A relic of the 80s/90s before the marks wised up to the fact that you don't get that big without roids: Christian Muscle Ministries. I saw one of these at an Assemblies of God church in the late 80s. Might have been Strike Force or Power Team. It is what you would expect. Guys doing old magic tricks but with big roid fueled muscles and then taking a "love offering" at the end of the show to fund their "ministry".

Check out some of those feats that Shaolin Monks have been using to con rubes since before photography existed. Ye olde "break through blocks that have spacers between them" is a fun one.

I recall an old story about some crank "Kung Fu Master" from the seventies known as Danny Pi. Some old martial artist attended one of his performances. He decided to break stacked--with no spacers!!--blocks of ice. As one of them who has a lot of experience with "flim flam" explained you make sure the audience can only see the front of the ice.

If you take a hot wire and precut the ice then stick them back together, you can look straight through parallel to the cut. If you are able to see down the ends--perpendicular to the cut--you cannot see through the ice. It looks weird.

So Danny climbs up and starts his routine of heavy breathing and slow practice palm-heel strikes . . . until as he raised his hand the ice suddenly collapsed right there.

Silence.

For a moment.

Then one of his flunkies screamed, "VIBRATING PALM!!!"

He got a standing ovation.

You can even see the cuts because of the air bubbles in the ice.
