Most of us took science classes in school where we learned about gravity and the laws of physics. We all know how it works. Most of us have tried a few tricks that attempt to defy these laws but have been unsuccessful.
Sometimes, you see strange photos or videos and you wonder how people managed to pull things off. How were they able to balance or hangs things so that they don’t fall but are seemingly hanging or sitting on things? Some people just have a knack do that sort of trick.
You may see some photo or tricks and wonder if they are even real. They may just be too amazing and shocking to believe. Whether you love science and physics or just enjoy seeing things that seem strange or unlikely, it’s hard to look away from some of these photos.
The laws of physics are pretty clear, and you might think they are black and white. These people prove that there might be some gray areas. These photos all show people or nature appearing to defy gravity. Some will make you laugh, and others will make you gasp.
1. Cold Spaghetti
How cold does it have to be to make your spaghetti freeze from the time it leaves the bowl until it makes it to your mouth? It’s so cold that this spaghetti is able to support the fork and keep it floating in midair, as well. It makes you wonder how people even survive here.
2. He’s Good
A lot of people are good at multitasking, but this guy takes the cake. He is balancing a propane tank and watermelon on his head while riding a bicycle on a crowded road. Managing to balance just one of these things is amazing, let alone two. He needs his own circus show.
3. Great Climber
You probably already knew that goats were good at climbing mountains, but did you picture them doing it this way? You probably think that goats jump from one rock to the next. Not this one. It’s going up the old-fashioned way, and it doesn’t even need any climbing gear.
4. Magic Cup
This cup broke, and it left a pretty interesting magic trick behind. The biggest part of the cup is gone, but the handle is there. It is able to stay put and support a small piece of the cup on top. It’s pretty cool to look at.
5. The Cat That Won’t Give Up
Cats are rather good at balancing on things, but this cat is amazing at it. He is sitting on a truck’s door handle in the middle of the highway. Did it ride all the way from home like that? Did it jump on when the truck stopped? How is this happening?
6. Someone Is A Great Architect
This bridge of stones is pretty impressive. Not only is it nice to look at, it also makes you wonder how they were able to build it. It must have been hard to balance them and figure out how to get them to stay still without falling.
7. It’s Cold Outside
You know it’s cold outside when the car freezes and you can pull away and leave the ice behind. This ice is so solid that it can just stand on its own. It’s so cold that it hasn’t even started to melt yet. I wonder how long it stayed like that.
8. Frozen Flood
A flood came through this frozen forest and took away most of the ice and snow. It wasn’t high enough to get it all, so it left behind these ice sheets. They froze again and stayed attached to the tree. Now, they are just floating in the air.
9. That’s An Interesting Hobby
How long are the breaks between classes that this boy has enough time to build a giant pencil tower? He sure is good at it. He has this massive thing balancing on individual pencils. It really makes you wonder how it’s possible.
10. Jesus Dog
We all know that Jesus could walk on water, but he’s not the only one who could do it. This husky has somehow figured out how he did it. Sure, there is probably ice underneath, but it looks like water. Does he think he’s walking on water?
11. There’s A Glitch In This Dog
How is it possible that this dog is just standing on the side of a wall like this? Is it a trick of the eye or perfect timing by the photographer? It looks like a glitch in a video game. Hopefully, they got it figured out by now.
12. Which Way Is Up?
This dog might just be lying on his side with his feet against the wall. Or maybe the camera is twisted? Why would the dog choose to lie like this? Does he know he appears to be defying gravity right now?
13. Doesn’t Water Run Down?
You would think that this water would run straight down to the drain. How is it possible that it is running sideways? This is actually a sink on a cruise ship, and the way the ship is tilting is causing the water to do this.
14. Magnets Are Cool
These magnets are stacked so well that they don’t even need the hook to stay in a line. Is it the packaging? No, it’s the fact that the magnets are so strong that they can hold each other in place. Science is so fun.
15. Snow Wave
Ever thought about surfing the snow instead of sledding on it? With a snow wave like this, it’s very possible. This happened when more snow fell and pushed off an old blanket of snow. I wouldn’t want to be under that when it falls.
