    Great trick, fantastic video. When is your dad setting a record for Fastest Time to Close Window Blinds? ;-)

      The volunteer from the audience is a longtime friend (a retired university math professor who's mentored me intellectually and spiritually since before my teenage years, actually). My father isn't in the video. I'm sure he'd be flattered to know that our relationship is comparable to that between a father and son, though! ;)
