A Simple Magic Trick

This blog has already got funny pictures, brain teaser, dummy jokes, comics and cartoons, inspirational quotes, and weird news from around the world. It kinda bored me though, so now I want to add a new category, magic tricks. I think this can be an entertaining hobby for us, and become a part of having fun in our life.

Let's start with the simple one. Many magic or illusion actually can be described in common sense. Some other tricks also can be broke by using mathematical algorithm. Our first trick will be how to guess somebody's birth date.

Below are 5 sets of numbers arranged in 4x4 square. How about your own birth date as example? First, search your birth date in the series of square below, then make note in which sets your birth date appears?

Set 1

Set 2

Set 3

Set 4

Set 5

For example, if you born in the date of 27, then number 27 is appeared in set 1, 2, 4, and 5. Then to discover your birth date, add the top left number of the sets where your birth date appear. That means 1+2+8+16=27. Voila!

Well, sorry if this is no David Copperfield's trick, but this is only the beginning. I will be back with more complicated and fun tricks next time.

Fun or Not:

I am wondering how this magic trick is performed or where i can... to tell the secret. It ruins the fun and attraction of the trick.
