Use leverage to make your friends look dumb!
This week we've got 3 quick and easy ways to punk your friends at the bar, each using leverage in a counter-intuitive way:
Have your friend put his right cheek and the right side of his shoe up against a wall. Under his left foot put a $20 bill. Without holding on to anything, (and without letting go of the wall), challenge him to lift his left foot off the bill for 6 seconds... he won't be able to do it!
With butt and heel against the wall, bend over to pick up $20 laid on your feet. No butt sliding! Similar setup here, only facing away from the wall: have him put the backs of his heels and butt touching the wall. This time put the $20 on top of his feet. Again, without holding anything, without losing contact with the wall, challenge him to simply reach over and pick up the cash. He might be able to reach over and pick it up, but will definitely be falling forward afterward!
Have your friend sit relaxed in a chair with no arms. He should be slouched with his feet outward. Place your thumb gently on his forehead, and challenge him to stand up: because he has no leverage, you should find it hilariously easy to keep him stuck in his chair using only one finger!
