I’m sure some kind of non-magical explanation exists, something involving balance and leverage and gravity and whatnot, but you can go ahead and search the internet for a scientific explanation if you want one. See, I’m encouraging self-reliance (like Emerson!) and resourcefulness. Or else, if you can explain this phenomenon, just leave it in the comments.
