A little less than a happy high
Consider yourself told

In my high school days of being the supervillain The Neferious Doctor Squid, my RoboSquid outfit had a cloaking device built into it. It was a little flap that I could lift, revealing a sign that read "Shut Your Eyes."

Luckily, RetroBoy, Squid's arch-foe, was blindingly stupid.

Good times, good times.

I remember a time when the boffer community didn't have a magic system beyond, "If you can convince someone else that it's happening, it does." It became a kind of improvisational performance art where making people laugh hard enough got them to bend to the reality that you were selling them.

A sign that read "shut your eyes" would probably have worked in that system, as would calling upon the powers of the great "Googily Moogily" and doing a little dance.

Falling down a lot helped, too.
