Broom Standing Up??

Whaaaat?!
Have y'all heard of a broom standing straight up on its own when the planets all align?
Jasmine was on facebook and saw a bunch of her friends posting pictures of their brooms standing up... so we tried it, and it worked.

  but my question is: does it do this all the time?
and I'm not gonna lie... it's kind of creepy looking.


I mean... how often does anyone actually try to stand their broom up on its own?
Is this all some hoax and I'm so gullible I believe it? 
I need truth! ;)

my boyfriend was freaking out about this last weekend! i think it must be a hoax, because it's supposed to be a one-day event, but i'm pretty sure you can get a broom to stand up anytime if you balance it the right way. crazy though!

Okay, I just went downstairs and made daddy try this with me right before I saw you had posted this. I had seen something on Facebook about the gravitational pull. But I just googled it and it said it has to do with the broom's center of gravity and the support of the bristles, not with anything about the planets. I wasn't sure whether or not to believe all the posts on Facebook either...

Hmmm weird! I feel gullible right now haha

LOL I saw this on facebook the other night too! I tried it with mine but it didnt work..guess its not as straight (bristle-wise) as it needed to be for this to work?? I dunno..it is kinda creepy though!

Ahhhh.... this is creeping me out a little! Haha. My family has used a Swiffer for as long as I remember, and that's what I use in my apartment, too. Now I wonder if we could get the handle to stay up straight if we balanced it right? Hmm....

I did it with two brooms. You can do it any day of the year.

We tried this over the weekend! But my broom didn't stand up! I really want to go to walmart and get a new broom just so I can try it again! =)

It looks like the mops out of that Mickey Mouse cartoon in Fantasia! (I think?)

Kristen said...

I tried it and mine didn't work. I'm guessing it has more to do with the broom then the plants. haha

Ally Garner said...

I'm officially freaked out, haha! But believe you me, I'll be trying this as soon as I get home.

That is creepy looking!

lori said...

i don't know what to think... we did it, too... and it does look creepy. but idk if i'm gullible or its something with the gravitational pull?

Brandi said...

I am a science nerd, and tried it with every broom I could find. It worked! So, yeah, not a hoax. And it has to do with the gravitational pull(: super cool

Anonymous said...

@Brandi, since you are a "science nerd" can you explain to me how the gravitational pull is affecting the broom standing up on its own? Thanks, I am a bullshit nerd...

It can be done on any day of the year. This hoax has popped up before with different explanations. Try it in a month - it will still work. Not saying it isn't cool to see or do, but people are always so willing to believe in supernatural reasons when sometimes it just is. I mean how often do you stand your broom up to know it can happen every time?
