Ahhh! How did he know!?

Male 782
interesting
Female 4
Well, not as good as he thinks...eh?
Female 850
I beat him. I was on the arrows.
Female 2
I tried but didn`t beat him.
Oh well.
Female 131
There`s a subliminial message at 1:21
Female 920
It`s logic and dependent on the numbers.
Male 3
Take a look at it, it is possible to land on the "House (Left "O") using this logic.

The only mistake was that he ended it one count too late, or he took the wrong picture off.

He had the right idea, just one mistake.

Male 3
To tell you the truth, he did make one mistake that I`ve seen.

I followed the rules, as we all started on the top right corner "Start", and I`ll use Janis` picture to show us where he made a mistake.

Quote:"
X|O|X
-----
O|X|O
-----
X|O|X

(Filler I removed, ran out of characters)

If start on an `O`
Even - Stay on `O`
Odd - Go to `X`

If start on an `X`
Even - Stay on `X`
Odd - Go to `O`"

Our first move was off the "Start" (Top right corner "X"), thus putting us on "Zero (O)" or "Blank Face(O)," in which he removed "Start(X)"

If I`m not mistaken, the first count was to 7, so let`s work this out.
1 - Start on O, end on X
2 - Start on X, end on X
3 - Start on X, end on O
4 - Start on O, end on O
5 - Start on O, end on X
6 - Start on X, end on X
7 - Start on X, end on O

Female 131
AAAAHHHHH!!!!! that worked when I did it.... two times!!
Male 1,023
well someone made a miscalculation`s because i was on the v
Male 163
He sucks
Male 163
He was wrong the first time I did it.
Female 878
I was on the arrow.
So I probably did something wrong.
Male 49
hmm he was wrong for me.
Male 1,072
DiePSPolice your calling everyone idiots and what not and retards, but seriously your in the 30-39 range and your arguing over the internet on some poo video get over it
Male 543
WRONG!!!! I picked the Q, not the happy face! HAHA! He was damn close though.
Male 10
only guessed the last one right
Female 3
i actually failed it,he took away the sticky note i was on...
Male 2
about 80% people here says he got it wrong......i feel sorry for our future...
Female 37
Thank you!
Male 225
Pfffff I watched his other two videos both use camera tricks, In one he even admits it. I know this is going to sound gay but after reading Derren Brown`s book on things like this, It really effects the way you look at things. On his website he asks you to see whether a guy is lying or not, and it`s genuinely is easy, the video where the guy says I, and reefers to himself alot is the one where he tells the truth. This is because he has a personal relationship with the film, Which makes it much more likely to be his favourite
Male 126
For anybody that says he "got it wrong," tell me exactly what you did and I`ll point out where you f*cked up.
Male 382
That`s a bloody clever use of mathematics - clear brain on this fellow, no doubt.
Female 41
Psh I win.
Male 205
Z0m6 H3 H4><0R3D MY BR41NZ!!!!!1337=ME!!!

Too bad he used subliminal messages.

Female 6
It doesn`t always work. He chose a box I was on and I fallowed the "rules".
Male 870
No, janus is right. I didn`t watch the video till the end, but the guy was doing exactly what Janus described, and unless he messed up at the end, there is no way to "get around" it, whether you revisit squares or not.

RedNine, it`s just dandy that you got a 100% in algebra or whatever math you do in school. If you could also learn to think before you speak, and stop sounding so confident when you don`t know what you`re talking about, you`d probably be set for life.

Female 45
i ended up on the q in the end and not the happy face
Female 128
Ahhh, RedNine is right, the people who said he was wrong aren`t stupid. I tried this quite a few times (it`s a combination of sadness and procrastination)and most times he took away tiles I wasn`t on, but one time he took away one that I was on. I kept travelling back and forth between two tiles by the way.
Male 562
worked for me lol, weird but prbbly random
Male 108
failure
Male 99
That`s an entirely different trick.

The one flaw in this is that he allowed you to revisit squares you`ve visited before. So I could just alternate between two squares over and over again. THEN he will eventually take away the square I was on.

It`s not entirely flawless. And just because some of you tell everyone that they can`t count when they say he got it wrong, doesn`t mean you`re right. In fact those telling others they can`t count haven`t even told us if the guy got it right or wrong.

Tell me I`m wrong in math, and then I`ll show you my 100% average in Mathematics.

Male 294
I don`t understand why people are all like: THIS IS MATH, OMGWTFOWNZORZ!!! It`s not math.

It`s not even clever.

For those who couldn`t even find the manual dexterity to even get it right, you need to go back and learn to count.

For the rest of you, here`s how it works.

Take a tic tac toe board. Set it up like this

X|O|X
-----
O|X|O
-----
X|O|X

Start on any `X` (because I like `X`, it works just as well the other way around.

