Brian gets tons of trick submissions every week, but are they any good? Find out as he performs a few of them before a panel of judges, including Tekzilla's Veronica Belmont. Tune in next week for Part 2!
In this episode, we get 5 tricks for the price of 1! And all of them were submitted by Scam School viewers. Try these out on your friends and let us know what you think.
Tricks 1 & 2:
These might be fun to try simultaneously. First, grab an ordinary wooden kitchen match and place it just beyond the first joint of your index, middle and ring fingers (middle finger on top, and the index and ring fingers below the match). Try to break it using ONLY the strength of these 3 fingers - no leverage alllowed! Second, grab a rubber band and stretch it over just your pinky and index fingers and try to get it off your hand WITHOUT using your thumb or rubbing it on anything else.
Grab 9 notecards and write the letters I, E, G, P, E, C, Y, A, and T on them. Try to spell three words horizontally and three words vertically using only those letters. Give your friends a time limit of 5 minutes to solve the puzzle.
Grab 7 notecards and write the numbers 1 - 7 on them. Arrange the numbers so they add up to 12 horizontally, vertically and diagonally. Again, set up the challenge with a time limit.
Using 10 sugar packets, try to arrange them into 5 rows of 4 packets each. See how long it takes for friends to solve this one!
Only suckers pay full price. If you love alternative apparel brands like Kidrobot, Hurley, and Stussy but hate wasting all your cash on them, listen up! You can score these premium brands at UP TO 80% OFF every day. There's a new invite-only shopping club just for guys called JackThreads, serving up street, skate, and surfwear brands at prices that will melt your brain. There's a wait-list to join, but if you head to jackthreads.com/scam you'll get instant access to all the killer hook-ups. GO NOW!
