Simple Water Trick

Ever wanted to make your friends (and enemy's) think that you have divine powers? Well with this simple and easy to make trick they will see the inner Moses in you. You need a simple bowl or plate filled with water and sprinkle it with some pepper. Put just enough so it covers the surface but so you can still see the bottom. Then put some dish-washing liquid on the tip of your finger, but be careful not to wipe it or show it to the potential "audience". Now ask your friend/enemy to put his finger in the middle of the bowl and touch the bottom. He may be skeptical that nothing will happen, but he will be right. Now you touch it. Was that a trick or what? Here is a video explaining the trick, but I suggest you do it first yourself before seeing it to surprise yourself with the result.

    This is an ooold trick, and it starts to get boring. I acctualy found something to make the pepper come back to the center a long time ago, but can't remember what it was.
