Avoiding Boredom

I have a lot of plane travel happening on Wednesday. I went to the used bookstore today, and purchased some inexpensive books that may or may not interest me (very old science fiction and theology by famous yet unfamiliar people are both rather hit-and-miss).

Then I watched a David Copperfield video, tonight while waiting for my wife to finish something. And I had a great idea. A little bit of web searching produced a website with 72 easy card tricks. It only took a few minutes to copy-and-paste them to PDA memos. Now I can practice these in the airport and perhaps on the plane as well. I've never done card tricks before, but I should at least be able to learn a few well enough to entertain children.
