Need more drinks at the bar, but you're out of cash? The tricks in this video will con any poor drunk out of their money, and you'll be laughing all the way to the bartender. Anyone who isn’t inebriated, though, will likely catch on to what you’re trying to do and ruin the game. As such, even in the most ideal of circumstances, I don’t see anyone actually winning money from these “bets.”
Take the dollar bet. Yeah, I would think that guy's pretty clever, but there’s no way I wouldn’t smell something like that coming the minute he got money involved. On the flip side, say I tried this bet on someone? I believe the right person would kick my ass for trying to pull one over on them!
So let’s just say I’m doing it for shits and giggles. The world is going to think I’m creepy or impeccably boring unless I’m one of two demographics. I could be a young kid, or an old man. A guy in his mid twenties pulling these shenanigans is either a creep, dweeb, or a wise ass. All titles I do not wish to be associated with.
EVEN SO…I doubt I could correctly perform the majority of these. The mint in a bottle one in particular looks like it was achieved in more than one shot. With so many variables on the way the ring could be pulled away I doubt this trick can be accomplished consistently. Then if I fail, I become the guy who challenges all these people and ultimately looks like a jackass when I can’t do it.
I’m not necessarily dissuading you from trying these tricks, however. If you think you can shoot out a white disc from between three black discs, you have right at it. I just don’t know if you want to live the life of the man who’s always running around making sneaky bets. 300 years ago, that man would’ve made a fortune in a port harbor, now he’s lucky to be living under the bridge! Aside from advocating a lifestyle of cheap parlor trickery, it was an overall solid video from Quirkology.
