Well… not really… but…

I think this is pretty darn sporty. I mean you have to admit that the ability of inanimate objects to defy gravity is pretty cool. And I want one, dammit. It was only $2.99, too. I, like all of you, have owned way more than my share of cheap Chinese crap since we’ve so little choice of late, but none of those forlorn and inadequate imitations of whatever they were supposed to be could ever do what this piece does.

Note, though, that its powers are limited! Apparently it doesn’t work but in a few select places… which I find most interesting… and which will surely provide clues as to what’s really going on here. It’ll be fun to watch the speculation fly. Watch the video on the linked page… you’ll see it “in action” and find that the previous tenants had similar experiences. The site has a nice photo gallery as well… the last shot’s swell.

There’s also a property exhibited by our sweeper that paranormalists will find interesting and familiar. Well… I don’t know what to think. Very cool use of energy, that’s for sure, but the extreme localization is intriguing. Probably something to do with earth energies, ley lines and various similarly-tinged items of interest.

If you figure it out, do let us know.

There must be glue on the bristles of the broom, or there are magnets in the floor working in concert with the buildings electrical system, or maybe … just maybe … it’s something from beyond at work.

“I think it’s more strange than spooky,” said Christy Burdett, the shop’s owner, who has been working for several weeks to get the business open. “But it’s been fun.”

No, there isn’t any glue, and there are no magnets in the floor. As to something otherworldly going on, people will have to use their own judgment.

It all started out innocently enough. The broom was leaning against a set of mobile shelves when Della Benton, Burdett’s sister, moved the shelves Thursday afternoon. When Benton looked back, she was surprised to see the broom standing on the floor. Continue reading at Standing broom has folks here strawstruck
