According to his bio, Richard Wiseman is the most followed British psychologist on Twitter. He’s researched and written books on a bunch of topics, from luck to illusion to persuasion. In fact, he refers to his particular field as ‘quirkology,’ which is exactly the kind of term we’d all expect some UK soft sciences geek to come up with. Anyhow, we all live in a world where parlour tricks are hard currency; that is to say messing with our friends’ heads for fun and profit is never not a fantastic idea. The latest video from ol’ Richie here explains — in simple yet concise detail — how to execute a number of brain twisters with extreme prejudice. Do as he says and you’ll be the president — nay, king — of the nerd community, which I’m sure has its perks somehow.
