Here I present to you a magic trick that is sure to impress people - friends and 'non friends' alike! It can be done anywhere, with very basic materials. It is a perfect hack to make friends on the first day of school, college or when starting a new job. So, lets get started!
Step 1: Gather Your Supplies!
1. A pen and paper
A doodling app on your phone/tablet (I used EVERNOTE PENULTIMATE*)
2. A friend you want to trick
3. A ring

Step 2: The Trick! Part One
Ask your friend for a three digit number. Remember the number. Put on the ring and act as though you are trying to see the future. But actually add 2000 to it and subtract 2 from the result. Write this number as your 'prediction'. Mine is in red.
Step 3: The Trick! Part Two
So, for example, if your friend's number is 683, then your number will be 316, because 6 (friend's) + 3 (yours) = 9 and 8 (friend's) + 1 (yours) = 9 and 3 (friend's) + 6 (yours) = 9.
Repeat this step once more.
Step 4: Add It Up and You Are Done!
Voilà! You just tricked your friend into believing that you are a fortune teller!
