There's nothing quite like taking advantage of the drunk, or the stupid, or the drunk and stupid. And these bets are, if not the best way to do that, at least one of the most amusing. Weird-trick extraordinaire Richard Wiseman is back with another collection of "bar" bets you can't lose, and they're just as technically-something-you-might-get-away-with as ever.

As clever as some of them are, they're not exactly the kind of thing you'd want bring up to the burly, rowdy sportsfan in the corner. So please, consider restraining yourself to using them to con small children and simpletons into doing their (or your) chores. That's a gold mine all its own. [Quirkology]
