Submitted by: SaintPatty 9 years ago in Funny

It"s subtle but effective. Not just for the office either--try it on someone at home.

What keeps the liquid in the cup is air pressure. The pressure pushing the postcard onto the glass is stronger than the weight pressure of the liquid pushing downward. (I watch a lot of `Beakman`s World.) ;-)

oh that`s nasty.


I like it.

although one that doesn`t ruin their work and is subtle but very annoying for them is to make the image on the screen go upside down by holding `alt gr` and pressing the down arrow. Works on most computers.

OLD! Did that in college. A better office prank is plastic-wrapping, (or use a big piece of cardboard) the door to their cubicle and filling the entire space with packing peanuts.

We used to do this to dorm room doors- fill the space with whatever... it all falls into the room when they open the door. ;P

Hahaha! What a stupid junior high prank, it must be the greatest ever. If you ruined everything on my desk by doing that, you would be owing thousands. That would be the greatest ever.

haha my dad and his friends used to do this to a waitress EVERY time they were getting ready to leave...and they`d watch her as she picked up the cup and got almost a full glass of water EVERYWHERE!

so they were nice enough one day to show her how to slide it to the end of the table...put her dish collecting tray under it and boop...slide it into the tray! she was AMAZED!!! *blonde cough blonde*

Laminated paper works good.
My friends and I did this with a full pitcher of water at a restaurant a few years ago. I felt really sorry for whoever was busing tables! We used a laminated menu which worked great.

dont wanna sound clever but...

it`s all about air pressure. as the paper is pushed away it creates a slight vacuum pulling it back again. Well that`s what i think

I did something like this back in highschool.

Basically, the paper makes a seal along the rim of the glass, letting you place it upside down without spilling it. Then you slide the paper out, leaving it upside down with the liquid still inside. It`s a got to do with cohesion theory and pressure differentials, so Dylan5121 is correct.

I think what makes it work is the outside preasure of the air.

yes its the paper. you need to use a stiff piece of paper, like a postcard, and put it on top of the cup. i`m not sure wat exactly makes it work, but wen u turn the cup upside-down, and let go of the paper, the liquid does not fall down until you remove the paper from the cup.
