What's so "experiment" about it? It's a trick using science, so what? That doesn't make it "an experiment."

This is pretty nifty, in a something-to-do-before-your-friend-comes-over kind've way, to surprise them.

When I read this description, I thought of that Thomas Dolbey song "She blinded me with science" and that soundclip of the old guy saying "SCIENCE!"

When one side burns, it burns away the wax, reducing the weight on that side. It then lifts the lighter side, the flame on the other side has more wax area to burn at once, burning that wax off, while the lighter side has less wax area to burn, so the heavier side gets lighter as it burns faster, lifting it and making the original lighter side heavier, and the process continues.

How does that qualify as science? MAYBE MAYBE physics. But a see-saw is something a four year old can do.
Nice music, though.

Not an experiment.
Kinda neat as a party trick I guess...

He did those fraction calcs. wayyyy to fast.

also, I think that the swinging should've blown the candles out too! anyway, this was cool... I'm thinking about doing this... far away from curtains and carpet, though...

OH and to get the wick on the other side, he'd have break off the wax, right? so why did he measure it before...?

Although that was pretty cool, the idea of it being any sort of science experiment was ruined by the use of inches and fractions, who doesn't used metric system and decimals o.O?

The white background was probably a bad idea.
Should have been a darker colour.

btw any1 who cant figure out whats happening, think about how much faster a candle burns when you hold it upsidedown, now imagine two candle ends battling it out, voila one dancing candle rampage.
