Reason #2453 Not To Mug Magicians

On Friday, BoingBoing linked to a great story about some kids mugging magician David Copperfield. Copperfield used sleight-of-hand to hide the items in his pockets:

The assistants handed over money and a cellphone, but the illusionist turned his pockets inside out to reveal nothing, although he was carrying his passport, wallet and cell phone.

So I guess sometimes obscurity can be security.
