Steven Brundage is a magician in New York. While travelling from the city back to his home upstate, police in the town of Scotia pulled him over for driving 42 MPH in a 30 MPH zone. During the stop, police noticed that he had a large number of playing cards in his car. Brundage explained that he is a magician.
The officers asked to see a magic trick. Brundage obliged, hoping that entertaining the cops would get him out of an expensive ticket. He solved a Rubik’s Cube in a few seconds, then showed the officers how he could solve a jumbled cube (or appear to do so) by throwing it over his shoulder.
