Granted, a vernacular term like "parlor trick" means different things to different people, depending on the context in which it is learned.

I believe Hank meant (and I agreed) that it was a skill of limited utility beyond impressing bystanders. It is designed to make an impression of skill (and it does - we all remember it) but it may not be the best way to do the job.

I don't think either of us meant that the "trick" was in any way deceptive or a sleight of hand.
