-The placement system used in this Karl Fulves trick (which originally appeared as "​Stopped Twice" in his //​[[http://​​display/​13024/​Impromptu+Opener/​2|Impromptu Opener]]//, 1979, p. 2) may have been adopted from either of two sources: Theodore Annemann'​s "​Locatrik"​ in //​[[http://​​display/​15729/​The+jinx/​6|The Jinx]]//, No. 39, Dec. 1937, p. 262; or Herb Rungie'​s "​Hidden Mystery"​ in //​[[http://​​display/​15777/​Jinx+No+083/​3|The Jinx]]//, No. 83, Mar. 1940, p. 535. In //The Fine Print// No. 10 (1999) Fulves claims that the Herb Rungie effect is "​almost certainly the inspiration for Gemini Twins" and acknowledges that there has been much speculation over the history of the routine. 
-Other precursors are Ron Wohl's "​Australian Sixes" in Harry Lorayne'​s //​[[http://​​display/​20001/​Reputation+Makers/​166|Reputation-Makers]]//,​ 1971, p. 164, and Ed Marlo'​s "Ruse Cull" in //​Kabbala//,​ Vol. 1 No. 9, May 1972, p. 74.
