September at the main FCP site: (1) Quicksand and how to escape it. (2) Pub trick: picking up a shot glass with only your palm. (3) The notorious instability of the three-wheeled Reliant Robin car, as seen on Top Gear---taking a turn usually means rolling the car over. Tough to get across town that way. (4) An animal with mineral eyes. (5) My 1989 article about the physics of inflating a balloon---why is the inflation initially so difficult?
