Scratch that - Cylenders with water inside of themselves work too.

That`s how the BIG cup filled the others - or maybe not cylenders - dividers? What ever!

what he did is he had rigged glasses. they had more than one section too them. the design of the glass covered up the dividers and the murky water also covered the dividers up so you wouldn`t notice. BUT!!! you can see the divider in the big cup if you pause it when he is pouring the water into the little cup.

WE HAVE A WINNER!

That`s how it all went down!

The last pours were into a third section that was very thin. That`s how he did it.

The Fabricant may be correct that there was water in there before, but that was only half of the story! By the way, everyone, there were no cylenders inside the glasses. There were just (probably) dividers made of plexy or something. Who knows. It`s fun just to think that it was baking soda and vinegar or that it may have been MAGIC! OOUOOUOOUOOH!!! ;-()

^ at last, someone that can actually grasp how easily this is done. You get trick glasses like these in kits designed for ten year olds for crying out loud. Cant believe some of the retarded theories some people have been putting forward. That is all. Pass it on.

Geez. The solution to this magic trick has been said a few times already.
Each glass contains a thin tube in the center filled with water. Look at where he/she pours in each case. He/she pours at the edge of the glass so not to hit the tube with the liquid. Second he /she makes one mistake in this video. When he/she transfers all the white liquid to the last glass, he/she pours too fast. If you slow down the video right near the top of the last glass, you can see that the middle cylinder overflows before the liquid reaches it. If i were him/her i would have made sure my video wouldn`t have had that easily detectable mistake.

No one cared what the sex was of the person doing the trick because discussing the actual trick itself is more interesting.

The sex of the person in the video is inconsequential, unless you want to use as a basis for some sexist joke. "AHAHA, LOOK. It`s a girl doing that trick, and we all know girls are tricksies!!"

converse uk, that genie joke is far too stupid to be funny. nice try though.

by the way, if i ever found a genie, my first wish would be for three extra wishes. then i would have five. and i could use one of those five to wish for, say, ten more wishes. then i would have fourteen wishes. eventually, i could have millions and millions of wishes.

The milk is not diluted with water...you would get the same effect if you smeared/thinned the milk over a plate or maybe a table. Jebler was correct. The bigger glasses have a cylinder in it. Watch the last cup when he fills it. Just before it`s full you`ll see the liquid hit/splash on the cylinder.

Dude look at the milk in the first cup in the beginning and look at the "milk" in the four cups at the end. See how less of a white it is? Yeah, that`s water mixed with it.

Its not milk... look at all the sediment at the bottom of the glass when he pours out the first one. I think thats why the liquid seems diluted towards the end... there`s less sediment because it sticks to the other glasses. And the "tube theory" is pretty obvious, I think. Look at how careful he is to pour just against the edge of the glass, not directly into the middle, as you would naturally do.

no man, when he pours it into the biggesdt cup you can see the liquid hit the top of the inverted cup on the inside. he just used wierd glasses so you couldn`t see the other upside down glass in side it. i`m sure there are other ways to do it too, but look when he pours into the biggest glass, you can see the lliquid hit the other cup.

You can also see the rim of the inner cylinder of cup 5 when he`s emptying it into cups 2 and 1 highlighted against the black shirt. If you bother to look for it it`s there and it explains the whole thing.

Like I said before, look closely inside the 2nd glass when he`s shaking the last bits from cup 2 into cup 3. With the new angle and against the guy`s black shirt you can see the curved rim of the inner cylinder that contains the water. It`s not baking soda, ice or just a small bit of water at the bottom, it`s water in a cylindrical reservoir you pour around that mixes in when you empty into the next cup. The pattern on the cup is to make that cylinder harder to notice but right from the start you can see vertical columns inside the `empty` cups that are more hazy than the rest. That`s because they`re filled with water. Look at the part I`m talking about, emptying cup 2 into cup 3 and watch cup 2 when the guys black shirt is behind it, you`ll clearly see the rim and realize what I`m talking about. It`s not that complicated.

How can it be baking soda and vinegar.

I`m more inclined to believe that there`s already liquid in the other glasses and that there are cylinders or some other reservoirs in the glasses holding that water. Explains why there`s enough liquid for each glass at the end.

There is water in the glasses, and in the last cup there is a smaller cup turned upsdie down (I don`t know about the others). You don`t see the water because of the patterns in the glass. The person also is very carefu to pour the milk down the side of the glass so it will go under the water and fill like normal while mixing with the water.

All of you that think the glasses are filled with water are WRONG.

You can see whatever he is pouring clearly fall to the bottom of the glass, if any other liquid was in there, it would cloud and mix. There also wouldn`t be a water hitting glass sound as it poured in.

