Amazing....it`s obvious but it worked 10 times LOL

"It`s not really geometry. It`s the prior knowledge that the bear glass` diameter is almost twice its height."

Diameter? Do you perhaps mean circumference?

From the clip: "This bet is based on geometry, and even Paul can make a mistake in his calculations."

Ehm, I didn`t see any calculations? If anything it`d be more accurate to say estimation, as he did not calculate any numbers using geometry.

In fact, I doubt this had much of anything to do with geometry, as a cylinder`s circumference is not necessarily always a greater distance in units than the heighth of the cylinder and vice versa, which is the point they seemed to want to make. If anything, this trick was based solely off an optical illusion.

Sooo, my head`s circumference would be greater than my height, if I was the shape of a standard beer glass?
Fantastic.

hahaha well at least the ladies get it easy to get free drinks. all they have to do is come in the bar/pub and just talk to some guy and flirt around and bam you get your free drink, but if that didnt work then maybe useing that type of math will work.

Can somebody please write out what happens?
No sound =[
Male 121
speedsta, it`s called a CLICHE or STERIOTYPE i happen to know there are practical uses for geometry, i`m not an idiot. learn to take a joke and please don`t call me a dickhead

My high school physics teacher said told us how he got free beer by blowing bubbles. He would bet people that he could predict when they would pop.

He would sit so that there was a window or some light in front of him so he could see the colors on the bubble. The color changes as the bubble thins so he could accurately predict when they would pop.

yup i think this has be posted twice before, once on its one, and once as a part of a few of these things

Male 185
I`m gna try that someday...when i`m 18

It`s not really geometry. It`s the prior knowledge that the bear glass` diameter is almost twice its height. It`s more of general knowledge/trivia than geometry.

bordarboy your a dick head you say there isn`t any practical use for geometry, i use it every day at work.. there`s many uses .. moron

HA!

there`s another way to score free drinks using geometry. go to school. study nothing but geometry. become the best in the area at geometry. leave uni and discover that there is no practical use for geometry. become a hobo. beg for alcohol.

easy!

I’ve actually done this a few times at my local bar. I also have another way to win drinks using geometry… it’s called “pool”.
Female 74
I`ve seen this before- I can`t think of the sight but it shows the same people and all the tricks that they use to get free drinks. It also includes the tricks that games at a fair use in order to bring in customers. If I can find the link I will post it, but look for it! There are many better ones out there done by the same people!

This isn`t geometry: it`s just knowing the size of a standard beer glass. One of the least impressive things I`ve ever seen on IAB.
