Someone at work said something about being able to stand a broom up today because of some kind of planetary alignment or whatever. I did not really think anything of it because most people are idiots. I got home and looked on facebook and three people in a row had pictures of a broom standing up.
I decided to try it for myself. And as it turns out, a broom will stand up. I noticed something though and mentioned it to Lindsey: the broom seemed to stand on it's own because of the bristles spreading out and creating a base. I also made a joke that it probably has something to do with an odd center of gravity.
As it turns out, I was pretty much right. Check it out.
