This is my go to effect whenever there is a language barrier. Everyone understands heads or tail.

No. Not everyone understands “Heads or Tail”. Even pointing at your head or “tail” won’t help. Over here it’s called “Head or Number”. AFAIK it also won’t work with spanish speaking people (“Head or Cross”, cara o cruz).

this is why one person flips and the other calls in the air.

You did not watch to the end.

What one might means is:

“That is why I flip it and someone else calls it in the air. Always.”

Because now, short of that, I will not participate in a coin toss going forward.

Honestly, I wouldn’t even do that.

This guy’s method is very crude. There are more elegant and more controllable methods.

Heh. All I can say is I am glad I am aware of this fact now. I guess really I do not base a lot of actions on the flip of a coin by a stranger.

But when it comes up next time, glad I know.

Typically for major things where the outcome matters and coin toss might be a valid way of deciding, I really only go with cutting a deck, high card wins, there is no way anyone can manipulate that.

Super Bowl is ruined!


You must be thinking of the AFC championship ;~)

Great! Once my nephews cotton on to “heads I win, tails you lose” I’ll start on this one.


Well, that wasn’t hard. I learned the trick and so did my 11-year old in about 5 minutes.

How long until I hear from the principal’s office? :neutral_face:
