Stage magic, when done well, is so very delightful and enchanting! And gives my puzzle-solving brain a good bit of distraction to chew on.

@BrianEnigma if it's the Anastasia Synn episode, she's a grinder friend of mine!


@tekniklr I remember that performance. I remember cringing at that performance! 😵

@BrianEnigma I haven't seen the show but I've seen her do the needle thing live. also, she's got more and larger magnets implanted than anyone else, afaik.
