Try staring at a group of people your sitting with and know very well. Then pretend they're all complete strangers and you've never seen them before. This gets pretty freaky.

If you can, Twist your tongue upside down. If you can't, try and twist your whole mouth around your tongue. With a bit of practice you may get it. DO NOT try and grab your tongue and flip it. IT WILL NOT WORK. It will feel as if your teeth are flipping over.
Once this is done, gently bite your tongue too hold it upside down(it will be hard to do without biting and if you can't quite get your tongue upside down it helps push it the extra bit). Then touch either side of your tongue. It will feel as if you are touching the opposite sides of your tongue.
Try touching it with your fingernail. You will realise how smooth yor nail really is.

take a 2 liter bottle of soda. drink it all. cut the bottle in half. put the cap on and cut a small hole in the top of it. now take a plastic box thats bigger than the bottle, possibly a small bathroom trash can. submerge the open end of bottle in the water. notice how if you pull up on the bottle, the outside air is pulled into the bottle. this will aid you in certain things throughout your college career.

This works best if you are at a crowded place full of people who are talking. Listen to a person talking. You can't quite hear what they are saying. If you focus on something else but listen to the person, it sounds like they are talking in a different language! It's hilarious.

This is fun for tricking kids (adults too?) into thinking your cracking your nose. Especially effective if you really can crack several joints first. Cover your mouth and nose by putting both hands directly up to your face, as if you were sneezing. Make sure your nose and mouth are completely covered by your hands. Curl your thumbs up underneath, making sure they're hidden from view by your palms. "Twist" your nose side-to-side with your hands while clicking your thumbnails over the ends of your top front teeth, and you'll make a great "crack" noise in the hollow of your mouth and palms. It sounds like you're cracking your nose loudly. "Ahhh... that felt great!"

write in universal code:

cn'at you raed tihs???
(cant you read this???)





not really
but the more you read a word the easier it is to understand that code

(if you havent figured it out)
the code is to keep the first and last letter of every word the same while scrambling the rest of them.

after reading a word enough times, the human brain memorized it...by its first and last letter...or something like that...

Would you like an integrated spam filter in your brain? Here is how to do it:
Whenever you see an ad you don't want to look at (a billboard, poster, internet banner etc.), tell yourself it's a spam and command your eyes not to see it. Imagine blank gray rectangle instead of it or just look elsewhere. After some practice you will notice that your eyes/brain ignore ads almost automatically, not needing any will or concentration. Enjoy the spamless world!

I discovered this vision circuit feature when I realized that I ignore all animated rectangular images on the internet and even all the little text boxes with links under them, looking like Google ads, but certainly not ads... false alerts are the only drawback of this method :-].

I'm still working on a way to block audio spam, but it's much more difficult :-/.

Eye tricks

Close your eyes and push your palms against your eyes. After a few seconds you will see a tunnel vision type of effect, when you let go you will be blind for a couple of seconds.

Stare at a spot on a wall and try not to look away, eventually things in your peripheral vision will start disappearing.

Ok so get a bottle of water, and put it in the freezer laying on its side for about 1 hour and 30 min. Its not frozen when you look at it right? Then take the bottle out and tap the top of it. It instantly freezes and turns into a slushie-like matter. (: fun, huh?

When there's some public race held in your town (running, bicycles, inline skating or this stuff), sneak on the track somewhere and be first to hit the finish line. It's very funny to watch people's expressions when you tell them you are just hurrying to work and why the hell are they blocking your road ;-).

Around here we call this STAR TRIPPING.
(I don't know if this is already said, but it's great!)

At night, when there is a clear sky, and you can see the stars clearly, get a group of friends, and a flashlight and go somewhere in the grass or somewhere soft. Then make a circle and choose someone to be in the middle and another person to have a flashlight. Make the person stare straight upand pick ONE star to stare at and spin 10 times around. when they're done spinning shine the flashlight in their eyes and they FALL.

This is super funny!

make sure it's completely dark so that when the person is dizzy and used to the DARKNESS the flashlight will stun them to their knees!
have fun (:

Want to have an extra hand? This is a cool trick borrowed from Discover Magazine's section that used to exist called NeuroQuest. Bend a clotheshanger into basically a "Y"-shape with the bottom being the hook. Now flip it upside down. Take one hand, and tap the other hand with the clotheshanger keeping it out of sight, while bouncing it at the same time on a picture of a hand, a quarter, a movie ticket, etc. but in your plane of view. It should begin to feel like it is part of you. Now stab that object with a pencil. You may break out in a cold sweat, because the part of your brain that deals with fear gets sent information from your motor cortex that what has just been stabbed was part of you. This will release adrenaline and other compounds making you flinch.

I've got two:
(1)Go to a festival that's downtown, you and your accomplice start looking at the top of a building, standing still. Before you know it, you will see many other people looking at the same thing, although not knowing what it is.
(2)I have an audio spectrum analyzer with a pink noise generator, and sometimes I like to make a friend put on headphones and listen to the pink noise at a high level. After a couple of minutes, they begin to imagine familiar sounds like the doorbell, telephone or a particular phrase...almost like their brain is trying to make sense of the randomness.

Something fun today is to imagine your internal voice speaking in someone's voice. Works best if its a friend's voice. After a while it gets really freaky when you can't get it to stop.

Works best when you are tired

This is something I used to think about when I was a teenager:
Why should there exist anything in the first place? Wouldn't it make perfect sense if there had been no universe at all and simply said nothing ever happened? Just thinking about this for a while will blow your mind.

Odd Motion Effect

This is Awesome.

For this you need a strobe light and a friend. At night, close all your blinds and don't let any light in your room. Now, turn on the strobe light so it is going at about a flash every 0.5 seconds, maybe slower. Now move around and wave your hand, watch your friend, it's insane. Now, walk towards a wall, and before you know it, BOOM! Right in your face, it's Weird. Entertains for quite a while, I do this with my friend all the time.

If you are in the front passenger seat of a car, look at the surface on the road in front of you while going pretty fast. You should be able to catch an instant of the grains of the road at the point you are focusing on. However, notice that all around it looks like streaks of an explosion. (the explosion is lengthened in the direction towards you)

Also, in order to catch certain fast moving objects quickly, close your eyes as soon as the event has occured. The last vision will remain a little longer and not be replaced as it would normally, allowing you to see that particular "snapshot" more clearly.

OMG what I really want to see on youtube is an optical computer made from an overhead fan plus the reflective surface of a spoon Depending what part of the spoon you are looking at the rotations seem to have different frequency

That kind of suggests that a spoon reflecting a spoon reflecting a fan could create additive frequencies n do computations http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leI7sfmipuI

theres a multiply loud way to snap you fingers

just place L thumb on the pad underneath your first finger; diagonal thumb across palm like / then snap right hand fingers normally

I found this out accidentally when I thought people with castanets were just using only their fingers doing a two handed move

Invisible wall sensation:
Put your hands together as if in imitation of prayer then separate your palms so that only the top parts of your fingers (but not the actual tips) are still pressed together. While pushing them against each other slightly, start slowly moving your fingers up and down, bending them where they join your palm. After a few second of doing this, you get the sensation that your pressing against a wall or something instead of your fingers. Trying to type after doing this for a while is awkward.

Lie in bed surrounded by complete silence. There should be no extraneous noises to distract you.
Now, think of something funny and smile. Force yourself to squint your eyes and laugh. Feel your chest constrict because the thing you're thinking of is so funny. Remember a sensation of absolute hilarity. Force yourself to feel it. This is the best joke you've ever heard. Your friend has just spilled pudding on themselves and you cannot help from giggling, no seizing in laughter at their silly mistake. They're laughing too. You both are rolling the floor it's so funny.
Keep forcing yourself to smile and laugh and smile and squint and giggle. Eventually, you'll just keep laughing, unable to stop.
And tonight, you will have incredibly memorable dreams.

What I like to do is to look at a far-away object, and adjust my perspective and imagine the object to just be really tiny and close up. Pretty soon it actually looks really tiny. You can do it to people too and it's hilarious, and what's more, there's no obvious external signs, so it's just your little secret.

Take a penny that is turning dark in color. Go to Taco Bell and pour the "mild" taco sauce on the penny...let it sit there for a few minutes and then begin to wipe off the sauce with a napkin. The penny looks like new! Imagine what that taco sauce is doing to your insides.

Squeeze a penny through the mouth of a clear balloons. Make sure that the penny goes all the way into the balloon so that there is no danger of it being sucked out while blowing up the balloon. Blow up the balloon. When properly inflated, the balloon will be almost clear in the middle and cloudy at area near the neck and at the end opposite the neck. The cloudiness at the ends is unstretched latex, which provides stress relief. If the balloon is completely clear, all over, it is over inflated. Tie off a balloon and you?re ready to go. Grip the balloon at the stem end as you would a bowling ball. The neck of the balloon will be in your palm and your fingers and thumb will extend down the sides of the balloon. While holding the balloon, palm down, swirl it in a circular motion. The penny may bounce around at first, but it will soon begin to roll around the inside of the balloon. The best orbit or path for the coin is one parallel to the floor. Once the coin begins spinning, use your other hand to stabilize the balloon. Your penny should continue to spin for 30 seconds or more.

the sniper rope:
take a shoe lace or any soft thin rope. make a small loop at one end and put it around the middle finger of your right hand (if you are right handed) sort of like a yo-yo. now tie a small knot about 1/2 in' from the other end and unravel that free 1/2 in' into a fluffy brush (this makes a good sound). hold the knot tight between the thumb and the index finger of the same hand to form a long U shape. now put this U-shaped loop around the index finger of the left hand (the palm facing away from you) and stretch the rope as hard as you can. that index finger should bend backwards and hold the rope like a spring.
ready to fire!
aim at something about half the length of the rope away you (a paper cup is a good target) .now release the knot and.. SLAP!!
be careful! this thing HURTS it it hits someone.
practice your aim and you'll be able to make holes in paper cups... hours of fun
enjoy :-)

Lie in bed at night in total silence. Next, begin imagining people you know saying your name. Soon, their voices will become very authentic sounding in your head. If you keep it up long enough, you'll get a very creepy surprise: Soon, you'll actually think you're hearing people say your name. Try it, it will creep you out nicely.

Button Whizzer. take a large button whith holes in it. Get a piece of kite string about 2 feet long and thread through one hole and back through the hole directly opposite the first one. Tie the open ends of the string and slide the button to the center. Place one end of the string over the middle finger of one hand, and the other end over the middle finger of the opposite hand. The button should be in the middle between the hands. Now start tightening the string by pulling the hands apart, back and forth until the button starts to wind the string. You'll know when you're doing it right. Once it's really "whizzing" put it to your sister's hair. She should have the tangles out by supper time.

By relaxing your eyes and letting them go out of focus some people are able to develop a new eye skill that allows them to "Shake" their eyes back and fourth what I would estimate to be at least 5 times per second. I was never able to do this until someone showed me how. It may be necessary to "Train" your eyes by practicing letting your eyes go out of focus and then following something close to your face like your finger. When you are able to do it you will see your vision shake violently as if your vision were a camera view in an earthquake. This is one of those tricks like being able to move your ears, some can some can't.

I'm not sure if this one is already here but here goes.

Get a stick that you can easily put your head on by bending your back. Now carefully move around the stick in a circular motion, keeping your head on top of it. After about 1 minute of this, you'll feel dizzier than any ride has ever made you feel. This technique was used by the RAF to test pilot's mental strength to withstand being sick while in the air.

1. Take your average disposable lighter. Remove the metal casing. You see the bit where you ajust the flame size? Push it to full. Then lift it up so that it is not turning the flame back down and pull it to the start. Keep on doing this as many times as you like. When you light the lighter you will have a foot high flame. A fun prank to pull on unsuspecting friends is to ask to borrow their lighter to light a cigarette. Quickly turn away, turn up the flame lots and replace the metal so it looks just as it did. Then stick around till they fancy a smoke...

2. Lie down and get a friend to put his hands on your chest as if they were about to do CPR on you. Then, get them to push very hard for about 2 mins. You will pass out and feel VERY weird. I once imagined that I was a robot in a whole society of robots and when I awoke it felt like i had been gone for hours, as soo much happened in this strange dream, however my friends told me that i was only out for a matter of seconds. WARNING: Do not press for too long and if your friend does not regain conciousness within a matter of seconds, give 'em a good slap.

3. Take about 2 - 4 Ibuprophen (this may be over the recomended dosage, but it certainly wont do you a great deal of harm) followed by one or more ecstacy tablets. The Ibuprophen thins your blood and leaves you with quite possibly the best feeling humanly possible.

This is something i used to do as a child. In an open field, lay on your back in the grass and look straight up into the sky. Imagine that you are clinging to the underside of the planet and that there is nothing below you but a deep blue void. Now imagine what would happen if gravity were suddenly reversed.

I'm not sure if it's just me but if you get a can of coke and pull the tab off it becomes really hard to drink.
UK - Friday, June 20, 2008 at 06:15:50 (PDT)
Here's some more.

