Walking on Water

One of the amazing miracles that Jesus did was walking on water. We all know that one of the natural laws of the Universe is that objects heavier than water sink. However Jesus overcame this natural law, and I am now also going to overcome this law by floating a pin on this water. You all know that a pin is much heavier than water and usually sinks to the bottom. But today I am going to make it float ! Proceed to gently lower a pin onto water in a glass, and watch it float. Because water actually forms a thin film at it’s surface with the air, this flotation can really be done – provided you have a steady hand and the film isn’t broken. And, of course, ensure that nobody knocks the glass during the procedure!

If your hand isn’t too steady, you can still float the pin by placing it on a paper tissue, and lowering that onto the water. After a few seconds, the paper will have absorbed enough water to make it sink, leaving the pin floating alone.
