This bar trick isn’t magic, it’s #physics @physicsfun

This bar trick isn’t magic, it’s physics. The two forks seem impossibly suspended from the edge of the glass, but they’re actually in a state of stable equilibrium with the center of mass of the toothpick/forks structure exactly below where the toothpick touches the glass. The flame fails to bring the structure tumbling down because the glass is blocking the oxygen and keeping the remainder of the pick insulated enough from the heat to ignite it further.
