Watching magic shows is super fun, but also irritating. When you're a nerd like me, you obsess about how every trick is done. Are there magnets in that table, or is he lifting it with hidden string? Can you psychologically force someone to pick a specific number from a phone book? And when the magician reads (and totally blows) your mind and you have no idea how he did it, it's all the more annoying.
This is a true story; the sentence read from my mind was "bow ties are cool."