Take a foil wrapper from a stick of cinnamon gum and lick the white side (the side that the gum was touching, not the shiny side!) Once it's wet, stick it to your forehead and it'll create a slow burning feeling.

Take a can of Coke and drink some of it so about half of it remains. With a little practice, you can tip the can and have it stay balanced between the bottom of the red label and the little silver edge on the bottom.

This one requires two people. Have one person hold their hands out, palms up. The second person holds their hands palms down, above person one's hands, and person two slides his or her hands over person one's hands. Then person two slides his or her hands over the underside of person one's hands. Repeat this very quickly for a few minutes, then have person two pinch his or her fingers together on person one's palms and pull away slower, like pulling a string. Person one should feel a sensation like cobwebs being pulled from his or her skin.

This one also requires two people. Both people put their hands together was if preparing to thumb wrestle, but with the thumbs pressed against each other vertically. Either person runs his or her thumb and index finger lengthwise down the two thumbs. His or her thumb should be touching one thumb, and index finger touching another thumb. Running index-and-thumb over both thumbs creates a feeling of numbness.

Take a hand mirror and hold it out in your arm, mirror side up. Look down at the mirror and angle it so all you see is your ceiling. Start walking around, pretending you're walking on the ceiling. Step over fans and doorways, but try not to run into things on your floor.

Take two mirrors and hold them so the reflections face each other. Leave a small gap between them so you can look though. If you close one eye and look into the gap, you can get lost in the reflections of reflections of reflections. It's like a small world you can explore and manipulate by changing the space between the mirrors.

This is for the people with less-than-perfect vision. Pinch your index fingers and thumbs together on both your right and left hands. Hold your right index fingertip to your left index fingertip, and right thumb fingertip to left thumb fingertip. If you wink and look through the resulting diamond shaped hole, you should see everything sharp and clear.

~Night Vision~

Make yourself an eyepatch out of cloth or any opaque object (your hand works too). Place it over one eye. Make sure that it is COMPLETELY BLACK in that eye for the greatest effect. Wear the eyepatch / cover your eye for as long as you can stand. If you're inside, go into a room with no windows and shut off all lights. If you're outside and it's dark, it's better :P. Take the eye patch off (take your hand off) and close the eye that WASN'T covered. You can see great in the dark now :D

Ok, this is my second post. Anyway, I have found 2 more cool things to try.
1) If you have a tuning fork, put on some glasses, strike the fork, and lightly hold it against a side of the glasses(one of the leg things of the glasses). It will make your ear feel weird and you will hear a strange sound.
2) Rub your shirt up and down on your nose. Like put your fingers under your shirt and press the shirt against your noes and rub up and down. Do it for like 10 seconds and then stop touching your nose. It will feel all weird!

First, buy some clear lensed glasses (some shops sell reading glasses, they can give you a headache but this is worth it.), get a friend to draw something on BOTH lenses, it has to be almost exactly the same, but as if it had been turned slightly round, to the person with the glasses, it will look like a 3d floating object!

If you suddenly start feeling sad and bored of life style you currently have, or just feel like you are too poor because you saw a brand new car on road side which you feel in love with but can't afford, do this:
Lie on the bed, make the room dark and close your eyes. Now think that you are going to die in few minutes. Hold your breath for few seconds so that you can get a feel of dying and then you will realize how good life is no matter how rich or poor you are.

If you use "DIET COKE" it works much better. But its more fun turning it into a bomb when your all drunk. Cause you can't run fast enough from it when you do it the normal way lol

Take 1ply tissue & place 1 mentos in the middle. Gently push it into the open coke, but don't let it touch the coke. Add as many mentos as you can (usually 4). Put the lid back on as tight as you can... Shake it, then toss it as high as you can into the air. Make sure it will land on a hard surface like the street, or a huge rock!... Of it lands right there will be a coke explosion. If done wrong get your drunk buddy to pick it up & try again lol

I'll let you know how it goes with the bomb & shooting it. I'm sure that'll be far more fun !!

Try this: Sit down and drink some coke. Get some in your mouth, and then lay your head back so you are facing the ceiling. Open your mouth and try not to move your tongue. Coke foam will start to form in your mouth!

Got a LASER POINTER? Boil the kettle, when lots of steam is pouring out (you have to keep the kettle boiling), turn out the lights and CAREFULLY point the laser up just below the spout through the rising steam, it's FREAKY because it looks just like a thin stream of red liquid pouring UPWARDS and spreading on the roof!

If you work with computer or electronic circuit boards you'll know most people don't like STATIC ELECTRICITY in the workplace because it wrecks stuff, so hide a little piece of BUBBLE WRAP in your left hand (assuming you are right handed), walk up to some expensive and delicate piece of gear, just as you touch it with your right hand, POP THE BUBBLE WRAP to make a 'crack' sound and pull your hand back and say 'OUCH!' it sounds and looks like you just gave the gear a massive static zap... check the looks on your co-workers faces!

Okay, get a regular 60-watt round lightbulb. stick the end (the one thats means to go in the socket) into a small cup of water. the cup has to be small enough to keep the lightbulb from slipping in and there has to be enough water to completely cover the end.

Put it in a microwave. It will flash bright purple, bright blue, then several other colours. Then explode.

Pluck out a hair from your head, and hold it vertically onto a flat computer monitor, being sure you are holding it over a white patch on the monitor. Now, holding the top of the hair still, slowly move the bottom of the hair side ot side a little - you see all the differetn colours? eh? do ya?!

This isn't necessarily a trick, but it's cool. you need yourself and someone else. make them turn their head either left or right, keeping their eyes wide and just tell them to look straight and slowly turn their head like they're saying "no" their eyes should do like a computer scanning thing where they keep pausing and going again, even though they think it's smooth. now you do it to them and watch them get freaked out. then you start feeling like your not human anymore and instead robots, and other people around you will give you weird looks.

i don't know if this is one here or not...but get a 2 liter bottle of coke and a tube of mint mentos (htey must be the mint kind)...go to a big parking lot or your driveway. Open the pack of mentos, drop it in the soda and back away...it shoots like 20 feet in the air because the menthol in the mentos releases all the CO2 in the soda at once

Some pyro stuff:

Wrap some newspaper into a rod about 1' 8" long. Cut a 1" slit in each end. Take some string, tie a knot in one end, put the knotted end into one of the slits. Then wind the string down the rod with a 1" spacing until you reach the bottom slit. Tie a knot in the bottom of the string, and put it in the slit. You now have your handle. Next, fold a pair of pages lengthwise so you have a strip about 6" wide. Wrap this around the top of your handle. Cut a 1.5" slit in the top of the head, but don't cut into the top of the handle. Take about 4' string, tie a knot in the end, put the knot in the slit and wrap with no spacing until you get to 1" above the bottom of the head. Wrap it up and down the head until the string just reaches your original slit. Tie a knot in the string and put it in the slit. Then take a 1" wide strip of newspaper and put the end in the slit. Wrap it down and back up and put the end in the slit. You now have a torch. The extra wrap of paper over the string is to help it light. If you have a roll of candle wick, use that on the head (but not on the handle). Before you use it, use a spray bottle to spray the handle just below the head.

Take some newspaper, about 4-6 sheets, and pour some molten wax on it. While the wax is still hot, light the edges of the paper.
Cut out some 4-6 thick circles. Fold the edges up a bit. Pour wax on them and light the edges.

When ordering food, make it your habit to always be specific: ask for COW'S milk. And don't forget the COW'S milk icecream. Order some scrambled BIRDS eggs. Hamburgers and burritos made from DEAD cows, pig bacon, etc. Be the outsider who subtly suggests that a trout egg omlet with raccoon sausages might appear if their order at Denny's wasn't clear enough. Or dogs' eggs! Mmmmmmm, doggggg's eggssss.

This is very simple: put a pencil on the palm of your hand, and make it so that when you throw it, it rolls from the palm all the way to the fingers and keeps spinning. It will make a whirring noise and will display some interesting aerodynamics.

If you're anything like me you're weak at doing burps. But fear no more, here are the instructions for doing the biggest burp ever!
Lie down and swallow, make sure that the air you swallow gurgles down into your gut. Keep swallowing for about 5 minutes. Then, sit up slowly - you may feel a little queezy at this point or maybe like you will throw up - but you won't. Now just sit and wait. Your friends won't know when it's coming, not even you will know when it comes but all of a sudden BEOUUUURRRRP!!!!

Another fun thing to get others to do:
Use your canine teeth to gently bite down on your pinky fingernails for about 15 seconds. Now lock your pinky fingers like your doing a pinky swear with yourself and pull hard.

A personal favorite of mine for when travelling on a long train journey with a friend, who, ideally is equally as strange as you, is to invent an Eastern European language on the spot and hold lengthy conversations with them, while receiving confused looks from other passengers. Then, at the end of the journey, thank each of the cohabitants of your carriage personally in your best Oxford English for proving to be simply marvellous travelling companionis. Yes, I know it's neither big nor clever, but I'm still amused by it.

My apologies if these are repeats:

1- Train Ride: Hop on a train and sit on the very back seat facing toward the back window. When the train starts moving, stare directly out the back window at the horizon point so that all the scenery is racing past, away from you. Do not look away. When the Train stops at the next stop it will look as though the scenery is now racing towards you. It's creepy. (Works best after a long, tiring day at work.

2- Falling Through the Floor: Takes Two people, the first lies stomach down on the floor with arms stretched above Thier head, their eyes must be closed at all times. The second one, while standing in front of the first persons hands, grabs their hands and pulls them upward, lifting their head, shoulders and torso off of the ground. Hold them lifted above the ground for a minute or two and then slowly lower them back down, It feels quite normal at first, until you actually feel like you are bending foward through the ground :O (ensure that the first person doesn't loosen their neck so that their head touches the ground or the affect will be lost)

3- Magnetic Pencils: Grab two pencils, one in each hand, and hold the two flat, unsharpened ends together. Push them together as hard as you can for 30 seconds or more. Try pulling them apart really slowly and it will feel as though they are being pulled together with magnets, or an elastic band. OR: grab one pencil, hold it at the tip and wriggle it from side to side. Behold! Magic rubber pencil.

4- Grab a piece of paper and right a message like hello there like this:


in bold capital letters, then cross your eyes to reveal the message. Hard to do sometimes, but highly entertaining. Do it with more complex messages or even pictures.

5- Grab a pole and Play a game of limbo with yourself, you get to make your very own theme music, and you always win ;D

This is really an old and stupid prank but it is fun to pull on someone. Get an empty bottle of dishwashing liquid, preferably a white bottle that had white liquid in it. Make sure it is completely washed out an dry inside. Now, take 2 feet of white kite string and thread it through the hole in the cap. Tie a small knot at each end and push the string into the bottle. When you squeeze the bottle, the string pops out just like dishwashing liquid would. It really is shocking to squirt the string on unsuspecting people (especially in good clothes)while saying 'whoops' or 'oh my!' But be ready to run away, most people do want to hit you after they realize you did not wet them with soap. Reload by unscrewing the cap and pulling the string back in.

Enhanced Color Vision.

Find a snowy TV channel (hard to do nowadays with cable) that still shows color. Watch at night with only a single end table or floor lamp on. Watch the snowy picture for about 10 to 20 minutes. Then turn the TV off and look around the room. The enhanced vision that results lasts for only a short while, but everything takes on an almost impossibly beautiful appearance. While watching the snowy TV image your brain turns up your visual acuity to compensate. Now, try to figure out why your vision isn't always as sharp as it was for those few minutes all the time.

A lot of Aussies have jars of the now defunct 1 and 2 cent coins. what do you do with them? you can sent them to the
bank, but they're only going to be melted down anyway.

It occured to me that it might be fun sending them to friends
around the world, who would then secretly scatter them in
public places.

Though it would be better if the dumping day was set, so that
suddenly all these coins would begin appearing quite suddenly
in every country around the world.

OK this is really cool. you will need two people to do this. have one person lean over as if they are picking up a golf ball. then, have them inhale as much as they can and then exhale as much as they can ten times. but make sure to do this slowly. then after you have completed the tenth breath. inhale greatly and stand up strait and stiff. have the other person then come up behind you and put you in a choke hold, but they dont squeeze tightly!! make sure not to kill this person. but apply enough pressure so you know that they will have a little bit of trouble breathing. Flexing when you have the person in the hold helps. then in about 5-10 seconds the person in the hold will faint...but make sure not to exhale when your in the choke hold or it will not work. hold your breath the whole time. so the person will faint and lay them on the ground; its funny because some people make noises and flail there arms and/or body around. very fun to film and show the person because they wont remember any of it!!!!

1. If you take a regular wooden ruler (it has to have the thin metal strip on one side) and rub it very fast on the bottom of your rubber soled shoe, for about 10 seconds and then put it on your skin, Incredible! It burns like hell! Burn your friends!

2. If you take an ordinary metal paperclip and bend it so it connects the + and - side of a AA battery and let it be for a while... Astounding, It burns like hell! Try leaving this on the plastic bumper of somebodie's car, They will wonder what left that ugly mark there and when they pick it up they will burn their hands!

