Let’s all admit that at some point of our lives, we have judged and laughed at people based on their appearance. Josh dressed up as a homeless man pushing a cart and went to several fancy restaurants and asked if he could eat inside. Most restaurants staff refused to let him in and some directed him to a ‘cheaper’ restaurant near. An hour later, Josh came back with a brand new black Ferrari and taught them a lesson. In this social experiment, Josh Paler Lin shows us why you should never judge a book by its cover! Watch how restaurant hostesses react after he first shows up as a homeless man, then back again an hour later sporting a more wealthier appearance. Credit to Josh Paler Lin.

Robby tries to keep his job, by begging his employer to let his stay, asking if there is anything he can do to earn more money so he doesn’t get evicted. First, he sits next to a well-dressed man on a park bench, wailing over the phone. Not even half a minutes goes by, the guy gets in Robby’s face, asking him to “shut the f*ck up" and “could you go and deal with your life sh*t somewhere else?" in the coldest possible manner. He does the same scenario in front of a <a href=" " target="_blank">homeless man</a>, who doesn’t even think twice before jumping to his feet and offer what little he has gathered that day to help the young man in distress. “Why are you trying to help me though?" Robby asks the kind man, to which he answers that he is used to living on the street and that he wouldn’t want someone else to go through the same. Robby is touched by his selfless gesture and returns him his money, along with $300 in bills as a thank you.

This Chewing Gum Social Experiment Will Surprise You2m41s

This Chewing Gum Social Experiment Will Surprise You

Most of us were scolded in school if we ever chewed gum in class. We were told it’s rude and distracting, which was probably true. But according to this social experiment , it would seem that chewing gum makes you more likable. Probably because chewing gum makes you look like a rebel in the stiff world we live in. In 2013, chewing gum company Beldent set up a social experiment in the form of an exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Buenos Aires to get to the bottom of these notions. The exhibit consisted of pairs of identical twins, seated in front of a table with two buttons and a headset. Out of all the visitors of the “exhibit”, 481 participated in the experiment, where they were asked series of questions regarding the subjects and all they had to do was press the button corresponding to the person they think matches the description. One twin was chewing gum while the other simply sat motionless. When asked questions about the twins, nearly 70% of visitors reacted more positively to the one chewing gum. These are all impressions one MIGHT get from someone gnawing at a piece of chewing gum, but it really depends on your personal experience.
