In the Name of the Serpent
Here’s a disturbing routine for Halloween: The lights are dimmed, and you open with a chant to an ancient god. Scraps of paper are mixed and laid out on the table. You begin drawing, scribbling madly, as if in a trance. A participant selects one piece of paper, and keeps it face-down. Once you have finished the drawing, the word: “serpent” is distinguishable in the lines. The selected paper is turned over, and it to reads: “serpent”. It is then shown that all the other scraps of paper are blank.