3. Set your cellphone to the loudest setting and hide it in a public place. The next day start calling it like crazy.

4.Duck tape people's doors shut. Bliss.

A friend told me this one day when we both hand hangovers (it's especially good, then):

While walking along a busy shopping street, imagine that you are not walking along the street, but are, in fact, pushing the earth along beneath your feet (like a man balancing on a giant beachball at a circus). There is a horizontal pole in front, for you to hang on to and you are carefully pushing the earth beneath your feet.

When you have the effect going really well, stop suddenly. As the earth stops rolling everyone around you will fall over.

Also: try running quickly into bars to catch a glass that has been knocked over. The ONE time in your life you are actually in the right place to catch a falling glass it will look REALLY impressive.

sit in the front passanger seat of a car on a sunny day, close your eyes and get the driver to drive fast past a row of tall trees to get the 'strobe' effect. Especially good(in random situations) while having to listen to an over talkative driver on long trips in the countryside.

Here are a few from back when I was young:

Lay flat on your back, and have a friend stand on your head side and lean over, so you are both staring at eachother's faces, upside down. Now have them conceal their mouth and imagine that that's what their face looks like -- brows underneath their eyes and no mouth. Have them move their eyebrows randomly. Do the same for your friend. This should invoke a couple of giggles or laughs, which looks even funnier when you have no mouth and your brows are underneath your eyes.

Sit, close your eyes tightly and press (not too lightly) on your eyelids with your hands in any way you want. After a couple seconds, you should start seeing all sorts of different patterns; something to do with the pressure on your retina, I believe. Have a friend do the same and talk to eachother about what you see on your astral journey.

When looking at any seemingly random moving pattern with small enough grain size (such as the "snow" on your TV, or the pattern you see on a slightly lit object in the dark) you should be able to immediately pick out and see anything you're thinking of.

Any steady stimulus on any of your senses should gradually decrease to the point where you can (and then to the point where you do) ignore it; this is due to the way both your senses and your brain works. Stare at a fixed point long enough, and the image will shift to complete darkness. The drilling upstairs should stop annoying you too, after a few hours.

Touch all the fingertips on one of your hands to the corresponding one in the other. Now move your hands back and forth, tapping all your fingertips at once. (Try to tap the same part of your fingertip every time) Does it feel like there's glass in between your hands? How would you know better, short of looking at it?

"Pop" Your Nose!

Put your thumbs together, with the nails facing you. Put your thumbnails behind your upper teeth. Put your hands together covering your nose and hiding your thumbs. Gently flick your teeth with your thumbnails while wiggling your nose back and forth with your hands.

It will look and sound like you're popping your nose.

?1) place your hand flat on a table/ floor or whatever. then bend your middle finger so it is underneath your hand, push down fairly hard. now try and lift your 3rd finger up.

?2) make a humming noise and use your index and middle finger to tap the side of you voice box. you can make really good tunes, even add some Human Beatbox if you want.

?3) cup your hands together as if you were shaking someones hand and grip really tight. Put your thumbs together but make a small gap inbetween them, like an oval shape. Now put your lips over the gap and blow, you should make an owl like whistle. This takes a lot of practice to master.

stand in front of a mirror and get so close that your nose touches and the glass. if you have glasses take them off you don't need them. if you stare after about 5 seconds you should see one eye and a reflection of your face.
now try puttting your finger near your face when doing this you can also move your head to the left or right, but make sure that you keep looking at the mirror.
this is really crazy!!!

Remove the flint and spring from an empty disposable lighter. Wedge the flint into the end of the spring. Hold the flint end of the spring over a lighter flame till the flint glows red. Throw it hard at a ceiling or high on a wall, it will explode in a shower of sparks.

Cut a small square of card into a right angled boomerang shape . place on a book with an arm of the boomerang overhanging the edge of the book. Hold the book on a slight angle and flick the end of the boomerang. With a bit of practice you have a returning minature boomerang

Get two wood matches, place one on the palm of your hand, hold the other match between thumb and index and middle fingers. Pretend you are trying to build up a static charge in the match head by rubbing it on the side of of your hand or through your hair, then bring the head of the match close to the other match head at right angles. Then using your finger nail on your ring finger, flick the end of the match.
this will cause the match on your palm to jump. For best effect let it fail a few times before the "charge builds up enough"

When I was nine or ten I was virtually obsessed with snakes, mostly because I was a weird little girl living in the highly Christianised suburbs, and this was Just Not Correct back in the day--I think snakes don't freak females out the way they once did, a fact I am all too happy about. I was half-autistic and I think the snake thing was rooted in a deep need to keep humans away from me or offend their mentality in some deep way I was too young to truly grok. ANYWAY, that is why I had a large collection of serpents, both real living ones, and toy rubber ones. These are a few of the little tricks I used to play on people involving snakes in the mid nineteen-seventies. NOTE: Since Dominionist Christianity has unfortunately come back in vogue in many US regions, perhaps they'll work again, particularly in Bible belt zones, but in California, people will probably just laugh and not run screaming.

1. THE RATTLESNAKE. Get a small aquarium air pump, or any other device which is fairly silent but vibrates - maybe even a...well, vibrator, would work - I used the aquarium pump since I kept fish as well as reptiles and had a bunch of the things sitting around.

Then go to a toy store, or novelty shop, and find a rubber rattlesnake. Make sure it is one which is fairly realistic in appearance: the ones I used were cast from actual bodies of dead rattlers, and had the proper head shape and body proportions and didn't have that silly permanent forked-tongue-dangling from a closed mouth. (I always gave my rubber serpents "forked-tonguectomies" if their mouths weren't open because it made them look STUPID until I did this, nothing at all like snakes really look.) Halloween tends to bring out the rubber snakes in every shopping center imaginable so around October is your best time to find one. THE BEST kind are the ones with a WIRE inside them allowing you to twist them into a striking coil that looks very realistic.

Once you find the right rubber rattler you'll need one more item and this will be the most hard to find: a GENUINE rattle from an actual rattlesnake. (In California, these were or possibly still are illegal - it had to do with ecology, and we all know the eco-laws have gone to hell in a handbasket.) I got mine from Indian curio shoppe in Nevada around Las Vegas where my folks went for their big-deal summer vacation every year and I would always manage to pick up as many of the rattles as I could find. Of course, you could go rattlesnake hunting and find your rattle that way, but unless you know what you're doing, DON'T.

Paint the rubber rattler to look like a real diamondback, since chances are it will be carelessly painted by Chinese factory workers who never saw a rattlesnake in their lives.

Attach the rattle to the tail end. Place your rattler on a cloth item like a beat-up jacket or tablecloth and underneath the cloth put the electric vibrating object. Attach the latter to a long extension cord, plugged into the house current, and place snake, cloth and pump (or massager, vibrator, whatever) onto your front porch, in your yard, or next to the car that those jerks seem to keep breaking into.

Plug in the pump and you have what REALLY looks like a real live rattler. My folks, who weren't usually amused with my snake obsession, thought it was a fairly useful burglar deterrent. Intrepid minds might want to figure out a way to activate and deactivate the vibrational object so that it only starts rattling if someone's close to it. It will scare the crap out of them, especially if you live in a rattler-infested area.

2. THE OTHER RATTLESNAKE. This one will only work on kids and annoying old biddies who can't see well and who know nothing of snakes. Get a gopher snake, pine snake or hognose snake from a vivarium and a cage to keep it in. (Don't be an asshole and neglect taking proper care of the animal, incidentally. Feed it, clean up after it, it's not that much trouble.) These snakes have brown splotches resembling those of a rattler. You'll also need, as in the above, a real rattle from an actual rattler. Take some string and tie the rattle to the non-venomous snake's tail, and walk around with it where the person you want to annoy may be found. Just waving your pet around close enough ought to do the trick. Still, I got MUCH better results with the rubber snake. Go figure...

3. This one is silly--it's for psychedelic parties where everyone's stoned or tripping, or for kicks if you're a kid who like me just plain loved snakes. It's sort of an art piece. Get a LOT of rubber snakes of approximately the size of a garter snake, of the same variety - a toy store, novelty outlet, etc. will have them, or you can do as I did and just collect them for YEARS (I am now 40 and still buy every damn rubber snake I ever see anywhere.) Get two or three REAL garter snakes and a cage for them, and any other supplies required to maintain them (see #2 re: gopher snakes; garter snakes will be easier to feed since they'll eat goldfish which can be found anywhere.)

Last thing you need: an ordinary black light, and some fluourescent WATER BASED paint. (A black light will be easy to find if you live in a place where there are still head shops - I wouldn't live anywhere that didn't, so San Francisco is the best place in the nation for this and so many other things; it used to be you could buy a black light at any mall, at Spencer Gifts, ah, those were the days...)

Paint your hands with green fluorescent paint, or red if you prefer - the effect works best if you stick to one colour but it's not essential. Let the garter snakes slither through your hands while still wet with the paint. If it is nothing but water-based tempera it won't hurt them, but do NOT do this with acrylic or lacquer, it will harm the reptiles and that would be LAME.)

Paint the rubber snake pile - the more, the merrier - in the same general way.

Then, put the black light in the bathroom and all the snakes, real and irreal alike, into the bathtub. Turn off the regular lights and remove the lightbulbs.

When all your stoned and tripping friends go to the bathroom to take a piss watch what happens. Even the non-consciousness-altered will see 100 writhing reptiles instead of two or three real snakes and a pile of rubber. Excellent for Halloween parties but best for any other time since THEN it won't be expected and thus even more fun.

Dry your front teeth & gums by keeping your lips off them. It may help to rub your teeth and gums abit with your dry (clean) finger. Once sufficiently dry, roll your top and bottom lips up & down respectively. You get a real nice Jim Carey kind of smile.

Take a candle,any kind it doesn't matter.
Now lite it with a wooden match(those floppy ones don't burn long enough)a lighter works too but it might burn you if you lean it to the side.Let it burn for 7 seconds then blow it out. Make sure it has a steady stream of smoke and that there is no wind. now put the match/lighter in the smoke kinda far away and....BOOM the flame zooms back!(this may require a few tries)
If you do this right you may question if you blew it out in the first place!

One Chirsmas Eve I found an easy way to make highly visible static electricty. You get a fuzzy blanket and one of those smooth blanket in a dark room. Push them togather and rub your hands over them, smoothing them out. Then pull them apart and watch the static electricty jump to your fingers. If you are a star wars fan you can pretend to be the sith lord.
P.S. Works best if they are freash from the dryer

"Seeing through eyelids":
In a dark room with bright sunlight coming in a window or doorway, stare at the bright image outside for 15-30 seconds, making sure not to move your eyes. Then immedately close your eyes tight and cover them with the palms of your hands so it's really dark. You should be able to still "see" a fuzzy copy of the image you were looking at. It looks kinda like doomsday, and it's in stereo, so you think you're looking at something real.

Also works to a lesser extent in dimly lit auditoriums, and with lamps, TV, etc. People may think you're crazy, but hey, they're missing the fun!

If you keep holding your palms against your eye sockets, you'll soon see yellow rings and shadows of your optic nerves in the middle, that will stick around when you open your eyes.

A way I've found to really -really- freak people out is to make it look and sound like you're cracking your neck, back, or fingers.

The way I do this is a little trick I learned with my tongue. If you pull air into your mouth correctly, and have enough muscle control on the side of your tongue, you can make a controllable "clicking" noise, high or low, loud or soft, fast or slow. I've never successfully taught anyone this trick, so you'll have to experiment until you can make the proper tone of "click".

Now pair this with a convincing twist of the head, back, or fingers. If you're doing the fingers individually, make sure you only do about three clicks for maximum realism.

If properly acted with a slightly pained look, and the obligitory "That felt GOOD!" afterwards, most normal people will become almost sick. Teeny-bopper girls will often scream or shout "Eeeeewww!" Good fun.

On a side note, it also seems to feel almost as good as really popping your neck, if you can convice yourself that it's real. *crack!*

See two different shades in each eye:

Stare at anything for 60 seconds while covering one of your eyes. Now uncover that eye and open it. Quickly cover one eye, then the other, and compare the shading differences.

In the eye you had covered for 60 seconds, everything should appear brighter than in your other eye.

Freak out sound engineers #2:

When someone's setting up a PA, whistle a really steady tone, starting quietly then getting louder and louder. It will sound like audio feedback, and no-one can really tell where a steady tone is coming from so it'll freak them out while they fade down all the faders on the desk and the feedback sound is STILL going on!

Great fun - I've "got" several sound professionals with this one! It works best if you're in a big, empty room. Try to hide the fact you're whistling, obviously!

More fun with harmonics: Find a resonant frequency of the mattress on your bed and sing into it. If you can get a lower harmonic you can make the bed vibrate (and you don't even have to put in a quarter!) My wife hates this.

Candle Mania

Ok this is really cool, but I cant be held responsible if you burn your face off, so dont try it unless you are willing to face the consequences.

