The Magic Number

Try this mind-readng trick on a friend. Have him choose a number from 1 to 100 and multiply it by 99. Then ask him to add up the numbers in his answer. Regardless of the number he chooses, the final answer will always be 18.

For example: suppose your friend chooses the number 11.

11 x 99 = 1089

1 + 0 + 8 + 9 = 18

Make a Bamboozle

You will need: three newspapers and scissors.

Overlap the newspapers with folded sides all going the same way and roll them into a tube (see illustration). Pat ends to make even and then tear or cut unfolded edges into fourths about a third of the way down. With your finger take hold of an inside piece and pull until you have a fancy bamboozle.