Now, since you`re on an `X`, if I say move one square horizontally or vertically, no matter what you do, you`re on an `O`.

Likewise, if you`re on an `O` and I say move one square horizontally or vertically, no matter what you do, you`re on an `X`.

So all I have to do is remember what you started on and how many moves you make.

If start on an `O`
Even - Stay on `O`
Odd - Go to `X`

If start on an `X`
Even - Stay on `X`
Odd - Go to `O`

I remove a tile of whatever type (X or O) you`re NOT on.

And that`s the trick

Female 195
sorry for the thirs post hehe, but I spelled weird wrong and I felt the raging need to correct myself =)
and again...WTF HOW DIDNT I SEE THAT THE FIRST TIME IT TOTALLY FLASHES=....( I am a little disturbed now...
Female 195
ok sorry for the double post but I just watched it again and I totally saw it flash. now, how the hell didnt I see that?! Creepy!!!!!!
Female 195
holy crap 1:21 thats so weired! how did i not catch that during the vid?
Female 14
I was on the happy face when he said i wasnt. lol, liar! oh well, its a one way video, cant always be right.
Male 437
HAH, i beat him, when i was on the arrows he took the arrows off and i laughed at him
Female 137
I WAS on the blue symbol at top, when he took it off, and I did notice the happy-face subliminal message
Male 701
he got it wrong on the last one
maybe i did something wrong...
Male 60
Female 365
aha! he got it up to the last one.. i wasn`t on the smiley face.
Male 145
ooooh subliminal messaging..
Male 876
He sucks, I was on the squiggly lines and he said I wasn`t! I win old man!
Female 1

Go back to when the timer reads 1:21. I hoped I had beaten the subliminal message but failed.

Dude thats sooo coool thx

Female 77
it`s not a prediction, it`s math. duh.
Male 266
ahhh wtf!
Female 250
hee hee as it went on i worked out how to fool him hee hee, i beat him!!! i feel so powerful }-)
Female 119
creepy but cool
Male 870
Not very impressive, this "trick". (He removes squares that you can`t reach in an odd number of moves. That`s why you can`t move diagonally.)
Male 319
It`s not a prediction at all, actually. Nor was it a subliminal message or anything like that. It`s just simple mathematics.
Male 14
He got it wrong on the "Arrows" and the "Q", lol.
Female 52
lawlz^

Haha. That was awesome. HE DUN GOT ME. ^_^

Male 4,246
He can REEEEEEAD MIIIIINDS!!!! ;-() Oooooh! MystEEEEErious!!! <waggles fingers>

SuriOokami: Yes, probably everybody noticed that, but I can understand how you thought it was just you since only a few DOZEN people commented on it.

Male 919
cool trick there!
Male 26
Sorry, I cant move my finger and count at the same time... lol jk he got it right. Every time there was at least 1 square that was impossible to land on. Just keep trying it, you`ll see.
Female 1,025
boo. i WAS on the q.
Male 1,725
omg lol i didnt c the subliminal till i read the comments and looked

lol thats cheap

Female 42
No sh*tting you, it really does.
Female 42
Did anyone notice that between 1:19 and 1:21, it flashes a picture of the smiley face that you`re supposed to end up on?
Male 1,725
simple math all it is is that you CANT be on those squarers without being able to go diagonale :)
Female 37
Excuse me, whatinthe42o (and several others), but I`m not in the 13-17 group for one thing, and I didn`t try to throw the guy off. I didn`t come into it thinking I would "beat" him, I honestly thought he would get it. If I made a mistake, I made a mistake, but I don`t recall it. I didn`t go "AHAHAHAHAHAH I got him!!!1", okay? So calm the hell down.
Female 582
OMG
Female 359
GOVERNMENT CAMERAS IN OUR COMPUTER MONITORS IT`S A TRAP AAAAAAAAAHHHH PHONE TAPS AND CONSPIRACIES

But seriously, that was kind of stupid. Math tricks are some of the least appreciated and least known about tricks I have ever seen, and people use this to their advantage.

Male 1,217
FTW
Male 1,265
Ok, let`s have a show of hands, who went in diagonal directions?
Female 111
HAHAHA! MY FINGER *WAS* ON THE WAVY LINES!!

