How to Win at Heads or Tails Every Time?
Go ahead and take that bet. We're gonna show you how to win at heads or tails every time. You will need: a coin, time to practice and a sucker. Optional: a trick coin.
Step 1. Flip the coin into the air. As you catch it, slide you thumb under your fingers and use it to feel the surface of the coin. If it's smooth, you know it's heads. The tail side feels textured and rough. If you were forced to call a side beforehand and the coin has landed the other way, nudge it over with your thumb.
Step 2. Practice flipping and feeling the coin with your thumb until you can do it quickly and stealthily. You don't want your opponent to know you're cheating!
Step 3. Try another trick. Holding the coin near the end of your index and middle fingers,
flick your wrist up and lift your index finger, spinning the coin like a frisbee. If you do this correctly, the coin will never flip over.
Step 4. If your opponent is tipsy (or simply not too bright), say quickly, "heads I win, tails you lose." Chances are he won't catch on.
For pretty good odds, suggest to your opponent that you spin the coin on its edge instead of tossing it. And take tails. A spinning coin lands on tails about eighty percent of the time.
Step 5. If you can't master either of these techniques, buy a trick coin with either heads or tails on both sides.
Did you know: a coin lands the same way it started about fifty-one percent of the time.
