If magic is the art of bending reality to fit your will, I declare myself a master magician.

I just made a chocolate cake appear out of nowhere. I was just thinking, "Damn, I don't have the cash to get anything to eat, but I'm hungry."

And then the cake magically appeared at the front desk.

Well, actually, it came from the office next door, but does that mean that I didn't cause it to be the guy's birthday? I don't think so.

Good work, just think, you caused that guy to be born. And now he's achieved his life's only purpose. Good for him.

Cake episode

True. True.

A lesser magician would have scheduled the chocolate cake to arrive on his birthday. You however, cleverly avoided that simple event, and made the cake arrive when you were hungry for cake.

This evening I will be attending the International Festival and magically converting U.S. money into exotic foods.

Re: Cake episode

By the way, Thank you much for the book. I received it last night, and it has already come in handy :)

Book drop

Excellent. I will expect to read amazingly insightful discourse on the text amongst your journal pages.

And that's exactly why the skeptics will never understand magic. They're looking for reality to be broken, rather than shaped. So they smugly prove that reality isn't broken, that there were perfectly obvious and reasonable causes for the cake to appear without your help, but they can't prove that the cake wouldn't have appeared without your help.

Re: Magic

Yeah. I wonder what Joe Hern would say about that?

the question is, could you magically summon high-quality tiramisu?

Were I ever craving it, I suppose I might be able to. Why not?
