Yesterday I posted a new video on YouTube.  The video contains ten bets that you will always win.  I was amazed and delighted to see that it went viral and had over 1 million hits in less than 24 hours.  Thank you so much for watching.  If you haven’t seen the video, here it is….

Which was your favourite?


  1. They’re good but I have an even better dead certainty – I bet you that in the next month Richard will post a poorly worded Friday Puzzle and an incorrect answer.

  2. Dude, that’s plagiarism. Refer: scam school, of Revision 3 Internet TV. His vids have been up for years.

  3. The first two are the best. I can verify that the money-on-bottle one works even with Australian (plastic) money. I haven’t tried the paperclip one because I don’t own any paperclips, but it looks very effective too.

  4. You forgot how add how to win at the “tearing the paper into three pieces” challenge. The trick is to hold the middle strip in your mouth and then pull the other two strips. You will be left with three strips. Thanks to Don Herbert, (Mr. Wizard) for that one.

  5. What if two people have both seen the “bets you will always win” video, and bet against each other? Is it like an immoveable object and an irresistible force?

    1. If they’ve both seen it and bet against each other, than one of them is a moron who agreed to a bet he knows in advance he’s going to lose.

  6. Some great old classics there. I think we’ve all amazed a kid in our family with one of these…or even been the kid amazed by them.

    FYI, never try the last one in a bank. they get slightly tetchy.

  7. I got this site from my friend who informed me about this web site and now this time I am browsing this website and reading very informative articles or
    reviews here.

  8. Hey my math teacher showed me a trick game where whoever knows the trick won’t lose. I wanted to see if you could help me figure it out. There are three rows of paperclips. In one row there are three, in the second row there are four, and in the third row there are five. The objective of the game is to not be the one to pick up the last paperclip. You take turns back and forth and you may pick up as many paperclips as you want from either row, as long as all of the ones you pick up are in the same row. For example if I go first I can take all three of the paperclips in the first row or just take one. The teacher said that it is impossible to beat her twice in a row and that the trick is easy and you would feel stupid once you knew it. She said you have to know three things but she won’t tell me. Can you figure it out? Or do you know it already?
