How many fingers am I holding behind my back? What number am I picturing in my head? To ''mind read'' your friends and astound them with it, use this simple trick. You need a deck of cards, but you have to put the four sixes on top of it before the trick. When you start your performance, put the first four cards in a pile on the table, faced down (these are the sixes), then put the next six cards on another pile next to it in the same way. Tell the audience (or the victim) that you will read his mind and see which pile he will chose. Then write on a piece of paper ''you chose the six pile''. Tell him to pick a pile and show him the note (or ask someone else to read it). You will be right which ever pile he picked, because he could either choose the pile with the sixes in it or the pile with the six (random) cards.
