Brain scanNOTE: Since this coming Sunday is Christmas, I will be spending that day with my loved ones, and there will be no post that day. Happy Holidays!

I've spent much of the year teaching you about memory feats, and making you work and think.

It's the holiday season now, and it's time to relax. So, for a change, sit back, relax, and watch other perform the types of feats I've discussed on this site!

If you'd like to get an idea of how different performers present the same effect, compare the above performance to Nick Morton's magazine memory act here.

We'll round out this post with a memory act you may or may not have the stomach to watch. What do you get when you cross a memory feat with a nail gun? Naturally, you get Penn & Teller:
