How to float a pin on water


Do you see that? Do you? It's bloody magic init! If you ever wondered how that Jesus bloke did it, then read on, gentle reader, read on.

First off, stick a bit of bog roll on the top of the water

Drop your pin, or in this case, needle, on top of the bum paper

The paper slowly sinks to the bottom of the glass

Leaving the needle on the surface of the water. Stick 'surface tension' into Wikipedia if you want to understand the messy science. However, it's probably more useful as a "I bet £10 I can balance this pin on the top of your beer" thingie. Or wine, if you're posh or a lady.
