    If that were true, every time you took off your hubcap, it`d stand there balancing for you, just as happy as could be. :-) I like the specifics, though, "Oh, don`t back up or else you`ll have to go forward an extra thrity miles for each foot in reverse" etc. Funny, though, and nice to get the brain going this early in the morning. :-)

    The method of getting the spoon to balance is almost believable, but trying to explain gravitons ran me in circles.

    I was never good at chemistry or physics.

    Oh and, gravitons may not have been proven to exist, but that doesn`t mean they don`t. Theoretically speaking, it`s impossible to prove something doesn`t exist.

    You`re right, you cannot plugg in an electrical deice such as a leafblower in backwards.

    One can tell by the angle of his visible hand that his body is positioned to allow his other unseen hand to manipulate the magnet underneath the table. Towards the latter part of the clip, notice how his hand comes down more freely and with his thumb turned the other way, corresponding to the magnet no longer being manipulated (spoon spins but stays in the same spot).

    The magnet is considerably strong. The reason why the spoon doesn`t tip over is because the magnet`s pull is centered on the bottom of the spoon. My biology instructor passed around some small (about the size of a watch battery) magnets that had considerable pull to them. Notice how the surface the spoon is being pulled on is thin (it wobbles) enough for the magnet to pull things through.

    All in all the whole website is bullsh*t. I`d love to see Mythbusters debunk his stuff, but then Serena would succeed in his goal (wasting other people`s time).

    What Bollocks
    A) Neither "Centrifugal Force" nor gravity are forces
    B) Gravitons are THEORY we do not know any way to exploit that nor make any certain points about it because they might not even exist so we cannot say if an electron has 3 gravitons or if a proton has 5500 gravitons
    C) Why the hell mention Gauss when talking about particles with ZERO charge
    Gauss is unit of magnetic induction

    So it`s either that this guy has read the theory of quantum gravitation and is seriously retarded or knows it`s bollocks and wrote it because he wants to laugh at people who attach spoons on their car wheels

    watch carefuly than you`ll realise that spoon is places on the surface upside-down. there is a magnet on ceiling and he reachs it to place the spoon. you can realise that from the position of the hand and light. think how you would use your hands when you are putting a spoon on a table. this is a really simple thing everyone may done that.

    @ gilb: Gauss is a capitonym. "gauss" is a physical unit of magnetic fluctuation that can be expressed as 1Mx/cm^2. This is what you`re thinking of; on the other hand, "Gauss" refers to Karl Friedrich Gauss, eponymous with the unit. I`d think it likely Serena used the term "Gauss" as it evokes imagery, based on its connotations, of the magnetism with which Gauss is associated. Had he meant to use the physical unit 1Mx/cm^2 he`d have instead uncapitalized.

    @ KMetG: That`s a myth; within the constraints of formal logic it`s possible to prove a negative, but the contrary is widely assumed. I`d object firstly to your statement on the grounds "negatives" do not exist; I`m going to go all Wittgenstein on you for a moment here, and point out it`s a language problem. That is, proving the nonexistence of something is both paraphrased as and synonymous with proving something exists in place of another thing. Even nothing is something, for things are individuated from one another based on their constitution, and a vacuum can indeed be distinguished from something else; an absence of things is what distinguishes its constitution and individuates it from other things. Moreover, every negative entails by logical necessity a positive; ergo if we have the statement... say, "elephants do not exist in my backyard," we would demarcate the backyard, observe elephants do not inhabit it and thus would have proven a negative.

    (cont`d, character limit)

    However, the statement "elephants do not exist" is a much more difficult positive to state with surety, for no demarcations exist, and the statement covers the breadth of the entire universe. Thereby, what would have to be covered under our ambit of observation would be the entire universe, for a lack of demarcation is synonymous with a demarcation of everything or infinity. If this were possible, and no elephants were sighted, we could indeed prove elephants` nonexistence, but since the ambit of our observation is insular by comparison to an ambit of the entire universe as it is limited to what we`ve empirically witnessed, we can`t, for without the knowledge the authority with which the claim is made is not genuine. The knowledge is absent; thus is the authority. There of course could be an elephant existing; were one sighted, then the initial claim of the elephants` nonexistence would be invalidated, for an "all not x" claim is invalida

    ...invalidatead by the proof of a singular "one x," to whatever standards you may hold "proof," for the standards to which proof is held are the standards that determine as their corollary those to which any invalidation is held.

    @Guy6870: I`d assume that wasn`t directed towards me, since I`d actually defended the author of the site from gilb what with the "Gauss" capitonym and the claim made with regards to it; presuming what you`d said was directed towards gilb I don`t think gilb is "seriously retarded" for sharing knowledge with forum members who don`t possess the knowledge in question. Certainly there was a bit of "showing off" on gilb`s part, for to show off implies that you`re insinuating your superiority to a party or parties, and he`d indeed called Serena retarded (the implication being by comparison to him), but I don`t think this makes him retarded.

    Lolberal - so, in order to prove that gravitons do not exist, we would then have to look at every single subatomic particle of every atom in the universe and then keep track of each atom that has been analyzed. This is highly impracticle but not impossible.

    The problem arises because no-one really knows what a graviton looks like. Let`s not forget we`re still trying to prove it`s existence; would we know it if we found it?

    Some negatives can be proved, I`ll give you that. For example, cubic spheres do not exist. But an elephant is a bad example because everyone knows what an elephant is and everyone would know they`ve found an elephant if they happen to find one.

