 2   riddles / what am i / Card Magician: A Trick  Apr 16th, 2021, 7:16am 
Started by alien2 | Last post by alien2
There is a deck consisting of 52 unmarked cards, arranged in a line and placed face-down on a small round table. The magician tells a random spectator from the audience, both sitting on chairs at the table, that he picks one, any card of his choice, making sure he doesn’t show him the card. As it turns out it is the king of spades. The magician knew right away what card the spectator picked. But how?

Yes. And no regarding something other than a nickel. It's the same hand in "both" cases.

That would make it a lot easier, yes. I mean, it gives away 86% of the answer.

I am baffled and bedazzled, as always. Still, I am convinced that you nailed it, in your own way.

Very nice.  
 
Any ideas about the intended answer where a mirror is literally a mirror?

All that is very interesting. Even though I am undoubtedly spellbound, not at all what I had in mind. Although science can save us, and destroy us, perhaps more along the lines of Tolkien's riddles is what is needed here. If anything, if there is someone who can provide multitude of answers, it is evident who that is.  
 
That puts my seven ideas in perspective, eh?

Sounds good.  
 
Well, if one'd like to nitpick, for this or that reason, in that case the intended answer would be slightly different, a batter.
 
I wish you all the best in this, hopefully, happier year.

I did the calculations and I arrived at 89grams approx. For 100 microns approx 160grams, but cost is 3-4x, which means, as you said, it must use a  MUCH larger amount of current over a much longer period of time.
 
I wonder how much and how much longer...

 
It might not be more than a proportional increase in current/time for the plating - it might be that the 56 micron plating is the standard process, so they can do it in batches of a hundred items, while the 100 micron coating is much rarer, so they need to do a separate run for each item, meaning all the overhead has to be covered by that item's charge.
 
Or it could be a combination of the two possibilities.
 
Or it could simply be luxury pricing - that there's minimal practical difference between 56 micron and 100 micron, but, because 100 micron has more prestige, they can increase its perceived value by adding an additional surcharge to it.