I suppose it`s a little pathetic that I`m gloating xD

Male 49
!!!!!!!!!!woah
Female 5
WRONG.
I picked the Q, not the smiley. Idddiooot.
Male 1,704
to dude who predicts: get laid
Female 1
O_O OMG...oh did he do that?? i wonder what the trick is???
Female 222
aw i was on the Q in the very end. darn
Male 493
"didnt work then again im not a retard"

Male 74
If he got it `wrong`: YOU CANNOT COUNT. You fail at life. Go back to gradeschool. It is a math trick, it is not subliminal, it is not psychic. IT IS A MATH TRICK. There is no gray area, either he got it right where you were pointing or you cannot follow directions. Simple as that.
Female 655
:) woahh
hes cool i like him :]
Male 126
Oh... my... god... I am floored at how many people are too retarded to follow instructions. Please tell the rest of us the moves you made that managed to defy mathematics.
Male 734
Oh, wow. Basic mathematical concepts. How amazing. *Yawn*
Female 1,262
Gotta copy that.
Female 1,596
Dang, that was some pretty schweet use of math there!
Male 274
didnt work then again im not a retard
Female 488
Whoa! Subliminal message! That`s so awesome.
Female 1,697
almost, I stood in the Q
Female 986
HA! FAIL! I was at the V when he said you wouldn`t be there >:)
Female 25
i did it twice, & the second time i had my finger on the wavy lines when he took it away. so he`s wrong. ha.
Male 623
actually all his predictions were wrong except for one
Male 164
is der a camera lookin at me? no? den i am freaked out...ooo cookie!
Male 104
Pass.
Female 42
o_o He only got one wrong....ITS LIKE HES HACKING MY BRAIN.
Female 122
when he sed you wont be on the arrows i was on them :S also: lisuhdfoiuashenfaoi34uhn8qo
Female 2,084
what!1 how, that was awesome. grrrr. i wanna know how he does that.
Male 46
wrong on the last one, noob.
Female 93
ahahah nigggg was wronggg!
Female 7
The image on 1:21 isn`t a subliminal message. Youtube selects a screencap during the middle of the video to use as the preview picture for the video when someone clicks on it. If one wants to get more views, a smart Youtuber would insert the best screenshot in the middle of the video so that Youtube would choose it to be the default picture. Better preview image, the more it attracts viewers.
Male 2
That was so creepys. I am so freaked out
Female 876
He pulled away the one under my finger. :<
Male 493
"WROOONG! Mine was on the Q."

Learn to count.

"HE WUZ WRONG!!!!!!!!!!! lol"

Learn to count.

"COMPETELY OFF! HE NEVER FOUND ME! >:("

Learn to count.

"i was on the house when he took it away so i guess im in limbo now"

Learn to count.

"but when I did it the second time, he told me I hadn`t chosen a certain a square, and that was the square my finger was on."

Learn to count.

"Ahhh! Wrong!! I was in fact on the wavy lines! That retard -_-"

Learn to count.

"AH!!! He`s Wrong!"

Learn to count.

"of course, the old subliminal message trick"

You are retarded.

Female 208
AH!!! He`s Wrong!
Male 1,406
It`s impossible to land on each one that he picks you didn`t touch, not sure exactly why, probably some place that says why.
Male 452
Ahhh! Wrong!! I was in fact on the wavy lines! That retard -_-
Female 601
WOAH, how are those sticky notes sticking to thin air?!

(just kidding)

I don`t like it when people fool me :-( I still have no clue how this works. I`m math-retarded.

Male 99
Got me the first time, but when I did it the second time, he told me I hadn`t chosen a certain a square, and that was the square my finger was on. He said you could revisit squares as many times as you wanted, so I did, and it turned out I had my finger on the one he said I hadn`t chosen.
Male 1,228
COMPETELY OFF! HE NEVER FOUND ME! >:(
Female 198
i was on the house when he took it away so i guess im in limbo now
Male 528
of course, the old subliminal message trick
Female 811
It`s so obvious how it works, lame.
Female 441
HE WUZ WRONG!!!!!!!!!!! lol
Female 190
WROOONG!
Mine was on the Q.
Female 690
I tried to get to the ones I thought he was going to take off but I couldn`t.
Male 632
8=) SUUUBLIMINAAAAL
Female 221
holy f*ck!! how did he do that?!
Male 385
And, seriously, everyone who thinks that he made a mistake has just been added to the universal list of people whom you should *never* *never* *NEVER* take seriously. He can`t get it wrong, but clearly some people (I`m looking at *you*, punkin, stuckinmud, sinfulsisi, kidatheart, and any of the others on other pages) are so mind bogglingly stupid that they can`t count and move their finger at the same time, or went diagonally, thinking, "rolf imma pwn this nub!!111" The 13-17 crowd is making me fear for the future of our species.
Male 483
ha ha ha i made my own one of these
Male 385
Math is not psychology.
Female 43
he was wrong....wrong wrong wrong.....)-|
Female 1
It didn`t work for me. I beat him. Hahaha.
Male 632
That was stupid I predicted what he was going to do after he started counting the first time.
Female 1,007
Damn it. And I had it planned out from the beginning.
Female 1,890
he got it wrong i was on the wavy lines at the end n i did choose the q thingy
Male 275
I used two fingers. It still took the ones which i wasn`t on. Which kinda says something.
Male 493
All your responses make me weep for the future of the human race.

