Four Fantastic Tricks to Fool Your Friends
Baffle your friends and have a good laugh. Learn these hilarious tricks and try it out on them!
Train Ride Arithmetic Trick
Got an intelligent, nerdy friend that you want to trick? Begin by commenting on his or her math skills (this is optional, but more likely to fool!). Next, tell your friend this: a train leaves New York for New Jersey, carrying 20 passengers. When it arrives at New Jersey, 5 people gets off and 10 gets on. (You can actually use any number or destination you want.)
Give your friend some time to think and calculate…
Next, tell your friend that the train heads for Massachusetts, at which, say… 12 people gets off and 7 gets on (again, any numbers are fine). Continue giving as many new destinations as you want, but it is suggested you give about 5-10 destinations in total. Remember to let your friend think at each stop. After all that, your friend would have been busy calculating how many people are on the train at each point. All you have to do now is ask, “How many times did the train stop?”
Four Wrong Answers
Want to win some quick cash? Bet your friend that he or she cannot answer four questions WRONG; if your friend answers any of your questions correctly, you win the bet!
Ask simple, straightforward questions such as “How old are you?” and “Where do you live?”. The friend should be giving wrong answers. Go through three questions like this, but on the final question, act puzzled and ask, “Wait, that was three questions so far… right?”
If your acting is good and you look genuinely confused, your friend will hopefully answer “yes” without thinking — and there is the fourth question answered correctly and you win the bet!
One bet not enough for you? This time, bet that you can make your friend say the word “black”. Ask your friend what the three colors of the American flag are. The friend would, of course, reply with “red white and blue”. Then, quickly say something along the lines of “Ha, I made you say blue; I win the bet!” Your confused friend would now reply, “What? Wasn’t it supposed to be black…?”
There you go. You have now just won the bet.
Have your friend say the word “white” loudly, ten times, but tell him or her to make each one louder than the previous one. When they finish, ask very quickly: ”WHAT-DOES-A-COW-DRINK?”
In response, your friend would probably answer “milk”! That’s right, milk! Cows don’t drink milk, so go make fun of your friend for being so foolish.
But seriously now, why would your friend say milk? Well, first of all, it’s because your friend has the word “white” clogged in his or her mind. Second, you threw that question at your friend so fast that all he/she could do was to answer it quickly, and without thinking, as well!
