Stupid Patron Tricks

Topic: 

Found this weird little startle-the-librarian trick on TheHook.com.
"You locate several books of nearly equal size and weight, and begin by placing one overhanging a library tabletop edge just far enough so the book's center of mass does not engender torquefall to the floor." TheHook.com, by the way is the homepage for Charlottesville, VA. They sure have some pranksters, there, I'm tellin' ya.

Its the 'trial and error' bit that has me worried about replacement budgets...

My high school physics teacher used to tell us that he'd done this, back in the day.
