Hint: connect the pin of the stick with an imaginary line to the end of the fork and the knife... that`s where the magic happens!

Physics and magic are one and the same, it comes down to your level of understanding and knowledge of the world around you. If you don`t know poo, then it`s magic.

Physics. Beakman did this, for crying out loud... after making a fool of poor Lester.

Son of a bitch. "Where`s your God now?" doesn`t make any sense. Are you claiming that God[s] wouldn`t allow for the existence of physics?

It is just a balance trick. I remember seeing this in a Catholic School "science" book when I was in the second grade way back in the 80`s.

It`s very easy and can be explained by that wonderful thing called physics.

why do people think this is fake? It is the same basic principle that comes from those children`s toys that look like eagles and can hold up their entire weight on the beak.

What I don`t get with these illusions is who discovered that this was possible? How often do you end up in this situation completely randomly?

I vote `stoned`

No magnets, its pretty easy to do with a normal fork and spoon, the person who did this didn`t bother to light each end of the match, much better when you do that and it`s hanging on absolutely nothing

@jonn_daniel

wrong. the handles of the for and knife balance it sideways but not as a counter balance to the edge of the match. the knife and fork press downwards on the match distributing pressure to the end of the match to counter balance itself... basic physics... maybe educate yourself before insulting others to do so

The one thing missing here is the dramatic part of the trick where you put the match, evenly across the glass, then light the match on fire. The half inside the glass burns away and stops at the edge of the glass. Looks incredibly dramatic.

wow.. look at the balance point, and counter balance. the main "trick" is that the handles of the knife and fork are way farther back than the tip of the match, so the weight is evenly distributed on both sides of the match head... basic physics... educate yourselves for your own good people.

I don`t see what the title and description of this picture is trying to get at.

Why not just call it "Another Cool Balancing Trick". Is this reference to one`s own ignorance supposed to make it more interesting?

Just *WHO* is so slow that they don`t understand why that fork and knife be supported like that on a cup?

He`s laughing at your ignorance towards physics. Look at how the fork and knife are oriented - the center of gravity is inside the cup.

The angle of the fork and the knife move the total object`s center of gravity back to the tip of the match that rests on the glass. Simple trick.

Ugh....

My God is right there, keeping the fork and knife in place while making you think you did it by using a match on a glass
