Diply 18 Apr 2018

My friends are always impressed by the random things I make, but I'm not usually one for party tricks. I do have one friend who loves to ham up the party, and another one who will try and make a bet with you on anything.

While these tricks might be pretty pointless, you can totally use them to ham up the party or win a bet. You'd be surprised at what can surprise and shock a group of grown adults. With these, I'm super impressed!

1. Break an apple in two with your bare hands.

This trick has a little bit to do with some science-y things that no one but scientists fully understand. When the temperature of water just above freezing, adding it to ice will freeze it instantly.

For this trick, you're going to have to lie — just a little bit. But isn't that what every real magician does anyway? Instead of a string, use a rubber band and jiggle the ring up by sneakily pulling on the elastic.

The key to this is surprisingly a drop of juice from a citrus peel. Give it a try at your next party and maybe you'll be able to tell everyone, "This is how I got my girlfriend to date me!"

I'm going to let you in on a secret, I'm totally afraid of fire. I will not touch any kind of matches or lighters, and I make other people light things every single time.

Doesn't this watermelon look totally weird and kind of naked? It certainly is an impressive party trick, but I really don't know how to feel about it.
