    THIS IS OLD. I did this like a year ago in the kitchen that`s 10 feet away from me right now.
    Lame.
    There`s a freaking metric f*ckload of video`s demonstrating this on the internet, IAB shouldn`t need them!

    oh yeah, and can someone name the band and song that`s playing in the background? me and my friend are disputing who it`s by, and we can`t do a lyric search because we can`t understand what he`s saying :P

    I still don`t know how the trick works though.
    stupid science.

    It`s just a balancing trick. The burning of the rest of the stick is just show casing. Most of the weight is in the handles of the 2 forks, which are conveniently located on the opposite side of the pivot (where the toothpick tounches the cup)to the rest of the weight, which is in the fork heads. It`s a simple party trick, but still fun to watch, and even better and if it goes wrong and then person attempting it slowly starts to lose it...

    It`s easier to balance two forks of a tooth pick that`s balanced on another tooth pick in a salt shaker. And more impressive.

    ok.....the green toothpick symbolizes that you are gay...but it counterbalances with the semi-straight forks thereby making and conducting a state of equilibrium within this homosexual society of ours :)

    2girls1cup is fake anyway. It`s cake batter. Yeah it comes from her a$$, and I wouldn`t eat it, but it`s cake batter. That clean girls one looks too real though.
