Obviously there are no strings. Was is just sheer will and strength?

Probably supports in their baggy clothes. Look how the sleeves cover where their hands are grasping the stick.

It`s basic magic and conjuring really. See, they chant then they sit next to each other and one picks up the magical stick. Then the other using mystical thoughts focuses on being as light as a feather and slowly pushes himself above his friend/lover. Then their minds join forces and they focus on him hovering above.

@fancythat - it was probably taken with a camera not from the US. Most of the world uses gregorian little-endian date format (day-month-year), while the US uses middle-endian date format (month-day-year).

@fancythat

Not an american date format. It<`s DD/MM/YYYY (the logic way).

Do we really need to type out an explanation? Take ten seconds to look at the picture and THINK and you should see how it is done. If you can`t figure it out then just stick to believing in magic and god.

Really? This trick has been explained on IAB so many times. You guys still don`t comptehend that the bottom guy is sitting on a metal plate that is welded to a ridged metal structure which travels through their clothing inside of the bamboo pole?

A sturdy metal fixture attached to the floor, runs up the first guy`s clothes and sleeve, through the pipe, through the second guy`s sleeve and into a little thing for him to sit on.

Insular American is American.

I use the ISO 8601 date system in spreadsheets and file numbering, and it looks like this: 2012-10-22. Otherwise I use the system used by most people in the world "22-10-2012". Unless I am dealing with Americans and they can`t handle anything but their own parochial system.

Steel plate under blanket; lower man provides "ballast." Pipe welded to plate goes under his robe, out his sleeve and up hollowed bamboo stick (note sleeve bunched up at wrist to hide bend). Pipe returns under upper man`s sleeve, down robe and to a small seat.

No, a steel support structure inside the rather obvious baggy clothing. Great look, not hard to see how it`s done. Saw an almost identical trick in Covent Garden last weekend.

Not that complicated, there`s a framework hidden by their robes.
