Do you know any magic tricks?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Cahiers intimes : One Thread
For example, the teabag trick. Take an unused teabag.
"We need to build a rocket, but there have been some budget cuts in the space program. For example, we don't need the landing capsule. Astronauts are expendable human resources." Remove the tag.
"If we don't need the landing capsule, we don't need the spacewalk cable either." Remove the string.
"As a matter of fact, we don't need the fuel either." Cut off the top of the teabag, unfold it, and shake out the tea leaves. You should now have a tube of very thin paper fabric.
"Just the rocket is enough." Place the tube upright. Light the top edge of it with a match or cigarette lighter.
"Five, four, three, two, one..."
If you don't know what happens next, try it at home. (This trick doesn't seem to be a fire hazard if done correctly, but we are not responsible for human error.)
