like 20 years ago i watch on tv a guy sucking a pingpong ball to the mouth of a hair drier, it was not levitation it got sucked to the mouth of the hair drier, but i just can find levitating pingpong balls on the net...

but i dont trust much my memory since i remember clearly having flown as a kid

odd is that once i was with my sister she told me she dreamed she flew but remember it as real though thought must have been a dream

do you think this experiment real?

hey then i might be able to fly, just saw heroes

hey raaaid?
Last time it was steel balls, now its ping pong balls, you seem to have a fetish for balls, dude!
Have you sought professional help yet?
Remember, these forums will not solve your problems, but will more than likely create new ones...
Personally, I'm happy with the balls I was born with, and don't need to play with any others...
anyway, hope you sort it out, mate!

Maybe lighten up and notice that he has changed his approach entirely.

Yowza Raaaid, hope you liked the how and why of the video and maybe checked out some of those
other links. There used to be a toy that worked by that, I've seen the commercials, it used
blown air (a column only of moving air, not wide) to move a toy "spaceship" around.

Gunz, that was meant entirely in a light-hearted way. If it didn't come across that way, I'll apologise to raaaid, but I'm sure he'll take it in the right spirit...

after all, raaaid is one of the true 'characters' on this forum, to my mind.

I can clearly recall dreaming that I could fly! It's quite a common childhood dream.
Sometimes I would need to stretch my arms wide and run, sometimes I just took off VTOL-style.

I can remember flying along over the gardens in my street, down the alleyways and in for a perfect 3-pointer on our lawn - knees & nose! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
(Not much different from my usual standard in FB http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif )

Think of this too. We fly a lot when we are infants. We are maybe 60cms tall (if we could stand) but we spend a lot of time at about 120-150 cms alt, being carried. Even more if you had a father who liked to throw you up in the air as so many do.

Just a thought

I once dreamed that Darth Vader chased me around in a Blackhawk, shot me in the leg with an Uzi and flew away. I woke up with severe pain in my ankle!