Now here is how he really did it. Look at the last big glass. When he pours it in, it looks like the liquid is hitting something in the middle. It is.

The bottom of each glass comes up to about a cm below the top. The liquid pours in around the upped bottom, making it look like more liquid is in the glass then there actually is. Now the uppded bottom is hollow with a open top, containing water. So each cup has extra liquid to fill the larger cups, and fill the smaller cups at the end.

I`ve done this trick a couple of times.

"look closer. when he pours the drink whatever it is. it hits the bottom of the glass directly. if they were filled with water it would hit the water first and take a while for it to mix with the water. wouldn`t it?" you people are ridiculously retarded, the water is so small it`s irrelevant.

Half the people here must be on something, especially considering how blatantly it dilutes.

Chances are he has some sort of device inside them to let the water into the milk easier.

Both explanations are right, there`s a hidden chamber in each cup AND water already in that chamber. Watch how deliberately he pours close to the edge and how firmly he holds the `empty` cups with full water chambers so as not to spill or shake the water. The reason the milk doesn`t dillute faster is because he`s only pouring into the exterior chamber, the inner core of water doesn`t get mixed in until he empties into the next cup. When he goes backwards, he only fills to the top of the interior reservoir so you don`t see the liquid level mysteriously not rise as the reservoir fills.

If you watch closely when he shakes the last drops from cup 2 into cup 3, you can clearly see the rim of cup 2`s inner chamber since you`re looking at it from a different angle. That gives you an idea of the relative sizes of the hidden reservoirs

You could see how the milk (or whatever) watered down by the end of the clip. Obviously there was some sort of secret / hidden chamber that was holding water. Hmmm... not that cool of a trick. ;-/

10Bears. This doesn`t explain how it can then fill all of the glasses. There must be added liquid to preform this part of the trick. ie. the water inside the cylinder.

the glasses are like a glass within a glass, giving a thin area to fill with fluid with the middle of the glass still empty. You can see this clearly. The milk looks more watered down in the biggest glass because the gap being filled is so much thinner. Try it yourself, hold a smaller glass inside a larger glass and pour water into the gap. It will only take a small amount of water to make the glass look full!

Jimmy-Joe finds a Genie lamp and rubs it. Out comes the Genie and asks "Master you have released me from the lamp and I grant you three wishes, what would you like"

Jimmy-Joe scratches his head, then answers "A bottle of Guinness that never gets empty. "Granted master" retorted the Genie and produced the bottle. Jimmy-Joe was delighted and got drunk on this one magic Guiness bottle for weeks then he remembered that he had two other wishes. He rubbed the lamp again and the Genie appeared. "Yes master, you have two more wishes, what would you like?" "You know that magic, never ending Guinness bottle" he asks the Genies. "Well, for my final two wishes, I`d like another two of them"

As a few have pointed out, you can clearly see the milk (or whatever it is) splash off a cylinder, just as he`s topping off the last glass. I would assume that the cylinders contained water. When he poured the milk, it was poured into the edge of the glasses so as to not show the cylinder. The water from the last glass (in the cylinder) mixes with the milk and helps to fill up the other glasses (even easier because of the cylinders).

You`re right ConverseUK.I agree with the separate compartment theory. Those glasses have decreasing volumes in proportion to their size as they get bigger.

The liquid is being poured into a space between the real glass wall and a fake wall inside.

This makes the `milk` look less dense because that`s exactly what it is...it`s less dense due to the reduced depth of the liquid.

The fact that the liquid gets lighter doesn`t necessarily mean it`s getting watered down. It can also mean that it`s simply poured in a thinner space in the glass. Especially in the last glass you can see the cylinder some people mentioned very well.

Last time I checked milk wasn`t as chunky and gooey as that stuff. Well except if you forgot to take it out of the sun for a day or two ;)

Look closely at the last glass. You will see that in the end he is pouring on a glass cylinder that is standing in the middle. Watch it a couple of times and you will notice it.

There`s actually a few different ways this could be done...

I think glock is onto something, however, it doesn`t explain why the liquid was diluted...

I think there was a smaller glass filled with water inside the glass, and the person poured the milk from the sides and after a certain amount the two mixed and looked bigger..

Yes. I suspect the glasses were graduated in diameter. We never see the circumference of the glasses.

*looks again* if there was liquid in the glass, it would have dilluted like crazy by the end and you`d totally know.
At first I thought the glasses only appear bigger on the outside but are actually the same size inside, but then when he worked in reverse that destroyed that theory.
So I still don`t know. The simplest, and probably true answer is that he`s pouring liquid between the inside walls of the glass instead of an inner cup.
