    group levitation

    Has anyone here ever tried the group levitation stunt. The one where four people lift one person very easily.

    Anyway me and my friends did it and we got the heaviest person and tried to lift him normally two under the armpits and two under the knees. We couldnt even move his bum but then we tried the technique using the alternate hands above the head and count to ten.

    After that we picked him up until our hands were outstretched. It was almost as if he was weightless.

    Does anyone have any explinations for this?

    Maybe he's an expert in levitation and on your last attempt he partly levitated himself and that was why he seemed so light.

    That's a grave accusation, and not to be taken lightly.

    I'm confused. Why hasn't timeshifter posted a rant about this being simple physics yet?

    So that means a client of a prostitute has to be on a plate before he can be served? Weird.
