I can't stand magicians who have that attitude. The fun behind a magic trick is explaining the slight of hand or trying to figure out how the trick works. If you go to YouTube, the masked magician series breaks down a lot of the big name basic magician tricks like sawing a person in half, levitating, etc.Most "magician" types I've met are very strange people. Some of them are atheist, some of them give me weird quirky vibes, and I am aware that they have at least one invitation-only secret society in the USA.
That is much more fun. I wish there was a magician who would shows and then break down how he did the tricks. Alas, we have this hackery, "I HaZ pOwErS" chauvinism.