That having been said, take one of those little candles in the aluminum foil, or just a small peice of a candle but TAKE THE WICK OUt

Next take a jar lid from a glass jar and burn the plastic coating off.

now build a small fire or do this on your stove, hold the jar lid with pliers, or anything to keep it away from your face.

put the candle into the jar lid and "cook" it over the fire until gray smoke starts to billow from the wax, and it catches on fire

although this is cool on its own, and you can throw the wax or dunk stuff in it, theres more

take the aluminum container or some thing to hold a tiny amount of water in, and put about 10-20 drops of water in it (this is very little water btw), next pour the water onto the burning wax AWAY FROM YOUR FACE and watch it explode into a 5 foot tall column of flame.

This is much less dangerous than it sounds, and ive done it like 40 times and was never hurt, my ethanol experiment was a whole other story though,

NOTE: dont do this experiment in high wind, or if you have really bad judgement, and have fun :)

Before you try this, it is helpful to learn how to look around your surroundings without actually moving your eyes. (if you can do this move on :P) Stare at something small, and lock your eyes there. it's hard to explain, but... sort of imagine you have a second eye, and look around without moving your first eye. its weird, you almost forget about what eye #1 is looking at while 'using' eye #2!!


I've tried this loads of times when i am really bored. Find a very small spot, that you can just barely see (can smetimes depend- try different spots!); say a piece of black dust on the skirting board or carpet of a room. Relax, and stare at it for a long time. Soon, your surroundings will start to go a bit weird!

WARNING: This may strain your eyes. Make syre you try this in decent light, if not it will indeed strain your eyes :)

Even better than deliberately talking with an impediment, try using a (good) foreign accent instead. Even better, turn it on and off, or "parallel" your accent to a foreigner next to you in the bar. I usually use a Crocodile Dundee accent for this, but occasionally use Canadian just for a change-up. Regional accents work too. A game I used to do was when someone would ask where I'm from, I let them guess way off course. This worked as a Chicagoan with a controllable Alabama accent real good.

when someone is talking in a small group of people, I mean really concentrating on the subject, walk up to them from the side and quietly give them something to hold (odd, not everyday things) and walk away and watch them. eventually, they'll notice the thing and youll love the look on thier face! it helps if they know you so your presence wont throw them off.

If you have braces, take a paper clip and touch one end to the archwire and the other to your tongue. Kind of a diminished 9 volt battery effect. (The paper clip has to be a different type of metal from the archwire, so you might have to try several.Try staples too.)
Cut a grape in half but leave a tiny strip of skin connecting them. Put the halves on a plate laid out flat sides down. Nuke them in the microwave, but be ready to turn it off. A huge spark will leap up right between the sides.

This is my favorite form of entertainment when travelling by train. Look at the neighboring railroad tracks, and focus on one of the rails. Keep looking at one point, until the rail doesn't seem to be moving anymore. Now slowly move your eye backwards or forwards along the rail, and imagine the rail moving with it. After a while you can move the rail back and forth at will, purely with the power of your mind!

Take some time out on a sunny day. Get a metal spoon, one that is clean and shiny. Go outside or near a window where the sun is shining in. Hold the spoon low, with the dome or back of the spoon pointing up, and make sure you can see the reflection of the sun off of it. Look down at the back of the spoon, and move the spoon around, side to side, etc. Notice the trails or "comet tails" left by the reflection of the sun as you move the spoon around, these will mostly dissipate, although if you close your eyes you can still see the trails left, they persist for a few moments.

A trick to see the Fibanocci pattern of your own retina (or brain?):

Sleep overnight in a very dark room (you may need to put a blanket over the window - most shades aren't good enough). In the morning while it's still dark in the room, turn on a bright light while your eyes are closed.

This works better if you turn on the light almost immediately upon awaking, and try to open your eyes as little as possible before you do so.

The (almost painful) brightness behind your eyelids will, for a fraction of a second, appear in a Fibanocci pattern just like a sunflower.

I assume this is the result of retinal light-sensors delivering "raw" information to the brain. Since the optical part of the brain is pretty calm (I use the analogy of a still pond where the ripples have all died down), it 'sees' the pattern of light just as the retina receives it. OR the brain itself forms this pattern after the light is delivered.

This is a weird thing, but it works, if you have a good sense of rythm.

The trick: How tnock down a metal lamppost with one hand in seconds? You can do it with a lamppost, but it can be dangerous, as they are rather heavy.

Push/thwack the lamppost so, that you see little movement at the top. Now, you must find the right rythm to increace the amplitude of the effect. So, you must start with a fast wiggle, and every wiggle should amplify the resonance. When the amplitude increaces, the frequency ascends. If you get it right, in a ten or so seconds you'll have the top swinging in an amplitude of meters! Just keep swinging the pole, and the metal will break! Be careful not get it falling on yourself (or anyone else for that matter).

The most important thing to accomplish this trick is to learn to find the right "frequency" first, and not to make a wave that would cancel the previous ones. The beginning is the hardest, but it gets a lot easier in the end!

This principle is based on harmonic oscillation, and the principle can be applied to just about anything, where resonance is found. For instance, try the trick with a basketball in a center of a pool. You can make a 6 foot tidal wave with harmonic waves, and get half of the water from the pool away!

Link your two little pinky fingers together and pull apart. Nothing right?

Now bite down, relatively hard, on these fingers nails for around 20-30 seconds. Now link your pinky fingers together again and pull...

Haven't read the entire site so maybe this is in there. With a friend stand very close together facing each other. Your faces should be less than 2-4 inches apart. On the count of three, scream into each others faces as loud as you possibly can. You'll hear some amazing noises which I suspect must be the audible interference patterns of the sound waves reinforcing and cancelling.

Most everyone knows how to make music with their mouths by clapping (if you don't, follow these instructions - cup your hands slightly and put them together. A triangular hole should be formed above your thumbtips. Now clap the hands and you should feel air being forced through that hole at the moment of impact. Make a face like a monkey saying "OO!" and direct the blast of air into your mouth. After a while you should get a clear, hollow noise. Moving your tongue - like when you whistle - will give different notes. If you're still having trouble, ask your friends, one of them will probably know the trick)

So, now you can do that, here's a trickier thing - try opening your throat out, like you were yawning, but keeping your mouth in the "OO!" shape. You should get a much deeper and hollower note.
That takes a little practice.

Once you get good at it, try using it for other things - like when you click with your tongue.

My absolute favourite use for this is to create a human flanger, as follows. Get a fairly decent mobile phone (or something else that generates noise - phones with polyphonic ringtones made of deep notes and high percussion work the best I've found). Open your mouth and point the speaker in then do the yawning throat jibby - you should hear the sound change noticeably. From there, it's just move your mouth and throat mechanics around any which way. Anything that makes the sound change is a good thing...

Try biting your own elbow. Soemeone once said to me some proverb saying something like "so close and yet you can't bite it." ... "Right..." I tried. Nope, not working. I pulled off my coat because I figured out it was preventing me from bending my hand close enough. Nope, my chin got in the way this time. I tried it from all possible angles for about 5 minutes until I finally managed to bite it. Then I said it to my classmates and they all started trying it. Teacher was pretty freaked out when she came into class...
By the way your foot is just as long as your forearm, try it.

Contrary to popular belief, coffee will not make you sober up nor will it cure a hangover.

HOWEVER, coffee, or rather the caffine in coffee, will effectively DOUBLE the strength and absorption of painkillers such as asprin or ibproufin.

So, for a surefire hangover destroyer, chase those pills with a strong cup (or pot) of coffee.

Old bartender's trick: to lessen foam in some drinks dab the outer part of your nose or your forehead with your finger and touch it to the foam. The grease will cause a chain reaction in the tiny bubbles, quickly popping the ones you touch and spreading out rapidly amongst the others.

This trick works especially well with carbonated soft drinks like coke, root beer sprite, dr pepper, pepsi and the like. It works with lager/ale (i.e. standard beer) to a limited degree.

Here's one probably everyone knows:

Spit Yo-Yo:
Gather that thick gooey saliva in your mouth. Eating chocolate or other sweet helps. The thick stuff gathers around where your tonsils are, so you need to "suck" it to your mouth from there. By closing your mouth and pumping the saliva down and up, a significant amount of "the stuff" can be gathered quite fast. Looking down at your feet, carefully pump just a little bit of the spit down, and suck it in really fast, before it is separated. One can learn to "pump" the spit really low and long. I could pick up a popcorn from the floor, while standing! Talk about a lizard effect!!

And another one I discovered as a kid. Maby someone has as well.

FreakFace: You need 2 mirrors for this. 1 on the wall, and
find a decently sized square or round mirror you can handle easily. About 2ft in diameter is good. Open your mouth and place the mirror as far as you can (not the corner though) in your mouth. When you tilt your head down (chin to chest) facing the wall mirror, see the image in the mirror you are holding. Now stare it, and make your brain belive that your head is like that.. Doing this too long makes the corners of your mouths hurt a little.. But the most important thing is to remember not to bite the mirror, as glass is not fun in the mouth.

This is pretty self-explanatory.

You need 2 cellphones. Call to the other, and answer. Put the other in to your left, and the other to your right ear, and speak,, it's hard! Still, normally we don't have this delay,, or do we??

I remembered one more, but as I was unable to reproduce the effect, so the trick will remain unpublished for now:)

"Blue 'eyes' are an optical illusion of some kind that I see when I look at a small, dim light such as an LED in darkness. I preseume it's my eyes trying to use whatever light they can get.

Look up! Especially inside of buildings, you may notice things you never noticed before; pipes, lights, ductwork and who knows what else. It seems not many people look up inside buildings, so hide a secret message on the ceiling where the few people who look up will notice it. Steeped or dar ceilings make things less noticeable so try to avoid putting your message on low ceilings where it will be immediatly noticed. Try making things out of paperclips, pen parts, rubber bands, and almost anything you can find in your immediate environment. You can make interesting mechanisms this way.

Trick 1--Close your eyes not too tight or not too loose,close them like you are about to fall asleep (but don't sleep!) or this will not work.Then lightly put your fingers on your top eyelid while your eyes are still closed.Then let your finger on it get heavier and heavier while holding it there for about 10 to 15 seconds.Now let go.You should see blue before opening your eyes a little,then the image appears distorted.Look quickly though!DO IT WITH BOTH EYES OR IT WILL NOT WORK.

Trick 2--Pretend you're throat is "closed".You know,the feeling you get before you swallow food.Now,put water in your mouth and start gargling while you're throat still feels "closed."Sounds like someone is drowning or something.Scary,huh?

Trick 3--Lay down stomach-up on a bed,with your legs up,making a triangle from knees to waist.Start wiggling your toes at that position.Then at the same position,wiggle you're fingers while the toes,and now--QUICK!!--look back at you're toes.You're fingers almost stopped wiggling.Now do the same thing but look at you're fingers.Sam with the toes.

Trick 4--While at the same position at Trick 3,wiggle just your toes then quickly drop your legs at the same position but keep wiggling them.For a second there-doesn't quite wiggle the same,now,does it?Helps if you did trick 3 for a while.

Ok spit bubbles. This takes some practice but is worth it when you see the amazed/disgusted looks on the faces of passers-by.

First of all you need the right kind of spit. If it's too watery or sticky it won't work. Your saliva changes consistency when you eat different types of food or drink so try experimenting. I find drinking hot tea or coffe with milk helps.

Gather some saliva at the front of your mouth. Next move your tongue through the saliva and then position it against the inside of your mouth under your bottom lip. Your mouth should be closed and tongue relaxed. Your tongue should be touching the sides of your mouth on all sides so a kind of seal is formed.

Now gently pull your tongue back from your mouth. If you've done it right you should feel a film of saliva stretching between the tongue and your mouth. You need to get this step right first so keep practising until you get a film.

Once you have a film you can open your mouth and gently move your tongue down and forward. Moving the tongue down has the effect of pushing the air under your tongue upwards, through the film forming a bubble. Moving your tongue forward will seal the bubble.

Eventually you will get to the point where you have a small bubble perched on the tip of your tongue.

The next part is the easiest. Poke your tongue out of your mouth and gently blow the bubble from your tongue, not too hard or it will burst.

Once you have mastered this, try blowing the bubble straight up and then catching it in your mouth. See how many times you can catch the same bubble!

Further to the "Head without a body" idea, when you are flying down the shafts of the gigantic Alien Construction, keep your arms down at your sides but lift them slightly away from your body at 30-45 degree angle. Curl your fingers and touch them with your thumb so each hand makes a circle. Hey presto! Your own pair of 'wings' with attached 'jet engines' on the end. To add to the effect make a soft roaring or whooshing noise with your mouth.

Also when you are walking outside, imagine that your are not moving at all, but that the Earth is revolving underneath you. You will find you can make the Earth move in different directions by altering the way you are facing. You can also make faraway objects come nearer to you by revolving the Earth until they reach you.

If you are walking along next to a low fence or wall, pretend you have a little friend by walking your fingers along the top of the wall. You can make your friend perform amazing stunts by leaping from one wall to the next.

