Take the Money and Run


Introduction: Take the Money and Run

how to make ten bucks REAL easy.

Step 1: Find a Person

This is real easy. find someone with 20dollars in cash.
(you will also need 20 dollars)

Step 2: Almost There...

Have the person with 20 dollars place the 20 on a table.
You also, put the 20 on the table.

Step 3: You Almost Have Made 10 Dollars!

Ok, so, next, you ask the person, "would you pay me 30 dollars for this 40 dollars on this table?" Of course he will say yes.

Step 4: Ow Its Done

This is a bit hard to explain, but i will do my best.

So you each put 20 dollars on the table right?
so now there is 40 dollars on the table.
your victim, paid you 30 dollars for the forty on the table.
you only put in 20 so you made 10 bucks

(oh yeah, this wasnt my idea)

    It reminds me of the Abbott and Costello gag. "I need change. Do you have two twenties for a ten?"

    good idea but I don't think many people would fall for it

    You have to think about it, which most people don't (Think, that is.)

    It dosn't need to be $20. It can be any ammount, and the ammount the other person gives you needs to be around 3/4 of the total ammount.

     I tried to do it on my brother. He didn't have $20 cash. Only a $20 gift card, $7 in change, and a $10 bill...

     i will have to try this on my friends!

    my monkeys dead grandmas but didnt even fall for it :(

    stupid foo were im from u jump them beat them leave then come back and finish them up

    This is a complete copy of another Instructable that does the same thing in the same way! Find your own material!

    want to know how to identify if a bill is real? this is the simplest way, and you can do it anywhere without anything. What to do: hold it in the light. somthing should appear on the bill 5$ - 5s should appear 10$ - a face should appear in the white circle 20$ - a face should appear

    no, you ed up with 30. you put 20 to start with and got 30
    your victim gives: 20 + 30=50
    you give: 20 + 20 he gave = 40
    you just pinched 10 dollars from his wallet.

    no no no the other guy is paying you thirty for the forty on the table but you only put in twenty to the forty so he is giving you ten extra dollars

    nopewenty in. they give you thirty. figure it out.

    I know I make money out of it. I figured it out a while ago. You're useless. That didn't help at all. Thanks for trying, Dr. Fail.

    And 'ur' = 'your' and it should be 'you're'


    I'm stupid? Look at your spelling. "ur" "nopewenty" Good game.
