Splitting an Apple
Are you still using a boring old knife to cut your apples? If so here is another way that, if not more efficient, is definitely more cool. Hold an apple in both hands with your thumbs over the top of it; by pressing firmly and using a rolling motion, you should be able to split the apple directly down the middle.
Don't Move the Coin
Balance a playing card on the tip of your finger and balance a coin on top of that; now give the card a good flick. The playing card will fly away while the coin stays right on the tip of your finger.
By placing an egg with the widest side down into a shot glass and blowing hard directly over the top, you can cause the egg to “jump” and flip over so the narrow side points down instead.
Mix a solution of white vinegar and baking soda in a measuring cup and cover the top until it stops fizzing. Next, act like you’re pouring out the air in the cup over a lit candle and be amazed as the flame goes out on its own.
Now that you’ve put out your candle, it’s time to re-light it. Before it stops smoking, quickly hold your lighter to the smoke rising off of the wick; the flame will travel down the trail of smoke and light the candle on its own.
