I found a cable and bike lock next to an electrical pole beside my house. As first it looked as if someone had chained their bike there and someone cut the cable to steal the bike. Then I noticed that both the cable and the lock were intact, and locked. That can mean only one thing.
A magician stole that bike.
Think about it. The bike was there, all chained up properly to the electrical pole. A magician comes along. He puts his special magic blanket over the bike. Then he whips his magic blanket away and the bike is free of the cable and lock, the cable and lock still securely attached to each other.
It’s clearly the only thing that could have happened. It’s not like someone would have just tossed their lock and cable, which must have still been good since they were still locked. Magician thieves are the only logical explanation.