On a bright sunny day look at a part of the sky where there are no clouds. Relax your eyes and you will start to see little white objects zipping around very fast. They look similar to smoke particles in a Brownian Motion experiment if you ever did that at school. These are white blood cells moving through the vessels in your eyes though I like to pretend they are UFOs engaged in a space battle. These aren't the same as the dark objects you sometimes see. They are called vitrous floaters and are the shadows of dead cells floating in the fluid in your eyeball.

Kitchen Vortex- If you have a garbage-disposal in your sink, turn the water on about half-way and have a bottle of liquid dish-soap (classic, not the dishwasher type)ready. Turn on the garbage disposal and decrease the water stream until it is a thin stream. Aim the soap bottle at the hole and give it a full squeeze and turn off the water right after.

Ok, nothing should be happening yet, as the Vortex is only primed and ready. To open the vortex, slowly allow more water into the drain, just a little at a time. The effects of each dose of water will come a few seconds delayed. What to look for: listen for a growling sound and notice as a white whirlpool slowly constricts inside the opening. You can feed your vortex a mixture of more water and soap, to get it to full maturity. A mature vortex fills the cavity, with a shaft in its center, about the size of a roll of dimes.
A fully grown vortex will have a much deeper voice than the smaller ones, and it will try to form words like "mama" or "Moam-g-g-g-AmoowOOowowaaAAAHH"
You will find yourself shaking-off moments where you realize you are staring at it in wonder.

If you live with a baby, and have walkie talkies, try this. Take the baby moniter and turn both sides on (the base and the handset) Then turn the walkie talkies on, and talk through them. The baby monitor will spit out what you are saying, no matter how quiet you say it. Wierd, I wonder why. (I discovered this when my brother was spying on me with his friend, and they were using walkie talkies, and I happened to turn on the baby monitor, thus hearing every word they said and ruining their game)

ok this is from my err .. phycedlic days ..

get a frying pan , a good sized one about 12 inchs or so ..
put 1 inch of milk into it
grab a pack of food coloring , you know the pack that has 1 blue 1 red 1 yello and 1 green.
randome place a drop of each color in the milk .. like 5 drops of blue ( 5 differnt places ) 5 of green , etc .. dont let any of the drops touch each other.
grab some liquid dish washing soap .. put 3 or 4 drops of the liquid in the pan ...

the surface tension of the milk gets moved around by the soap cauzing the food coloring to mix around .. this looks like a living moving tie-dye .. lasts a good 30 mins ( then it just look a dull brown ) anyone on any sort of mind altering substance ( or just those with naturaly weird minds ) will get lost in it.

Can you turn your eyelids inside out? I bet you can't, but some people who can don't even know they can.

Turning your eyelids inside out does not hurt at all. In fact, it feels kind of good, like if your arm was in a cast for a long time and it finally got taken off. Beware, though, because while your eyelid is inside-out, you will be able to blink, but air will still get through the corners, meaning you can only keep your eyelids that way for as long as you can go without blinking. I am an expert at turning my eyelids inside out, as you can see at my website. There are a few methods for turning one's eyelids inside out. You can use whichever one works best for you, because different people's eyelids react differrent ways to these. Be warned, though - if you are unfortunate and like 99.7% of the population, you won't be able to do any of these.

1. The obvious way
Place your thumb beneath your eyelashes and your forefinger above them, with the tip resting on your eyelid. It's usually easiest if you use your right hand for your right eye, and your left hand for your left eye. Rotate your hand upwards, so that your forefinger is pointing downwards, until your hand is obstructed by your head. You now need to get your forefinger out from under your flipped eyelid. While keeping your thumb where it is, slide your forefinger gently out of the pocket you made. Press your entire thumb on the inside-out eyelid. At this point, you may be done. Lift your hand off the eyelid. If it stays, good job. If it doesn't, do everything over again, but this time, before taking your thumb off, carefully place your forefinger back on the eyelid. Now that your thumb and forefinger are both on top, slowly slide them apart while gently pushing until they are both off of the eyelid. This gives it increased stability. After time, your eyelids will become looser, and this step will be unnecessary.

2. The temple method
Only a very few people are able to turn their eyelids inside-out using this method. Even if you are one of the select few, you will have to practice a few times the first way to loosen up your eyelids before this will work. Here's what you do: Place your middle and forefinger on the temple corresponding to the eyelid you want to flip. This part will probably take practice: Close your eye with force at the same time you pull your hand away from your eye, while applying pressure. Now, keep your face and hand in that same position, and use your other hand to hold the eyelid in the flipped position. Now repeat the optional last step of #1, and you'll be done. Again, after time these last two steps will be unnecessary.

3. The blinking method.
Personally, I cannot use this method, although it seems to be the most popular way to do this. As far as I can tell, this is the same as #1, but instead of rolling your hand upwards, you simply pull the eyelid out gently and blink with force. Then you can use the same steps to finish it.

Have fun!

Hot Pens

Take a pen and rub the tip of it against a surface(like a school desk or table) with the side of the tip so you won't write on the surface. If you do this the tip will get hot. If you do it for about five minutes the tip gets hot enough to char(or burn!) paper. Be careful.

Freaky Lift...

You need a few people to do this but it is really amazing when it works!

Get together 5 people. Get one to sit in a chair, the other four make their hands into guns like shapes, boths middle fingers and index fingers together, thumbs crossedlittle and ring fingers interlocked. One person puts their hand under the sitting persons left knee, another puts their hand under the right knee, the next the right armpit the last the left armpit. Try to lift the sitting person...unless this person does not weigh much or you have 4 incredibly strong people you won't be able to lift them. THEN the four people place thier hands on the sitting persons head, pressing down lightly. Then they return to their places, left knee, right armpit etc, and try to life the sitting person again..this time you'll lift them right up!

(i can honestly say this works... i am 13 and me and threeof my friends lifted my dad, a 6'2" guy above our heads!..i have no idea how this works! perhaps if you know you could tell me?)

When your in a car, lie down so you can ONLY see the sky. Then relax and listen to the sound of the engine of the car and imagine you're in an aeroplane, or flying in some way, its really cool!

heres a good one though. flick the side of your cheek while pushing the air out of your mouth, not breathing. it should make a "ploink" sound!

One I've always done-
Look at something, preferably a tree outside on a clear day. Well, I say "look" rather loosely, because you kinda have to look through your whole image you see. After a minute or two, the image starts to all go white, and almost rotates. It looks alot cooler than I can decsribe. If you dare move an eye, though, the illusion is lost.

This also works in a dim-lit room, only the illusion is much quicker in a reverse effect; everything goes dark.

Here's one you smokers can try right this very minute - Perfect smoke rings! Take a hard pack of cigarettes that still has the cellophane on the bottom. Light a cig and smoke it. Carefully pull down the cellophane wrapper so it is three quarters of the way off the box. Using the lit cigarette, poke a hole in the larger side of the cellophane, (it will melt away a circle). Then take a drag and blow the smoke into the hole you just made, filling the cellophane "chamber". Now, flick the bottom of the cellophane with your finger. Little smoke rings will pop up. As with smoke rings made orally, you'll get a better ring if you don't inhale the smoke before blowing it into the chamber.

Ok I know its 2005 and no one has been here in forever but, ssqueez the skin on your chin really hard in your hand. squeeze it really hard for about 10-20 seconds and let go. Now, as soon as you let go use your finger to Flick your chin where you were just squeezing. Flick it REALLy hard about 3 - 5 times. It should leave a really big red, ugly and very noticable broose for about 5 days. It's very annoying and you can trick people easily.

Pick up a large ceramic or glass vase and hum into its neck, making a siren noise from low to high pitch. Usually one pitch will be louder than all of the others. Hum this exact pitch into the vase and stop quickly; you can hear the vase resonating at its fundamental frequency. The closer your pitch is to the vase's fundamental, the louder the vase resonates. There are similar tricks you can do with guitars and pianos: just play one note very loudly and, if the string an octave above it is free, it will start vibrating by sympathetic vibration.

Using a spoon, tap a coffee mug at 3 o'clock from its handle. Now tap it at 6 o'clock and 9 o'clock- it makes the same pitch. However, if you tap the mug at 1:30, 4:30, 7:30 or 10:30 from its handle, the mug makes a different, slightly higher pitch. This is because when you tap the mug, the mug vibrates at antinodes 90 and 180 degrees from wherever you hit it. Directly between the antinodes are the nodes, where the mug doesn't vibrate. When you hit the mug at 3,6 or 9, the handle of the mug is on an antinode and has to vibrate, which increases the mass of the resonator and decreases its frequency. When you tap the mug at 1:30, 4:30, 7:30 or 10:30, the handle is on a node doesn't vibrate, so the mug makes a higher pitch.

Take a strobe light into a dark room where you have a fan. Ground fans work better than ceiling fans. Set the strobe light facing towards the fan and turn the fan on. The fan will appear to be slowly moving in a circle and will even change directions of travel. This works with spinner belt buckles, and spinner watches, get it spinning fast and it will appear to rock back and forth sometimes. May help to be high when you do this too.

Just a simple physical trick; this works best with a small, weaker person and a big larger person. Have the smaller person put their hand on their head. Have the larger person try to pull the hand off. The larger person will be able to whip the little person around, but never pull of the hand.

Right I saw this done quite a few times way back and it was always fun make a hot air balloon from a large bin bag by attaching a wire frame to the bottom with tape and at the center of this frame a few inches below the opening of the bin bag create a fuel holder. I have seen this done with a small tin can wired in place.

Right go outside at night, somewhere remote and light a small fire. Now inflate the balloon from the heat riseing from the fire ( hold tightly as the lift is something to be believed) Now before you let go place a couple of fire lighters (alight) in the can at the bottom and let go.

At this stage it will rise at about 10feet a second most impressive. This is if you have the right sort of volume to your bin bag. Now go home and watch the local tv for ufo reports. Once you become good at this you can look for larger bags or as we did make them from tissue paper (multi coloured looks awsome).

K, Heres a couple :-D
1. Put your each of your hands into a fist position and put them side by side. Let a friend pat them lightly whilest you push your balled up fist together (trying to make them merge) Do this for a good 4 minutes or so. Then slowly move your balled up fist away from each other around 4 or 5 inches. Your fist should try resume the former position they were in! Simple, yet ODD! Like me! Rofl x]
2. Fool people into thinking your levetating!! Omgz0rz! Turn to a side angle where your friends can only see the right side of you. then lift your right foot up of the ground whilest tilting your left foot to the left! this creates a optical illusion type thing. Tis best if you do it in a sightly dim or dark area!
3. Have fun Snewblets! :-D

Old school display boards which have huge pixels on them - like the ones in airports or movie theater lobbies. Its great if you can find the resonance which they seem to wobble at while humming. Try to keep your pitch as deep as possible and hum from your chest or stomach - not from your throat.

Even stereo displays sometimes work. I discovered this with 5 friends at a cinema. 6 people lined up, staring into space, humming and occasionally bursting into hysterics. Got some crazy looks.

Extend your hand flat with your palm facing down and your index and middle fingers together. Place a small piece of food--M&Ms or a kernel of popcorn works great--on the crack where your two fingers meet towards the end. Now smack the base of your fingers with the other hand. Even though you can't see it, your fingers act like a springboard and launch the food into your mouth. Open and close your mouth very quickly while you do this, and it will look like the food just disappeared. Warning: don't try this with peanut M&Ms or something large, unless you want to chip a tooth or choke to death.

Open your mouth wide in front of a mirror. Inhale deeply, and watch your soft palate move upwards. Where does it go?

When telling someone your phone number, break the digits up into a group of 4 and then a group of 3. For example, instead of 5-5-5 *pause* 1-2-3-4, say 5-5-5-1 *pause* 2-3-4. It messes with people's heads. Also works with social security numbers.

Turn the flint grinder thing on a lighter slowly (so as not to ignite the flint dust created) several times. Turn the lighter over and tap it over a piece of paper to collect the dust. Now light the lighter and pour the dust about five inches above the flame. The dust will light up like a sparkler several inches above the flame. Also, if you're a smoker, wet one side of a cigarette slightly, sprinkle the dust on it, and let it dry. Every time you take a drag off of it, it will sparkle. Give one of these cigarettes to an unsuspecting victim and enjoy the show.

Tell someone to "look over there" without pointing or indicating a direction in any way. They'll look around and then ask "where?" Look in a different direction and say, "over there." Repeat.

( Psychic Pressure )
meditate for a few minutes, imagining that there is 'energy' that can flow thru your body. start at your feet and imagine 'energy' swirling around your feet and up around your legs and body and then down both arms at the same time. now imagine the 'energy' building/swirling up at your hands. and bring your palms close to each other, but don't let them touch. leave them a few inches from each other, and slowly bring them closer. (but don't touch) bring them apart and slowly together again, repeatedly, slowly, barely moving them.

You should feel pressure from between your hands! like a 'force-ball' or bar-shaped, like a magnet.

Here's one to try that is a little different.

Everyone has an inner monolog. Try changing your inner monolog's "voice." So when you're thinking, you don't hear yourself, you hear instead, say, Sean Connery or Bill Clinton or someone.

