his hand and halted the bullets in mid-air like Neo in The Matrix.

    "Yeah, he could have simply held up his hand and halted the bullets in mid-air like Neo in The Matrix."

    ......or he could simply avoid having to do this by making the gun dissappear. [​IMG]

    Wait John... what are you saying? David Copperfield doesn't have magic powers? How can that be true? He made a dove appear out of thin air.

    Of course he has real magic powers. How else could that skinny dweeb hook up with Claudia Schiffer?

    last night on Conan:
    'after showing the thieves he had nothing in his pockets, they ran off - not because they wanted to make a quick getaway, but because they couldn't stand to watch another David Copperfield magic act' [​IMG]

    I wonder if it was just outside the theater. Wouldn't he have some type of security there?

    Luckily for Copperfield and his assistants, someone had already made the thieves' brains disappear.
