So i really recomend not doingthis cuz it would be stealing and depending on your beleifs, morrally wrong. If you do do
it i dont like you any more.
But lets say your on the streets, after your performance whip out a empty match box and ask a spectator for a twenty. Take their twenty and place it in the match box, then take a twenty of your own and place it in there as well. Then offer to sell the entire match box with the $40 inside for only $30. Sounds like a good Deal right. In reality you end up making a $10 profit and they end up loosing $10.
If you do do this, i hope that you end up getting beat up by the person because the discover what you did to them. I just wanted to post this cuz i read it somewhere and thought it was pretty funny. I did it to my Bro but he thought i was doing a magic trick and his money would disapear when i gave the box to him in exchange for the 30.
Haha. You said do-do.
Well I know for sure that many people will fall for the matchbox swindle.
It's sort of like this:
Tell somebody you want to do an awareness test. Ask a few simple questions, like, "What color are my eyes?" and close your eyes. Ask, "Without looking, how many times are your laces crossed?"
Stuff like that. Then, take their wrist in your left hand, and run one finger lightly across their palm (with your other hand, of course). Ask "How long did it take for my finger to cross your palm?"
FINALLY, (while STILL HOLDING THEIR WRIST WITH YOUR LEFT HAND), put your RIGHT index finger an inch from their nose, and ask, "Am I touching you?"
Of course, they will say no, but then you just have them look down at their wrist, which is still resting in your left hand! Of course you are still touching them! Works every time.
The same principle goes for the matchbox; it just depends on where the audience's focus is.