1) If he "got it wrong" and he pulled off a square you were on: YOU FAIL AT LIFE. Learn to count.

2) If you can`t figure out how he did it: YOU FAIL AT LIFE. Get off the intarwebs and try to stimulate your brain with something other than youtube videos.

Male 1,364
its easy to figure out how he did it, he picks a number so you can not land on the thing he chose
Male 167
that pretty cool, subliminal messages are fun, i didnt even notice the 1:21 thing
Female 37
Wrong. He didn`t get it right.
Male 128
he picked a square I was on.
Female 1,832
Woot
Male 703
stupid smilely face...
Male 625
one of the oldest tricks on the planet. snoooooorrreee.
Male 331
NO WRONG i was on the curvy waves when he removed it!!! DUMASS
Female 285
ok... sorry for a double post, but do you people seriously think this is about subliminal messaging?! Just make a note of what he removes and then TRY to land on that note... you wont be able to!
Oh and people who say he gets it wrong... you just can`t count/follow instructions
Male 108
GET OUT OF MY HEAD !!!! :(
Female 285
simple, but very well done!
Male 38
It isn`t about sublimal messages! It`s probably just a joke or something.This is pure maths.
Male 232
Stop it at one minute twenty one, Tell me it isn`t about subliminal messages. It uses both.
Male 1,114
dmaster91, nice spot
Female 407
I thought it was interesting.
Male 400
it doesnt always work for me too
Female 119
It didnt work for me, he got every one wrong.
Male 185
Simple really, how stupid are some people, i did a similar trick on my brother when i was younger.
Male 240
Oh and by the way, he isn`t wrong, he CANT be wrong, you just have terrible motor/counting skills
Male 240
AKA - planetary chase, its all maths for those people who fear god a little too much
Female 1,496
I`ve put my finger on worse things.
Male 85
u dumb or something?? it`s about math! not subliminal messages..... you can do it as many times you want you`ll always end up with the smiley
Male 2,004
how the hell did he know where my finger was!?!
Female 1,412
I was on the Q at the end.. just as he goes ` i predict you didnt pick the Q`
Male 35
It`s so simple. you can do it with a deck of cards too.(takes longer though)
Male 55
:O SCARY
Male 916
One by one he takes away the cards you couldn`t have possibly landed on, no matter which way you went. The fewer cards there are, the more your moves will be limited, all the more so because he decides how many steps you can take. In the end there`s a 1-in-1 chance for you to land on the smiley.
Male 1
It has nothing to do with subliminal messages. After one move from start you are on either the circle with a line through it or the unhappy face. After another move you are on either V, wavy lines, or happy face (he removes start). The trend continues so after any given move you are either on the corners or center or you are one one of the sides. All he has to do is remove a sticky note you can`t possibly be on and he won`t be wrong. Then he just narrows it down until you are on the smiley face.
Female 399
Well, I was on the arrows when he told me I wasn`t so I guess it doesn`t always work.
Female 262
Great! You just don`t notice the smiley face at first!
Female 511
I got bored and lost count... that probably makes the test not count, huh? Oh well.
Female 496
David Copperfield did it better than this guy.
Female 170
OK... right from the beginning I chose that one. That`s a bit freaky.
Male 232
YAY maths tricks. Whoopdeedoo
Male 838
Great! Math tricks...
Male 78
FAILED, he didnt predict anything :P
Male 143
amazing
Female 182
he was subliminally messaging us, damn it
Male 204
he went to fast
Male 5
i paused it right on the sublimnial message!

hahahaha

w/e it was weird he was wrong on a couple of em for me!

-Knox58

Female 9
oh i get it now :-)
Male 3
Go back to when the timer reads 1:21. I hoped I had beaten the subliminal message but failed.
Male 298
poo im scared
Female 9
wow scary? now im stupid so how is this simple math?
Female 66
woaahhhhh....i think it`s just doesn`t matter where you started off in the first place i think no matter where you move you get the same thing
Male 17
I got him. REALLY late on.
Male 629
Z0mG h0w d1d h3 n0z0rs.
I`ve seen this trick before.
Male 377
good trick though even if it is simple math
Female 13
note that he only used odd numbers
Female 40
that`s stupid! if you count high enough, there are only so many places one can go... if you take away the obvious sticky notes, anyone could do it...
Male 91
That guy couldnt predict his way out of a post-it note bag
Male 91
Yes. How.

How did he know.

?
