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.

^^This........

I worked at Pizza Hut for 8 years and closed almost every night I was there, which meant sweeping. I used to leave the brooms like this in the middle of the store all the time when I left just to screw with the day managers. Though getting them to balance the whole night, and not get knocked over by the pressure change when the door opened in the morning was more luck than anything.

I can't believe this article even exists.

If it's balanced on the bristles then it isn't defying anything except a few peoples common sense.

Common sense would tell you I was making a joke. :lol:

i would be far more impressed if both the broom and the paintbrush were not flat on the bottom

Occam's razor - that is a WAY to complicated answer. The simple answer is that, it either had really, really good balance, which would be very rare but not impossible. I think it would be even more strange if this NEVER happened throughout humanity.

Also, it could be magnetism between the broom and floor.

Simple answers that it explain it like this.

I was beeing sarcastic. :lol:

No problem bro! :)

I just had found it pretty peculiar that you would take it somehow seriously. I was jokingly talking about his fridge morphing into a broom that would then stand on it's own balancing like that.

But that's me. I love beein sarcastic someitmes in a very serious way to tease poeple a bit.

:lol:

Can we start judging the general intelligence of cities based on the believability of their paranormal reports? If so Culver City gets an F.

Maybe somebody is dusting the brooms with Viagra dust? :rolleyes:

Ha!!

I used to be able to stand on my own, then I took a broom to the knee

HA!!! I reckon around 56 people will get that lol. :P

When the brooms start moving and sweeping themselves and the dust pans pick up the dust and take it to the bin themselves then I will be intrested. Til then its fun to watch my brother try to balance one while my mum says "you need to clean the floor around it first" lol

The article said 'physicists believe it is the work of static electricity'... If so, why are'nt the sleeves of the sweater standing up in the photo? A sweater will be subject to static effects A LOT sooner than a broom or a paintbrush will...
