Couldn't the problem of scalar type conversion be solved with parse time wrapper objects like JavaScript uses? That would solve the syntactical issue without actually change the types.

I love how when the grand finale of the trick plays out, Teller jumps out of his chair and offers a standing ovation. He was THAT impressed.
Terrific card trick on ITV's "Fool Us" with Penn & Teller.

I love this show! Magicians perform a trick in front of P&T. If they can't figure out how it was done, the magician gets a free trip to Las Vegas to appear in their stage show.

Good reality/talent shows from the UK almost always make think about how a US network would have completely screwed it up. "Fool Us" is about a talented magician performing in front of two other talented musicians, with an experienced, established host who knows when to be a catalyst and when to shut up.

The US edition would have a panel of "celebrity" judges, consisting of two utter dimwits who are just happy to be getting $5000 an episode, and one real magician who's been cast as the killjoy by the producers and who isn't allowed to show his appreciation for the real craft that's being demonstrated onstage.

The performer would have family members in the front row. Producers would craft a story arc for everybody. Each performance would be preceded with a video of the performer's hard-luck story, and how he's been struggling, and how supportive his family has been, and how sick the little kid is, and...et cetera.

And rather than giving the performers the satisfaction and dignity of doing their best work in front of a large audience, the dimwit judges wouldn't let them leave without tearfully telling them that they're the best magicians in the world and they're going to be huge stars and God Bless you for...

Finally: the host would be Howie Mandel, only moreso.

(Sorry, sorry. I stopped watching network shows like this years ago but I still haven't recovered fully from the horrors of the first season of "America's Got Talent".)

Oh snap, it's finally out!?
I may actually not be on G+ for the next 39 hours if I decide to make this purchase. Is it worth it? see photo! (Btw, my first mobile share! go Android!)

After much cajoling from the internet I started watching the new My Little Pony series. Having now finished it, I'm absolutely obsessed. Brony 4 Life!

I'm surprised G+ doesn't automatically connect with my YouTube account and show my videos...
