How to make easy Money

Postby QRM » Wed, 12 May 2010 7:44 pm

Go to your mates show them a print out of this image and say "I bet you a fiver the square in A is the same colour and tone as the square in B" They will be suspicious at first and just tell them no funny stuff and no strings its a straight bet. Shake on it and give them a pair of scissors to cut out the squares, watch their faces and collect the fiver. Simple....

Another way. I offer you this bet.

I'm a magician. I can convert bank notes. And I'm so sure of my powers that I even bet on them. So I bet you 20 SGD that if you give me a 100 bucks note, I will give it back to you transformed in 1000 bucks.

Of course, you only pay the bet if you multiply your money x 10, so is worthy....

Deal or not deal??

Anyone who can think will work out thats a scam bet, but the square one totally stuns them I still cant figure out how it works, already won two bets.

Squares A and B are the same colour and tone, it only becomes obvious when you cut them out and stick them together.

Pretty well known illusion (good though) based on tricks with local area contrast I guess. You perceive lighter fields relative to its direct surrounding.
First time I saw it had to take Photoshop and probe the colors.
