Maybe it's because I have a tiny mind, but I can't for the life of me work this out.

Go to this page:

http://www.ellusionist.com/magic_tricks_online/Magic_Tricks_theShaman.htm

And do experiment number 1

don't write anything down......do it all in your head and this thing is STILL right.

So cool!


(Ahhhhhhhh I've just worked it out! Clever!)

1. Don't have any more wine.

2. Get a calculator

3. Retry the experiment

I seriously doubt any of those who it doesn't work for are any good at arithmetic ;)

If you pick any number between 99 and 90, then the final number you get is 81 (which is a sun in my example).

If you pick any number between 89 and 80, then the final number you get is 72 (which is a sun in my example).

If you pick any number between 79 and 70, then the final number you get is 63 (which is a sun in my example).

Anyone see a pattern here ??? :)

PS .... the sun always comes up when I click on the crystal ball ;)

OK I thought I got it at first.
So I clicked the ball a few times to see if the same symbol came up. It didn't. The symbol changed each time I clicked the ball. Now, if I actually did the computation in my head the correct symbol came up. How?!?!? LOL

Let's try again. The only numbers you should arrive at are 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72 and 81. These numbers all have the same symbol, which changes each time you click. The symbols for all the other numbers never change.

Yep, any multiple of nine has the same symbol. Any number you choose will end up as a multiple of nine. easy realy.:ok:
