    The arm strength is amazing... It is really hard to hold things steady and out from your body like that... It was also pretty boring.. amazing, but soo slow...

    That`s pretty cool. I like it.

    I`m not gonna spoil it by explaining exactly how it`s done though, cause I`ve been doing too much of that recently.

    I know why it works, but if anything that makes it more impressive because I realise how much he has to get exactly right all the time. Unless he`s a stage magician and it`s a trick that`s fooled me.

    It`s far more forgiving than you might think. Given that the "bones" bend downwards, so the weight is all below the balance point, these things almost want to balance. I`m also going to assume that he has them marked with the points they should be placed on.

    Given all of that, it`s still very impressive, and very pretty. I can only imagine how long it would take, even with a training set, it would take me to get to the point he got to at the end.

    Even if you could see the black marks on the sticks where he balanced them, still cool :-)

    I loved the start where he balanced a small one on his finger and everyone`s like *yeah, and?!*

    the things people do to get laid...
    pretty impressive though.
    also, the music is from the group Dead Can Dance, who i think are far more impressive:)
    although i bet that thing got really heavy.

    Ok, I don`t want to demean this guy`s awesome presentation but this is a really simple physics problem...All he has to do is carefully place each stick upon the piece of twine he wrapped around each pre-determined fulcrum point...the most difficult part of the trick is maintaining the upper body strength to hold the pieces lol...
