Fate is a strange Magician

You may (or may not) have noticed my absence from the blog yesterday- well, it wasn't without good reason!

Yesterday I was down at the CTV studios witnessing some history in the making- master of memory, David Farrow set a new Guinness World Record for memory recall by memorizing 59 decks of cards which had been shuffled together and repackaged, and successfully remembered them in order, over approximately a nine hour period.

David Farrow, with the help of Scott Dietrich (one of the Magicians that works with us) recalled over 3000 cards consecutively, and with only one minor mistake. It took David about four days to memorize the cards, despite the fact that he has both ADD and dyslexia. He's living proof that we can overcome even the most difficult of learning disabilities.

I'll probably post more about it later.
