Just for mathematical simplicity.. imagine a magician had two decks of cards but each deck only has 50 cards.. for a total of 100 cards.
If the magician took a look at all 100 cards and removed one, and then presented you with the remaining 99, I'm sure you would not feel that the magician was forcing a card on you.
If the magician took a look at all 100 cards and removed 5 cards, and then presented you with the remaining 95, I'm sure you would not feel that the magician was forcing a card on you.
If the magician took a look at all 100 cards and removed 70 cards, and then presented you with the remaining 30, I'm sure you would not feel that the magician was forcing a card on you.
HOWEVER if that magician took a look at all 100 cards, and removed 99 of them.. would you say that the magician forced a card on you?

I have a very real reason for presenting this poll.. please respond to it even though you may think it is a silly poll.  I will explain in a few days.

I feel you're setting up a metaphor. I played several scenarios in my head, so I'm curious how you're going to spin this.

I'll give the slow-pokes one more day to vote.   When I post part two.. I hope that you will see my point and agree with it.

Mentalism is the practice of using the way people naturally act and manipulation. 

Most magic requires manipulation.  Usually this comes in using distraction tactics.

yes.. but as I will explain tomorrow.. this has nothing to do with magic.. but everything to do with manipulation. 
I will add a little more information though.. In the real life situation I will refer to, it was not 99 out of 100 being eliminated (99%) but 1584 out of 1600 being eliminated (which is still 99%).   This will make more sense tomorrow...
