    They dont actually remove the card, they remove all the cards and then replace them with similar cards but with a different icon.

    ie, queen of hearts queen of spades

    thus resulting in the impression your card is gone everytime

    The final image is an image with 5 cards on, the card you choose - in your mind - without clicking anything, is always the card not shown on the final image. That's what I'm trying to work out.

    I know it's a randomise script, but how's it always show the right answer?

    Try the page out I linked above

    At first that seemed just downright freaky!!!! Looking closer it's just a trick of the eye. It replaces all the cards with the opposite but same color suit. The brain can't pick it up with the new cards being the same color.

    Hummm it's something like:

    Choose one of the numbers below:

    1 2 3 4 5

    Now look, I removed your number:

    6 7 8 9 0


    No script, no random. Only a funny trick
    Don't resist to assimilation. Billions of Borgs can't be wrong!