Keep doing it for 10 minutes or more. It really messes with your mind. I find it raises the hackles on the back of my neck when I use a female voice (being male myself.)

At any rate, unless you want people looking at you strangely when you burst out laughing for no reason, try it by yourself first :)

Stand in the middle of a doorway and let your arms hang loose at your side. Slowly raise your arms straight out until the backs of your hands are touching sides of the door frame. Continue to press hard against the frame and count to 50. Now step away from the door and totally relax your arms again. They will "levitate" without you even trying.

Okay, here's an awesome microwave trick that I really like. First, get a toothpick or a match; second, put the toothpick or match in something that will hold it erect(like a robitusen cup with a hole punched in the bottom). Next, put the cup with toothpick, or match, intact into the microwave. Now light it, and turn the microwave on! Do this for only a few seconds, any more and your microwave may either melt or break. Fireballs pop out the burning toothpick(the toothpick doesn't have to be on fire, just a decent cherry will work). Don't believe me? Try it for yourself

Okay, my friend taught me this... get a friend to hold out both your hands. Slap them. Ask them which hand hurt more. Have them turn it over, palm-up. Run your finger gently along each of their fingers (aka tickling their fingers)... ask which one tickled the most. ask them to concentrate on either A, B, or C. Then stretch the skin on their fingertip so it is mostly whiteish coloured. The letter will appear slightly pinkish in their fingertip. Me and my brother have found that all letters work for this, only mistakes are made, like you might msitake a G for an O for a C... it's just easier to do just A B and C. This is really really creepy and works almost every single time.

I discovered this in my pick-up truck ,but it can be done in most any car as well. have your passenger hold one of those mirrors (about 4 foot tall & 12 inches wide)that you have on a door or wall, horizontally, across the top of the front seats just behind the driver`s head while driving. the driver can watch in his rear view mirror. man it is a weird sensation. Try videoing this with a camcorder mounted on the dashboard facing the mirror & play it back on our tv for friends & family! it`s a freaky feeling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the winter when static electricity abounds, go into your bathroom and turn on your sink so that only the tiniest trickle of water comes out. It must be a steady stream, not dripping---almost dripping---but not dripping---just a tiny little steadily trickling stream---got it? Now comb your hair with a plastic comb until it's crackling with electricity. Then place the comb near the stream of water. The static electricity will bend the stream of water into an arc. with a little practice you can actually make the water flow against gravity and up out of the sink!

You've probably seen "light saber" toys, consisting of a plastic rod fiber optic and a laser-pointer-like base that has a flashing LED instead of a laser. Two things you can do here:

1. Attach the plastic optics to a laser pointer. Gives interesting sparkles, and may let you lens smeared laser onto your walls.

2. Close your eyes and point the flashing LED right into your face. This works best if the LED is red, but green will sometimes get through enough as well. After a while, you will begin to see color dots and fringes similar to those you get poking at your eyes, but without the discomfort or risk. They will flash in time with the LED (not surprising). A rate of about 4 to 5 Hz and a short duty cycle seems to work quite nicely. I've seen some that blink once or twice a second, with a long duty cycle. That's not going to cut it.

Don't do this if you're epileptic, or even have had a seizure. It's probably best to do it laying down even if you aren't worried about having a seizure. But it doesn't hurt to be baked or otherwise chemically enhanced.


1. Shine a bright red LED into thin skin areas like the webbing between two fingers. You'll see a diffuse glow that is eerie itself, but you'll also see blood vessels and maybe even finger bones. Red lasers work too, but the sparkle effect tends to screw up seeing blood vessels.

2. Shine a laser pointer into a translucent object. The sparkle effect can be quite mesmerizing.

3. Shine a laser pointer through a transparent, half-filled bottle of water, then shake the bottle to jostle the water around. Watch the laser dance on the far wall.

4. Cats generally love to chase laser dots, as do some dogs. Birds are likely to try to eat the dot, but that's not particularly entertaining for long. But if you can get your pet to chase it, it's a lot less effort than playing fetch, and there are no soggy tennis balls.

If there's a mirror in the room, lead the laser dot over to the mirror (slowly, you don't want your pet to crash into the mirror) and beyond (bounce it off the mirror). A typical cat will only track the real dot going into the mirror, but see both the real and reflected dots after it reaches the mirror, and will look at the two alternately, trying to decide which one is real.

Ok, this one is only for people with braces. Get a standard, fully charged 9 volt battery and put 1 of the prongs on the top braces, and the other on the bottom braces. You'll start to get a strange feeling/taste in your mouth, and then, all of the sudden your whole face will get a violent JOLT. Most of the time, you will see a blue flash of light, as the shock forces your eyes to close. Trick people with braces into doing this and you'll probably laugh you ass off!

Ok, I haven't done this one since I was a kid, but it should work fine. First, lay down on the ground face down with your arms straight and relaxed over your head. Relax your whole body, then get a friend to grab your hands and pull them up, lifting your head off the ground. You must keep your head hanging loosely the whole time. After your friend holds you there for a good 2-3 minutes. (If it doesn't work after 2-3 minutes, try longer). After waiting with your head hanging, have your friend lower your arm slowly to the ground. When done right, your arms will feel like they're going through the ground. Your mind is tricked into thinking the ground is alot closer than you'd previously thought. PEACE!

Have u noticed how cats always lands on their feet, and the same when you accidently drop a slice of peanutbutter bread and it always lands on the peanutbutter side! So here's what you do. Take a cat and one slice of peanutbutter bread, and attach the slice to the cats back(any way you want) and drop the cat from the roof. Now notice how the cat stops about half meter from the ground and rotates furiously. They have reached an invinite equalibrium of their inverted quantum energies. This is good. Now all you have to do is connect a dinamo and you have an infinite energy source. Legal Note: I am NOT responsible for any loss of animal life. I will also ingone any requests to clean up blood and peanutbuttered pavements. Tip: Use variations of bread.

BE the record player. Put a record on the turntable and turn it on, but instead of putting the needle on the record, use your fingernail. It takes some practice to hold it steady enough and with the right amount of pressure to stay in the groove, but if you get it right you'll faintly hear the record playing out of your fingertip. DO NOT use your mint condition first pressing of Abbey Road, because doing this probably ruins the record.

This is a follow up to blowing up lighters.First- the lighter when it explodes can fly twenty feet or more in any direction so make sure you're not going to hit anybody or yourself. Second- if you throw the lighter down hard but it doesn't hit the ground at the bottom part, it will break but not explode.You know you've succeeded when you hear a fairly loud bang, see some fire(more discernable at night), and their are no lighter pieces in sight.

Blow up cheap lighters. Get a cheap plastic lighter filled with lighter fluid, go outside and throw it as hard as you can on the ground.Make sure you throw it so only the bottom of the lighter hits the ground vertically. It takes some practice but if you do it hard and precise enough the lighter wiil explode and fly everywhere. The more lighter fluid inside the bigger the explosion.

Works best with three people. Two people stand on either side of a swivel chair. One person gets on their knees in the chair. The person in the chair kneels down and puts one side of their head on the top of the back of the chair (so they are facing a wall looking at it sideways). They should then close their eyes. The two people on either side should start spinning the other person. At a certain point the person will no longer feel like they are moving. At this point, the two spinners should stop the chair immediately. If done properly (It's hard to mess up) the person will be unable to stop himself from falling forwards (if the direction of spin is the direction they were facing) or backwards (if otherwise).

magic tilting soda can. I discovered this on my own while being bored on my lunchbreak at work a few years ago. (disclaimer; This trick only works once in front of witnesses before half of them figure it out and do it themselves later on in front of another set of witnesses - thereby creating a tilting soda can pyramid scheme) Drink about two thirds to three fifths of a can of soda - the kind with a bevelled bottom edge works best (most cans have this kind of bottom edge). Tilt it at a diagonal angle and place it by the bottom edge on a flat surface and carefully let go. The can stands tilted there on its own! It may take a little adjusting by sipping a little bit more to get it balanced just right. If done perfectly, you can further entertain people by carefully nudging the side of the can to make it wobble around in circles. Another wonderful thing to do is set up a bunch of tilting cans all around an empty cafeteria or kitchen or wherever there's a lot of flat surfaces where people are bound to come in and be completely befuddled by the cans as though they're in the Twilight Zone! The trick is a simple act of evenly distributed liquid on the inside of the can to form a perfect V angle with the bottom bevelled edge; gravity does the rest.

Take a standard wire hanger and pull it in the middle by holding the top and pulling center out C=====?. Stick your index finger in the loop of the closed end so you can twirl it with your finger. Bend the top slightly so the point of the hanger is vertical when the hanger is hanging down from your finger. Now place a penny face up on the point. If you are carefull it will balance. Now slowly rock the hanger back and forth until there is enough force to allow you to start spinning the hanger 360 degrees with your finger. The centrifical force will keep the penny in place and trip everyone out.

First you need an office chair or any other type of chair that can easily swivle 360 degrees. Second grab a standard bicycle wheel (the larger the wheel such as the front wheel of a beach cruiser the better this works). Spin the bike wheel as fast as you can while holding it by the axles. Sit in the swivle chair and left your feet. By tilting the spinning wheel left or right the gyroscopic effect will cause your body to spin around in the chair. Joy!

Another two cool eye tricks I've discovered that Ive never heard mentioned of ANYWHERE.

1) open your eyes really wide. Now with your index fingers, gently press inward towards your nose on the outer corner of your eyes. Soon your vision will fade black around the corners, and continue until all you see is a small circle of vision, then complete blackness (sometimes with nifty swirley blue things). Release the pressure, and your vision fades back. Nifty trick involving pinching the optic nerve.

2) stare at any one of your eyes in the mirror... really closely, so that you can see the patterns and lines clearly. Now tilt your head as if your eye was the center of a wheel. Your eyeball will twist in its socket to maintain "upright" vision. You can notice that the lines and patterns in your eye dont move with your head. freaky!

put an aluminum can tab between your forefinger and index so your fingers touch through the big hole, then fling it forward and the can tab will take flight. It will spin like a helicopter or frisbee through the air. They stall a bit so don't expect them to go where you aim. These fly very far and sometimes cannot be seen because of their low profile or speed. Try experimenting with different ways of launching them to make them fly farther.

Paralize your hand. Grab the fingers of your left hand with your right hand and squeeze them as hard as you can. Hold them for as long as you can take the pain. Now reduce your grip very slightly and remove your left hand without moving the fingers on your right hand and wait for about 1 min. Finally VERY SLOWLY try open your hand you will find that some of your fingers will not move.

From "Scientific American", in the age of dinosaurs. Use an flash equipped camera, take the film out, or set the flash to "test". Get in a totally dark room, with no light source whatsoever. Put a newspaper (rember those?) on the floor, with the headlines or a big bold ad showing. (this is really cool if you haven't read it yet) Let your eyes get accustomed to the dark. With your eyes wide open and staring at the newspaper (if you could see it). pop the flash. Close your eyes, and be careful not to move your head too much. You can still read the paper!. Try the same game without the newspaper and so you could see your legs, and then squat down. Your body will feel "squatting", but your eyes still see "standing". Be careful not to lose your balance.

Lift your right leg off of the ground in front of you. Then, make cirlces with your foot counter-clockwise. Then draw an imaginary '6' in the air with your hand. Your leg should switch directions! It will go clockwise. If not, you're probably doing it wrong. Try circling your foot clockwise instead of counter-clockwise. It will go vice versa.

When you get up in the middle of the night and your eyes are adjusted to the darkness, keep one eye closed while you turn on the lights. the open eye will adjust, but the closed one will not, and when the lights go off all sight in the open eye will be black but you'll still have night vision in the one you closed. go into the dark and stick a penlight or keychain laser into your mouth. something with a momentary switch. when you turn it on, you can see a vague redness (or whatever color) light but it's not coming from anywhere in particular. it is like all of your peripheral vision glows a little bit. with the laser you can actually shine it on differnet parts of the roof of your mouth, and "see" the redness in some places but not in others.

this is very difficult to get, but once you do, its easy. stick the tip of your index finger in the webbing of your other index finger and middle finger. something like this: <- . now push your index finger (the one in the webbing, we'll call him finger 1) so that the joint closest to your nail bends up and the other joint bends down. _/\ like that. now put this under your chin in the fat, so it makes a air pocket, then bend the joint near your nail down, and if you get it right, it should make a popping noise.

Cross your fingers then touch a skinny object like a pencil or your nose with the groove formed in between your crossed fingertips. Since your fingers are crossed your brain thinks that the object is located "around" your fingers even though it is between your fingers. I discovered this when I was in first grade and everybody probably thought I was a freak since I was always touching my face with crossed fingers. Anyway, another thing that feels really weird is that you can make yourself "breathe" without actually using your diaphram. If you take in a breath then hold it with your mouth open and twist your torso back and forth you will hear a weird sound that sounds like breathing. I'm not actually sure whether or not air is entering and leaving my mouth since I can't feel it but it sounds pretty odd. This was discovered much more recently, only about a couple of years ago in high school.

