brooms standing by themselves

The Amazing Balancing Brooms

I heard on radio this morning that you can make brooms stand and balance by themselves. I heard them say this only happens twice in a year because of the sun being on the equater. This messes with the magnets or something like that. Didnt hear all of that part. Got home from work and I decided to try it out. It amazed my whole family including myself.

This has NOTHING to do with planetary gravity, the earth's orbit around the sun, or magnetism. That is just a bad hoax. you can balance a broom (or an egg, for that matter) any day of the year. WPSD, check your facts!

LOL my dad called me one of the nights you could do this and told me about it. I had never heard of it before, but it works and you can feel the magnetism when standing the broom up, so weird!
