Impaled (illusion) is within the scope of WikiProject Magic, which aims to build a comprehensive and detailed guide to magic on Wikipedia.

Many magic secrets are closely guarded. In accordance with Wikipedia guidelines, only those with reliable and cited sources can be included in Wikipedia articles. If a secret cannot be verified through independent sources, it will be removed from the main article. Any "secret" revealed on this talk page may not be accurate; it may be speculative, erroneous, or even deliberately deceptive.
A minor edit war seems to have broken out over this. I'm aware of a history of conflict between people keen to post methods for magic tricks and certain magicians, who vehmently oppose any publication of methods. I've tried to maintain a neutral (or at least balanced) position between the two sides and I was partly responsible for developing WP:Magic Methods and Exposure, which seems to have reduced the amount of edit warring over this matter. I re-instated the method in this article because a credible source was provided, in which case Wikipedia policy favours inclusion. Circusandmagicfan (talk) 09:30, 3 July 2008 (UTC)Circusandmagicfan
