I remember when I was a kid and magic was the shit. Like, hyping up about going to my mate's birthday party 'cos his mum had hired a magician and was going to pull a bunny from a hat - that's the stuff dreams were made of.
Unfortunately, I'm 24 and over-enthusiasm for magic tricks generally makes people uncomfortable. So, I try my utmost to keep my excitement to a minimum.
I also wholeheartedly blame David Blaine for the British public's lack of enthusiasm in magic. His Channel 4 show got people excited but his endurance crap was dull as hell.
Fair play for doing it but I can't say it did anything for me... or my dad, who had to sit in two hours of traffic in central London just so I could see David Blaine do nothing in a box for a bit.
Street magicians are where it's at - card tricks, magical illusions with every-day objects, you know. And given their sleight of hand and need for the most precise of movements of objects, you'd think being able to see is a pre-requisite for performing a trick.
You'd be thinking wrong.
This is Adam Jaslikowski, otherwise known as Justin Sight, who performs his incredible tricks around New York City even though he's legally blind.
Check this bad boy out...
Adam, 26, said: "Ironically, even though I am legally blind, I am incredibly drawn to high-impact visual magic - the kind of stuff that simply looks impossible as it is happening."
Fair play, lad. I don't know what the fuck happened to those cards. Anyone with an explanation is more than welcome to chime in...
