Amazing Video Of A Crane Lifting A Car Using Two Phonebooks

You probably knew that it's impossible to pull apart two phonebooks put together with interleaving pages. But did you know that the bond — caused by the mechanical friction of the interleaving pages — is so strong that it can lift an entire car? This video demonstrates exactly that. The best part, however, may be to watch the car fall when they burn the phonebooks.

Physics people, they are just bloody amazing.

    Impressive!! but the title should read - ...2 Phonebooks. not 2 phones. very misleading.

    Considering Mythbusters had to use 2 tanks to make 2 phone books seperate, and even then they tore at the connection point, I am not at all surprised. I would have been amazed if it was actually 2 phones though

    Mmmm, maybe if you superglue one cheap, plastic android phone to another cheap, plastic android phone.......than again, probably not.

    Strong article name to video content ratio