While sitting in front of a computer monitor, take a 30cm wooden ruler and clamp it tightly between your teeth with one end protruding. Twang the free end of the ruler while looking at the monitor. The image on the screen will wobble in a very odd manner.

I suspect this won't work with those newfangled flat LCD monitors. If you haven't got a wooden ruler, anything you can hold in your teeth and twang should do the job.

A great trick for parties: You and a friend both need to be drinking beer from long necked bottles ( Stella bottles are the only ones that I know work for certain). When your unsuspecting friend is distracted, beer in hand, lightly tap the base of your bottle squarely on the opening of theirs and it should cause ALL of the beer in the bottle to instantly froth all over their hand and if they're not quick enough down their trousers too. Stella bottles work, because they have a conical base - don't know which other brands do, but if one brand doesn't try others until you get the desired result ;)

Here is an interesting effect that can cause much amusement and pain.

When current flows into an inductor, energy is stored in the magnetic field. The larger the inductor (and therefore the larger the magnetic field) the more energy is stored. If the current is suddenly cut off, the energy can no longer stay in the magnetic field, and so transfers into the coil as voltage. This will cause a very large voltage spike across the inductor. So......

Take two AA batteries, and alot of wire. Have enough wire, preferably magnet wire about 26, 28 gauge, to have about an ohm or two of resistance. This will allow several amps to flow. Wrap this around a iron core, or permalloy, or something else that focuses magnetic fields well. Get as many turns as possible. Hook this up to the battery. Holding both of the wires, disconnect suddenly.

I haven't tried this myself, however, from what I have heard, if done right the shock can hurt for days.

Rig it up with a relay so you can switch it off and shock your friends (or enemies to be, whatever you prefer).

First of all, just a simple physical trick; this works best with a small, weaker person and a big larger person. Have the smaller person put their hand on their head. Have the larger person try to pull the hand off. The larger person will be able to whip the little person around, but never pull of the hand.

Secondly, just a warning. There is quite a bit of mention here about the "breathing ddeply, stopping and temporarily losing conciousness" tricks. What you are actually doing with that is starving your brain of oxygen, so it shuts down your consiousness so as less of your brain is taking in available oxygen. What ends up happening at the moment you lose conciousness is that some of your brain cells die before your brain can protect them. If you do this to often, you can end up being extremly suseptable to headaches and migraines in later life.

take a large amount of aluminium foil and press it to the front of a TV that is OFF. the remaining static should hold it there. then take one crocodile clip or wire and attach it to the foil and another wire and attach that to a water pipe or another electrical ground. basically you can do a lot of stuff with this, you can attach the wires to two separate metallic objects such as a drinks can and then with an insulator (plastic rod or other plastic or glass object) move them near each other. as you turn the tv on a spark will jump between the two cans. if not move them closer together. DO NOT TOUCH THE FOIL OR EITHER CAN you will get a total bitch of a shock, will hurt for bout 10 minutes. i've had sparks jump 2 or 3 inches to hit me as well so generally avoid going near it. when you are done touch the two cans together to drain the power and peel the foil of (preferably with gloves in case of remaining static charge)

Fill a large bowl with cornstarch (the more the better) and keep adding water until it's a thick liquid.

When you get it right, you can blow on it and run your hands through it slowly and it looks and feels like milk. But if you punch it, your hand bounces off the surface. If you squeeze it, it feels like rock, but when you relax, it dribbles through your fingers like water.

Craziest thing ever. I'm a college student, and some friends and I made a big tray of this stuff and played with it for about three hours. It's simply amazing. Easy to make, too. Cornstarch is cheap.

(I think the reason this works has to do with the way long chains of organic molecules slip past each other, but I'm not certain.)

Shamanic Dieting
Get a single raw almond, walnut meat, chunk of jerky, etc., put it in a baggie and carry it around with you. When you're hungry and have not yet eaten, go somewhere private, close your eyes, and eat it in small bites. The flavor is stunning. And usually this lets you skip lunch.

this works best in the outfield of a baseball field)at night . spin around really fast for a looooong time and let your arms float out beside you. after spinning for a very very long time, close your eyes, drop to the ground, and roll up into a ball. do not open your eyes. you will imeadiatly feel like the ground is tilting and you are just going to slide off. the longer/faster you spin the bigger the effect. oh yeah, when you open your eyes and look straight ahead you will think you are acually looking the other way. keep posting i love this stufff!

Here's a mini one:

Got a stainless steel sink? Turn the water on full cold, and listen to the wooshing noise. Pretty much white noise and fuzz. Now, turn the hot water on, and suddenly the pitch changes. Two neat things happening at once here: The metal sink is tightening and loosening like a drum and changing the pitch, but the weird thing is the water sound doesn't read as having any particular pitch at first- it sounds like static, all mixed up. But, when you change the general distribution of all the different pitches, you hear the change, and suddenly you can tease out a single pitch from all of the noise. Congratulations, you now have a heat controlled drum that wastes water.

Stand in front of a window, almost touching it. Look at the house or building across the street. Take note of the size of the building - not estimating its height in feet, just looking at the size of the visual image. Now turn around and walk to the other end of the room. Turn back around and look at the building from your new position. It will appear several times larger and twice as close.

The next time you're out for a run (or walk), try altering the natural swing of your arms while maintaining your usual foot pace: swing them twice as fast (bizarre), twice as slow (cool upper body slo-mo effect), or keep them straight down at your sides (Ministry of Silly Walks?).

Keith Millard posted a trick here about making breath noises by altering the shape of your mouth and throat. There's actually a much weirder thing you can do by singing a constant note instead of just breathing. Look up throat singing, also known as overtone singing, on Google. With a little practice you can produce unnaturally deep rumbles like a big pipe organ, twanging sounds like a mouth harp, high-pitched whistles like an ocarina, or anything in between. It's even possible to sound more than one note at the same time. Throat singing is great for harmonizing with ambient sounds and resonances like other posts have described.

NOTE: A car is a good place to practice this. Anywhere people can hear you is generally a bad place to practice.

Once I fell into weeks-long altered state while working on a big hardware project. I started working round the clock without sleep, only getting short catnaps. "Thomas Edison Sleep Mode." It turns out that others are exploring this:



Be warned: playing around with this stuff is very similar to getting into the "vision quest" mental state. It's similar to long term fasting and meditation: it MIGHT kill you or drive you insane, but usually is fairly harmless. [Later Note: Hahahahahah! Spoke too soon! On April 7, two days after this entry, I was flung into vision-quest mode and remained there for almost two weeks! Collected lots of stuff for mental derangement page. Dipped in and out of mild delusions. ]

I used to do this, they called it a 'Gong-Bong' back in the headshop days -- you squat down, and vigourously breathe in and out about 6 or 7 times; then, stand up real quick, stretching your arms over your head while going up on your tiptoes -- you'd better be near something soft, because you will be falling over, almost unconscious!

Hmmm, this could be neurologically damaging but hey, I'm still alive after many years of practising this: Take a 9v battery in one hand - moisten the 'groove under the nose' with tongue - now apply one terminal to your tongue tip and the other to the 'moistened groove' result?

get one of those adjustable lighters where you can control how much gas is released when you turn the knob. it can get pretty big....but try this...take off the metallic covering on the lighter, and push the knob upwards, and you will see a white cog underneath. push the knob left, then down, and crank the cog to the right, repeat that, and everytime, the lighter will release more fluid at a time. WARNING: the flame will get HUGE!

It takes practice, but clasp your hands, but dont let the bottom of your palm touch each other, while clasping find your middle finger of any hand . put your chin in the little crevices of where your middle finger is between the other 2 fingers of the other hand, while your chin is on top, push your middle finger with force through the 2 other fingers it was between, if done right you will hear a popping sound which sounds like you just cracked your finger, but all you did was make a vacume with your chin, with practice it can be very loud! (it takes awhile before u can do it on que but just practice)

hey, have you noticed that if you have a gameboy colour, played a game with a colourful screen at the time, then tilted or shoook the screen repeatedly, the screen will have a lot of faint lines on it (like a spoilt tv chanel). why's that?

i tried the floating when your half asleep thing years ago. i can easilly do it when i'awake, sitting upright and opening my eyes. if you do it while looking down from a window (closed, with your face pressed against the glass so that you can't see any thing but ground bellow if you dont trust yourself) you can practically feel your self falling. shaking your head makes it easier to do.

speaking of shaking heads, sometimes, waaay passed curfew (im sixteen), around 3 or 4 at night, AND after i stayed up all night on the computer, i some times shake my head quickly while closing my eyes and i see my whole vision light up, like lighting surges without bolts,for verrry sort moments. can any one explain? ...oh yeah, and whats the deal with all that dejavu stuff, is creepy...

OK, here's another one. Create a 'gravity ball'. Hold your hands about 1 foot apart from each other (palms facing inwards). Get someone to do the same but put their hands 'outside'. Now try and force your hands outwards while the other person is trying to force their hands together. After a minute or so stop. you will now find that as you try to bring your hands together there is a gravity ball between them. You can even move your hands around as if you were holding a soccer ball and still feel the effect.

Ever wondered how to distort the fabric of space? Read on....... This page is a good thing to try it on. Put your hand about 6 inches away from your face (palm towards you) and spread your fingers out. Now, focus on the text on the screen. If you move your hand slowly enough, you will notice that the writing on screen 'warps' slightly as you move your hand around. You have to move it fairly slowly otherwise you don't have a chance to catch the effect.

This takes a bit of practice, but it's a neat little trick. Make a fist with no holes except on the end with your index finger. With your dominant hand, put your thumb on the lighter like you're about to light it. Stick your thumb and the lighter into the hole in your fist, making sure the whole thing is more or less airtight. Then press down on the little button that makes the gas flow out (but don't light it yet) such that it's going into your fist. Hold this for a second or two, then simultaneously light it and open your fist. If you timed it right, you should get a small fireball that looks really cool in a dark room. It lasts for such a short period of time that you hardly feel any heat, let alone burn your hand. A few tips: You actually need to strike the lighter a fraction of a second before opening your hand in order to get it to work. Also, don't hold the gas button after you strike it, because you WILL burn yourself - all you need is a small spark to light it.

okay, this really is a cool thing. ride your bike down a gravel road for a fairly long time, and stare at the gravelthe whole time. (using periphial vision to watch where your going.) you can look up once or twice if need be, but only for a short time. now, stop biking and look at the sky. it works best on a day with only a few clouds in the sky, but the sky and just about everything will look alsmost as if it its moving away from you. or maybe it looks like an overlaying negative of the gravel you were just looking at, only in reverse. i used to go bike riding as a kid for the sole purpose of experiencing this.

This one may have been submitted already: A cool trick with a grape is to cut it nearly in half, leaving just a small bit of its "skin" connecting the two halves. Now microwave it. If the conditions are right, you will see an electric current pass through the skin where the two halves are connected! It fries the skin and seperates the two halves rather spectacularly. I really don't know how it works, perhaps it has something to do with how thin the grape skin is (a few hundred microns, so it is on the order of microwaves?) (Inhomogeneoties in the microwaves?) Cool nonetheless

Spit Ball Cannon! First thing you need to do is get a bic pen. You need to get the cheapest kind they have, the clear ones with the little cap at the end. It's probably sitting on your desk. Remove all it's parts so all you have left is the long hollow tube. Next grab a hanger from your closet. Cut the top of the hanger off. Straighten 2/3rds of it as best you can. Next take the last 1/3rd and wind it in a coil. Now start making spit balls. You need two. The first one make just small enough so you can jam it down the pen about 2/3rds. Use your hanger to jam it down. Don't make it so bing that it won't come out! Next make the second spit ball a little bigger. Put this one in the pen as well but near the end. It should be fitting just a snug as the first. The pen actually tapers slightly. You are now ready to fire. Hold the hanger so that the straight part is just inside the pen up against the second spit wad. Now hit the springy coil end of the hanger as hard as you can. The pressure from the second wad pushing down on the first blast the first one out of the pen like a cannon. At 15 feet you could serious injur someones eye, and at 30 feet they will still definately feel it.

Position yourself so that you can see a television screen in the next room. This effect is enhanced if the screen is relatively small, is black and white rather than color and shows a static or slowly moving scene. (Security system monitors are ideal.) Now get some crunchy food such as pretzels, hard candy or crushed ice and chew it. The image on the TV screen will dance and vibrate but everything around it will seem normal.

Go outside and find the biggest, thickest blade of grass you can (The weedy kind with the ridges works good). Fold it in half along the crease and place it between your palms (Your hands should be in the "pray" position). Blow. If you did it right, the blade will act like a reed and make a loud squeaking noise. When I was a kid, we'd smuggle blades of grass into the classrooms and annoy the teachers. Also: when you are lying in bed half asleep, imagine yourself tumbling through space. If you're good, you can convince yourself that you are really falling and you'll reflexively thrash around trying to break the fall.

