"Let 'em think youre fast79 T. Nelson Downs, quoted in The Amateur Magician's Handbook

When it comes to a deck of cards, what laypeople, particularly men, fantasize about is control over those cards. Ultimately, that means the ability to produce any card you want whenever you want. If you can demonstrate that control, you'll be remembered. If you can inject enough variety in the ways you do so, the audience will never tire of watching this fantasy played out. In this effect you decisively demonstrate your control over the cards, dramatize that control in a humorous way, and meld one male fantasy with another, (The women in the audience will love it too.)