    Would you know a graviton when you saw it?

    Would I?

    The fact remains that while it`s possible to prove some negatives, I don`t believe it`s possible to disprove the existence of gravitons. The presumption would have to be that they just haven`t been found yet.

    "Lolberal - so, in order to prove that gravitons do not exist, we would then have to look at every single subatomic particle of every atom in the universe and then keep track of each atom that has been analyzed. This is highly impracticle but not impossible."

    Yes, that`s actually exactly what I was saying. I wasn`t trying to disprove the notion the disproof of gravitons is highly improbable, but rather that proving a negative is impossible.

    The elephant example stands regardless of the ubiquity of elephants. The fact that elephants have indeed been proven to exist disproves the nonexistence of elephants and thus disproves a negative; I was more trying to get across that concept by contrast to the concept elephants do not exist. You could just do a "replace" in your favorite word processor of the "elephant" string with "woolly mammoth" if you`d like, but that was not the point.

    For the record I agree nobody will ever disprove gravitrons.

    Oops, I`d accidentally written "gravitron" in that final paragraph; I`d meant to say "graviton." I seem to have mixed up the spelling with other elementary particles e.g. positrons, electrons, negatrons, neutrons et cetera.

    Oh yeha, spirithound, all he really needs to do is magnitize the spoon, and that works with any permanate magnet attached to the spoon for a long time. It can be baised to one end or another. He could have also just had one magnet higher above the spoon so it would stay upright, but concidering how lightly he touched the spoon, i would say he didn`t need to, and he easilly could have taken several shots of him touching it and cutting all the ones that he tipped too far.

    KMeTG you can`t prove gravitons by looking for them because you cant "see" them, we prove subatomic particles by proving their necessity. Such as the proof for the neutrino. We can see the effects of gravitons and so some people would say that proves them, yet others would explain the effects by other theories that don`t involve gravitons.

It`s hard to tell now adays what`s a joke and what`s really some insaine person or cult or whatever. He explains on the information for teachers page that it is a joke. He`s not trying to convence the world about the increadably false things he blogs about, it`s just humor. For those who have tested ANY of his theorys and it worked, you either have not put everything into account, discovered something truetly increadible, or you are going to be in the hospital soon.

    @LOLBERAL: glib is indeed retarded. Both centrifugal force and gravity are, in fact, forces. They both cause acceleration. force = mass x acceleration. Basic Newtonian physics. You didn`t catch that, didya, smartass? Try it. Go drop yourself off a building.

    k. We don`t use the Newtonian model however. Since Einstein we use relativity, not condescendingly what you`d termed "basic Newtonian physics." Centrifugal force is plainly fictitious and is defined to be a fictitious force. If you`d like to educate yourself on why you`re wrong, here are two links that would probably explain things better than I could.

    ^ why centrifugal force is not a force.

    ^ why gravity is not a force.

    While it`s great you disagree with Albert Einstein and all, and while you`ve every right to, you kind of come off as insecure and as if you`ve some sort of an inferiority complex when you tell me that I am a smartass and to commit suicide because I`m defending the views of somebody who is, in

    Oops, the site cut me off again...

    (cont`d)

    ...fact, right. If you want to learn more, I`d suggest you take a physics class. You could just research relativity, as well, but were you to you wouldn`t get the broader picture. Most places do offer introductory physics classes so you should be able to find one near you. I don`t see how I am a "smartass" as you`d claimed either. I apologize if I`d came off that way I suppose. When a bunch of persons brand each other a "retard," back and forth, while holding two mutually exclusive views obviously one of them isn`t going to look informed at the end of it all, so that`s why it`s generally a bad idea to do so. Instead, it`s much better an idea to love each other. If you`re really within the 30-39 age bracket it`s kind of surprising to me you haven`t yet found out pointless insults are unwise, but I`m not passing judgment on you.

    @ wauwa1983x: Was that comment referencing me...? It is very clear to me that this is fake; it`s proven both in that i) the science is complete quackery and ii) there is an "Information for Teachers" link that states directly it`s fake. I`m mostly baffled as to why everyone on this site feels an ardent desire to fervently insult each other. You`d think by some persons` comments that others on this site have butchered their entire family with the femur of their girlfriend while eating their children or something.

    Ya know what skeptics? Anything is possible.

    @LOLBERAL: No affiance dude but don`t you have something better to do than argue with a bunch of teenage fools?

    @Teenage Fools: Don`t you have anything better to do than argue with a grown man, who probably has gone through a complete education and probably teaches a class of some sort.

    I really don`t see why this is such a big deal, The author of the site can post what ever he wants and he even said it was bs.

    Why have I started ref-ing this, I don`t know. It is the weekend I am going back to school on Monday...

    you can tell its been edited with green screen or w/e because the movement of the dial on the ammeter is at a much slower fps than the spoon.

    Dan Serena has added a new video that addresses a lot of the comments people have made. This time he uses a plastic spork, and it seems to be balancing on a piece of wood on top of a plastic cup. I don`t see any wires, and you can see through the transparent plastic - so I don`t think it`s green-screen.

    Ok I do admit I was pretty vein though when I originally posted that I did not notice the "information for teachers" section

    I do think that there are enough common scientific misconceptions / misunderstandings without this guy making it worse

    You know what`s fake?

    I did that experiment. AND IT WORKS.

    I have perfectly balanced spoons.

    My next plan?