Breathe through your butthole: climb on your bed, get on your hands and knees with your head down, and stick your butt up into the air. Hold this position until you feel your sphincter "relax" and your colon fill with air. It may take 5 or 10 minutes. Now, when you breathe in, air gets pushed out of your colon, and when you breathe out, air rushes in your butthole to fill the vacuum. It's a euphoric feeling. Don't push too hard though, or your butthole will close and you'll have to start over again. Bouncing on your back: lie on top of the bed, on your back. Bend your knees above you, and raise your arms up into the air so only your back is touching the bed. Now, try to bounce just by rhythmically straightening and contracting your legs upward, creating resonant momentum. No cheating with elbows! With practice, you can clear the bed by a foot or more. It's also very very funny for anyone watching.

Me and about six other people took it into this room with the light off, and turned the flashing one on. We all started dancing, and i looked at this little light on a plug socket, and slowly the light began to move across the floor! i showed my friends, and they ALL said they could see it too, apart from one person who was just drunk... weird... i have loads more weird stuff but its all mine! hehe

This is the greatest and best site in the world. Trubite.
Couple of things... As a guitarist and general interested-in-stuff person, I wonder what the effect would be of running a video signal through a delay pedal, as opposed to audio. I don't have a delay pedal, nor access to one. But go and try it! Or how about a phaser pedal?
Secondly, a variation on a post below. With your eye open, press on the eyelid above, so that you can still see out but you're not poking yourself in the eye, because that would just be silly. (But rich in comedy value to onlookers.)
Soon (10 seconds ish) you will lose sight in that eye - don't worry, it often returns afterwards. Keep pressing. Strange patterns appear. Not organic, random patterns but symmetrical patterns of straight lines and circles. Explain that! Eh? Probably far more entertaining when you're high. Do both eyes at once! To make sociology fun, try this while standing in a packed bus or train.
Once again, great site.

I stepped off and fell, even though thy lifted me not even an inch off the ground.

My father was a musician for many years and the stories of bands doing drugs are on the money. He used to come in off the road and do this trick for us, much to my mother's dismay. Even though when he did this in hotel rooms on the road, I'm sure he was pretty stoned, we as children found it fascinating! Take a wire coat hanger with no paper or plastic or cardboard on it and pull it down from the center to form a long diamond shape. Take one (or more) sheets of the plastic that comes over your clothes after you get them back from the dry cleaner and tie this in several knots forming a small rope of sorts. Take the hanger and in the part you bent on the bottom, tie the plastic sheeting to it. Get a 5 gallon bucket (my dad used a large trash can) and fill it about halfway with water. Hang the coat hanger in an open doorway with the bucket directly underneath it and light the bottom of the rope you made from the plastic with a match or lighter. Turn of the lights and sit back and watch. The plastic will drop off in colorful blobs and make a noise as they drop to the bucket. An awesome show! Thanks for the memories Dad :)

Mirror game from childhood: Get a largish mirror (10"x12"...a shaving mirror is too small), hold it horizontally, a little below your clavicle...and, looking only in the mirror, walk around your house on the ceiling. You'll be stepping high to get over doorways, ceiling fixtures, etc. This doesn't work too well outdoors.

Take an average size candle and melt it onto your hand(it doesn't hurt,if it does hurt you,then dont be stupid,stop doing it,but for most people,it wont hurt) cover your whole hand,but make sure its in a fist.make a few layers of the wax on your hand,now,try to get your fist out of the encasing without breaking the wax shell. if you can,congrats you have a cast of your hand.If you cant,then either just break it and throw it out,or you can hold your hand a few inches over the flame and watch it gradually melt off,but dont get to close to the flame, it's hot.... duh. ok now try it again.but do it on your other hand. then you will have a pair of wax hands.

Rubber Fingers (I don't know if this hase been posted, so forgive me if it has.) If you take a look at your fingers (not the thumb)you (should?)see that it has three segments. The first one with the nail, the second in the middle, and the third, attached to the palm. Now if you bend your pinky down, so it is bent at the palm and after the third segment, but not at the joint between the first and second, with the whole thing forming a 'u' shape with your palm and the third section being the base. You should now be able to tap at the nail and it will bounce like it's made of rubber! works with the other fingers too, but not as good. Note: Only bend one finger at a time, or it might slack down.

More Fun With Plasma Globes Take a store bought plasma globe and gently, *with an insulator*, place a metallic wrapper from gum, candy, etc. I've noticed that Airhead wrappers are nearly the best. Using a knife with a sharp point, touch the wrapper gently. Wear gloves or hold the knife by a plastic area, because the metal can burn you almost instantly, and it HURTS A LOT.

Ha cool party thing...I'll try and explain it best I can... You need five people to do this. I would try it but I don't have any friends, and no money to pay people. Get someone to sit on a chair. Preferably someone heavyISH. Fat chuffers not allowed. The other four people stand at each corner of the chair and clasp their hands together, then extend their index fingers only (so you have a pensive pair of hands..). All four people can then try to lift the chair - with the person on - by putting their hand under the seat and lifting with their extended index fingers. It shouldn't work. If it does get someone heavier. When they've stopped trying to lift the chair, each lifting person hovers their hand over the head of the person sitting down - the first person places the hand over their head, the second person over the first person hands, the third over the second persons and so on. Then each person does the same with their right hand. So now you have the four lifters with their left and right hands hovering over the sitter. This does something spooky, I'm sure. The lifters take their hands away, then clasp them together and extend their index fingers again. Try to lift the person in the chair, and you should be able to lift them. Magic. If it doesn't work, your not magical enough. Kill a unicorn and pick your nose with it's horn to achieve the desired level.

Stand in a doorway (helps if the door's open) and bring your arms up until the outsides of your wrists touch the doorframe. Keep pressing your arms HARD against the frame (as if you are trying to raise your arms with the doorframe stopping you) and do this for about a minute. Then, walk into the middle of the room and let your arms completely relax. They will begin to rise of their own accord! Spooky...

buy a 2-liter bottle of soda. Drink in your spare time. When it's empty, suck out all the carbon dioxide for a MASSIVE HEAD RUSH!!! Works best if an inch or two of soda has been allowed to go flat. You will feel a burning in your lungs(though not at all painfull), shortness of breath, followed by a reddish-orange haze filling your entire field of vision. Wicked good stuff, we called it "sclhuffing", "orange haze", or "kaz"

Wow.. I started out with a whole bunch of things to try, and then I started to see them one by one appearing on the list. So the ones I have left aren't the coolest, but... Look up a recipe for sterno online, or go to your local cook-it-at-your-table restaurant (the "embers" are usually sterno). It burns at a very low temperature. Set it on fire, dampen your hands with water, and juggle flaming snowballs. You'll need to re-dampen your hands after a while. Make a longish mask for yourself (out of black construction paper, or something) that restricts your vision to a field of view a little smaller than your palm at arms length. Wear the mask while playing soccer, cooking dinner, whatever. After a few hours, take it off. You will have great appreciation for the amount of information your brain has to process as you suddenly realize how vast your real field of vision is, and how bright the world is. Acquire _The Flying Circus of Physics, With Answers_. Have fun replicating many of the items therein. (Like plunging your naked hand into a vat of molten lead. If you do it right, your sweat vaporizes and forms a protective gas "glove." But don't do it.)

Odd that nobody's mentioned this one. Find a wall with patterned wallpaper. Not just any old patterned wallpaper, but with a small repeat-distance -- about 3-4 inches is good. Now, move up close to the paper and focus on two different bits of the pattern, one with each eye. Get the two bits of pattern to sit directly over each other, so that you can't tell they're different. (A bit like those Magic Eye things, only there's no hidden image). Move away from the wall a couple of feet. Now, reach out and touch the wall where you're looking at it...

Weird Levitating Arms I didn't see this one listed, so if it is a duplicate, please forgive me. Place your hands at your sides with your palms facing inward (towards your legs). Find a door way and stand in the middle of it. Extend your arms away from you body so that the back of your hands contact the sides of the door jamb. Press your arms outward like you are trying to make the doorway wider. Do this until you can't do it any longer, then quit. Walk away from the doorway and your arms will float up on their own with no effort at all. It is kinda wierd feeling. Have fun! Hacker

This is a list of just plain fun things to do. I do these every once in a while and it attracts attention, whether it be wanted or not.

Here goes:

1. If there is a large crowd of people looking at something which requires perfect silence from the crowd, make sure you're in the back, out of anyone's view. Make a very weird noise. For instance, push the back of your tongue against the back of your throat (near your uvula) and it will make a "ghe" noise. People will wonder about you...

2. If you are on a manual, small form of transportation on a road for cars, wait for an extremely polite driver to give you extra space. If you're lucky enough, he'll have his window open, then you scream "WATCH WHERE YOU'RE DRIVING, (place random cussword here)!!!"

3. If you really want to give someone a fright, be in a car with them at night. Whil the car is off, and it's just you two, hope and pray that they stay silent. Look at the back of a seat or the dashboard. DO NOT make eye contact with them. After a while, scream at the top of your lungs. For added effect, get out of the car and run away. The other person may have a heart attack.

4. This is a cool way to take ANYBODY down. Get going at a good speed, a mix between a slow trot and a jog, then leap up and hook your arm around someone's neck, not pulling it. If they stay up, say, "You passed", and if they fall, you've got them in a headlock!!! This is really only meant for short people like me.

Please use these "tricks" and enjoy. Oh, email me of any experiences that you feel are worthy of sharing. Thanks!

When you are stuck in the car on the highway do this. Look down at the road centered on the white lines. right before a line passes the car blink. It will look like the lines are moving away from you but eveything else is coming towards you. This works best if the street is smooth. Don't try it while driving, just when you are with your grandparents or anyone else you don't want to talk to in the car.

O.K. Say you and a friend are at a fast food place. (Did you say it?) You ordered a diet cola, your friend ordered cola sans the diet. They guy behind the counter forgot to push down the little button on the lid that says diet, how can you tell the difference with out tasting them? Take the lids off and put the straws in making sure that the ice doesn't keep the straw from moving. Wait a few moments. The straw in the diet cola begins to collect lots of bubbles immediatly and starts to rise in the cup until it falls over, the straw in the sans cup pretty much stays put. Something to do with covalent bonds. They are weaker in the diet cola.

Another strange idea inspired by Bill B's Caught in a Face Warp. And I just noticed it now so it behooves me to share!

Scroll back up to the fat necked/pointy headed geek. Take anything that's flat with a straight edge like a 3"x 5" index card and hold it against the computer screen so that the face warp image is only half exposed.

Watch Bill B's face tilt back and forth like a drunk weeble-wobble.

I must say that I too am having way too much fun and I am very close to damaging my self!
Esperance, NY USA - Saturday, May 03, 2003 at 19:31:02 (PDT)

I can't claim credit for this idea but it's still fun so I wanted to pass it on.

This is actually the brainchild of the late famed ventriloquist Paul Winchell whose alter ego was Jerry Mahoney. As a matter of fact he actually marketed the idea for a while many decades ago.

Get a mirror about the size of a standard sheet of paper so that it's easier to see yourself. Using the medicine cabinet mirror, position the portable mirror in such a way so that you are looking at your face upside-down.

Now concentrate your view on your teeth and chin. Once you can do this fairly easily, draw upside-down eyes and a nose on your chin. Make sure you use a marker that washes off easily! Now back to the mirrors. Give your new character a voice and start talking! Pretty wierd, huh?

Now, in his kit Paul Winchell actually included a mask that represented the body of this rather strange puppet and a concave mirror in order to flip the image upside-down.

It must have been hard to entertain an audience with this style of puppet since you had to have the mirror directly in front of you to see the resulting image. I saw it demonstrated on TV so all the studio had to do was flip the image electronically.

Maybe it was intended primarily for the user's enjoyment. Paul Winchell did admit to being a shy, withdrawn young man with a stutter.

Once again, if somebody walks in on you while you are engaged in entertaining yourself, you are on your own! Maybe this time however you can put on a show for them but first you will have to master standing on your head so that they can see the full effect.

By the way. See how much practice it takes to make this little character stick out his/her tongue in the correct direction so that it doesn't look like he/she is licking it's nose.

Get a camera without film and go into a pitch dark room. (by yourself or with friends. ..freakier by yourself) Find a painting or picture of anything freaky or gothic like ..ex. skulls, ugly faces. Something that isn't pretty to look at. Now make sure your friends are all looking at it and flash the camera onto the image..it'll light up very bright and vivid-like.. you'll feel like you're in a dream. Right after the flash everything will fade to black but the image will still be floating in your mind.

Make color meaningless and irrelevant. Maybe even your entire existance!

I discovered this effect many years ago while waiting to get into my high school early one morning.

On a clear morning look up at the sky and stare into the sky until your brain only sees the blue of the sky and nothing else on the periphery.

This is the beginning of the eerie feeling that nothing else exists but you and the sky. Continue to stare into the sky until the blue becomes so overwhelming that you can't see it anymore.

Start to ask yourself wierd questions like: "If I can't see any other color, is it really blue?" or "If I can't see anything , am I really here?"

When you have sufficiently diminished your existance to a vacuum stop and look around you and breath a sigh of relief as you reassure yourself that you were there all along!

So is the school building! No biggie! Friday afternoon is not that far off anyway!
