Richard and the number trick

Richard Wiseman has another amazing trick for us today.

It surprised me and I had to try it out straight away. So it might well surprise your colleagues, family or friends.

Watch Richard’s very short and sweet video clip on YouTube.

“You live in a single-storey house made “entirely of redwood”. What colour would the stairs be?”         Answer: What stairs? You live in a house with one storey!

Richard and another amazing bet

Richard Wiseman is back with another amazing bet. In this YouTube video, he’ll show you how to place 15 threads through the eye of a needle within 30 seconds. Again, it’s so easy when you know how.  

A riddle …

“What has many keys, but can’t open a single door?”       Answer: a piano

Richard and the magical napkin

Here’s another bet you might like to try with your family, friends or colleagues. All you need is a square napkin and a marker pen. And to get going, watch Richard Wiseman (link to: YouTube) explain how it works. It’s so easy when you know how, isn’t it?

A little bit of fun

“I’ve got some good advice for you. When going for a job interview, tell the interviewers that you’re willing to give 110 per cent. Unless, of course, the job you’re applying for has something to do with statistics!” 🙂

How to make objects invisible

I remember reading the book “The Invisible Man” and dreaming of becoming invisible. It seems that a lot of other people have been dreaming the same. Perhaps you have, too. Richard Wiseman (link to: YouTube) shows us how to make objects invisible. So perhaps our dreams will come true one day. 😉  

Is this your ambition, too?

My biggest professional ambition is to get a desk where no one can see my computer monitor but me. 😉

Do you know these people?

There are two kinds of people who don’t say much: those who are quiet and those who talk a lot. 😉
