   Well done, but not the way I wrote it up or perform it. There's no selection involved in my original. It's a "startler" because it's a 1-2-3-4 instant action from a shuffled deck that produces the four aces. Anyway...

   Yes, Waterman, his performance absolutely makes me proud. And thanks for all "them kind words" above, guys.  Incidentally - let me clarify...if you read my write-up/explanation of Startler in JAW DROPPERS you'll see that I teach it without the selection of a card - the way I've done it for decades.
     But then, as an "afterthought," I wrote - "But you may prefer..." and I teach it starting with a selected card - exactly as magicfish performs it above - and which he does beautifully - Thanks magicfish. (So sorry that I wasn't clear at first - the mind "ain't" working the way it used to work!)"

Thank you very much for the clarification and the compliment Mr. Lorayne- you've made my day.
I'm honoured to be able to talk to you about your material- which is my favourite material.
I will continue to strive to do it justice, sir.
Thanks again.