16. Surface Tension
This lizard is able to lie on top of the water and appear to defy gravity because of surface tension. It can spread its body out, and the flatness causes it to float. It looks crazy, but it’s just science.
17. Spider Webs Are Really Strong
You may already know it, but a lot of things are made from the thread of spiders. It’s really strong and can hold up a lot of weight. This spider happened to wrap her web around an icicle. When the icicle broke off from the roof, the web caught it. Nature is really beautiful.
18. A Coin Trick
It might look like this is a magic trick, but it really just comes down to science. The Chinese yen is an exceptionally light coin. It’s so light, it doesn’t break the surface tension on liquids. It’s always shocking to see.
19. Hopefully, They Don’t Have White Carpet
If you are going to balance a glass of wine on another glass of wine, you better know what you are doing. Whoever pulled this off somehow managed to get a coin in there. How did they manage to keep the coin from rolling?
20. He Has No Clue
This walrus doesn’t realize he appears to be breaking the laws of physics; he is just trying to rest on the ice. Of course, one wrong move, and he will fall on his tail. Luckily, he doesn’t have too far to go.
21. Who Stacks These?
There are just some things that shouldn’t be stacked. Bowling balls are one of those things. It’s hard to figure out how he did this and even harder to understand why he did it. Can you imagine if these fell and smashed someone’s toe?
22. Cool Cat
This cat is looking so cool just sitting on this box doing whatever he pleases. He has no idea that he is doing a balancing act. If he fell, he would get up and walk away like nothing even happened. That’s just how cats are.
23. It Could Go At Any Time
This photo could be credited with perfect timing, but the photographer claims that the branch balanced like that for a week. The water washed all around it, and it still never fell over the side. Eventually, it did get washed away, but not before this photo was taken.
24. Penny Drops
How many drops of water can fit on a penny before it spills over? The answer is 137, and this is what it looks like when photographed. It’s really amazing to see something like this up close.
25. Pringle Art
Pringles are pretty tasty — and pretty fun to play around with. You can make duck faces and stack them. Apparently, you can also make a border for your dogs. These dogs just want to eat the chips. They don’t care about the artwork.
26. He Has Some Cool Friends
A lot of kids are into balancing things. In fact, there are a lot of worse things these kids could be doing besides this. This kid has some cool friends. They are also smart.
27. Piano Stacks
This is the kind of thing you don’t see very often and may never see in real life. These pianos are stacked up high and only visible during low tide. When the tide comes in, they are covered up, and the magic is lost until the water goes back down.
28. Cool Coolers
Someone is really good at stacking coolers. They made a cooler bridge, and it’s actually staying in place. There could be a lawsuit if it falls on a customer, though. One little push, and they could all come tumbling down.
29. Someone Has To Move It
These kids are in trouble. Mom is going to walk over and pick this glass up without thinking about it and make a mess. Then, she’s going to be giving out some punishments. The question is, how did they even pull this off without making a mess?
30. Get Back To Work
When people are doing big projects, they almost welcome a break. You know this physics-defying trick came from a bet. Someone bet that it wasn’t possible, and then someone had to prove them wrong. I wonder how much was at stake for this bet?
31. The Bench Wasn’t Dangerous Enough
Have you ever been sitting on a bench and thought about how you were playing it to safe? This guy can’t take it anymore. He needed a more challenging way to study. Now he can balance his books and his love for a danger.
32. This Guy Knows His Science
This guy has done this before, and now, he feels confident enough about it to take a photo while he does it. Sure, he may have mastered this amazing trick, but centripetal force might also have a thing or two to do with it. He can’t take all the credit.
33. That’s Impressive
How many times do you have to practice this before it gets easy? This would be an enjoyable way to leave your mark on every restaurant you have ever visited. Maybe you could even find a way to balance the cutlery on the tip money for the server.
34. Snow Or Frozen Inchworm?
Sometimes, nature even appears to defy the laws of physics. How did the snow get this way? Why didn’t it just stick to the pole the entire way down? It looks like it’s trying to make its way up or down the pole like an inchworm. Nature is crazy.
35. This Takes Talent
You know you have too much free time in class when you are able to make something like this out of rulers and a water bottle. It looks like a giant wooden snowflake. Maybe this was for a class project? It’s likely someone was just bored.
