    FAKE. That boy would be seriously hurt if he was squashed that much.

    • Barry Goddard says:


      Dave has revealed the chocolates answer (22 – same as an earlier contested puzzle about using the number 2 to make 22).

      As a public service: please do not read the other replies in this post if you do not want to see the answer to the chocolate puzzle.

      There are likely too to be many tedious discussions that attempt to dissect the wording of the puzzle and come up with clever yet vacuuous answers based on misreading or claims to superior knowledge of mathematics.

      If (like most of us) you wish to try the simple pleasure of a straight-forward puzzle without all that tooing and froing just stop reading now.

    • Simon says:

      Let me get this straight. You tell people “as a public service” not to read the other replies if they don’t want to see the answer, immediately after the line where you tell them the answer? You couldn’t make this level of clownishness up. That has to be deliberate trolling.

    • Jonno says:

      Good point Simon. Looking back on past posts, most of the “tedious discussions that attempt to dissect the wording of the puzzle” and all of the “vacuuous [sic] answers based on misreading” or misunderstanding the puzzle were submitted by one B. W. Goddard.

    • Steve says:

      Agreed. It’s the height of hypocrisy. Only Goddard could have a little dig at someone for spoiling the answer further down while spoiling it himself for everyone to see.

      Class clown or ass-clown? You decide.

    • Anon says:

      To compare Barry Goddard to a Class Clown or an Ass-Clown is grossly offensive………
      to Class Clowns and Ass-Clowns.
      Please do not do this again.

    • Rick S. says:

      Haha that’s funny…

  2. Barry Goddard says:

    It is not clear that the person being grasped by the hand is the same person later released by it. It is impossible to be sure it is not a stunt performer wearing similar Burmese shorts.

    Also, the heads of the audience at the far end of the swimming pool suspiciously change position during the film.

    I suspect there is some Darren Brown type fakery going on here as there is in the OK NOW video of the other day.

  3. Alma says:

    Well – there’s obviously no “illusion” involved. As far as I can see, a huge giant hand just came from nowhere, grabbed the poor boy and slung him back into the pool. It’s one for Mulder and Scully, I’d say.

    • Anonymous says:

      I agree – maybe it escaped from Warehouse 13. Maybe Barry Goddard escaped from Warehouse 13. Maybe he should go back there.

  4. Reading these comments makes me kind of jealous: it seems you do get to view the video. For me, the picture stays frozen.

  5. ChrisR says:

    It’s effective (and fun) at full speed but apart from the discontinuity of the swimmers at the throw there’s one frame just before boy disappears with a glitch to the left of the hand…

  6. Jill Burton says:

    The only puzzle her is “What are Burmese shorts?”

  7. James Bailey says:

    My only question is: Why is there no sound here? I sent this to a friend from the original page and that has it.

  8. Mervulon says:

    Stop calling me ‘boy.’

  9. DAve says:

    22 chocolates

    • The Masked Twit says:

      Not 22/11 or 22/7 Dave?

    • Larry Stoppard says:

      Bloody hell, MT. He’s already given away the answer, don’t give away the working too.

    • Stay with us Scotland says:

      OK, if you insist

      15 chocolates bought = 15 wrappers
      15 wrappers buys 5 more chocolates and gains 5 wrappers
      5 wrappers buys 1 chocolate, leaving 2 spare and gains 1 wrapper
      2 spare wrappers + 1 wrapper buys another chocolate

      15 + 5 + 1 + 1 = 22

    • ChrisR says:

      Ah, but is “buying” the same as “”obtaining”; if you “Buy 3 get 1 free” how many have you bought?

  10. Alma says:

    Some people just have no life. Spending all their time bickering with strangers over silly puzzles and leaving comments on sites like this. Er – like me, I suppose. 🙂

  11. It depends on how many wrappers there are on each chocolate.

  12. Sofia says:

    El vídeo esta genial, se ve muy bacano.

  13. Terrence Watt says:

    No time-wasters or piss-takers, please. My question is genuine. How was the video made?

  14. Hi! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before
    but after browsing through a few of the articles
    I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m certainly happy I
    came across it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!
