The beauty of math and numbers and formulas and equations and so forth is that they can work without you ever understanding how the hell they work. What seems like complete randomness is actually just a math problem! Like this slick trick with a deck of cards. Take twenty or so cards and flip over five cards face side…
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.
From Quirkology's Richard Wiseman comes another roundup of pub tricks that you can use to impress and/or vex your friends.
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.
Need an excuse to go play with matches? Too bad, you're getting one anyway. Turns out if you place a couple matches up against each other just right and then light them on fire (duh), you can actually perform a crazy little levitation trick!

We say "almost," because like many of the bets in Richard Wiseman's earlier bar-trick videos, a few of these are liable to get you punched in the face. (I'm looking at you, #4. Ten to ten? Really?)
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 …

A man named Chris Laporte beat me at Street Fighter five times in a row. The stakes were that if he won, I would write a post about him. I might have been a little (a lot) drunk when I entered into this agreement—especially because I don't really think there was a prize in it for me if I won—but a deal's a deal.

Particle colliding is the new dog racing. Stephen Hawking bet against the LHC discovering the Higgs-Boson, and now you can get in on the action too.
