The Impossible Pickup
Place a dime or penny on a bar or table and place your hand over it. You quickly raise your hand and close it into a fist. The coin is in your palm. Yet when someone else tries it, the coin remains on the table.
The secret: Put your hand on the coin so that the coin rests on the ball of your hand just below the third finger. Now just before you lift it, press down hard and quickly lift your hand. The pressure will cause the coin to stick to your palm just long enough to grab it as you lift your hand and close your fist.
