Basic Effect

Any sheet of newspaper is torn into small squares (approximately 2" x 2"). These are given to a lady to mix up. When she has mixed them, she is requested to select any piece, at random. She is asked to take the piece of newspaper in her right hand, to close her eyes and turn her back on the performer, so that he cannot possibly see the paper.

The performer then instructs the lady that, when he counts to three, she is to open her eyes, look at a word and then to immediately close them. This she does. The mentalist then exhorts her to concentrate on the word, which he proceeds to reveal in a fittingly dramatic manner.
