Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Arguably the most popular UK magician, Derren Brown has just finished a sold-out live tour, including a stay in London lasting over a month, and is now embarking on a series of four specials, under the heading of 'The Events'. He's been working on them for over a year.
An hour-long show on Friday 11th September showed how he allegedly did it. He provided two explanations, neither of which seem very plausible (for the record, they were rigging the machine with a set of six heavier balls, and using the 'Wisdom of Crowds' method to predict the numbers). These 'solutions' are unsatisfying at best, and a little insulting at worst. It should be noted that, of course, at no time did he reveal the numbers ahead of time; the smart money is therefore on getting the numbers on the balls after the draw and before he turns around the stand. There seems to be a reasonable consensus that the method used was that demonstrated in this video.
