Rick was highly in debt, so he figured out a way to make money by doing something no one else could. He went around to all of his friends and people he worked with and bet them $50 that he could put a pin into a balloon without popping it. He let his friends and co-workers try to do it, and they couldn't, but he did it easily. How?

There are 2 answers.


Answer #1:
If you used the hint you could have got this one. One thing he could do is let the air out of the balloon before he put the pin in.

Answer #2:
The other thing you could do is put something like tape or plastic (anything like that) over the place you would put the pin in. That way it would stop the balloon from popping.
