Like many feats of visual trickery, the secret behind psychologist Richard Wiseman's "Tube of Mystery" boils down to a few not-so-mysterious tricks of the trade. What makes this illusion interesting, though, is how well it works even when performed badly.
The only thing more satisfying than winning money from your friends on a bet is pranking them in the process. Deep down we all want to be conmen, and Richard Wiseman is back with ten more bets that will let you outsmart anyone.
Who doesn't love free money? Nobody, that's who. And while technically Richard Wiseman's latest collection of guaranteed bets will cost you friendships, relationships, and maybe even your job, the satisfaction of one-upping everyone you know makes it still totally worth it.
There's no such thing as free money, and while this series of clever bets will all but guarantee you some easy cash, it will probably come at the cost of a few friendships.
There's no better time than the holidays—when everyone's all together—to scam, grift, and alienate your friends and family. So Richard Wiseman has returned with another series of unloseable bets that guarantee you victory thanks to basic science and physics.
