    Clever, but obviously the cards below are none of the cards above. Thanks for the link Ivan.

    There are versions of this "trick" all over the net. Usually they actually use a change of browser window or something to mask the obviousness of the trick, but oh well....

    Still amusing though, I agree.

    Hey Andy,
    First, write down all of your options before choosing a card. Then choose, check the answer, and write down what you see.

    OR play it backwards, pick a card from the bottom set, note that it does not appear in the top set. Strange how it works both ways! :wink:

    OH MY GOD! How did i not see that! i think all this college rubbish is going to my head. I'm sure i would have noticed that before i started college! I will now have to go and beat myself with a very large stick!

    make sure if you're going to beat yourself with a meter-stick, to hit hit yourself on the 67 cm mark. I learned that in college heh heh......

    If you go from the presumption that a homepage can't read your mind you will easily come to the conclusion that the homepage is fooling you in some way.

    I usually choose more than 1 option when encountering these tricks.

    Yea i know that, i was going with the assumption that it was a clever computer programme that was at work there.
