    Just wondering if anyone knows any tricks that we can do that seem to defy physics. Bending spoons, levitation, that sort of thing. I know it's gimmicky and there's a trick to it, but it's cool!

    Has anyone played "Light as a Feather; Stiff as a Board"? Someone lies on their back and 3-4 people surround him/her and try to lift them with their fingertips. It's awkward and doesn't work out, but once you all start repeating "Light as a feather; stiff as a board" and imagine the person lying to be light and stiff, you can really lift them with so much ease!

    It was shown in the movie The Craft, but we did it at school and it really does work! Is it a mind trick or a physics trick?

    Share any more if you have any, yeh?

    Hmm. These three sisters I knew when i was a child. Well we used to always play those games. It so happens that their house is the house that I believe is haunted, because that is the place where two nights in a row I had the same dream where skeletons flew in from a window and circled around over my bed and left.

    Nothing can defy physics. There are only tricks that appear to defy physics. You can't make a rabbit appear out of a hat. You can make it look like a rabbit appeared out of a hat, but the truth is, it didn't.

    A miracle is defined as "An event that cannot be explained by the series of events that preceeded it." And making a spoon bend by force of will would fall into that category. See Carl Sagan's Baloney Detection Kit, posted at various locations on the WWW.

    Uri Geller was a stage magician originally. Then, at some point, he started saying he could really do his trick with his psychic powers.

    He has been caught out cheating on a number of occasions, using known magician tricks and claiming they are psychic miracles.
