FAST Riddle #25 bingo

James Ertner
 

The continuing-with-the-German-theme FAST Riddle #25

 

At what speed did a famous German magician make an arrangement with the devil?

 

Stan, Lars, Gary H, and Charles correctly answered, but it was Stan who was the Faust (I mean, first) to know that the German magician didn’t make the arrangement slowly but very FAUST.

 

Thanks to the quartet of punsters for playing.

 

Jim

Another public guess, Lars?

But no matter--Jim and I both guessed it already, Jim ahead of me, as GH recently announced, so no harm done.

But you've got an itchy trigger finger there, my friend.

Back in the late 1960’s Steve McQueen was preparing for his career-defining role as a high caliber detective with the enigmatic name. Upon reading the script he realized that he was going to be required to do some very fast and dangerous driving and began to wonder if he was up to the task. To prepare himself for the automotive stunts to come, he took a trip to Japan where he spent many long hours riding to and fro on their high-speed rail system. What did he call this exercise?
