Man shows off elaborate matchstick balancing trick


A man in eastern China used three matchsticks to balance a bottle of water hanging on the edge of a table.

The incredible video, filmed in Changzhou City in Jiangsu Province on December 12, shows the man using a weight to fix a matchstick on the edge of a table, then hanging a bottle of water from it using a string and a cross framework of three matches.

After the man takes the weight away, the three matchsticks can be seen still holding the bottle of water steadily without dropping it onto the ground.
