Here’s a site to try.  It is amazing.  I’d like to hear anyone’s thoughts as to how it works—and it does work!

Answer: Really, Lois? ALL (!) the cards have been removed, not just the one you called. Lol!

It’s a fun trick, I was taken in for a few minutes.

Might be worth removing the answer George, or putting it in white.

Okay, done. But I really don’t think it’s that hard to figure out.  smirk

I double checked the list and figured it out. Not too difficult if you are a suspicious person.

Part of the trick, was in saying that the success rate is only 98% rather than 100%, and, of course the eye choice which was unnecessary except as a distraction.

As a fabrication of our own consciousness, our assignations of meaning are no less “real”, but since humans and the fabrications of our consciousness are routinely fraught with error, it makes sense, to me, to, sometimes, question such fabrications.
