When one Regina man’s broomstick stood straight up by the bristles for 45 minutes without any support this week, he felt there must be some advanced force at work.

“We were in shock when it actually stood there,” 76-year-old Leo Deis said.“I took a lot of physics and chemistry at one time in my life and this is new to me.”

Lately, it is actually a common phenomenon. People have gone to the Internet, posting pictures of their brooms standing with no support.

My ex-wife's broom used to do the same thing when she wasn't flying on it. :P

So this is actually proof of a ghost workman who spent 45 mins leaning on the broom.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

When I was a kid I was able to do this with one of my grandmothers brooms.
But I don't think this was due to any paranormal fact...I was just able to balance it so it would stand.

These brooms that can float are sweeping the nation.. Ha...

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

i did it to as a kid not possible with all models of broom  , never imagine a kids game could become a story like this online. apparentlly internet is not making ppl smarter but beleive in anything. and also how did the broom got almost in the middle of the room (walking :) ) or they leave it lying around anywhere in the house waiting for it to stand .

If it does prove to be anything sinister it will probably get swept under the carpet before we get the chance to hear about it.....

Well that video was pretty terrible...

The broom could have easily been balancing on that angle.

The bristles were probably worn on a slight angle from sweeping in one direction more than the other, resulting in it being able to balance like that.

Now this video is all I'm referring to, I haven't looked at anything else on the subject and I doubt I will...

This is the same effect as when a guy lays on a bed of nails. It's "surface area". Simple science people.

The bristles spread out over enough of the concrete that it balances the broom.

If you really want to impress me, turn it on the other end.

This is a story? It's laughable.
