Has anyone ever tried the trick to see if it actually works? (I can't recall how clear the description of it was).

@sequesterednooks - no I haven't but I believe that author Penny Warner has people demonstrate this during her ND Guide talks and did so at one of our conventions--I think it was probably at Pasadena and the one in PA. And it seemed to work if I recall.
